At Aulick, our goal is to enhance drinking water quality and preserve the integrity of the water distribution system with the use of inorganic phosphates. After extensive research, Aulick has developed phosphate blends to maximize their capability to perform the basic functions of:
• corrosion control
During the research and development of the Verus line of blended phosphates, Aulick kept in mind the need for the highest efficiency and effectiveness in order to utilize the lowest possible feed rate, which equates to lower chemical costs.
While phosphates function to clean and attack the corrosion problem, linear polyphosphates also exhibit the capability to sequester heavy and soft metal ions with a valence of +2, which includes iron, manganese, calcium, and magnesium. Sequestration of iron and manganese cations prevent color formation by binding the +2 cations to prevent their oxidation to colored cations. The binding of calcium and magnesium cations (sequestration) acts to soften the water, also improving water quality.
