Solid Water Treatment History


How Systems Were Traditionally Treated

In the middle of the 20th century, the process for treating cooling water and boiler systems was to utilize various powdered chemical materials mixed with water at the facility where the chemicals were to be applied. To deal with hazardous splash and spillage side effects, some firms in the 1960s and 1970s began mixing powdered chemicals with water in a manufacturing facility under more controlled circumstances. This process caught on, and liquid products became the standard method for treating the water in cooling and heating systems.

Generally, these liquid water treatment chemicals are delivered by tanker truck or common carrier trucks and proportionally dosed to the respective systems by utilizing a variety of pumps.

Blended Solid Concentrate Products to the Rescue

Almost 15 years ago, in answer to these challenges and limitations, APTech Group developed the technology to manufacture and distribute blended solid concentrate water treatment products for cooling water, boilers, and closed loop systems.

This process enables combining several components into one blended solid concentrate product. The resulting mixture of proven combinations takes the form of hard solid substance. These products are manufactured in a variety of configurations including discs, sticks, tablets and the most popular form – in gallon size recyclable plastic bottles. These products can be applied straight from the container using patented dispensing systems. No mixing is required.

Today, there are over 10,000 installations of APTech Group blended solid concentrate water treatment products in facilities in the U.S. and around the world.
