What Is Smart Release Technology

Smart Release Application

Smart Release® Technology uses concentrated chemistries which require fewer pounds of product per system than traditional liquids. Simply calculate the required pounds of each product and the corresponding feed equipment required based upon the cooling system’s annual gallons of blowdown.

Alternatively, use the table below to determine the estimated annual usage of each product based upon the system size.

Estimated Annual usage by product

Gallons of Blowdown per Year Scale & Corrosion Inhibitor Oxidizing Biocide Usage Non-Oxidizing Biocide Usage
125,000 gallons 25lbs 12lbs 5lbs
250,000 gallons 50lbs 24lbs 10lbs
500,000 gallons 100lbs 48lbs 21lbs
1,000,000 gallons 200lbs 95lbs 42lbs
1,500,000 gallons 300lbs 143lbs 63lbs
>1,500,000 gallons Please consult with a Smart Release® representative for proper sizing.

For more specific intermediate system sizes, use the following conversions to estimate annual chemical usage:

  • 1lb Scale and Corrosion Inhibitors = 5,000 gallons of blowdown
  • 1lb Oxidizing Biocide = 10,500 gallons of blowdown
  • 1lb Non-Oxidizing Biocide = 25,000 gallons of blowdown

Size the system for peak monthly usage. Do this by dividing the total gallons of blowdown for this peak month by the amount of blowdown that is treated by 1lb of chemistry. Then, select the number of feeders needed to accommodate the required chemical usage.

BIOCIDES

We offer oxidizing and non-oxidizing biocides to complete your water treatment solution.

BROMICIDE® 1” TABLETS

Brominators

BromiCide® is a broad-spectrum bromine based oxidizing biocide. BromiCide tablets are designed for effective microbiological control in open recirculating cooling water systems and industrial process waters. BromiCide tablets are used with the Smart Release® brominator (ox-biocide feeder with biocide membrane basket or BMB). The 1” tablets contain Bromo-chloro-5,5-dimethylhydantoin packaged in a convenient 25lb pail. The dissolution rate of the tablets are dependent on temperature and flow through the system.

  • Broad spectrum kill for bacteria, algae, and fungi, all of which all are unable to develop a tolerance.
  • Reduces risk associated with waterborne pathogens, including Legionella.
  • Easier handling than gas or liquid oxidizing biocides, and reduced risk of chemical accidents and environmental exposure.
  • Smart Release® minimizes maintenance costs – no pumping required.
  • Provides low-level continuous chlorination.

NON-OXIDIZING BIOCIDE SMART RELEASE® BIO-CLEAR

Biocide Box

The product is a broad spectrum, non-oxidizing biocide effective against a range of bacteria. The product contains a solid form of 2,2-Dibromo-3- nitrilopropionamide packaged in a Smart Release® membrane canister. The product is designed for use in open recirculating cooling water systems where a 30-day Smart Release® biocide treatment is desired.

  • Smart Release minimizes maintenance costs - No Pumping Required
  • Smart Release containers prevent human exposure to chemicals
  • Controls biofilm and microbiological contamination
  • Reduces risk associated with water born pathogens

Packaging: 12lb Box
(Twelve 1lb Canisters or Six 2lbs Canisters)
