BP Manufacturing Solutions reduces chem­i­cal and fil­tra­tion costs, GMPT Flint, Michigan USA

Highlights: Several pos­i­tive out­comes result­ed from the use of Zeta Rods. Because fun­gal growth in the high-pres­sure tanks was elim­i­nat­ed, pro­duc­tion down­time was min­i­mized. The fun­gal reduc­tion reduced main­te­nance costs and improved oper­a­tional effi­cien­cies. Chemical usage also dropped, most notably in anti-foam due to the change in sur­face ten­sion caused by Zeta RodsTM. This anit-foam reduc­tion alone pro­vid­ed an annu­al cost sav­ings of $120,000.

AIChE Update: New Techniques Tame Biofouling
Chemical Engineering Progress | AIChE

Biofouling plagues many plants in the chem­i­cal process indus­tries. Ongoing research is focus­ing on ways to con­trol a range of bioor­gan­isms, rang­ing from fun­gi to zebra mus­sels, that can cause these prob­lems. Chlorine Pulsing, Electronic Rods [Zeta Rods], fil­ters, anti-micro­bial coat­ings and corn-based poly­mers are dis­cussed.  Click here to link to the AIChE CEP Magazine arti­cle.
