We are seeking a solution to outsource our water treatment to a third party.  We used to treat our own water which turned out to be detrimental to our plumbing system to say the least.  Then we went the easy route of just using glycal, but that is costly and still time consuming.  Plus we are told it will greatly reduce the ability for our water to absorb heat from the molds.  We have looked for a local company to treat our water with a rust inhibitor and an anti bacterial, but we haven't had any luck.  I wanted to see if anyone else found a solution with a comparable problem.

Quinn, I just had an email conversation with Glen Fish of Revere Plastics Systems who indicated that they treat their tower water with chlorine, H2SO4, and an algeacide.  They do not use glycol

I've asked if they use an outside party of if they allocate staff resources to do this in-house, and I am waiting on his reply.

I have also asked 3 other injection molding company leaders yesterday and am waiting for them to reply.

Quinn, the company that Revere uses is called:

Patriot - aka by most as AMCO. They supply the chemicals, Revere employees make sure they are dispensing and controlled.

Here is their website:
