Stina to Install Soft Wave Units at UBC Thunderbird Sports Complex
November 22, 2016
Stina Resources Ltd. (“the Company”) is pleased to announce it will be installing a Soft Wave unit on the Evaporative Condenser for the Ammonia system which cools all three arenas at the Thunderbird Sports Complex, located at the University of British Columbia.
The installation is planned for the first week in January, and the condenser will run on Soft Wave only, without the chemical additives used in the past. Uptime Industrial will be making the installation, and water readings and tests have already been initiated as benchmark comparatives against future test results and readings. More information will be released as it comes available.
Stina's goal is to demonstrate the cost savings and environmental footprint reduction using Soft Wave technology, specifically in industrial settings. By establishing Soft wave technology as a new and effective alternative to chemical treatment, monetization of the technology will be quickly realized, translating into increasing revenues for Stina. This will help define a business model that would include a wide range of commercial and residential customers.
About Soft Wave
Soft Wave is a non-chemical water treatment system that provides a number of cost-saving, environmental, and personal benefits to household consumers, businesses, city water infrastructures, and large industrial operations. Soft Wave dissolves and suspends minerals in the water, thus preventing scale formation inside the pipes and the elimination of prior scaling. Soft Wave technology has been in development for over six years and has been commercially available in the U.S. for the past three years. During that time, Soft Wave has been installed in such locations as Dole Foods, Fresh Express and Best Western Hotels, in addition to a number of other well-known companies throughout North America. Soft Wave is completely scalable and works as well in homes as it does in power plants. Benefits include a reduction or elimination of all chemical additives in your water system, elimination of calcium and mineral deposits, reduced maintenance or replacement costs of a system, and significant cost savings while reducing environmental footprints. Applying Soft Wave technology in industrial cooling tower operations reduces water evaporation, eliminates the need for chemical cleaning and will normally lead to increased cycles. These factors combine to decrease the required makeup water, and decrease the blow down water, thus saving millions of gallons of water and reducing the reliance on chemical treatment to prevent scaling, and reduce production downtime. This means potential large scale industrial cost savings through reduced wear and tear on components, reduced liability, reduced overhead, and increases in efficiency. Potential customers are numerous, from power plants, to refineries, steel factories, agricultural operations, food production plants, city water systems, and residential homes. Stina acquired the Canadian distribution rights for Soft Wave from AGT earlier this year.
