Professional Water Technologies develops super-concentrated antiscalants

Professional Water Technologies’ (PWT) super-concentrated antiscalants were developed for reverse osmosis and membrane filtration markets. The antiscalants are eleven times more concentrated than standard antiscalants, reducing shipping/handling by 90% and eliminating drum disposal requirements. The products are based on PWT’s dendrimer technology. They are phosphate-free and environmentally friendly

Stephen Dunham, PWT’s founder and vice-president of After-Market Consumables, said: “By incorporating sodium benzoate into the synthesis procedure of our dendrimers, we significantly improve the shelf-life of our products while controlling biological growth in pretreatment tanks, associated equipment and the membrane system itself. Although we have long used sodium benzoate in our standard antiscalants, incorporating it into our 11X super-concentrated antiscalants has been a challenge until now. This new infusion process represents an exciting new development for users of our super-concentrated chemical pretreatment technology.”
