The Benefits of Recycling & Recovering Deionised Rinse Water Using An IONMASTER ACTB Deioniser

Posted by Peter Wood on 17-Jan-2017 09:01:00

Most industrial metal and plastics surface finishing process lines include a Deionised water rinse stage. This stage is invariably to rinse the components and ensure that no contaminants are left on the surface of the workpiece.

This process is critical to ensure good surface adhesion for whatever the component is then being coated with.

It is still the practice in many surface finishing processes to use the Deionised water in the rinsing process and then allow it to overflow to drain. This practice has implications in water cost, effluent discharge cost, regeneration and effluent treatment chemical cost, product quality and Deionised water quality.

What Is Industrial Reverse Osmosis And Can It Help Improve Your Water Quality?

Posted by Peter Wood on 29-Dec-2016 11:20:00

Getting the right standard of manufacturing water you need for your facility is possible using industrial reverse osmosis (RO). This is very effective at removing a number of contaminants in water, and is a very simple process at its core. However, there are also guidelines which must be followed to ensure that the system continues to work correctly.

3 Principles Of Industrial Water Treatment You Need To Know To Maintain High Water Quality

Posted by Peter Wood on 12-Dec-2016 14:00:00


Industrial water treatment is crucial for every process in a manufacturing facility, from cooling and cleaning to rinsing and processing. When water purity cannot be maintained, products and the equipment used to manufacture them can suffer, leading to costly downtime and even costlier equipment repair or replacement.

In order to avoid the premature replacement of components or equipment, it’s essential to understand the following principles of industrial water treatment.

How To Remove Chemical Impurities In Water Using A Deionisation System

Posted by Peter Wood on 05-Dec-2016 08:58:00

Maintaining the quality of water in any facility is a constant challenge. This is especially true in facilities that require pure water for manufacturing. Deionisation produces water in its purest form, free of chemicals, minerals and other impurities. This article will explain more about how deionisation affects chemical impurities in water.

The Importance Of Selecting &  Maintaining Quality Ion Exchange Resins

Posted by Peter Wood on 28-Nov-2016 11:18:00


In the same way that Reverse Osmosis plants are dependent on the RO membranes, Deionisers are very dependent on the performance of the Ion Exchange resins within.

During the life span of Ion exchange resins, the performance of the resins will change. This is a factor of the physical condition of the resins and the level of fouling that the resins have on them.

Here’s Why You Need To Get Your RO Membrane Cleaning Right

Posted by Peter Wood on 22-Nov-2016 11:13:00

 

Cleaning and maintenance can be a vital part of having an RO water treatment system in your facility. Membranes can become fouled by several contaminants including algae, viruses, fungi and bacteria. If left untreated, these contaminants can affect the entire system, forcing a complete shut-down that can significantly impact your operation.

It's worth pointing out that whilst there many RO’s that need cleaning and cleaning regularly, there are many RO units that operate without ever being cleaned. It’s all down to the quality of the feed water and the quality of the pre treatment - for more information go to http://www.wychwood-water.com/process/reverse-osmosis/.

The Importance Of Quality Servicing And Calibration In The Successful Operation Of A Water Treatment System

Posted by Peter Wood on 18-Nov-2016 14:07:00

You cannot beat quality servicing and calibration in the successful operation of water treatment systems.

Preventive Maintenance

Quality preventive maintenance procedures conducted by an experienced Engineer will optimise the performance of the plant and itemise and predict items that will require replacement in the future. During the servicing of a plant the full automatic process operation of the plant should be tested and replicated in detail. This will often involve adjustments to compensate for seasonal variations and temperatures. All flows, pressures, draws and velocities should be examined and compared with previous service and commissioning data. Quality preventive maintenance will maximise efficient plant operation and minimise costly plant down time.

Tips For Choosing A Water Purification And Treatment System For The Cosmetics And Toiletries Industry

Posted by Peter Wood on 15-Nov-2016 08:56:00

The type of water purification and treatment system you will need for your cosmetics business will depend on the products you are manufacturing, as well as the size of your operation. Ultimately, however, you will need to choose a system that will allow you to adhere to British and European Pharmacopeia standards for water purification.


Generally speaking, the water purification and treatment system you choose for your cosmetics business will be one that produces water with little to no impurities like nitrates, chlorides, heavy metals and sulphates. Any system used to purify manufacturing water must avoid areas where stagnation might be a risk, as this can lead to the proliferation of bacteria.
