IVG-C Limeteq chemical free cooling water treatment

This innovative project involves the testing of the IVG-C cooling water treatment (a patented Vortex Process Technology ® already implemented in the Netherlands) on the evaporative condenser of Frima (specialized in frozen prepared meals and snack products). The implementation of this innovative technology has a great impact on the environment, the energy required as well as the maintenance of the plant.

Environment:

• Reducing lime / corrosion chemicals up to 100%

• Reduction of biocidal chemicals up to 95%

• Reduce wateruse condenser

Energy:

• Clean and maintain the condenser tubes by using IVG-C technology

• Optimize water distribution of the condenser

• Improvement of the cooling capacity of the cooling water for lower temperature condensate

Maintenance:

• Extended service life of the condenser

• Reducing and eliminating maintenance / pickling of the condenser

• Decrease consumption of softened water

In association with:

• Frima NV

• Pathema VOF

• KHBO

• VITO

Duration: 1 January 2013 – 31 December 31 2013
