Camille Beckman

Camille Beckman

There are two possible sources of water for the Camille Beckman facility: city water and an Artesian well that’s on their property. The city water is extremely hard, so they use the well water, which is 4 grains of hardness. The products that Camille Beckman manufactures soften and moisturize the skin, so even 4 grains of hardness is too hard for these types of products. Read full case study.

Holiday Inn

Holiday Inn replaced 2 sets of recirculation pumps for their boiler in 2 years, costing a total of $3000. These pumps are used to continuously circulate hot water throughout the large hotel.

Kelley Williamson Oil

Kelley Williamson Oil

We originally approached them when they had a competitor’s equipment. Kelley Williamson claimed that they had the best coffee in town. When our sales representative asked them questions to explore just how well the equipment was working, and how reliable it was, an opportunity was uncovered. There was a lack of quality both in product and service. The customer wanted spot-free rinse and improved coffee/beverages. Read full case study.

Treasure island Resort and Casino

Treasure Island Resort and Casino

Treasure Island Casino had recently purchased a triplex softener system and was asked to be a test site for Culligan’s MVP controller. The customer was interested in the new controller because it offered the ease of programming; with the push of a button, all of the softeners take on the same setting. Treasure Island had a relatively new softener system with older controls, so as part of the field test, we upgraded the Treasure Island system with MVP (in 2002). Read full case study.
