New generation Baltibond hybrid coating

Save up to 33% water and chemicals

The new generation Baltibond hybrid coating is the result of a continuous process improvement.
There are 3 good reasons to choose for the new generation Baltibond hybrid coating

1. Save money

  • increase the service life of your evaporative cooling equipment
  • reduce water consumption with higher cycles of concentration
  • reduce chemical consumption with higher cycles of concentration
  • Experience an economical alternative to SST 304

A unit protected with the new generation Baltibond hybrid coating can operate at higher cycles of concentration and extended water quality limits. You can operate with the same cycles of concentration as a full stainless steel execution. This results in water and chemical savings up to 33%.

The effect of cycles of concentration on water and chemicals consumption.

Effect of cycles of concentration

2. Increase safety

The smooth surface finish

  • reduces the development of biofilm
  • facilitates internal cleaning

3. Respect the environment

  • Reduce chemical and water rejection
  • Reduce water consumption with higher cycles of concentration

To ensure long service life of your evaporative cooling equipment, we recommend you maintain the circulating water quality within the following limits.

*Higher concentration of Sulfates is allowed, provided the sum of Chlorides + Sulfates parameters does not exceed 500 mg/l for galvanized steel, 650 mg/l for Baltibond/ SST 304
Note: For Ozone water treatment application, Stainless Steel 316 execution is required.
