ST. MICHAEL, Minn. — U.S. Water has launched PhosZero™ with E-FeX™ Technology, a new sustainable chemistry for cooling tower water treatment. The company said the new technology provides a blend of ingredients that replaces the most common uses of phosphorus in cooling water applications.

The PhosZero family of cooling water treatment products is designed to provide both scale and corrosion control, similar to traditional phosphorus containing chemistries, but without the discharge or aquatic toxicity concerns of older technologies.

Benefits include:

• Maximum protection against corrosion and scale, ensuring high heat transfer and maximum equipment efficiency.

• Environmental sustainability through PhosZero’s favorable aquatic toxicity profile, reducing a plant’s environmental footprint.

• Elimination of phosphorus discharge to the environment, enhancing regulatory compliance as well as eliminating the costs associated with phosphorus removal from the waste stream.

• Plant safety improvement since PhosZero reduces the need for acid use and storage on-site, helping to reduce HazMat reporting, insurance costs, and chemical handling mistakes.

Allan Bly, founder and CEO of U.S. Water, said, “I am very proud of our scientists for developing this great breakthrough in sustainable treatment for cooling water. It will save our customers time and money, while improving the environment.”
