Configuring Deposit Control for Special Needs

For special needs and situations, TWT Deposit Control Systems can be deployed in different modular configurations, scaling to fit your specific needs.

Example:
An industrial plant with 2" piping and a moderate to high Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) level could be treated with the expected TWT 402 (2") Deposit Controller and the appropriate 2" Reaction Chamber or Copper Pipe Signal Enhancer.

If that site, however, had a very high TDS level, the 2" pipe would best be treated by a 3", 4", or even 6" TWT Deposit Controller combined with the appropriate 2" Reaction Chamber or Copper Pipe Signal Enhancer, depending upon the severity of the TDS level.

The increased signal power available from upsized controllers provides the necessary signal penetration on the line, without changing the plumbing configuration (2" Reaction Chamber used with the upsized controller maintains the existing pipe configurations).

In other words, for unusual situations, application of TWT products can be scaled up to meet those needs.

Guide to Choosing Your Deposit Control Products by Volume of Water

The proper use of a TWT Deposit Control System will generally allow standard water system operation at concentration ratios of between 6 and 8, conserving a great deal of water and energy.† Average untreated systems typically run at concentration ratios of between 3 and 4.

The chart below is provided as a guide and approximation only - the choice of products to be used at any given site will depend upon the water quality and other specifics of that site

Assuming a Concentration Ratio of between 6 and 8:

  • A 2" TWT Deposit Control System can generally treat a recirculating volume of water up to 6,000 gallons.
  • A 4" TWT Deposit Control System can generally treat a recirculating volume of water up to 19,000 gallons.
  • A 6" TWT Deposit Control System can generally treat a recirculating volume of water up to 43,000 gallons.
  • An 8" TWT Deposit Control System can generally treat a recirculating volume of water up to 77,000 gallons.
