Model VPH-10000-2

In high capacity chemical feed applications, when does it make sense to use a vaporizer as opposed to the typical direct gas withdrawal system? A vaporizer should be considered if the following conditions make a direct gas withdrawal system impractical. Large withdrawal rate > (3000 PPD; 60 kg/hr.) Gas withdrawal of 500 PPD (10kg/hr) per ton container Liquid withdrawal of 10,000 PPD (200 kg/hr) per ton container Gas withdrawal requires too many online containers Global Treat, Inc. offers the electronically heated Hydro Instruments Series VPH-10000 Vaporizers that are used to convert liquid chlorine, sulfur dioxide, or ammonia into a superheated …

Acid Eddy Chemical Dilution Trough

September 19th, 2016
acid eddy chemical dilution

An “Eddy”, in fluid dynamics, is defined as situation where a current of water is moving in a direction that is different from that of the main current. Global Treat, Inc. uses this hydraulic event (eddy) for mixing and diluting acids in process water used in cooling towers via the “Acid Eddy Chemical Dilution Trough.” So, the question is:  Is it possible to reduce corrosion and extend the life of cooling tower basins with the use of a chemical dilution trough? And the answer is – Yes!  The Acid Eddy was designed to extend the life of cooling tower basins …

Why use an “acid trough” to feed acid in cooling tower water basins?

December 18th, 2014

SIMPLE ANSWER: It is effective, simple and contains no moving parts. Problems with Sulfuric Acid in Cooling Towers Sulfuric acid is often added to cooling tower water basins to maintain standard pH levels. Acid often distributes poorly in these settings because it is more dense than water. Concentrations of acid at the bottom of basins produce extremely low pH levels, causing long-term damage to the basin and associated equipment. This problem can be avoided by properly diluting acid before adding it to bodies of water. Acid Dilution Troughs Global Treat, Inc. offers a solution to protect your investment. Our non-corrosive, …

What is a safe solution to control marine biofouling in sea water systems?

February 25th, 2014

Answer: Electrochlorination, which is the process of producing a non-hazardous chlorine equivalent. This is a process of electrolysis of brine/seawater solution which forms a sodium hypochlorite solution. With this solution, biofouling is minimized and controlled by limiting macro and micro-marine organisms that attach themselves to wetted surfaces they come in contact with. If not controlled, biofouling will enhance corrosion and diminish heat transfer thus increasing piping losses via flow restriction and turbulence. Manufactured solely from existing site utilities and proven over decades as the optimum, cost effective biofouling control solution, electrochlorination of seawater avoids the logistics, hazards and high lifetime …

Is it possible to purchase a Chlorine Dioxide Generator System without being tied down to a long term contract for equipment and chemicals?

December 12th, 2013

Yes! And this is the reason for the development of DioxiGen Systems! The genesis of DioxiGen Systems resulted from a client lunch meeting with the East Rio Hondo Water Service Corporation general manager Brian Macmanus. Brian expressed his frustration with the performance and cost of the chlorine dioxide system currently in service at both the Martha Simpson Wastewater Treatment Plant and Nelson Road Wastewater Treatment Plant. Brian’s main issues were high water treatment chemical costs associated with the lease contracts and the difficulty in operating the automated system without frequent equipment problems and failures. The conversation resulted in a request …
