Ashland Offers Innovative Solid Chemical Feed System for Water Treatment

DUBLIN, Ohio - Ashland has added solid chemical treatment to its ULTRA-SERV® inventory management programs for water treatment. ULTRA-SERV solid chemical programs, offered by Drew Industrial, a business group of Ashland Water Technologies, a division of Ashland Inc. (NYSE:ASH), incorporate a solid chemical feeder and associated products to provide an option benefiting customers who prefer not to handle liquid chemicals in pails or drums.

The feeder is available in electric and non-electric models that convert 11-pound jars of solid-paste formulated products into liquid solutions at the point of system application. Small, light-weight containers of solid product provide consistent and controllable product concentrations in the system being treated and eliminate storage and handling of conventional 55-gallon drums and 5-gallon pails.

"ULTRA-SERV solid programs now allow facilities to treat cooling tower systems without using liquid chemistry," said Hal Moffat, vice president of global marketing, Ashland Water Technologies. "Customers can combine Drew Industrial's ULTRA-SERV solid chemical feed system with our patented SONOXIDE® ultrasonic water treatment system for a program that entirely eliminates liquid chemical use, including microbiocides. This is another example of how Ashland supports both performance and environmental responsibility." SONOXIDE water treatment technology uses low-power, high-frequency ultrasound to provide microbial control in recirculating cooling water systems.
