CHEMAGINEERING CORPORATION initially entered the Printing Industry in 1989 through the use of CH-7:54 Industrial Cleaner as a non-hazardous chemical descaler in the cleaning of press vibrator rollers and chill rolls. Prior to that time, our client had been utilizing uninhibited hydrochloric acid as the active cleaning agent for that purpose. Invariably during such a cleaning operation, cleaner supply and return hoses leak or rupture, resulting in the uncontrolled discharge of corrosive and hazardous acid sprays throughout the pressroom area.
Recognizing that the predominant method to "treat" press chilled water systems was through the use of commercial automotive antifreezes, we developed a comprehensive Press Preventive Maintenance Program that includes: System Sampling and Laboratory Analysis; System Restoration employing a problem-specific flush chemistry and procedure; Corrosion and Deposit Inhibitor Application; Periodic System Sampling and Monitoring; and an Annual System Maintenance Flush.
Press Chilled Water Management Products presently being applied to printing industry Chilled Water Systems include:
ChillCARE® Closed System Treatment — A highly effective buffered treatment that provides corrosion protection on mild steel, cast iron, galvanized steel, copper, brass, aluminum and solder. In addition, deposit control additives within the product maintain clean heat transfer surfaces by preventing the deposition of mineral scales and foulants.
ChillCARE-EF Closed System Treatment — An all-organic, environmentally friendly modification of the original ChillCARE treatment formulation.
CH-7:54 Industrial Cleaner — A non-hazardous, near-neutral cooling water system descaling and iron oxide removal agent. CH-7:54 is typically used to clean isolated, out-of-service severely scaled and fouled systems at concentrations up to 20% (v/v basis). In-service cleaning programs have also been developed.
ChemCLEAN® New System Cleaner — A detergent and cleaner for removing fabricating oils, greases, fluxes, and debris from new presses or chillers prior to system start-up.
SynerGEE® Closed System Cleaner — A chilled water penetrant and dispersant intended to be used in systems moderately or severely fouled with organic debris.
FoamBUSTER Cooling/Process Water Antifoam — In the typical application of chemical cleaning products, mild-to-moderate recirculating water foaming may occur. When sufficient foam occurs that impedes the cleaning process and/or water recirculation, FoamBUSTER can be easily applied to control that condition.
BioBrom C-103L Cooling Water Bactericide — An EPA registered bactericide effective at controlling press chilled water system microorganism populations.
ChillCOOL® 845 Industrial Coolant — An inhibited Ethylene Glycol-based coolant for application in systems in which freeze/burst protection is required. Depending on the degree of freeze point depression, ChillCOOL 845 may be applied at concentrations up to 50% v/v.
ChillCOOL 855 Industrial Coolant — A more environmentally friendly inhibited Propylene Glycol-based coolant for application in systems in which freeze/burst protection is required. Depending on the degree of freeze point depression, ChillCOOL 855 may be applied at concentrations up to 50% v/v.
