Industrial water treatment provides systems that are designed to be straightforward and intricate, economical, and compact in order to handle various applications that depend upon the water treatment industry. This reliance exists due to the harmful effects that untreated water has on production processes which include decreasing the performance of equipment used in industrial applications. Industrial water treatment ensures that the water utilized in any process throughout plants will not compromise productivity.

Since industrial water treatment encompasses several different technologies, this post will focus on providing a complete detailing of the systems that are generally used, including how they function in order for our readers to ascertain the most appropriate solutions for your facility.


Industrial Water Treatment: Primary Goal

The main objective of industrial water treatment is preventing the formation of unwanted situations such as corrosion, scaling, and biological pollution, including maintaining water treatment standards. All of these conditions have produce deterioration on industrial process equipment such as pipes, cooling towers, and boiler feeds, which reduces performance and increases costs for repair or replacements. Harmful mineral salts such as magnesium and calcium are responsible for these corrosive effects and are removed through industrial water softener systems and reverse osmosis systems. Other industrial water treatment systems such as boiler feed systems, wastewater treatment systems, and cooling tower water treatment systems work well in preventing these issues for their own respective equipment but are also vulnerable to corrosion as a result of scaling conditions.

Industries that require a specific water quality will often need help determining the correct industrial water treatment system that consists of the necessary features needed to accomplish this objective. Offshore locations, power plants, refineries, and military bases demand specialized solutions that only certain industrial water treatment systems can deliver such as:

While the ultimate goal of industrial water treatment systems is to produce and supply clean water to facilities for the purposes of improving labor and equipment performance; other advantages which are included consist of:

  • Assisting facilities to meet local rules and requirements
  • Preserving equipment processes
  • Reducing chemical usage
  • Saving water & energy
  • Decreasing labor costs
  • Minimizing maintenance requirements; saving further costs
