Veolia Brings First-in-Class Automated Cooling Water Treatment HYDREX™ AquaVista to Asia

Veolia Water Technologies (Veolia) exhibits today at the seventh edition of the Singapore International Water Week (SIWW), and showcases its new cooling system solution, the Hydrex™ AquaVista, and other tried-and-tested technologies

Exhibiting today at the seventh Singapore International Water Week (SIWW), Veolia Water Technologies has unveiled its new cooling system solution, the HYDREX™ AquaVista along with its other tried-and-tested technologies; including the Actiflo®, AnoxKaldnes Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR), and the Biobed® Advanced Technology.

The HYDREX™ AquaVista (Aquavista™ 5C), is being shown to manufacturers operating in Asia at the event. An automated control and monitoring system adaptable for most water treatment systems including both open and closed cooling circuits, membranes and boilers, the Aquavista™ 5C is a state-of-the-art technology capable of collecting operational data, calculating corrective actions, executing corrections, communicating with the system’s operator, and controlling the optimum design parameters.

“With cooling systems, operators have to continuously adapt the chemical dosing in the water to mitigate fluctuating make-up and cooling water parameters. The Aquavista™ 5C is Veolia’s automated technology to diagnose cooling systems conditions for appropriate chemical response solution, and it provides users with key features and functions of top-of-the-line cooling monitoring and controlling systems. This solution can prevent adverse effects like corrosion, deposits, fouling, and microbiological growth in cooling towers,” said Veolia.

“The new technology boasts the ‘5Cs’ – collect, calculate, correct, communicate, and control – and it offers manufacturers key benefits such as minimising risk concerning scale and corrosion, maximising water usage, optimising blow-down water and related discharges, facilitating reports and operating conditions, and achieving highest water treatment systems performance.”

Matthieu Gillet, Hydrex Water Treatment Additives, Asia Industrial, Veolia Water Technologies, summarised: “Fluctuations in cooling circuit conditions can negatively impact the various components in the cooling system. It’s crucial that manufacturers take preventive measures by improving and optimising these conditions. A step up from generic cooling tower technologies, the Aquavista™ 5C is Veolia’s breakthrough solution for smart chemical dosing and monitoring technology for cooling systems. In line with Veolia’s motto of developing access to, preserving, and replenishing resources, we are confident that the Aquavista™ 5C will help manufacturers to mitigate the impact of their business activities on the environment.”

Veolia is hosting a roundtable discussion today with the theme ‘Resources 2050’, with ways to mitigate the current water shortages in the region high on the agenda.
