Influent Water Treatment Solutions
Treating incoming water to the facility is a key first step to minimizing the microbial contamination downstream. Chemstar WATER has been a trusted provider of secondary potable disinfection systems for many commercial and residential buildings.
Although each customer’s water treatment requirements are different, generally, we believe treating the plant make-up water upfront is more effective than treating the water chemically when it is in the boiler and cooling systems. With this approach, we believe that our customers can achieve the lowest cost of operation in the long run.
Chemstar WATER prides itself on utilizing the latest cutting-edge technology from the industry when solving our customers’ water treatment challenges. In the case of feed water treatment, we utilize a wide variety of technologies such as water filtration and softening systems, demineralizers, dealkalizers, reverse osmosis, electrodialysis reversal, electro deionization, and electrolysis processes.
Why do you need to treat your industrial facility’s feed or influent water?
- To ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of the treatment process: Proper feedwater treatment is essential for an industrial plant’s smooth and efficient operation. If the feedwater is not properly treated, it can lead to a variety of problems, such as corrosion, scaling, and fouling of equipment and pipes, which can result in reduced efficiency and increased downtime.
- To protect equipment and prolong its lifespan: Proper feedwater treatment can help prevent the buildup of contaminants and deposits on equipment, reducing wear and tear and prolonging its lifespan.
- To meet regulatory requirements: Many industrial plants are subject to regulatory standards and guidelines that require them to treat their feedwater to specific levels of purity. These standards are often based on the type of industry and the specific equipment used, and failure to meet these standards can result in fines and other penalties.
- To improve product quality: In some cases, the quality of the final product produced by an industrial plant can be affected by the quality of the feedwater used. Proper feedwater treatment can help ensure that the final product meets the required quality standards.
Overall, the importance of treating industrial plant feedwater in a more technical and detailed manner is due to its numerous benefits in terms of efficiency, equipment protection, regulatory compliance, and product quality.
What is Secondary Disinfection for Buildings?
Secondary potable water disinfection refers to the process of treating water that has already been treated at a water treatment plant to remove further or kill any remaining contaminants or pathogenic microorganisms. This is typically done to ensure that the water is safe for drinking and other domestic purposes in buildings.
Several methods can be used for secondary disinfection, including the use of chemical disinfectants such as chlorine or chloramine, and mixed oxidant solutions. The specific method will depend on the type of contaminants that need to be removed or inactivated and the available equipment.
Secondary disinfection is often used in buildings that have their own water supply, such as large apartment buildings, hospitals, and schools. It can also be used to treat water that has been stored in tanks or reservoirs for extended periods of time or water that has been transported over long distances.
Overall, secondary potable water disinfection is important in ensuring the safety and quality of drinking water in buildings. It helps to protect the health of the building’s occupants by reducing the risk of waterborne diseases such as Legionnaire’s disease.
