New Product Development

New product development is a key factor in the ChemTreat success story. Our research and development group is composed of some of the most innovative and focused minds in water treatment product development, leading to the creation of 1,200 proprietary product formulations.

DEVELOPING FOR THE FUTURE

Our proprietary product formulations are carefully selected and incorporated into your plant or operation by our field engineers who have the most experience providing water treatment service in the industry.

A critical component in our new product development process is the feedback we receive from our customers. We encourage our field engineers to remain in their territory for the duration of their career, leading to deep, long-term relationships with our customers. Through these relationships, we receive the very best feedback from the field regarding operational performance and the latest operating requirements, allowing us to create even better solutions.

Our solutions include:

TITAN360

TITAN360 is a mixture of neutralizing amines, an organic corrosion inhibitor, and a dispersant, effectively treating the water-steam cycle without multiple chemical feed points. With a simple test kit, applying TITAN360 provides peace of mind that the proper treatment level is maintained. TITAN360 is a low-toxicity, easy-to-apply alternative to the traditional multi-chemical boiler treatment program. See our infographic to learn more.

FlexPro®

FlexPro is a breakthrough innovation in cooling water treatment specifically designed to work on a broad range of cooling systems. This product line includes phosphorus-free and zinc-free technology (as well as low-phosphorus and low-zinc options) for corrosive, scaling, and reclaim waters.

QuatKill®

ChemTreat’s QuatKill is an innovative Colorimetric test kit that measures free quat concentration in wastewater treatment systems, delivering fast results over a wide concentration range. QuatKill provides a method to quickly and accurately measure quat concentrations, and when used with our product QK1000, provides a solution to neutralize quaternary ammonium compounds.
