Moncton, NB (PRWEB) July 24, 2006
Hundreds of healthcare facilities and nursing homes in the United States and Europe have adopted copper silver ionisation as a long term and affordable water treatment solution to control and kill Legionella bacteria. This deadly waterborne bacteria, normally active in water temperature between 20C and 55C, can cause pneumonia known as Legionnaires’ disease and is a growing concern for healthcare facilities, nursing homes, hotels and cruise ships around the world.
Over the past years solving this bacterial and environmental problem without requiring total water pipe replacement or the use of chemicals has been the key to the success of ProCare Water Treatment Inc. This Canadian company is now launching the latest and unique version of its chemical free water treatment technology intended to eliminate on-going maintenance requirements.
Copper silver ionisation water treatment systems are composed of two primary components. The first is an electronic controller module that manages the ionisation process. The second component, linked to the primary controller module, is a chamber cell (or cells) that enclose copper and/or silver anodes which are used to introduce metallic ions into a potable water distribution system.
Historically, facilities using copper silver ionisation have required maintenance to keep the metallic anodes clean from scaling, also knows as calcium carbonate. To counter this environmental fact, ionisation manufacturers have required the owners to physically clean periodically the copper/silver anodes. To facilitate the cleaning process, distributors occasionally offer service contracts to take care of ongoing maintenance. In either case, hidden expenses associated to electrode maintenance can cost facilities from $5,000 to over $25,000 per year in addition to the initial standard technology start-up costs.
To solve these engineering and environmental issues, Legionella control expert and manufacturing company ProCare Water Treatment Inc., has launched its latest patented version of the AquaLyse® technology classified as “self cleaning”. The AquaLyse® SC industrial copper silver ionisation systems not only controls and kills the deadly Legionella bacteria normally found in potable hot water distribution networks, it also delivers a totally automated and environmentally friendly self cleaning solution that requires absolutely no on-going maintenance or costly cleaning service contracts.
According to Mr. Gauthier, CEO and chief microbiologist for the corporation, this Canadian water treatment technology is a first and unique in the world. The solution can easily be installed in any existing water distribution systems at an average cost of between $25,000 to $100,000 per facility depending on overall infrastructure size and requirements.
Gauthier adds that when the AquaLyse® SC models are compared to other direct or in-direct Legionella control alternatives such as; older types of ionisation systems, chlorine dioxide, expensive plumbing system replacement, corrosive hyper chlorination or scalding thermal eradication, that the AquaLyse® latest automated models are definitely the best, most affordable and reliable solution on the market today.
ProCare Water Treatment Inc. is the only industrial copper silver ionisation manufacturing company in Canada and the only one the world to offer this specific type of patented automated and self cleaning water treatment solution.
