Avoiding air-duct And Vent Cleaning is Unattractive For Business: Part Two - 25 Jul 2019 11:06


This is PART 2 of larger post. If you want to what Smart Release Technology is, please read ?Is Smart Release Technology Right for Your Cooling Towers? PART 1??In PART 1, we discussed what Smart Release Technology for cooling towers is and how it works. Now we can discuss the many benefits of a water treatment program that uses Smart Release Technology over a traditional liquid program.Why Do I Care if My Water Treatment Company Uses Smart Release Technology or Not?black-silver-polymer-clay-pendant-necklace-on-cord-georgia-p-designs-4.jpg Many people do not realize that Clarity Water Technologies is not only one of best industrial water treatment companies in New York, but we are also a very busy cooling tower cleaning company in New York City; so we see a LOT of cooling towers. It still makes us scratch our heads when we see a cooling tower without proper treatment; but it does happen more than you would think. When we would ask why a facility wasn't treating their tower, many times it was because they didn't want to deal with the hazardous aspects liquid chemistry. We immediately saw that their was a need for a better way. More and more commercial and industrial facilities are looking for environmetally-friendly, green water treatment options. When we developed our EcoSafe Solid Feed System, we wanted to make sure that we could provide the ergonomic benefits of solid chemistry with the precision and results of liquid chemistry, that would still be safer for the environment. Smart Release was the perfect solution. Because EcoSafe is powered by Smart Release?, the benefits that we can offer to our customers are staggering. Here are just some of them:EcoSafe Water Treatment Products powered by Smart Release? can reduce the carbon footprint of a traditional liquid water treatment program by over 75%!Products that use Smart Release Technology are safer than traditional liquid chemicals. FACT: When held in the palm of your hand, EcoSafe Corrosion Inhibitors are safer than Aspirin. Not only are Smart Release chemicals safer in general, but because they are dry chemicals, there is no way that someone could ever mistake our Smart Release EcoSafe products for a liquid cleaner or detergent. Liquid biocides are often shipped in the same types of drums and pails as liquid window cleaners. It is not impossible for a Facility Maintenance person to accidentally fill their cleaning bottle with the wrong chemical. The result of this could be devastating.Shipping Smart Release products is less expensive and better for our environment. There is no water being shipped which means they are lighter and require less fuel to be burned in the shipping process. (YES, amount of fuel required to deliver a product to a facility does factor into a water treatment program?s overall carbon footprint.) This also means that there is a substantial reduction in the amount of plastics that need to be produced to hold the liquid. But the real plus here is ease of handling. What would you rather carry? Four 40lb containers filled with liquid, or one 25lb cardboard box filled with EcoSafe? They?ll both treat the same amount of cooling water?There is no pale or drum disposal with Smart Release? tablets. When the chemical is exhausted after 30 days, the empty tablet ?skins?? that are left behind can be thrown directly into the trash. The completely hands-off packaging of our EcoSafe System?s Smart Release? biocides eliminates the potential for human contact with biocide.A water treatment program that uses Smart Release Technology is going to benefit from consistent chemical release over time. As long as a cooling system is operational and water is running through our EcoSafe Solid Feed System for Cooling Towers, the system water is being treated.Unlike traditional liquid chemistries which require stabilizers to keep raw materials in solution, Smart Release allows chemical concentration to be at least 97% active as the salts. Using a Smart Release water treatment helps eliminate the discharge of harmful chemicals into waterways.Because our EcoSafe System uses Smart Release? Technology, it gives our customers the opportunity to Go Green. There are no container disposal issues, our products are shipped as non-hazardous chemical in recyclable cardboard packaging (lower carbon footprint), it uses no additional electricity and it could qualify a building for additional points LEED certification.Smart Release saves space. An EcoSafe Solid Feed System for Cooling Towers powered by Smart Release takes up much less space than a comparable liquid water treatment program with equal or better results.Are There Smart Release Products for Boilers?We do not know of any Smart Release? Technology based products for boilers that are available at this time. However, we do have our research and development team exploring the possibilities. The major challenge with creating an EcoSafe product for boilers powered by Smart Release has to do with the Smart Release polymer coating and how it reacts to high temperature. In a high heat environment the polymer coating degrades and there the prolonged release rate cannot be maintained. There are also issues that would need to be addressed for high pressure systems. The ?smart?? feeders themselves would need a redesign; today they are made of a high grade PVC material and are not rated for extremely high heat or pressure.How Big Are EcoSafe Smart Feeders?The Smart Release feeders that we use to administer the EcoSafe water treatment chemical are only 9 inches wide and they do not require containment. Even once the valves are installed; it only increases the width to 11 inches. The feeders come in three different sizes depending on the amount of water that needs to be treated within a 30-day period. Small, medium, and large feeders are 21 inches, 34 inches and 49 inches tall respectively. In general, an EcoSafe water treatment system powered by Smart Release? is typically 1/3 of the size of traditional liquid water treatment feed station. This makes it the perfect choice for treating cooling systems that have mechanical rooms with very limited space, or for a pre-fabricated chiller plant that sometimes has very limited room for water treatment. If you are considering installing or have recently installed an Epsilon pre-fabricated chiller plant, EcoSafe may be the perfect solution for your water treatment program. Depending on the layout of your plant, water treatment for the Epsilon prefabricated chiller plant may need to occupy a very small footprint.Want to Learn More About Smart Release Technology?If you are a water treatment professional, or someone with water treatment experience, the benefits of using Smart Release presents probably sounds pretty good to you.

