ProChemTech’s Chemical Plant No. 2 in Apache Junction has been operational for 10 years producing standard and patented products for treatment of boiler, cooling, potable and waste waters.

The plant at 2475 W. Dallas Ave. also supports local Performance Chemical and Engineered Systems Divisions’ on-site service operations. It is in the North Pinal Industrial Park, southwest of Baseline Road and Ironwood Drive.

Chemical Plant No. 1, in Brockway, Pennsylvania, has its main office and laboratory, according to prochemtech.com.

The Apache Junction plant started operation in March 1999, with four employees working from a building with one reactor. Today the plant has three buildings, five reactors and 16 employees, according to a release.

“The AJ plant produces various chemical products by chemical reactions in ‘reactors’ — basically mixing tanks equipped with cooling coils and load cell scales as we batch all products by weight,” Tim Keister, chief chemist, said in an e-mail.

In addition to the production of water/wastewater chemicals, the Engineered Systems Division started local operations in 2018 to support design, manufacture, install and repair systems and equipment such as cooling towers, water recycle and reuse systems, and industrial water and wastewater treatment equipment and systems, according to the release.

Plant improvements for 2019 include installation of a new Delta all-plastic cooling tower to provide reactor and comfort cooling and a new water storage and treatment system to utilize Central Arizona Project water for cooling and process use, the release states.

ProChemTech International Inc. has water management programs that reduce water use in cooling towers and treatment, recycle and reuse of many industrial waters, according to the release.

The firm holds 11 patents on advanced technologies for operation of cooling towers with reduced water use, reuse and recycle of process waters, and on-site generation of biological control products, the release states.

The Apache Junction Independent is mailed each month to 35,000 homes.
