Industrial Water Treatment:
Industrial Process Water Treatment
Untreated process water can lead to scaling and fouling, disrupting industrial processes and adding to the cost of operations. Proper industrial process water treatment can be used to reduce the presence of the minerals responsible for scaling and fouling, as well as unwanted: oils, grease, colors, odors, bacteria, turbidity, acidity and organic compounds. Read more about: The Vital Importance of Industrial Process Water Treatment.
Outsourcing Industrial Water Purification
There are many value-added benefits to outsourcing industrial water purification, including: 24-hour emergency response units, scheduled maintenance and repairs, and remote system monitoring. In addition to turnkey, custom-engineered solutions, outsourcing also offers an economical means of enhancing your existing industrial water purification capabilities with temporary, mobile water treatment. Learn more about the: Advantages of Outsourcing Industrial Water Purification.
Effluent Limitation Guidelines
Manufacturers and industrial businesses are required by law to utilize water treatment technologies that reduce contaminants in wastewater to within acceptable limits prior to discharge. Does your water treatment program meet the Effluent Limitation Guidelines for your industry? Find out here: Industrial Wastewater Treatment and Effluent Limitation Guidelines.
Water Treatment Engineering
At WaterProfessionals®, our water treatment engineering solutions are customized exactly for your needs. We have the expert design and engineering staff to help you evaluate technologies to achieve your goals with water or wastewater treatment, or water reclaim and reuse. It begins with a thorough water analysis, an understanding of the final water quality required, and the current operating parameters, such as flow, temperature, pressure, and discharge limitations. Read more here: Water Treatment Design and Engineering.
Water Filtration and Purification:
Water Purification Applications
There are many applications for water purification, including: recycling wastewater, reducing chemical consumption, and reducing boiler blowdown. Significant amounts of water can be recycled and used again in the manufacturing process after undergoing a water purification process. Read more about: Money Saving Water Purification Applications.
Activated Carbon Filtration
Activated carbon filtration is used in the process of removing organic compounds and/or extracting free chlorine from water, thereby making water suitable for discharge or use in manufacturing processes. The source of carbon and the methods used to produce activated carbon are highly variable and lead to very notable differences across the range of media available to the industry. Learn more about: Activated Carbon Filters.
Ultrafiltration is one of the most advanced methods of industrial water filtration. Ultrafiltration utilizes various types of filters comprised of semi-permeable membranes to remove minute particles suspended in water and minimize silt density. Learn more about Innovative: State-of-the-Art Ultrafiltration of Water.
Membrane filtration is an advanced, state-of-the-art water filtration technology that utilizes a semi-permeable membrane to remove minute particles, chemicals and organisms that are suspended in water. Membrane filtration plays a key role in the preparation of high purity water. Learn more about: State-of-the-Art Membrane Filtration of Water.
Anion vs. Cation Ion Exchange Resins
Anion and cation resins are the two most common resins used in the ion exchange process. These ion exchange resins are typically utilized for demineralization or dealkalization to reduce alkalinity. Anion resins are positively charged, while cation resins are negatively charged. Learn more about: Anion vs. Cation Ion Exchange Resins.
Commercial Reverse Osmosis
Commercial reverse osmosis is a high-tech method for purifying or filtering water. Commercial reverse osmosis uses man-induced pressure to overcome natural osmotic forces and force water with a higher concentration of dissolved minerals through a semipermeable membrane. Commercial reverse osmosis is environmentally friendly, highly cost effective, and capable of removing particulates down to .0001 microns. Read more about: Commercial Reverse Osmosis.
Design Consideration for Industrial RO
Industrial reverse osmosis (RO) is one of the most cost effective methods of treating boiler feedwater, cooling tower makeup water and industrial process water. For an industrial RO system to operate at maximum efficiency, several factors must be taken into consideration, including: the water source; temperature and flow rates; pretreatment methods; microbiological contaminants; and the silt density index.
