Electrochemical treatment saves water, reduces costs

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

Dynamic Water Technologies

The Universal Environmental Technology (UET) reactor (photo) is an electrochemical treatment system that balances process water, allowing it to be reused for multiple cycles. The technology offers multiple benefits, including water conservation, cost reductions, elimination of nearly all chemicals during treatment, maintenance savings, energy savings, increased equipment life and reduced downtime. One of the largest areas of savings is on blowdown — water that is discharged from cooling towers because of mineral buildup. The system increases the number of cycles that water can be used from about three in traditional chemical treatment to more than double that with the UET system. This also dramatically reduces the amount of makeup water needed to replenish the systems, according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the U.S. General Service Administration — independent agencies that monitored an installation in Savannah, Ga. — Dynamic Water Technologies, LLC, Scottsdale, Ariz.
