The FASTAC System (Fluid Application Specific Treatment And Control System) eliminates or greatly reduces the necessity of chemical biocide additions for coolants and industrial fluids or chlorine or other chemical additives in water applications, which can produce dangerous residual byproducts.
The prospective benefits of T3Iís technology include a healthier workplace environment for millions of workers, lower operating costs for manufacturers through cleaner industrial process technologies and improved fluid and water treatment with less use of chemicals that represent an environmental hazard.
T3I commercially introduced its FASTAC technology to treat and control contaminated metalworking fluids, coolants and lubricants used in the automotive, aerospace, farm/construction equipment and other machining industries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has listed exposure to these fluids as one of the top workplace health hazards in the US with over 1.3 million workers facing this exposure.
Although the cause of these health problems has not been definitively proven, many experts believe the microbial contaminants (bacteria, fungus, and bacterial by-products or endotoxin) and chemical biocides used to combat the microbial contamination are the key contributors or suspects.
For years, the automotive industry has been seeking better ways to contain the high levels
of bacterial contamination without the use of toxic biocides. T3I's FASTAC represents the first successful application of an "electro-technology" to this problem.
FASTAC delivers strong operational benefits. These benefits include less hazardous waste treatment and disposal volumes associated with these fluids; less downtime from "dumping" contaminated fluids; extending coolant bath life which lowers costs; and better performing fluids results in better productivity, parts quality and extended tool life.
FASTAC is also being applied to a number of other fluid and water treatment applications including:
T3I is also developing this technology for the treatment and control of airborne pathogen contamination (tuberculosis, Legionella, Pontiac-Fever, etc.) of hospital, public building and industrial complex air ducts and circulation systems.
- Metalworking fluids used in the food and beverage canning/packaging industries where there is the desire to reduce or eliminate the use of biocides and to eliminate additives that may leave a residual "taste" associated with the packaging.
- Process water in the paper, plastics, synthetic fibers, petro-chemical, food and other industries.
- Cooling towers and parts washing stations. These systems are found throughout industry and business including the metalworking industries.
- Zebra mussel infested service water systems in power plants
- Closed Loop Aquaculture water
- Wastewater treatment (municipal and industrial)
- Potable water applications
- Commercial shipping ballast water exchange
- Sludge and slurries
