New Jersey – We’re Here to Help!


NuChem got its start in 1983 in the State of New Jersey.  Having spent so much time in the state, NuChem is very familiar with the challenges posed in treating your heating and cooling systems as it relates to the water chemistry.  Both hard and soft water can be found, sometimes in cities right next door to each other.  When dealing with water at the opposite ends of the spectrum, your treatment program needs to be tailored to meet your exact needs. 




When your water tends to the harder side, as it does in many parts of the Garden State, scaling can quickly and easily build up inside of boilers causing these systems to run less efficiently.  Harder water can also lead to an increased risk of corrosion inside of your boiler.  Our goal is to treat and protect your capital investment to get the most use out of your equipment.  Contact us today about setting up an inspection of your boiler system and putting a treatment plan in place.


Cooling Towers


As of the start of 2018, no regulations have been put into place regarding the treatment of cooling towers in New Jersey to help in the prevention of legionella and spread of Legionnaire’s Disease.  Legislation was introduced again into the New Jersey State Senate on January 25, 2018 (Senate, No. 1108) that closely mirrors the law enacted in New York City and State.


NuChem strongly recommends that if you own a building with a cooling tower you begin to put into place now a plan regarding its treatment and the prevention of legionella growth.  At a minimum, we recommend that your tower be cleaned and sanitized a minimum of once yearly while in operation and legionella testing be performed every 90 days.  Taking these steps now will help you along the path to compliance when these regulations become law.  Contact us today to set up a free quote and site inspection of your cooling tower.
