Maintaining A Bacteria-Free Purified Water System

Posted by Peter Wood on 26-Apr-2019 10:56:13

It is crucial for manufacturers to maintain the proper quality of water for their purposes and sector requirements. It is not enough to install the best water purification systems if there are no proper systems in place to keep the system free of bacteria. Pre-treatment devices and the reverse osmosis (RO) system are the systems most at risk from contamination, so require regular testing, cleaning and maintenance to prevent bacterial build-up.

5 Ways Of Recycling Water For Commercial Businesses

Posted by Peter Wood on 01-Dec-2017 11:00:00

Process water is used in many commercial businesses, often in very high volumes. As it is used, process water often picks up impurities and contaminants that need to be stripped out before the wastewater can be released back into the water network. This is expensive for the businesses concerned, as well as being extremely wasteful. Thus, facilities that use large amounts of process water frequently benefit from employing techniques that can conserve and recycle process water for further use. This not only makes sound environmental sense, but can also save businesses a lot of money.

The Benefits Of Quality Servicing And Calibration For Your Purified Water Systems

Posted by Peter Wood on 17-Aug-2017 10:45:00

Efficient And Reliable Operation

Quality servicing will ensure that the purified water system is set up correctly making the best use of any chemicals or consumable items involved. This approach will also ensure that the minimum amount of waste water is generated and passed to drain.

Purified Water Systems — When To Repair And When To Replace

Posted by Peter Wood on 14-Aug-2017 10:55:00

Replacing a purified water system is a big capital investment - but there are also significant costs associated with trying to keep outdated, obselete systems going longer than their natural lifespan. So how do you know when it's time to replace your purified water system, rather than just repair it?

Let's consider some of the key factors that will affect your decision:

Life Span

The life span of purified water systems is variable depending on the industry involved and the standards required. A reasonable life span of a system is 15 years. However, there are plenty of 25+ year old systems in operation.

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.
