AS Inc.’s technology, the AS-8310 treatment program, provides excellent mild steel corrosion control. A tin compound, tolytriazole, HEDP, and poly carboxylate polymer fed at a maintenance level of 100 ppm, it’s formulated to be highly competitive with less environmentally sensitive treatment and can successfully replace phosphate based corrosion inhibitors. The treatment can improve heat transfer, due to cleaner surfaces creating lower scaling potential, and can significantly reduce microbiologically induced corrosion (MIC).

Water softeners are needed as pre-treatment stages for pure-water generation systems, but they also harbour a risk –ion exchange resins offer a large surface area for the growth of microorganisms that could contaminate water with high germ counts that could endanger production processes. With the germ-reducing regeneration tablets Sanisal P, Christ Water Technology Group has developed a simple and safe method for sanitizing water softener resins and brine tanks with significant advantages over conventional chemical or thermal sanitization methods, including no need for system shutdown during the process.

Harmonic distortion

Danfoss Drives has engineered a new Active Filter solution that virtually eliminates harmonic distortion in water and wastewater applications for maximized grid capacity, as well as system wide operational efficiency and reliability. The solution is built on Danfoss’ VLT variable frequency drive technology and engineered to mitigate harmonics to a lower level than passive and 18 pulse options. It will do so from any point of installation, either at the drive or the common point of coupling. Danfoss Drives, Milwaukee, WI, 800-621-8806, www.danfossdrives.com
