INDUSTRIAL WATER TREATMENT SERVICES

Industrial uses of water encompass a wide range of applications across various sectors. Water is a crucial resource for many industrial processes due to its unique properties and versatility.

COMMON INDUSTRIAL USES OF WATER

Industrial uses of water encompass a wide range of applications across various sectors. Water is a crucial resource for many industrial processes due to its unique properties and versatility.

Listed below are just some examples of how water is indispensable in various industrial processes and highlight how properly treating source water can provide substantial benefits. Efficient water management and conservation practices are essential to ensure sustainable industrial operations while minimizing environmental impacts. Several new technologies that once provided a competitive edge for forward thinking companies have become standard over the past decade.

 

Reach out to WaterWise with your process challenges to see how we might be able to help your company realize sustainable water usage goals.

GENERAL MANUFACTURING

Water is commonly used in manufacturing either as a component of the specific manufactured item or as a process element within a manufacturing process.  In either of the above scenario, the water usually has a unique specification requirement that has to be adhered to, maintained/controlled via water treatment equipment. The main source water is generally derived from the local municipality or well water system so equipment requirements must be developed and implemented accordingly to maintain the required water specification for a repeatable and reliable product or process.

WATER AS A COOLING MEDIUM

Cooling: Water is used as a cooling medium in industrial processes, such as in power plants, manufacturing facilities, and data centers. Cooling water helps dissipate heat generated during production or energy generation. Many systems utilize ice banks that produce a bank of ice during low energy demand hours and circulate the resultant chilled water from these ice banks during the peak usage daylight hours. Proper water chemistry is critical for water used in conditioning spaces, pre-treatment of the source water can reduce the amount and cost of chemicals for cooling water, cooling towers, and other conditioning water.

PROPER WATER TREATMENT FOR STEAM GENERATION

Steam Generation: Used in a very similar manner to the cooling water listed above, proper water chemistry for steam is also critical. Many industries use water to produce steam for various purposes, including driving turbines, sterilizing equipment, and heating processes.

CLEANING AND SANITATION WATER FILTRATION & TREATMENT

Water is essential for cleaning industrial equipment and products, pool decks and floors at resorts, and many other facilities. It is used for washing, rinsing, and sanitizing surfaces and equipment in food processing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and more. When your source water has high mineral content the cleaning process can have less than desirable results. The reduction off minerals, coupled with the addition of Aqueous Ozone can reduce chemical usage in cleaning and sanitation by up to 90%.

WATER AS A SOLVENT OR REACTANT IN INDUSTRIES

Water often serves as a solvent or a reactant in chemical processes in industries like pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, and chemicals. These are typically deionized water uses and WaterWise have several solutions depending on the demand and source water quality.

WATER TO DILUTE CONCENTRATED SOLUTIONS & CHEMICALS

Water is used to dilute concentrated solutions and chemicals, ensuring proper mixing and reducing their strength to desired levels. Check the label on some of your most used chemicals in your business and you will likely see that water makes up a great percentage of what you are buying.

TRANSPORTATION AND CONVEYANCE

Water is used for transporting raw materials and finished products within industrial facilities, such as in hydraulic systems or pipelines.

WATER FOR DUST CONTROL

In industries like mining and construction, water is applied to control dust emissions from operations, enhancing air quality and safety. WaterWise typically filters water, but in this instance, the water is filtering the air!

TREATING WATER FOR USE IN TEXTILE MANUFACTURING

Water is used in various stages of textile manufacturing, including washing, dyeing, and finishing. Water quality is critical here with special attention paid to turbidity which might negatively impact quality and consistency of colors.

PULP AND WATER PRODUCTION

Pulp and Paper Production: Water is used for pulping wood, washing pulp, and transporting paper fibers during paper and cardboard manufacturing.

PLASTICS MANUFACTURING WATER TREATMENTS

Water is used in cooling extruders and injection molding machines during plastic production. Due to the rapid heat gain, hard water can cause severe scaling issues during this process so it is always a good idea to treat your source water prior to utilizing it for this application.

PURE WATER FOR SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURING

Extremely low conductivity, ultra-pure water is crucial in semiconductor fabrication to clean and rinse silicon wafers, removing contaminants and impurities during the final stages of the manufacturing process.

WATER TREATMENT FOR GLASS PRODUCTION

Water is used in the cooling and shaping of glass products during the manufacturing process.

PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCTION AND WATER TREATMENT

Water is employed for various purposes in pharmaceutical manufacturing, including as a solvent, a cleaning agent, and in drug formulation.

TREATING WATER FOR RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

Laboratories and research facilities use water for experiments, chemical reactions, and equipment cooling and require a wide range of water treatment solutions.
