Hydroflow brings sweet success to food producer of corn starch derived products.
Hydroflow water conditioners offer a chemical-free approach to treating both existing and new limescale and to addressing biofilm.
Following a 180-test period with continuous monitoring, Hydroflow was shown to reduce the bacteria load from 12,000 CFU to 500 CFU. Following installation of the Hydroflow i160 it has been made possible to reduce biocides, anticorrosion and antiscalant agents.
Based in Italy, the customer is a world leader in the production of products derived from corn starch. The process uses evaporative cooling towers with primary and secondary circuits to cool equipment such as compressors and turbines. The circuits are treated with chemical dosing. In order to meet environmental regulations, the customer wanted to reduce the chemical consumption and also maintenance time.
Like all industries, the food industry requires careful management of water systems, requiring they remain clear of limescale and biofilm to remain at optimum efficiency. With food production, there is an additional constraint on the amount of chemical treatment that can be added to the water.
Hydroflow electronic water conditioners offer a chemical-free approach to treating both existing and new limescale, and to addressing biofilm. Unlike water softeners there are no ongoing replenishment costs, and boilers can operate on unsoftened water without the problems of hard scale.
Installation is simple. No system modification required. Hydroflow operates 24 hours maintenance-free. Maximum performance no matter the throughput.
