New water treatment products good for the environment

The use of the RedProtect© water treatment system from Flamco offers the heating industry the ideal opportunity to reduce the amount of plastic waste generated after use of the chemical, in line with global and local opinion on plastic waste in the environment.

Compared to traditional liquid domestic heating chemicals, the RedProtect© system offers approximately an 84% reduction in plastic packaging content when compared to a traditional one litre chemical jerrycan and an approximately 77% reduction in plastic when compared to a standard 0.5 litre chemical bottle.

Of the 12.9 g of plastic in the RedProtect© product, all 100% is recyclable.

As a solid product, Flamco can guarantee there will be no spilling and no leaks from the new RedProtect© range.

By minimising the size and weight of the products, Flamco has been able to greatly reduce the costs associated with logistics.

As a concentrated range, Flamco is able to minimise the dimensions and weight of the products, greatly reducing its Carbon footprint. One dose of RP1 Corrosion Inhibitor weighs less than 100 g compared to over 500 g for a competitor’s 0.5 litre bottle or over 1 kg for a one litre alternative.

In addition, as RedProtect© is a compact product to transport and store, it significantly reduces the Carbon footprint generated in delivering the RedProtect© range to market.

The reduced size and weight of RedProtect© products helps to minimise the cost of transportation, the space needed in the merchants’ warehouse and space on the shelves. And they are far easier for the engineer to handle and transport in his van.

The RedProtect© product greatly exceeds the performance criteria as set by the NSF Standard (ex BuildCert) and has the full endorsement of the Energy Saving Trust for the effectiveness of RP1 Corrosion Inhibitor in maintaining system efficiency. The product range is supported by a full Research and Development and Analytical laboratory, along with a number of highly qualified PhD and MChem Chemists overseeing activity in the facility.

“We’re proud to be able to launch a new water treatment system that offers a range of genuine benefits over the existing options that installers and specifiers have been using to date,” says John Lynch, Sales Manager – Domestic for Flamco. “From the reduced energy consumption of the circulating pump – an up to 8% saving – to the simplicity of the system, the cleanliness, the reduced weight and the significant environmental benefits, RedProtect© is a winner from every angle. It’s easier and lighter to transport without spilling risks and is already proving to be a popular option in the merchants and in installers vans, contributing to so many companies own environmental programmes.”
