About the Customer
This Italian dairy produces milk and milk products, packs it and distributes it to the market. The main market segments are: UHT milk, pasteurized milk, UHT cream, yogurt and fruit beverages.
The cooling system is a type of evaporator condenser cooling tower in which the cooling water chills ammonia that runs through tubes. The water then returns to the water tank and circulates, thus causing a temperature drop by evaporation.
The factory had been using chemical additives to avoid scale problems on the tubes, without any great success. Although using chemical treatment, the tubes were totally clogged with scale and heat transfer was badly affected.
UET water treatment is a non-chemical solution. The water from the water tank circulates through the UET equipment and returns back to the water tank.
UET’s equipment is comprised by a set of reactors driven by DC current, which controls the partial electrolysis chemical reactions and encourages the scale potential to be materialized in the reactors instead of on the tubes.
UET removes historical scale from the cooling equipment and re-forms it in its reactors. Since this process is done without chemicals, the equipment is named UET-ChemFree CT™
About the UET water treatment results
Since installation of UET’s equipment, the cooling water system no longer suffers from scale deposits or from corrosion acceleration. Additionally, bio-life has been eliminated through the anodic reactions in UET’s reactors. Historical scale was gradually removed and the factory’s equipment started to be restored slowly.
… in the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award in 2009, your product clearly demonstrates both technical excellence and a commitment to protecting human health and the environment. We applaud your contributions to green chemistry.
In every building project we have undertaken with UET we have received excellent advice and seen significant improvements in the water systems within a short time – sometimes within the first month. We have no doubts that UET’s technology yields excellent results very quickly.
The routine service provided by UET includes site visits, water analysis reports, on-going service to the units, replacing consumable items and fixing any problems. The UET personnel are always professional and pleasant. We highly appreciate and strongly recommend using UET’s technology and equipment.
The UET system performs work well, allowing financial savings and contributing to the environment. We plan to test and gradually introduce your systems in our other divisions. We thank UET for your technical support, expertise and dedication to improving our water systems.
In the 35 years that I have worked in water treatment and irrigation, I have never come across such an efficient system. I recommend the excellent service, the rapid response and the professionalism of UET.
UET was chosen to supply systems to treat and recycle waste water utilising their unique technology and know-how. Laboratory results show that the water recycling results exceed the standard requirements, and we appreciate the highly professional way that UET has initiated, designed and installed its integrated solution.
