Water Treatment Automation A Key Component To Sustainability

Industrial and utility water systems are some of the largest users of water in the world. In those systems a properly engineered water treatment program can do more to preserve valuable assets and maximize energy efficiency than any other investment. One critical element of a functional water treatment program is advanced automation. Maximizing control of your water treatment can take on many levels— from the basic on-site conductivity controller to the remotely monitored, real-time feed and control system. Nashville Chemical has the equipment and trained field engineers to ensure you have the best water treatment control for program success. All of us want cleaner water and cleaner air. Utilizing proper water treatment automation will ensure your manufacturing processes and water-cooled equipment operate utilizing the least amount of fossil fuel possible.

Real-Time, On-Line Monitoring and Control:

Nashville Chemical utilizes fluorescent molecules in conjunction with the highest quality water treatment formulations to bring treatment control to a new level of accuracy. Utilization of Nashville Chemical products in conjunction with an on-line fluorometer can result in control bands of  +/- 3% in cooling water systems. Minimizing water treatment additives while maximizing operational efficiency is good for the environment and good for your bottom line!

Remote Monitoring:

With ever shrinking maintenance budgets and increased equipment complexity, maximizing efficiency is more important than ever. One way to improve profitability is to monitor industrial process water systems remotely. Nashville Chemical can utilize existing communication hardware or state-of-the-art wireless connections to monitor treated water systems. By installing a remote monitoring system, your Nashville Chemical representative can be an even more valuable asset in providing a return on your water treatment investment.

Program Management:

Given today’s tight  environmental restrictions on clean water and air, simply  adding treatment and recording test results is not sufficient. Collecting accurate system data and organizing it in a format where it can be analyzed and used to improve efficiency is essential. web-based software is designed specifically for the management and control of your water treatment program. See how the most innovative technology in the water treatment industry can make a difference for you.

Cooling Water Treatment Maximizing equipment efficiency and preserving valuable plant assets

Cooling water systems are used for temperature control in multiple types of facilities to include manufacturing, commercial buildings, HVAC for comfort cooling, healthcare and food processing. If left untreated, the metal surfaces of cooling towers, chillers heat exchangers and associated piping that make up the system can develop insulating scale, become corroded, lose efficiency due to fouling or become contaminated with microbiological growth. To maximize equipment efficiency and preserve valuable plant assets it is essential that a high quality water treatment program be engineered for the system.

Nashville Chemical has developed a diverse product line for the proper treatment of all types of cooling water systems. Utilizing scientifically advanced technologies, we offer corrosion and scale inhibitors designed for all types of waters, microbiocides to control a wide variation of waterborne pathogens and a wide selection of equipment to ensure optimal control of cooling water programs.

Legionella Risk Management The key to minimize a potential outbreak is to institute a best practices water systems treatment program

Legionnaires’ disease was first recognized in July 1976 following the mysterious outbreak at The American Legion convention in Philadelphia. Legionella bacteria are the waterborne pathogens that are responsible for humans contracting Legionnaires’ disease; a pneumonia-like sickness which has caused numerous illness outbreaks and, in severe cases death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), between 8,000 and 18,000 people are hospitalized with Legionnaires’ disease in the United States each year. Legionnaires’ disease is a legitimate public health concern as its fatality rate during an outbreak ranges from 5% to 30% of those who contract the disease. The immediate consequences for a building owner or manager faced with liability claims and negative publicity can be devastating and very costly.
While there is no current state or federal laws that dictate Legionella control and monitoring, most industry experts agree that proactively managing Legionella bacteria in cooling towers and water systems is more cost effective and safer for humans than responding to an out-break. Nashville Chemical recommends cooling tower owners and operators maintain an effective biocide program in conjunction with an appropriate deposit inhibitor program and periodic tower cleaning to help minimize the potential for an outbreak.  We believe Legionella-specific testing is the best measure of the potential threat a water system can be to humans. Once the test results are known, a plan of remediation can be engineered and executed, if needed.
There are numerous professional organizations which have published guidelines or protocol for the prevention of Legionella bacteria in cooling towers. The key to minimizing a potential outbreak is to institute a best practices water systems treatment program and to adopt an accepted protocol, and, if necessary, follow up with testing and sterilization. Nashville Chemical is well versed with the protocols from:
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
  • The Association of Water Technologists (AWT)
  • American Society of Heating and Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)
  • Cooling Technology Institute (CTI)
  • World Health Organization (WHO)
  • Joint Commission for Healthcare Facilities
    (JCAHO)
  • Occupational Safety and Health
    Organization (OSHA)
If a fully accepted protocol is adopted and proper steps taken, the potential for an outbreak is very low and the actions taken by a cooling water operator are defensible. Nashville Chemical can help in developing the right solution to protect your organization from a Legionella outbreak.
