You can see your equipment; it stands in front of you right over there. What you can’t see is the fluid that circulates within the equipment.
Our in-house water treatment is designed to keep your process operational, keeping your industry running efficiently and reliably. We know full well that understanding the chemical makeup of what might look like water is complicated.
We simplify this for you, we take a sample and our water treatment specialist and will issue a report with a clear plan for implementation in order to maintain your equipment or carry out a repair. All of which we do in-house be it glycol, inhibitor, biocide or a full flush
Water quality affects the longevity, efficiency and reliability of your process equipment.
It’s essential that your system fluid is checked, maintained, and treated regularly to avoid problems such as corrosion, bacteria and system fouling which will ultimately lead to equipment and process system failure, inconvenience and expense.
The first step to good quality water is to implement a water treatment plan. As part of our planned preventative maintenance contracts, ICS Cool Energy now carry out as standard, sampling and independent laboratory analysis.
An easy-to-read report is issued, indicating any defects that fall outside of the recommended parameters.
A detailed action plan is then created and can be implemented for you – returning and maintaining the quality of your water to best practice standards.
- Prevent system degradation by regular monitoring and treatment
- Increase system efficiency
- Increase the life of your system and equipment
- Reduce maintenance and repair costs
- Protect the quality of your process system

Side Stream Filtration
Should your systems show signs of increased suspended solids, corrosion, or other debris, there are a number of devices that can be used to remove such contamination.
This includes strainers, filters, magnetic filters, dirt separators, combined air and dirt separators as well so commonly found side stream filtration. All these have a role to play, and when applied correctly can have a positive impact on cleaning and continued protection of closed circuits.
A number of systems have side-stream filtration included at the design stage in order to safeguard some of the issues we have highlighted above. Such equipment is simple easy to install and has a simple process of solids removal. Side stream filters are designed to constantly pass 5-15% of the circulating water through a filter housing resulting in the total system volume being filtered 2 to 3 times every 24 hours.
