The benefits of 4G-AQUA are far reaching. In some instances up to 62% savings were achieved on the annual maintenance budget. Where chemicals were used in the past to maintain equipment, this is no longer necessary. In big manufacturing plants up to R100 000 could be spent annually on chemicals. When installing 4G-AQUA, chemicals need not be used any more, resulting in enormous savings. It is estimated that on average down-time can be reduced by half, increasing the savings and the bottom line-profit. In any maintenance manager's budget these substantial savings are critical.
