Tailoring requirements from industry to industry, site to site
Often, the level of treatment that needs to be applied to process water is broadly linked to the degree of water purification required for the process. For example, a water feed to a cooling tower would generally require far less treatment than a water supply to a high-power boiler or a printed circuit board manufacturer. A cooling tower may only require solids removal and dosing of a biocide to reduce biological activity. A printed circuit board manufacturer may, however, require process water that is completely free from solids and dissolved salts, as it could come in to contact with and potentially affect the finished product.
There are also other considerations that can affect the quality of process water. Examples at the point of abstraction include the seasonable variability of river water quality and borehole integrity. Your site’s requirements for water may also increase, which can result in the water treatment plant operating above its original design scope – or in turn, the water treatment plant could have reached a point where it requires more maintenance due to ageing.
We offer a range of process water treatment solutions, bespoke to your application and site. These range from chemical dosing through to settlement and filtration, to more advanced treatment such as membrane separation, ion exchange and electrodeionisation. With decades of industry experience, we have a deep level of knowledge and understanding of industrial water processes and systems and are able to ensure your plant is operated and maintained for optimum performance.
