In this blog, we explore various methods to achieve energy efficiency in commercial buildings, ranging from HVAC system maintenance to smart building technology.
The Science Behind Water Treatment Additives
When it comes to maintaining the efficiency and longevity of your HVAC system, water treatment additives play a crucial role. VEXO’s water treatment additives have been carefully designed and formulated to help optimise your system’s performance. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the science behind these additives and explore how they protect against corrosion, scaling, and system degradation.

One of the main challenges faced by HVAC systems is corrosion, which can lead to reduced efficiency, equipment failure, and leaks. VEXO’s X-PO water treatment additives work to prevent corrosion by using a combination of chemicals and inhibitors that form a protective barrier on metal surfaces. This barrier helps reduce the electrochemical reactions that cause corrosion and keeps the metal surfaces intact.

Scaling is another major concern for HVAC systems. It occurs when minerals and other dissolved solids in the water form deposits on heat transfer surfaces, such as heat exchangers and pipes. This can lead to reduced heat transfer efficiency, increased energy consumption, and potential equipment failure.
VEXO’s X-PO water treatment additives contain advanced scale inhibitors that work by disrupting the formation of scale deposits. These inhibitors bind to the minerals and solids, preventing them from crystallising and adhering to the surfaces. As a result, the scale particles remain suspended in the water and can be easily removed during routine maintenance.

System Degradation Prevention
Apart from corrosion and scaling, HVAC systems are also susceptible to other forms of degradation, such as microbial growth and fouling. The presence of microbes in the water can lead to the formation of biofilms, which can clog pipes, reduce heat transfer efficiency, and cause unpleasant odours.
Some of VEXO’s X-PO water treatment additives contain biocides that target and eliminate harmful bacteria and other microbes. These biocides work by disrupting the cellular structure of the microorganisms, preventing their growth and multiplication. This helps maintain optimal system performance and prevents the need for costly repairs and replacements.
