EcoWater Acquires VRTX Technology, Operations
EcoWater expands green product portfolio with chemical-free water treatment for cooling towers
EcoWater Systems expanded its commercial business product line through the acquisition of the Controlled Hydrodynamic Cavitation (CHC) technology and operations from VRTX Technologies of Schertz, Texas.
CHC is an environmentally friendly water treatment technology used in HVAC, process cooling and refrigeration systems to effectively control scale, biological growth and corrosion without the use of chemicals. Adding this technology to a cooling tower saves energy, reduces water consumption and maintenance costs, and minimizes or eliminates sewer discharge volume.
Production of CHC technology systems will continue to take place in Schertz, and plans are underway to transition the systems to the EcoWater brand.
