“Like New” Clean, Chemical-Free
CQM’s Scale Removal System (SRS) is the cost-effective, chemical-free way to keep your heat transfer surfaces “like new” clean. With other systems, chemically treating water provides only a partial solution, perilous chemical balance, and requires expensive chemical handling and disposal.
Eliminates Chemical Treatment
Our SRS removes scale and prevents sludge buildup in both open loop and closed loop cooling circuits — eliminating the need for chemical water treatment and manual cleaning. It also protects from corrosion and kills 100% of biolife.
Increases Energy Efficiency
Fouled condenser tubes and scale-covered cooling tower fill media prevent efficient heat transfer. With the SRS, you get 100% clean tubes and tower fill media, improving your efficiency. The SRS is also effective at higher cycles of concentration than chemical water treatment, allowing you to conserve water by reducing cooling tower blowdown rates by up to 80%.
Zaps Scale with Innovative Electrolysis
The CQM SRS uses an innovative electrolysis process to provide effective chemical-free water treatment. A large cathode area creates a high pH environment that encourages scale formation inside the reaction tank. The hydrocyclonic action ensures that all the water will be treated.
Additionally, the electrolysis process often removes existing scale build-up on tower fill media and heat transfer surfaces. The electrolysis disturbs the chemical balance of the water, which makes it attack existing scale as a means to restore equilibrium. An additional benefit is the creation of chlorine in small quantities, which eliminates algae and bacteria that may otherwise develop in the water.