(SoCalGas) today announced the California Energy Commission (CEC) has awarded the company a $3 million grant to fund the next phase of development list of polymers a new technology that doubles the amount of renewable energy created from the decomposition of organic material at wastewater treatment plants. The new process, known as Hydrothermal Processing (HTP), reduces greenhouse gas emissions by three times that of traditional anaerobic digestion and costs about half. HTP is highly efficient, using heat and pressure to capture 86 percent of the energy in the waste and using only 14 percent to process it. A pilot project, to be located at the Central Contra Costa Sanitary District ("Central San") Wastewater Treatment Plant in Martinez, California. The work is being funded in part by the California Energy Commission, SoCalGas and other private participants.DDD.jpg "Technological advances, like hydrothermal processing, are an important part of SoCalGas' vision to be the cleanest natural gas utility in North America and will help us meet our commitment of to deliver renewable natural gas to homes and businesses," said Ron Kent, Technology Development Manager at SoCalGas. "This new technology holds the potential to convert not only wastewater, but landfill, forestry and food waste into carbon-neutral renewable energy that displaces fossil fuels and helps California meet its climate goals.""The best thing about HTP is how simple it is," said Corinne Drennan, who is responsible for bioenergy technologies research at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. "The reactor is literally a hot, pressurized tube. We've really accelerated hydrothermal conversion technology over the last seven years to create a continuous, and scalable process which allows the use of wet wastes like sewage sludge without the need for drying it first. And we're excited to see HTP piloted beyond the lab, at an actual waste treatment plant.""The project will lay the groundwork for full-scale commercial hydrothermal processing plants that could revolutionize the way renewable energy is produced at wastewater treatment plants," said James Oyler, president of Genifuel Corporation, which produces the HTP equipment patented by PNNL. "Unlike anaerobic digestion, this technology completely eliminates leftover biosolids. Getting rid of the biosolids hauled to landfills would significantly reduce costs for wastewater treatment facilities."The project team is comprised of a number of industry leaders, including: SoCalGas, the Water Research Foundation, Central San, PNNL, Genifuel Corporation, Merrick & Company, Black & Veatch, Brown and Caldwell, MicroBio Engineering, Leidos, and others.Earlier this month, SoCalGas announced a broad, inclusive and integrated plan to help achieve California's ambitious environmental goals in a paper titled California's Clean Energy Future: Imagine the Possibilities. The plan embraces an all-of-the-above approach to fight climate change, keeps energy affordability as a key focus, calls for developing long-term renewable energy storage using existing infrastructure, and can aid in promoting rapid consumer adoption. The new strategy comes one month after SoCalGas announced its vision to be the cleanest natural gas utility in North America, delivering affordable and increasingly renewable energy to its customers.As part of that vision, SoCalGas committed to replace 20 percent of its traditional natural gas supply with renewable natural gas (RNG) by 2030. Research shows that replacing about 20 percent of California's traditional natural gas supply with RNG would lower emissions equal to retrofitting every building in the state to run on electric only energy and at a fraction of the cost. Using RNG in buildings can be two to three times less expensive than any all-electric strategy and does not require families or businesses to purchase new appliances or take on costly construction projects.In California, scientists at the University of California, Davis estimate that the state's existing organic waste could produce enough RNG to meet the needs of 2.3 million homes.About SoCalGasHeadquartered in Los Angeles, SoCalGas? is the largest natural gas distribution utility in the United States. SoCalGas delivers affordable, reliable, clean and increasingly renewable natural gas service to 21.8 million customers across 24,000 square miles of Central and Southern California, where more than 90 percent of residents use natural gas for heating, hot water, cooking, drying clothes or other uses. Natural gas delivered through the company's pipelines also plays a key role in providing electricity to Californians ? about 45 percent of electric power generated in the state comes from gas-fired power plants.SoCalGas' vision is to be the cleanest natural gas utility in North America, delivering affordable and increasingly renewable energy to its customers. In support of that vision, SoCalGas is committed to replacing 20 percent of its traditional natural gas supply with renewable natural gas (RNG) by 2030. Renewable natural gas is made from waste created by dairy farms, landfills and wastewater treatment plants. SoCalGas is also committed to investing in its natural gas system infrastructure while keeping bills affordable for our customers. From 2014 through 2018, the company invested nearly $6.5 billion to upgrade and modernize its natural gas system to enhance safety and reliability.

