WaterProfessionals® designs and installs custom demineralizers in record time while providing mobile treatment, avoiding hefty late fees for delayed boiler start-up.

We are able to dispatch trailers capable of flowing 500 gpm each in a matter of six hours or less.

WaterProfessionals® provides fast, efficient and economical service, supplying superior water purification systems to industrial clients. The company proved their stellar reputation during this emergency project for a Massachusetts contractor.

A contractor’s worst nightmare is hiring vendors that don’t follow through. That was the situation for the mechanical contractor hired to build a new utilities building by the Amherst Campus at the University of Massachusetts. Timely boiler start-up depended on construction of a demineralized water treatment system, which fell apart three months after awarding the bid. A frantic call to WaterProfessionals® put the project back on track.

When WaterProfessionals® stepped in after the vendor default, they faced challenging design specifications. The new Amherst Campus boiler required custom-engineered, duplexed dual bed demineralizers. Capability of combining alternate anion and cation beds was accomplished along with a programmable logic controller (PLC), day storage tanks, ASME code pressure vessels, and stainless steel face-piping. WaterProfessionals® furnished a custom demineralized water treatment system design in 2 weeks, and completed installation within 13 weeks.

However, interrupting the time-sensitive project created an urgent need for purified makeup water for the new boilers. “No problem for us,” stated a WaterProfessionals® representative. “We are able to dispatch trailers capable of flowing 500 gpm each in a matter of six hours or less.”

Prior to bringing the newly designed water treatment system online, WaterProfessionals® brought in mobile deionization trailers to deionize boiler feedwater, allowing start-up to proceed on schedule. As a result, the university’s contractor was spared hefty late fees for construction delays.
