World’s largest district cooling center in Chicago, Illinois improves operations and eliminates hazardous delivered chemicals with new disinfection system using MIOX electrochemical generation.
A major player in Chicago’s water treatment industry piloted MIOX water treatment chemicals for cooling tower water treatment back in 2006. Since proving MIOX’s Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) chemistry as a superior alternative to delivered biocides including bromine and isothiazoline, the facility has continued to utilize MIOX chlorine generator systems with a recent equipment upgrade.
MIOX on-site chemical generators create water disinfectants on site using just salt, water and electricity.
The MIOX equipment upgrade and application success has been documented in a case study recently published by MIOX. Download the case study to learn how Thermal Chicago replaced bromine with on-site chemical generation, effectively eliminating 50 barrels of dangerous chemicals in downtown Chicago each week, improving operations, and achieving a return on capital investment in less than 16 months.
This case study highlights a truly “green” and sustainable technology for water treatment.
