Water treatment for Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities

Our Healthcare Group understands that properly treated water and air can have a significant impact on the health, safety and comfort of your patients and staff. Fresh indoor air quality, comfortable room temperatures, and safe water can all contribute to your hospital image and help assure acceptance of Medicare patients, and our solutions can help you address the issues you typically face in these areas.

Nalco can help you maintain a healthy bottom line by reducing your overall operating expenses. By partnering with us, you will have access to products and services that will monitor, control and improve water and air quality throughout your property, while effectively lowering overall cost.

Our programs are structured to help you:

  • Attain a favorable Return On Investment (ROI)
  • Comply with applicable guidelines and regulations such as JCAHO, OSHA, EPA, ASHRAE, and CDC
  • Reduce your risks and liability due to pathogen due diligence
  • Increase your overall operational efficiency
  • Improve water and energy management
  • Minimize your maintenance expenses
  • Extend the life of capital assets (cooling towers, chillers, boilers and sterilizers)
  • Reduce packaging disposal expenses
  • Promote positive patient experience through improving indoor air quality

Nalco’s unique solutions are backed by over 200 PhDs and years of R&D developing the most cutting edge offerings in the market. A summary of a number of our unique innovations are included below:

Cooling Systems: 3D TRASAR® Technology for Cooling Systems utilizes state-of-the-art monitoring/control equipment that ensures optimum water reuse in addition to preventing corrosion, scale, deposition and microbiological contamination. The result is maximum energy efficiency and cost savings. Backed by our Nalco 360™ Service, a monitoring and guidance smart system manned by technical experts 24/7, 365 days a year, you can be assured that you will receive efficient and quick responses to all system alarms.

Boiler Systems: 3D TRASAR Boiler Technology uses state-of-the-art monitoring/control equipment to ensure optimum water reuse in addition to preventing corrosion, scale and deposition in feedwater systems. The unique control aspects ensure pre-boiler corrosion is non-existent while the water-side internals of the boiler are maintained deposit-free.

Green Water Treatment: Facilities are pressured more and more to be “Green”. Nalco follows a prioritized mechanical, operational and chemical solution approach to reduce chemical use and develop a green water treatment program. Using unique mechanical devices and alternative water sources (i.e. grey water reuse, system blowdown water, etc…) to increase system efficiency and reduce your water/energy/carbon footprint.

Facility Education Programs: Develop your own training program for managers and operators from the following three options:

  • Workshops: Developed to learn among peers in your industry along with Nalco’s industry experts
  • Technical training: Focused training sessions on areas of your choice
  • Nalco Customer University: On-line courses that follow a personal long-term training plan.

Pathogen Risk Management: Nalco Environmental Hygiene Services performs risk management consultation for both water and air handling systems, identifying high risk areas for Legionella outbreaks. In addition, emergency remediation for any outbreaks are available through this group.

Water Reduction Programs: We understand the primary issues impacting your water systems, and we offer a variety of water reuse programs to suit your needs. Previous projects that have been implemented across multiple industries include:

  • Grey Water Reuse for towers and boilers 
  • Recycling air handler condensation
  • Boiler and cooling water blowdown recycle
  • Zero-Discharge power plants

Water reduction programs allow Nalco to leverage world-class technical and research resources. This capability allows us to ensure the highest return on investment for each project.

Sustainable Solutions: Whether your campus pursues L.E.E.D.® certification, ENERGY STAR® status or any other sustainable goals, Nalco Sales Engineers are available to provide guidance about how our programs can compliment these initiatives. Our in-house L.E.E.D.-AP engineers are also available with a wide array of services.

Indoor Air Quality Programs: From sick building syndrome to reducing air handler energy costs, Environmental Hygiene Consultants are ready to help you improve your indoor environment and effectively reduce facility risk. These programs compliment water-side heat transfer programs developing a full Air Handler Maintenance program unmatched within the industry. Combining high efficiency filtration, (typically a three to four month payback on energy costs) and our patented COIL-FLO® cleaning services, fans and air coils are returned to their original design efficiencies. This reduces hot/cold calls while providing efficiency and a reduced carbon footprint for building managers.
