Cooling Water Treatment


Is Managing Your Cooling System Important?

Buckman Cooling systemIndustrial cooling water systems present complex and interconnected challenges, which if left unaddressed can result in serious consequences to your operations. Equipment failure and reduced heat transfer efficiency can result from:

  • Unaddressed scaling
  • Fouling
  • Corrosion
  • Microbiological issues

These factors further cause unplanned downtime and frequent equipment repairs which are incredibly costly. Hydrite is here to help address and control these challenges in a sophisticated yet simplified approach that gives you the confidence and peace of mind that your cooling water systems are operating efficiently and unplanned downtime and equipment failures will be avoided. By implementing Ackumen cooling water system management as part of a carefully selected treatment program, you will have a complete solution that optimizes performance 24/7/365 and recognizes and addresses potential problems before they become a threat to your operation, maintaining peak operating efficiency and driving down operating costs.

Scale and Corrosion Inhibitors

No two water sources are exactly alike, which is why Hydrite carries a wide range of high-performance scale and corrosion inhibitors to address the unique challenges at your site. Whether your challenges are corrosion, scaling, or both, Hydrite will identify an optimized program to tackle those challenges. By using a sophisticated modeling program, Hydrite can not only select the proper treatment, but can also identify inefficiencies and opportunities to reduce water consumption while maintaining peak heat transfer efficiency and system performance. Hydrite will help you manage the most challenging conditions with confidence.

Smart feeding & inventory management boost efficiency even more.

Ackumen Cooling Management features the only smart feeder on the market, which uses easy-to-handle solid chemistries and interfaces with SMART Inventory, an automatic inventory control system that uses IoT sensors to monitor chemical consumption and compare to overall closed loop efficiency. We manage inventory so you don’t have to.

Expert monitoring & predictive modeling keep you protected.

With Ackumen, you can dramatically simplify cooling water management and optimize performance around the clock. Ackumen provides 24/7 monitoring and program adjustment through the Insights Lab, a team of water experts trained to deal with events as they happen, assessing alarms and taking the appropriate action. These experts, working closely with data scientists, enable us to see around the bend and analyze patterns that are not visible to the naked eye.
