Cooling Water Treatment

Cooling water is the process of removing heat from temperature sensitive equipment, thereby keeping it from malfunctioning or failing. Cooling water is the preferred method of cooling for many companies due to water’s inexpensive, nontoxic, and reusable nature. However, this cooling method does have a few major drawbacks if the cooling water is left untreated.

Untreated cooling water accelerates corrosion in metal pipes and holding tanks, allows biological growth, and leaves behind deposits from the minerals in the water supply. A system not properly maintained will cause losses in productivity due to equipment failures, health and safety concerns, increased energy consumption (due to buildup of deposits), and higher production costs.

Our cooling water deposit and corrosion control programs make use of the most up-to-date technologies to keep your system operating efficiently. We have expertise in biofilm control to help minimize problems caused by microorganisms, including fouling, deposits, corrosion, and disease (i.e. Legionellosis).

To limit deposit and corrosion problems, we offer a complete line of speciality cooling water treatment products. We have a vast array of high performance threshold inhibitors, dispersants, and corrosion inhibitors which we can customize to fit your specific needs. Since we can custom blend products, we can also create products for any unique conditions you business might be facing.

Water Quality Month: Waste Water Management

Here at WCA, our new water treatment technologies are focused on efficient waste management. Factories and plants use a great deal of water, and in this economy, every gallon counts. Minimizing waste water is beneficial not only to a company but to the environment. Contaminated waste water from plants and factories can create pollution if not treated and disposed of properly. Reducing the amount of waste water being disposed of can have significant impact on the environment and keep costs down.

Before industrial waste water can be disposed of, it must be treated. The waste water can be sent to treatment facilities or treated at the plant before disposal. While both can be costly, reducing the amount of water being used can aid in the cost-effectiveness of disposal.

Factories should take steps to reduce their water footprint and prevent pollution by reevaluating the amount of water being used from intake to discharge. It’s important to include all utilities including irrigation, wash water, and boiler feeds. Recycling water to reduce usage during the manufacturing process can save gallons of water each year, as well as money. Through better water treatment, companies can improve their public image by understanding the importance of proper waste water management.

At WCA, we can help you create an effective water management system to decrease your company’s water usage. Visit our website for more information:

WCAReports: Modernizing the Water Treament Industry

We live in a digitized world. Everything is online and/or in a digital format that can be accessed virtually anywhere. We here at WCA use modern technology to better manage the water treatment industry with WCAReports. This program eliminates the need for traditional pencil and paper used by most water treatment companies with a modernized, web-based reporting system.

Through this system, our employees can document service reports, compile data, and manage the customer’s controller. When a WCAemployee comes to service your water system, they record everything in our WCAReports system. This system provides full reports including the ability to create charts and graphs of the results as well as a color-coding system that better organizes the findings. The colors range from green to red, where green is within range and red is farthest out of range. Results that fall within the red range can have comments from the technicians on the necessary actions that need to be taken to fix the problem.

The WCAReports can also “communicate” with the customer’s controller. By correctly configuring your compatible controller, your system can automatically send data to WCAReports over the Internet. We can then use this data to monitor evaporation credits, inventory usage, and elution studies. This data can then be combined with the service reports to create a comprehensive profile that can be emailed directly to you.

Through this online system, we can efficiently and accurately manage your water treatment system. With the ability to access the information at any time and in any place with an Internet connection, maintaining your system has never been easier. Visit our website for more information on WCAReports and our other services.
