November 2014

Sharjah-based readymix concrete company Conmix has diversified its portfolio with the addition of water treatment additives.

The new range of products include cleaning, degreasing and disinfecting additives for the treatment of waste water and potable water.

Tailor-made solutions are also offered, which include systems and chemical additives that prevent and reduce various contaminations like scale deposition, corrosion build-up and microbiological fouling in the systems.

These solutions also help provide optimum heat transfer efficiency in applications such as cooling towers, boilers, chillers and swimming pools.

Besides these products, the firm aims to provide customised combinations with the ‘On-load Brush Cleaning System’ for problems encountered in industrial water treatment, which are described as the best solution to maximise heat transfer in heat exchangers and condensers.

Conmix was established in 1975 as a joint venture between the Bukhatir Group and German-Gulf Enterprises.
