Questions And Answers
All water cooled chillers over 500 tons – Data Centers, Healthcare Office Buildings, Educational Facilities, Campus’ with central chiller/boiler plants, Manufacturing, Pharmaceuticals, Utilities, Hospitality, Casinos etc.
EC Tech uses no media to filter, such as sand. We remove down to one micron. Most customers avoid side-stream filters because of maintenance and water usage. EC Tech is a high tech management tool.
All cooling towers are air scrubbers that intake several tons of suspended solids per year. 25 micron and up are too heavy to stay in solution and settle in the tower basins and need to be physically removed annually. The 1-10 micron particles, however, stay in solution and accumulate over time. These particles foul the entire condenser loop, which affects the chiller’s efficiency. Other filters do not touch the 1-5 micron ranges, which is the vast majority of particle counts. Our system utilizes electrodes to precipitate, not media, to filter. Our system requires no backwash to clean itself.
Our system calculates make-up, bleed and evaporation rates. We normalize for load and cooling degree days with the base year (12 months prior to installation). We also monitor chiller approach temperatures to ensure equipment efficiencies and utility savings.
This will vary with equipment size (tonnage) and utility rates – the larger the system, the larger the mark-up. Figure 25-40% starting with 500-tons and up.
Yes. You can offer remote supervision plus monthly visits.
There is one circulating pump with VFD, a processor, conductivity meter, flow meters, PSI sensors and electrodes on our system. Our system is easy to troubleshoot. All systems have a two-year warranty on all parts.
No. EC Tech will fully train sales and service staff.
Yes. We provide systems other than condenser open loops to cooling towers that address these applications.
15 years – see reference list
Yes. You will receive a Licensed Resellers Agreement with full training.
We approached management of total suspended solids (TSS) and total dissolved solids (TDS) from a controls standpoint. This product has proven itself year-after-year in many Fortune 500 companies. Our system is modular and totally automated – a perfect fit for any service company wishing to offer their customer base additional utility savings and services with good margins.
Yes. It takes several months, but our technology will clean the entire condenser line.
All chemical companies realize that TSS are the enemy of an efficient treatment system. With traditional side-stream filtration come high maintenance and high backwash water use, plus they do not remove the majority of 1-10 micron particles. Their chemicals work much better when TSS are under control, and EC Tech provides that technology. We do enhance the chemical company’s ability to control both corrosion and biological growth.
$40-$50 per ton with mark-up of 25-40%. ROI between 18-30 months for typical 500 – 10,000 ton applications.
Yes. EC Tech utilizes a third party to conduct light scattering particle analysis.
