3 Ways To Recycle Water In Your Manufacturing Facility

Posted by Peter Wood on 06-Aug-2019 10:29:36

Did you know that industrial wastewater can be recycled back into feed water or mains water in the vast majority of cases? Any water used for cooling, light cleaning, or washing is ideal for re-filtration into purified water. Making sure that you get the most out of your process water can help to cut your bills and beat water scarcity. It helps the environment, too. Even if your wastewater is contaminated by pollutants, it can still be salvaged with the right equipment.

So, how is this done? Here are three of the most popular methods that modern industries use.

How To Remove Heavy Metals From Water Supplies

Posted by Peter Wood on 04-Aug-2019 11:14:00

Water sounds pure, but can be nasty stuff. An exciting cocktail of chemicals, pesticides, and bacteria drop into every glass poured. One of the familiar – and most toxic – components is heavy metal. This can lead to many health and safety problems.

4 Signs Your Water Treatment Plant Needs An Upgrade

Posted by Peter Wood on 02-Aug-2019 10:58:00

Is your current water treatment system misbehaving or not producing the results that you want? Have you been experiencing poor quality feed water, strange behaviour from machines, or a slow output rate? Have any processes suffered from substandard items when it comes to quality control? If so, your current equipment may not be up to the tasks that you're setting it.

Solving The Reverse Osmosis/Deionisation Debate

Posted by Peter Wood on 31-Jul-2019 12:01:00

The purity of your water doesn’t only affect the quality of your end product, but also the longevity of your equipment. Your water purification strategy influences how many expensive reagents your plant uses so, while your method can become complex and expensive, it may save you money over the long term. Your highest goal is to achieve 100% pure water. Reverse osmosis and twin bed deionisation are the go-to techniques for achieving that. Both methods are budget-friendly and can be combined with an extra filtration method if needed, but which should you choose?

3 Strategies For Achieving Safe Drinking Water

Posted by Peter Wood on 30-Jul-2019 09:30:01

Pure water is attractive and delicious, and contemporary filtration methods are more powerful and versatile than ever before, achieving both purity and taste without demanding much technical knowledge of their users. The days when you needed a system for every filtration method are over. Commercial water filters often combine two or more techniques in a single tank, so your purification is much more than a process. It’s a strategy. 

Multi-media water filters are significantly more efficient than single-media tanks. By relying on density and stratification, a single tank can achieve soft, safe drinking water, and many of today’s manufacturers will engineer a set of cartridge elements to suit your needs precisely. That said, filtration mediums themselves haven’t changed much over the years. Distillation, reverse osmosis, carbon, and UV light systems remain the core approaches in use today. They’ve improved, certainly, but their methods are the same.

How The UK Achieves Some Of The Safest Drinking Water In The World

Posted by Peter Wood on 19-Jul-2019 10:00:00

The UK’s drinking water is sourced from a huge range of rivers, canals, and underground reservoirs. Its water purification strategy thus needs to be multi-pronged, addressing each source’s challenges on a day-to-day basis. UK tap water is, nonetheless, one of the purest in the world. England, Wales, and Scotland all achieved nearly 100% quality compliance in 2018, but safety isn’t enough. Local water must also be free of safe organisms that mar its taste and clarity. It must also be rich in important minerals that are difficult to source through a healthy diet.

Finding The Best Water Treatment Method For The Pharmaceutical Industry

Posted by Peter Wood on 28-Jun-2019 10:00:00

Water is one of the pharmaceutical industry’s most important commodities. It’s used to create excipients, synthesise ingredients, produce finished drugs, and clean equipment. Each phase of production has its own water quality standards, particularly as they relate to microbiological content. The European Pharmacopoeia regulates water purification according to its use, and laws were tightened up in 1999 when global interest groups expressed concerns about the use of reverse osmosis to purify water for injections. Today, water grades are divided into three broad categories: water for injections, purified water, and highly purified water. These don’t include potable water, which is regulated by its own national authorities.
