Many Chemical Free Options Available for HVAC System Water Treatment


NATIONAL REPORT—Water treatment for systems such as cooling towers, chillers, heat exchangers and evaporative condensers has traditionally been one that has required the use of hazardous chemicals—e.g. chlorine, bromine, isothiazolinone, molybdate, phosphonate—to control calcium, bacteria, algae, scale, corrosion and biofilm. Because of the toxicity of the water treated with chemicals, it cannot be reused on property. A number of suppliers, however, have developed chemical free or similarly safe treatment systems that allow for the reuse of blow-down water while still providing a means to keep systems clean and running efficiently. Chemical free treatments vary from the introduction of atomic oxygen into the water to the application of an electronic field around piping. This article will examine some of the safer treatment systems on the market and provide real-use examples when possible. Silver Bullet Water Treatment Co., LLC offers a patented technology that creates hydroxyl radicals (a natural non-toxic biocide) when injected into water, killing all bacteria, removing scale and preventing corrosion.
