Cooling Water Treatment


Cooling towers are a common way to provide economic and efficient large scale process and HVAC cooling operations. Effective water treatment around cooling towers and cooling water operations is critical for high process reliability and minimal equipment outages. Solugen has a full portfolio of innovative corrosion, scale control, and microbiological control products for these cooling water applications.

Customer Challenges and Pain Points

Many of the challenges for cooling tower and water operators center around microbial control and asset reliability of equipment and piping in these systems. The warm environment and water droplets create an ideal environment for bacterial and microbial growth where species can be aerosolized and spread in the surrounding areas. Also, many operators struggle to effectively control corrosion and scale in their systems as they cycle their cooling towers in stressed conditions.

Solugen Solution

Solugen’s products are specially formulated to reduce the buildup of calcium, magnesium, and iron- induced scale and corrosion in alkaline cooling water environments. These chemistries can be used as standalone products or as complimentary ingredients to existing phosphonate offerings.

Solugen Products

BioChelate™ is Solugen’s bio-based, nontoxic chelant that targets and complexes common problematic metals that interfere with traditional phosphonate chemistries. BioChelate™ is available as a standalone concentrate and can be formulated with conventional scale and corrosion chemistries to enhance their performance in stressed, alkaline cooling water applications.

BioPeroxide® is Solugen’s bio-based hydrogen peroxide product line that provides general oxidation clarification solutions to the water treatment space.

ScaleSol™ is Solugen’s flagship scale control product line that is available as concentrates or ready to use formulations that target calcium, magnesium, and iron-induced scale buildup and formation in cooling towers and cooling water service.

CorrSol™ is designed to prevent under deposit corrosion, fouling, and maintain clean operating surfaces to reduce corrosion in cooling towers.
