WATER & ENERGY SAVINGS

Chemstar WATER scours the industry for new technologies to bring the lowest cost, most sustainable, and environmentally friendly solutions to its customers. Chemstar WATER’s position as being OEM agnostic allows it to find the best technology to provide the right solution to meet the customers’ requirements.

Because the evaporative cooling systems are designed to evaporate water, they directly affect the water consumption and water savings of the plant. One of the ways to optimize cooling systems is to pretreat the incoming make-up water to remove divalent ions that would eventually increase the cycles of concentration in the cooling tower and reduce water consumption. Due to the lower recovery rates, such systems make limited improvements. Chemstar WATER has jointly developed an electrodialysis reversal-based system to improve the cycles on the concentration of a cooling tower by pretreating the make-up and recovering the cooling tower blowdown, achieving significant levels of water savings.

Chemstar WATER can also help you obtain an additional LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) credit as a result of this improvement in the cooling water systems.

Furthermore, we help improve your energy and carbon footprint by reducing the use of chemicals utilizing on-site, on-demand, chemical generation systems, such as on-site mixed oxidant generators, hypochlorite generators, and many others. These on-site generation systems are not only environmentally friendly but also significantly safer than hazardous chemicals.

Microbiological Control

Chemstar WATER has developed and fine-tuned its microbiological control program and proved itself in helping mitigate many microbiological challenges. We recommend our customers adopt a robust water management program to control microbiological activity, especially Legionella Pneumophila, through effective biofilm control in their cooling and potable water systems.
We use state of the art technologies to detect microbiological activity, such as adenosine triphosphate (ATP) monitors, proprietary quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) testing systems as well as partnering with reputable laboratories.

Chemstar WATER has years of experience in utilizing on-site disinfection technologies, such as mixed oxidant generators, hypochlorite generators out of food-grade salt applied with water and power. We know the challenges you face in fighting microbiological, biofilm, and fungal activities, and are ready to partner with you in creating a customized solution to mitigate them.

Boiler Systems

At Chemstar WATER, we have designed our boiler systems treatment programs to protect the integrity of boilers and all related heat exchange equipment such as economizers, air preheaters, deaerators, superheaters, and steam turbines.

Because boiler systems are energy-intensive and costly, it is in our customers’ best interest to maximize boiler efficiency through increased steam production and reduced fuel consumption. The first step is to ensure steam and condensate losses are controlled well, which includes treating condensate return. The second step is minimizing blowdown, which can be achieved by using makeup water pretreatment systems including water filtration and softening systems, demineralizers, dealkalizers, reverse osmosis systems, electrodialysis reversal as well as water treatment chemicals such as polymer organics. Through these methods, usually, our customers’ energy savings are more than their annual water treatment costs.

Since makeup water quality changes and discharge requirements differ depending on the location, we tailor water treatment programs specifically for each customer. This enables Chemstar WATER to achieve:

  • lowest optimum boiler blowdown resulting in water and associated energy savings
  • extended life of boiler tubes
  • 24/7 remote monitoring of the key indicators with control ranges
  • improved plant uptime by eradicating scale and corrosion-related downtimes
  • regular reporting of key indicators and suggested proactive measures

COOLING WATER SYSTEMS

Chemstar WATER has developed and fine-tuned its cooling systems water treatment program and proved itself in helping mitigate the microbiological activity. Chemstar WATER recommends our customers adopt a robust water management program to control microbiological activity, especially Legionella Pneumophila, through effective biofilm control. Chemstar WATER has also proven itself in extending the life of direct and indirect evaporative cooling systems, adiabatic cooling systems, heat exchangers, and once-thru cooling systems including ocean make-up intakes as well as process equipment.

We use state of the art technologies to detect microbiological activity, such as inline adenosine triphosphate (ATP) monitors, proprietary quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) testing systems as well as leveraging our partnerships with reputable laboratories.

Our programs are designed to control mild-steel and copper corrosion, mineral scale deposits, biofilm growth, and system fouling. Our cooling-systems water treatment formulations are environmentally friendly and meet the most stringent discharge guidelines.

Evaporative cooling systems directly affect the water consumption and usage effectiveness of a plant. One way to optimize cooling systems is to pretreat incoming make-up water to remove divalent ions. Due to the lower recovery rates, such systems make improvements limited. Chemstar WATER has jointly developed an electrodialysis reversal-based system to improve the cycles on the concentration of a cooling tower by pretreating the make-up and recovering the cooling tower blowdown, achieving significant water savings.

We tailor water treatment programs specific for each customer. This enables us to achieve peace of mind for our customers through:

  • microbiological control
  • high cycles of concentration
  • low corrosion and scale formation
  • 24/7 remote monitoring of the key indicators with control ranges
  • improved plant uptime by eradicating scale and corrosion-related downtimes
  • regular reporting of key indicators and suggested proactive measures

Influent Water Treatment

Although each customer’s water treatment requirements are different, generally we believe treating the plant make-up water upfront is more effective than treating the water chemically when it is in the boiler and cooling systems. With this approach, we believe that our customers can achieve the lowest cost of operation in the long run.

Chemstar WATER prides itself on utilizing the latest cutting-edge technology from the industry when solving our customers’ water treatment challenges. In the case of feed water treatment, we utilize a wide variety of technologies such as water filtration and softening systems, demineralizers, dealkalizers, reverse osmosis, electrodialysis reversal, electro deionization, and electrolysis processes.

Treating incoming water to the facility is a key first step to minimize the microbial contamination downstream. Chemstar WATER has been a trusted provider for secondary potable disinfection systems for many commercial and residential buildings.
