In our next post in this series, we want to discuss causes of microbiological fouling. This type of fouling occurs when planktonic, or free floating bacteria, attach to surfaces throughout the cooling system. As they attach, the bacteria will form a slime barrier that is used to protect the bacteria and to enhance the ability to stay attached to the surface. This environment they produce also helps with growth of the bacteria as it is a stable surrounding that can provide the food and protection needed for the bacteria to flourish.
We’re back from another great AWT show. We really enjoyed meeting new water treatment professionals, seeing many of our terrific customers, and spending time in beautiful San Diego.
This year’s AWT was truly special. We were incredibly humbled and honored to be recognized by our peers, customers, and the AWT as the 2016 Supplier of the Year.
So, what does it mean to be named Supplier of The Year?
QualiChem is happy to announce that we recently opened a new water treatment manufacturing facility in Verdi, NV, located just outside of the Reno area. This manufacturing plant offers the same level of quality products as our plants in Salem, VA that QualiChem is known for and is managed by long term QualiChem staff that relocated from our Salem location. Since our last expansion, with a new facility in Salem, VA in 2017, QualiChem has had continued growth allowing for this West Coast expansion.
QualiChem recently opened a new Research Center in Salem, VA. This new facility contains expanded Laboratory space as well as additional Executive Offices and Boardroom. The Research Center Lab allows the company to better separate the manufacturing lab support functions from the product development lab activities. The Research Center also provides additional Executive office space to support the overall growth of the company.
