Utility Water Treatment
Our highly experienced application experts and local water treatment specialists can provide a wide array of treatment solutions for your utility systems.
Boiler & Steam System Treatment
ChemTreat offers a full line of boiler water treatment chemicals, testing, and control equipment. Our programs can help you increase system efficiency, decrease plant downtime and maintenance costs, and extend equipment life.
Cooling System Treatment
Our cooling treatment programs start with an assessment of your process, water chemistry, cooling requirements, and cooling system metallurgy. This allows us to understand your system needs and develop a custom program to help you reduce corrosion, scale, and/or fouling issues.
Applying our products can help you keep your system running at peak efficiency, extend equipment life and reduce water usage.
We also offer state-of-the-art control and water monitoring technology with DCS compatibility to help increase reliability and decrease costs.
FlexPro®: A Breakthrough Innovation for Cooling System Treatment
ChemTreat’s FlexPro product line includes a wide range of treatment options for corrosive, scaling, and reclaim waters. Many FlexPro products do not contain phosphates or zinc, helping facilities meet environmental goals while improving the efficiency of their cooling systems.
Benefits of FlexPro over industry-standard phosphate scale and corrosion inhibitor programs include:
- Excellent corrosion protection
- Exceptional fouling and scaling control with non-phosphorus antiscalants
- Fluorescent tracing for automatic feed and precise control
- Phosphorus-free and zinc-free options available to help you meet environmental goals
- Enhanced reliability thanks to extended turnaround times
- Increased throughput and improved efficiency
- Improved biological control that requires less chlorine
- Simplified startup and passivation
- Reduced calcium phosphate and zinc deposition
UAN and AN Corrosion Inhibition with FlexFilm™
Urea ammonium nitrate (UAN) and ammonium nitrate (AN) are highly corrosive liquid fertilizer products. Corrosion of mild steel equipment used for processing, transporting, and storing UAN/AN solution can be extensive.
Treating UAN and AN corrosion with the right inhibitor can help ammonia plants avoid unscheduled plant shutdowns, preserve assets such as storage tanks and rail cars, and meet environmental goals.
ChemTreat’s FlexFilm series of products provides excellent corrosion inhibition for mild steel under various operating conditions. These products are a synergistic combination of surface-active agents and organic acids for corrosion protection. As can be seen from the data below, FlexFilm products are shown to provide superior corrosion inhibition in the liquid phase and in the liquid/vapor interphase.
