New automated Water Treatment System a win for Water Conservation


Sydney, Australia

With the potential to conserve fresh water and improve corrosion levels, a shift toward closed water treatment systems has long been considered the future of the industry. The challenge to create a fully automated closed system has been embraced by pioneering company NCH, and the resulting aquaDART® System launched recently in Australia.

Monitoring and controlling water treatment systems have never become easier than now with the introduction of the latest real-time automation system. Without proper control, cooling tower systems will experience a variety of problems including: scale, corrosion, microbiological growth, and inefficient water usage.

Reducing the need for engineer attention,aquaDART® makes use of florescent traced technology to maintain chemical residual control and enables real-time sensors to measure key parameters, determining scale, corrosion and microbiological control. From here, custom controls regulate blowdown and chemical feed, immediately correcting and communicating upset conditions.

As a fully automated system, the web-based monitoring and control software allows for remote supervision of theaquaDART® System, while records are also automatically generated and accessible at any time through the web-platform.

Case studies at Chemical plants in South East Asia have confirmed that up to 141ML of water can be conserved through the implementation of aquaDART®, resulting in massive environmental and financial savings. With automation further reducing human error and increasing the efficiency of water treatment, the aquaDART® system is set to become an industry standard in the near future.

TheaquaDART® automation can improve labor utilization, freeing up personnel to work on other important tasks, with the peace of mind the cooling tower system is under control. The aquaDART® system provides customers with quantifiable results to help protect cooling systems and ultimately reduce the total cost of operation.
