Simply put – slower is better!

Since 1996, Aqua-Chem’s low-speed, direct-drive vapor compression technology has proven to be the lowest speed, most reliable technology in the pharmaceutical and bottled water industry today. Lower speeds result in cooler bearing temperatures, extending the life of all rotating elements in the compressor assembly, specifically the vapor compressor steam seals, the most critical component in maintaining product quality. Our units’ external bearing box design prevents heat transfer from the clean vapor in the compressor directly to the compressor motor, reducing motor bearing life. When compared to similar technologies with compressor motor bearing temperatures in excess of 100C, it stands far above the competition as the superior technology for ensuring quality with maximum reliability.

We are so confident in our technology that Aqua-Chem guarantees a 5X compressor life over all competing models, as is evident in our standard 5-yr compressor warranty, the standard on every Aqua-Chem unit. Still skeptical? Just ask us for a reference – we will be glad to provide as many as needed to convince you of what many others have experienced.

Aqua-Chem – the leader in reliable, efficient and repeatable distillation technology.
