The problem: the water being pumped to lathes and
cutting machines caused clogging due to high levels of
iron and iron bacteria, resulting in overheating and damage to expensive
tools. Chemicals used to remove these contaminants also
the tools by causing pitting, which resulted in high maintenance
and replacement of equipment.
With the installation of the CleanWater Ozone system,
the iron and iron bacteria were removed before the water reached
the cutting tools. This eliminated the clogged water lines; no pitting
occurred due to the elimination of chemicals. The system has been
operating efficiently for over seven years.
