Jan. 22, 2010 -- UK-based Fluid Dynamics International and US based Texas A&M University are collaborating in relation to the prevention of scaling caused by brackish water in a novel water evaporator system developed by the University.

The evaporator for the production of drinking water developed by Texas A&M will use Fluid Dynamics catalytic technology to reduce scaling caused by calcium carbonate in the equipment. Scaling is a problem throughout much of the world and traditional methods of chemical treatment or softening can give rise to pollution or harmful by products so the University have chosen Fluid Dynamics non-chemical catalytic technology to ensure minimum environmental impact for their equipment.

Dr. Jorge Lara Researcher at Texas A&M comments that "We are really pleased to be co-operating with Fluid Dynamics. By combining our novel technology with Fluid Dynamics extensive experience and its scale prevention technology we believe that our evaporator could make a major contribution to supplementing the supply of drinking water around the world."

Fluid Dynamics, established in 1973 exports catalytic scale preventions systems all over the world treating whole towns, individual pieces of industrial equipment or private homes with users such as Cambridge University, Unilever, Kellogg's and thousands more. The products are proven to save energy, reduce pollution and give rise to significant financial savings.
