Calcium Hypochlorite Feeder Selected As Primary Solution For Municipal Water Treatment Plants
Long Beach Township is the largest town on Long Beach Island, New Jersey. With 18 miles of beaches, the town is a major tourist destination. Population exploded during the summer months from approximately 3,000 to over 100,000. This can be a challenge for the town's drinking water facilities, with demand increasing exponentially during the tourist season.
Byers Gains Stable Chlorination And Reduced Maintenance With Constant Chlor® MC5 System
Byers is an unincorporated rural community in Arapahoe County, Colorado, approximately 50 miles east of Denver. Byers Water & Sanitation District provides drinking water to this area. The district operates five wells – each approximately 700 feet deep. Two wells are typically used in the winter and four in the summer. Annual water use averages 140,000 gallons per day for the district’s 500 active service connections.

The Constant Chlor® system use EPA registered Constant Chlor® Briquettes that work in conjunction with the feeder to produce a fresh concentrated liquid chlorine solution for clean, clear, sanitized water.
Breaking The Causative Chain Of Legionellosis
Legionnaires’ disease first garnered public attention in 1976. After attending an American Legion convention at a Philadelphia hotel, 221 people became ill, with 34 dying of a mysterious illness. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched a major investigation, and in 1977 identified the responsible bacterium, naming it Legionella.
Biofouling Control In Cooling Towers With A Halogen Stabilizer
Biofouling in cooling towers is undesirable because it can reduce heat transfer efficiency, restrict water flow, and accelerate corrosion rates. Of even greater concern is the fact that pathogen growth in cooling towers can lead to disease transmission. Given the favorable growth environment of a cooling tower, these microorganisms can reproduce, proliferate and form complex biofilm communities. Legionella bacteria, which cause Legionnaires’ disease, are one of the greatest concerns from a public health standpoint because infections are often lethal and cooling towers are the most frequently reported non-potable water source of Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks (Llewellyn 2017).
Bardac® LF 18 — A Novel Cooling Water Algaecide
The active ingredient in Bardac® LF 18 is dioctyl dimethyl ammonium chloride. This product comes in two concentrations: -10WT (10% w/w) and -50WT (50% w/w). Several chemical properties of this product yield key benefits that set it apart from other industrial cooling water products. It is a quaternary ammonium compound (quat). Quats are typically low cost and highly effective biocides for a broad spectrum of organisms.
