PhosZero

An Innovative and Balanced Scale and Corrosion Control Solution

The PhosZero™ family of cooling water treatment products are designed to provide scale and corrosion control results similar to “traditional” phosphorus containing chemistries, but without the discharge or aquatic toxicity concerns of older technologies. 

U.S. Water’s latest generation of PhosZero™  contains E-FeX™ Technology, a synergistic blend of ingredients that replaces the most common uses of phosphorus in cooling water applications. Corrosion control is promoted by the formation of an adherent iron oxide passivation layer on carbon steel surfaces so thin that it does not reduce heat transfer efficiency.

Program Advantages

Maximum Protection
PhosZero™ provides steel corrosion protection equivalent to or better than traditional stabilized phosphate treatment, ensuring high heat transfer and maximum equipment efficiency. Minimizing system corrosion reduces customer maintenance costs and extends equipment life.

Environmental Sustainability
PhosZero’s™ favorable aquatic toxicity profile will reduce your plants environmental footprint, and improve the plant’s results during Whole Effluent Toxicity (WET) testing.

Regulatory Compliance
PhosZero™ products do not contain any phosphorus, zinc, molybdate, chromate or borate. This alternative chemistry helps with customer discharge permits, and can eliminate costs associated with phosphorus removal from the waste stream.

Plant Safety Improvement
PhosZero™ reduces the need for acid use and storage on-site, which can help with hazardous material reporting, insurance costs, and handling mistakes.

The PhosZero Program

Without an effective scale and corrosion control program in place, your plant’s cooling system could be compromised, resulting in higher operating costs as well as product loss. Traditional corrosion and scale inhibitors contain phosphorus, and phosphorus discharge in wastewater can lead to algae blooms, a reduction in dissolved oxygen, and possible large scale fish kill. U.S. Water’s PhosZero™ cooling water treatment is an innovative and balanced scale and corrosion control solution.

U.S. Water’s latest generation of PhosZero™ contains E-FeX™ technology. E-FeX™ stands for Environmentally Friendly Iron (Fe) Control, a proprietary chemistry developed by U.S. Water. E-FeX™ Technology is a synergistic blend of ingredients that replaces the most common uses of phosphorus in cooling water applications.
