AGT Biobalance II Water Treatment Chemical Kit

AGT Biobalance II
Water Treatment
Chemical Kit
Absolute Graphic Technologies USA has teamed with
Nalco Company to provide a water treatment chemical
kit designed to:
• Maintain cooling performance
• Protect the equipment in the system
water change-outs and adding filtration when needed. Since
bacteria and biofilm are dynamic living organisms that can
act as an insulator, managing microbiological activity is
crucial to maintaining cooling system heat transfer and
minimizing corrosion. This is done by periodic treatment
with a Nalco biocide.
The Mechanical design of the system, the Operational
parameters and a Chemical program (MOC) have been
integrated into the design of the kit to ensure that the
cooling system operates efficiently with optimal heat transfer,
and to protect the critical components of the system from
unexpected downtime and insure a long service life.
Two alternatives are often considered for cooling water
media – glycol and water. In some scenarios, people may
consider using glycol-based cooling media. Glycol should
only be used when freeze protection is required. Glycol does
not transfer heat as well as water and it will eventually break
down, becoming a food source for microbiological activity in
the system and potentially contribute to corrosion.
Although water is a great medium for transferring heat from
the process, there are side effects of using water that must
be managed to maintain optimal performance of the system
and preserve equipment integrity.
Some commonly encountered challenges include:
• Scale
• Corrosion
• Fouling
• Microbiological activity
The AGT Biobalance II Chemical Kit (part #: 702981)
is designed to minimize the effects of corrosion, scale, fouling,
and microbial contamination in these systems and allow the
system to continue providing reliable service with optimal
efficiency for the life of the equipment. This chemical
treatment program includes the following:
• Corrosion/scale inhibitor
• Biocide
• Use/dosage instructions
Corrosion and scale (mineral deposits) are managed in the
system by using the specially formulated AGT105 chemical
along with pure makeup water (deionized, distilled, reverse
osmosis). Fouling (dirt or other contaminants) in the system
can be managed by minimizing leaks, performing periodic
• Material Data Safety Sheets
• Packaging that meets global shipping requirements
