Why we recommend using solid chemicals for your water treatment
Considering whether to use solid chemicals for your water?
AquaChem are proud to say over 80% of our customers use solid chemicals as their choice of water treatment, with good reason.
Not only is moving from liquid water treatment chemicals to solid chemicals relatively simple, it also offers a tonne of benefits to both the end-user and water treatment specialist and will help lower your overall carbon footprint.
A number of these reasons are outlined below:
Compact design; 5kg cannisters
Designed with functionality in mind, solid chemicals come in easy to handle cannisters with easy twist on/off, sealed twist caps unlike the 250L plastic drums liquid chemicals come in.
Less storage space required
Liquid chemicals are bulky and must be stored in containment areas according to their hazardous classification, wheres the smaller cannisters can be organised on shelving units in one room. Upto 60 solid chemical cannisers can fit into the size of 1 liquid chemical drum and do the work of 22.5 drums.
Reduces transport costs
Solid chemicals are easier to transport, they are much smaller and do not require a large Heavy Goods Vehicle to transport them, hence they have a lower carbon footprint.
It can not spill
Liquid chemicals have the potential to spill anywhere (in transit, or at your facility), many liquid chemicals can be hazardous, damaging to the environment, and a potential for expensive litigation.
Unlike solid chemicals which can not be spilled – no clean ups or PPE required!
No triple rinsing of empty drums before disposal
Solid chemicals have a “self-rinse” system, meaning they do not need to be rinsed after use, unlike liquid chemical drums which required 3 rinses before recycling / reuse. Going solid means saving water, time, and money.
