Providing Corrosion, Scale and Biofilm Control Products & Service To Help You Stay In Compliance
Hawkins provides innovative products and specialized service delivered by industry experts. Lead and copper corrosion is a growing regulatory concern. At Hawkins we can analyze your water and make a treatment recommendation based on your potable water’s corrosion potential.
These products are specifically manufactured to combat corrosion, scale and biofilm. We tailor products based on your specific water characteristics within your municipal potable water systems. We carry a very wide range of products and custom blends so we can ensure a facility specific treatment program.
Some of these products include:
- Zinc Orthophosphates
Our local, technical experts are trained to help you optimize your current system with a customized process tailored to your facility. This ensures you stay in compliance with the EPA Lead and Copper Rule.
Treatment recommendations are verified by our Hawkins’ WatSim program. Hawkins’ WatSim (Water Simulation) laboratory analysis provides a more complete picture of problems and potential problems confronting a water system.
Hawkins proprietary corrosion control technology and the individualized treatment programs provide superior corrosion and scale control!
Hawkins lead and copper corrosion control products are ideal for achieving compliance.
We supply the products that prevent lead from leaching into the water. Lead could be in the plumbing or in the lead solder used in the system. Copper is also common within a water system. Hawkins can help you stay in compliance with EPA Lead and Copper regulations.
Lead in your water at elevated rates could have potentially harmful effects. The goal of corrosion control programs is not only to reduce the corrosion of distribution mains but also to minimize the release of lead and copper from residential plumbing fixtures.
About Hawkins’ WatSim (Water Simulation) Laboratory Analysis:
Hawkins’ WatSim (Water Simulation) allows a water treatment professional to evaluate the corrosion and scale potential for common scalants over the range of water chemistry, temperature, and pH anticipated in a system.
Hawkins’ WatSim was developed to allow a water treatment professional to readily evaluate the solubility of lead and copper, and scale potential for common scalants over the broadest of operating ranges without the necessity for tedious manual calculations for the Langelier saturation index, Ryznar stability index, Puckorius equilibrium index, Larson’s Ratio, and C.C.P.P.
Verified by our Hawkins’ WatSim in lab program. Hawkins’ WatSim provides a more complete picture of problems, and potential problems confronting a water treater. With WatSim data a specific, customized solutions can be recommended to ensure accurate water treatment is applied.
Even when all of these common indices are available conflicting results can cloud interpretation of what they are foretelling. WatSim provides additional information in the form of sophisticated ion association model saturation levels.
WatSim allows a water treater to review popular, sophisticated, and some less known indicators relatively painlessly to develop a more complete picture of problems, and potential problems confronting a water treater. A more precise solution can then be determined.
