Protect Your Distribution System & Community

Phosphates Protect – In order to inhibit corrosion in metal pipes of the water distribution network, the pipes need protected and stabilized. When scale flakes off the pipe, a lead or copper contamination source is created. 

Additionally, scale, tuberculation, and biofilm must be removed in many water systems.

Orthophosphate will apply a protective coating (as shown in the photo below) to passivate the metal surface. New piping also requires treatment to inhibit the onset of corrosion. PVC pipes do not corrode, however, this process does foster the growth of biofilm.

The proper phosphate blend will prevent biofilm formation and remove excess tuberculation and scale that causes an increase in chlorine demand in the distribution system.

How Aulick – A CITCO Water Company Can Help Protect Your Customers

Aulick Custom Blended Phosphates– Care was taken during the development of the Verus line regarding its versatility with respect to pH. This is due to variation in pH of water during processing and independent of pH in different locations in the processing plant.

Verus Blended Phosphates are fully functional within the regulatory pH limits of 6.0 and 9.0.

Aulick is committed to supporting water systems and developing new technology for drinking water quality from the water treatment facility to the tap.

While developing our customized phosphate line Aulick’s focus was on:

  • Corrosion Control
  • Cleaning
  • Sequestration

To receive certification, Aulick passed a stringent evaluation. Additionally, to maintain continued quality of Clarus and Verus, Aulick has agreed to the NSF
certification requirements, which include rigorous testing to recognized standards, unannounced manufacturing facility audits and periodic retesting to verify continued conformance to the standards. See our official online certification listing here
