RMC is a Market Leader in Providing Solid Products for Boiler Water Treatment!
RMC's Solid products are used globally in commercial, institutional, and industrial systems to maintain equipment efficiency and reduce biohazards. The Solid technology provides improved health and safety to enhance sustainability.
7 Benefits of Solids
- No liquids to spill – reduces the risk of slips and falls
- No powders to irritate
- No offensive odors
- Reduced weight equals reduced shipping costs
- No drum disposal costs
- Reduces scale deposits for better heat transfer saves on fuel usage
- Better corrosion control extends equipment life
Easy to transport
- Safer, lighter, easier to load and more ergonomic to reduce the risk of injury
Less refills required
- 50-90% fewer lbs. shipped
- Reduced weight equals reduced fuel usage and CO2 emissions
- Reduces water usage – use what you need when you need it
Maximized floor space
- Neater, cleaner, safer mechanical room
- Frees up floor space
- Compact size conserves space
- May be used to qualify for LEED® certification in innovation, design, solid waste management, sustainable purchasing
The impact of a Solid Chemicals Treatment Program can be quantified in dollars by helping you save time (labor), shipping costs, and inventory costs.
To determine whether RMC's programs can improve your operation, we will conduct a system survey. A representative from Rochester Midland Corporation will work with you to design a customized Solid Chemical Treatment Program to meet your specific needs. We offer the best in class solid chemical products, product dissolvers, pumps and control systems to help you maintain heat transfer efficiency in your boilers, cooling systems and closed loops.
RMC Secure and Chemical Resistant Equipment Enclosure
The ultimate enclosure for your chemical feed pumps, dissolve units and monitoring controller.
- This enclosure provides secondary containment in a safe, secure, weatherproof, and lockable cabinet.
- Designed with extra room to handle not only chemical feed and monitoring equipment but will also accommodate piping manifolds, corrosion coupon racks, and a place for safe and secure product storage.
- This enclosure includes large swing-open doors with heavy-duty windows and liftable top hatch for easy equipment access at the time of installation and routine service.
- Highly chemical resistant in a wide range of chemical and corrosive environments. Made of durable UV Stabilized rotational molded polyethylene, never rusts or corrodes and designed to keep rain and moisture out.
Maximize Floor Space & Stop Hauling Pails
Keep floor space free from obstruction (unlike liquid-filled chemical pails, drums and bulk tank) optimize the square footage of mechanical rooms. Store cases of solid chemistry safely on shelves. No special containment is required.
The packaging for RMC Solid products is fully recyclable. This includes the HDPE for the bottles, the fiberboard packaging for the product, the paper for the labels, and the wrapping for the discs.
Yes, RMC recommends that all chemical feed equipment be installed within a weatherproof enclosure. Your RMC representative will provide information regarding a suitable enclosure.
Whether the equipment is panel-mounted in advance or installed loose in the field, the equipment essentially has 3 tie points for water/solution and 3 anchor points for the mounting bracket. All water/solution connections are easy to tie to, with tubing compression fittings for the inlet water and chemical solution outlet and hose barb for the overflow port. Once the units are installed, start-up and commissioning take minutes.
The Ultra-M dissolve units were designed for increased reliability, quality and durability so our solid chemistry can be dissolved with confidence given any situation. The Ultra-M was built with the advantage of a non-electric mechanical level system and integrated flow control providing accurate chemical dosing for a variety of water treatment systems. All materials of construction are chemically compatible to the solid products in use.
The products are designed to dissolve readily and rapidly to generate safe solutions. Water and ambient temperatures have a small impact on dissolution; these temperatures are often very consistent over shorter periods of time, making it easy to adjust feed rates as necessary. Most products can be field tested for solution strength, allowing for dialing in pump and feed settings during start-up and normal operation.
Yes, CO2 reduction is a direct result of switching to solid chemistry. Assuming a 2,000-ton average load at 5 cycles of concentration, switching from liquids to solids reduce CO2 emissions by 56 tons annually. This can help achieve LEED credits.
4 gallons of RMC Solid Treatment Chemicals are equivalent to a 55-gallon drum of liquid chemical treatment. Use what is needed, when itis needed, with no chance of liquid spill or component separation. No mixing equipment needed.
Yes! Solid chemistry requires best in class raw materials to make high quality products. In fact, solid chemistry can be more effective than liquids in some cases because of the mix of scale and corrosion inhibitors along with the polymeric technology incorporated into the formulation.
With over 20 years of application experience and a continual evolution of product and equipment technology, Solid Chemistry is proven to be a very effective and sustainable solution for cooling tower, boiler, and closed loop applications. With any technology, it takes professional water treaters to properly select, size, and implement solutions; RMC’s water and energy team is ready to..
Solid products have been used since the early days of water treatment, whether it be potatoes, tannins, etc. The Solid Chemistry form used by RMC has been in use for over 25 years.
RMC has had Solid Chemistry in their line for at least 10 years, with longer experience if you include folks who have used products prior to RMC’s incorporation of the technology.
Yes, RMC Cooling water products for scale and corrosion control utilize trace chemistry for ease of testing and control. RMC is also market leader in boiler water treatment technology using solid products to treat boilers operating above 150 PSI.
Solid product chemistry has been effectively used to treat cooling water systems in excess of 1000 tons. The development of the program which includes the applicable products and equipment will be provided by your RMC Technical Representative.