Scottish Greens Co-Convener Patrick Harvie visits Star?s manufacturing facility in Glasgowis?YvIn-dcfzrCyZCcHQTEEYVItzt0pO7p7a3n9gf9jRao&height=236 Glasgow, Scotland (PRWEB) - Star Renewable Energy welcomed local politician Patrick Harvie to the site last week to view its recently completed twin water source heat pump to be used at the ?250m Queens Quay regeneration project. Due to be installed in September, this is one of the UK?s most exciting and pioneering energy projects, delivered by Vital Energi.With recent plans for regeneration in the Clydebank area, and planned development for new houses and businesses, it was decided by the West Dunbartonshire Council that this would be the ideal time to install a district heating system. This low carbon, low emission solution, is a great alternative for heating buildings and excellent forward planning by the Council, as it was recently announced that gas boilers will be banned in new homes from 2025.The industrial district heat pump will also significantly contribute to the target of reducing CO2 emissions by 25% over the next seven years.Dave Pearson, Star Renewable Energy Director, said, ?This is Scotland?s first large scale water source heat pump scheme, set to provide district heating for homes, business and public buildings such as the Town Hall, West Scotland College and Clydebank Library. It was excellent to welcome Patrick Harvie to view our Glasgow manufacturing facility and receive his support for these ground-breaking renewable heat projects. The heat from these units will be over 60% lower carbon than burning gas and 100% less local NOx??.The 5.2 MW heat pumps take water from the River Clyde and use it to deliver heating and hot water as part of a district heating system ? which is three times more efficient than gas boilers. The technology uses ammonia, a natural refrigerant, IRO Polymer offering zero global warming potential and zero ozone depletion.1200px-Polymer_clay_examples.jpg Patrick Harvie, Green MSP for Glasgow, said: ?Decarbonising how we heat our homes and buildings is an absolute must-do if we?re to play our part in tackling the climate emergency ? but it?s also a huge opportunity. That?s why we?re calling for massive public investment in a jobs-rich Green New Deal, which will mean rethinking how our economy works so it?s fairer and more sustainable.?Delivering this ambition ? which has support across the political spectrum ? would mean rapidly scaling up the use of proven technology used by companies like Star Renewables so we can end our reliance on fossil fuels.??Not only is this renewable source of energy more efficient, it also offers a lower price point than fossil fuels with an ability to consume off-peak electricity and store the heat generated. The initial cost of installing the equipment has been supported by West Dunbartonshire Council and the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Program (LCITP). The heat pump will also receive the Renewable Heat Incentive once operational.Mr Pearson added, ?In Scotland we are incredibly lucky to have rivers, lochs and coastlines which can be utilised as a renewable source of energy and heat. The Clyde catchment area is a 4000 square km solar collector utilising gravity and rainfall to deliver this source energy directly into the cities where heat is needed most. We hope that this ambitious project will pave the way for many more water source heat pumps as part of a national and international reaction to climate change.??The Queens Quay regeneration development includes 1,400 new homes. These residents will be some of the first to benefit from this lower cost, low carbon heat, by the end of the yearFind out more about the first large-scale water source heat pump scheme of its kind in Scotland by visiting stand C28 in the energy efficiency and heat zone at All Energy 2019 on 15th & 16th June.About Star Renewable EnergyStar Renewable Energy is the innovative business enterprise of leading UK heating and cooling specialist, Star Refrigeration.
