To help find a safer and more cost-effective solution to eliminate the growth of microorganisms and to extend the life of a cooling tower, ProChemTech International has developed ElectroBrom™ technology. The ElectroBrom™ uses a solution of common table salt and sodium bromide, which is converted into electrolytic bromine via electrolysis at the point of use, which is an extremely effective biocide.
ElectroBrom™ units are supplied as complete skidded units that require only water, power and a cooling tower connection for operation. These units can easily replace any other biocide, such as gas chlorine, hypochlorite, ozone, solid bromine and any liquid alternating non-oxidizing/oxidizing agent.
The benefits of using the ElectroBrom™ over typical biocide agents include:
• Bromine is a non-hazardous material
• Safe to transport and handle
• Environmentally friendly
• Cheaper to use and maintain
US EPA primary registered precursors PCT 3023 and 3024 can be used with the ElectroBrom™ units as well as any other US EPA registered source of sodium bromide. ElectroBrom™ units are manufactured in US EPA registered facilities.
The ElectroBrom™ is the most cost effective biocide for cooling tower applications on the market due to lower operating costs. This is achieved by the lower annual operating cost of the ElectroBrom™ unit.
On average, biocide chemicals typically cost around $13,000 a year to operate effectively for a 15,000 gallon cooling tower. In comparison, an ElectroBrom™ would cost only $5,000 per year on the same system, which amounts to an average savings of $8,000 per year.
These savings can make a big impact on a company and allow those additional funds to be allocated elsewhere. Additionally, the ElectroBrom™ will eliminate the chance of accidental injury or environmental accidents that could otherwise be caused by traditional biocides due to their hazardous nature.
By making the switch to the ElectroBrom™ customers can go a long way towards making their company operate at peak efficiency.
