What is Industrial Water treatment?
It is vital to understand the application for which the water will be used and what types of impurities, if left untreated, would be damaging to the end use in order to accomplish and fulfil the industrial water treatment criteria.
If the water will be used for several purposes, it is critical to choose the most demanding application and its criteria to ensure that the water treatment system's design and performance satisfy the standard. The method should be designed to fulfil the more demanding specifications.
To attain these objectives, membrane filtration and de-carbonation are often used, followed by Ion exchange and/or demineralizers.
Industrial Water treatment_ What to expect?
Netsol Water in the industrial water treatment sector, remove dissolved mineral salts, hydrogen sulphide gas (H2S), and carbon dioxide gas (CO2), and understand how critical correct water treatment is in industrial applications such as boiler feed systems and steam production.
Water specialists must develop and construct industrial water treatment equipment’s capable of performing activities such as de-carbonation to remove CO2 in an effort to avoid carbonic acid generation, in order to fulfil the stringent operating standards and meet the industrial process requirements.
De-carbonation and de-aeration towers remove CO2 (carbon dioxide) and H2S (hydrogen sulphide) dissolved gases to reduce operational expenses and avoid damaging scale and corrosion.
Industrial water treatment is also used to purify water for various forms of production where the water will come into direct touch with the made goods, such as in the semi-conductor industry, where water is used to clean the surface during the manufacturing process. A needed standard is the removal of hazardous materials, minerals, iron, and mineral salts, as well as the prevention of bacterial development. Industrial water can also be used directly in industries where it is integrated into final goods, such as pharmaceuticals and food and beverage.
The primary goal of Industrial water treatment
It is to avoid corrosion, scaling, and biological development, as well as to meet water disposal regulations. Without the removal of dangerous mineral salts and corrosive gases, the architecture of industrial process equipment, such as pipelines, cooling towers, and boilers, would be vulnerable to corrosion, scaling, and eventual system failure.
When industrial water treatment systems go out of balance and crucial components are exposed to corrosive scaling conditions, a catastrophic system collapse can ensue. Scaling or corrosion that compromises boiler tube efficiency frequently causes critical operations, such as steam production, to be shut off.
To fulfil the necessary water quality for the industrial process, steam generation, or inclusion into a food or beverage, an industrial water treatment system often employs many types of procedures in sequence or in parallel.
Different methods employed in industrial water treatment
Within the industrial water treatment business, there are numerous different types of processes that are regularly used. Membrane filtration (reverse osmosis) water filtering is frequently followed by de-aeration, de-gasification, or de-carbonation, followed by further ion exchange treatment, and disinfection, accomplished using chemical treatment, ozonation, or UV light.
Necessity of adhering to stringent water quality criteria
Water treatment using UV light generates a need for the water treatment systems used in industrial water operations to be kept in excellent working order and cleaned on a regular basis.
To avoid poor performance and system failure, de-carbonation and de-gasification towers should be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis, and media beds should be cleaned or replaced. These towers will not be able to adequately remove hydrogen sulphide gases, carbon dioxide gases, or the removal or inducement of oxygen gases if they are not properly maintained.
Whether the industrial water process is being used to convert to steam, clean, rinse, treat, or be incorporated into a final product, the need for proper industrial water treatment and off gas treatment remains the same, and design professionalshave access to a wide range of industrial water treatment equipment and systems produced by Netsol Water to help them develop the highest quality systems for each application.
