| Case Study 1
A facility was experiencing heavy scale deposits in their 500 ton cooling tower, significantly increasing the energy costs to operate the unit. In fact, it was costing the company over USD $43,000 per year in addition to the normal costs of operating a clean, efficient unit. Due to the heavy scale, ZTS Group was recommended to clean the tower. Rydlyme was circulated for 12 hours, water flushed, and returned to service. The USD $17,000 investment of ZTS services realized a payback period of 3.5 months, and significantly improved the cooling efficiency of the system.
| Case Study 2
A Company was experiencing very high discharge air temperature on a 350 hp Worthington air compressor. Due to inefficiency of the intercooler and after cooler, the discharge air temperatures was measured at 390 degrees prior to cleaning. ZTS Group circulated Rydlyme throughout the coolers and water jackets of the unit for 4 hours then flushed and put back in operation. After the cleaning, the discharge air temperature measured a 217 degree drop, bringing the unit well within operating limits! Rydlyme is now a regular part of their preventive maintenance program.
| Case Study 3
Recently, a large steel treating company used ZTS Group to demonstrate the energy savings of Rydlyme and cleaned one of their eight 12’ diameter vacuum furnaces using Rydlyme. After circulating Rydlyme for only 6 hours, the furnace was returned to service and showed a significant increase in energy efficiency, as well as the elimination of hot spots on the furnace walls. The company was so pleased with the results, they decided to clean their remaining seven furnaces using Rydlyme, and institute a preventive maintenance program to clean their furnaces every 6 months.
