The business case for chem feed equipment bundles!

The business case for chem feed equipment bundles!

Are you a water treater? then let me ask you a question; do you formulate your chemicals for a specific combination of water quality and application? Please stop for a minute and think about it.

From the technical standpoint it makes total sense, the combination of the quality of water, the equipment that water is used in, and the process, create a unique combination that requires the engineering of a unique solution. Although this could be the best technical approach for each application, it can become cumbersome, expensive and time-consuming.

For a business to justify the commercialization of custom mixes, without the volume commitment, should charge very high prices. Custom mixes create an overload of paperwork, transaction processing time, treatment documentation, inventory planning nightmare, invoicing mistakes and big account receivable issues. For the field service personnel, it requires more training and documentation, increases the risk for mistakes, amplifies the cost of personnel rotation and, at the end of the day, increases the cost of the operation.

Most water treaters have fix formulations that will work with the most of the applications. This way there is a limited offer, which reduces the cost of the operation, and reduces the risk for mistakes in the field.

If this is well understood for the chemicals, how come the water treaters use chem feed products from different vendors, for their applications? Understanding that personal preference for a specific controller, water meter, pump and, valve drives the selection of different components of an application, we can assume that the cost for the organization is not optimized.

Although a reliable chem feed system is of paramount importance for the performance of the water treatment, why is the overall cost of procuring, installing and supporting the different products is not accounted for? Why is it that water treaters weight differently soft and hard savings when it comes to chem feed equipment?

We suggest that sourcing all your equipment needs from one source will drive reliability and cost savings in the field. Please leave personal preferences apart (they are very subjective) and look at it from the functional/business standpoint:

1. There is very little technical differentiation between suppliers. At the end of the day, the most of the suppliers provide the same technology.

2. Quality, support, and price make the difference.

3. Having to call three different vendors for the same application dilutes leverage.

4. Bundling eliminates the subjectivity and can provide the most value per $.

5. One call, one order, one support contact.

6. Personalized bundles, ordering process and support

Just think about it, all you need is a vendor that can provide high quality, very reliable and competitive priced products. The color or shape is secondary but the business impact is deep and long-termed.

What is Ozone ?
What is Ozone ?

April 28, 2021 0 Comments

Most people have heard of ozone thanks to media coverage about pollution and the ozone layer. But for many, that is where their knowledge ends. The first thing you should tell a homeowner is that ozone is nothing more than O3—three oxygen atoms bound together. 

That extra oxygen atom wants to hook up with other material, like unwanted microorganisms in water filtration systems. For the purpose of disinfecting water, ozone comes in contact with contaminants and pathogens that can damage equipment and get in the water supply. The extra oxygen atom oxidizes the contaminant and the O3 becomes O2—just plain old oxygen.

Does Ozone kill viruses ?
Does Ozone kill viruses ?

It was shown that after 30 seconds of in vitro direct exposure to ozone, 99 percent of the viruses are inactivated. Although this evidence is of considerable importance, outside of the laboratory models, there are various parameters that influence the time required to obtain the same result. First of all, it was seen that the inactivation of 99% of viruses by ozonation requires its spread at concentrations higher than those necessary for the bacteria. A longer exposure time, about 30 minutes, is necessary for the treatment of the surfaces of the environment (surface viruses), while for any viral particles suspended in the air (airborne viruses) 8-10 minutes are enough to remove 99.9% of them. Viruses in water are more susceptible to ozone inactivation and short contact time, about 1 min or little more, are sufficient to inactivate 99% of them.

Why do I need a metering pump?
Why do I need a metering pump?

A positive displacement pump moves a fluid by repeatedly enclosing a fixed volume, with the aid of seals or valves, and moving it mechanically through the system. The pumping action is cyclic and can be driven by pistons, screws, gears, lobes, diaphragms or vanes. There are two main types: reciprocating and rotary.Positive displacement pumps are preferred for applications involving highly viscous fluids such as thick oils and slurries, especially at high pressures, for complex feeds such as emulsions, foodstuffs or biological fluids, and also when accurate dosing is required.
