Wärtsilä Water Conditioner Unit (WWCU)

The performance of an engine’s cooling system can be improved, and corrosion prevented by improving the quality of the coolant. The Wärtsilä Water Conditioner Unit improves water quality by adjusting its pH, alkalinity, and hardness, and by controlling scaling, restricting bacterial growth, and removing sludge.

The Wärtsilä Water Conditioner Unit is available for both Marine and Power Plant installations and is delivered as a turnkey solution.
