Water is used for a wide variety of purposes in industrial production. Water has to be treated, so that sufficient amounts are available in the quality required for production. Process water must generally be re-treated after it has been used, so that it can either be discharged according to regulations or returned to the water cycle.
Highly complex processes in refinery and petrochemical plants demand the competent handling of operational facilities and products. Water and process treatment also have to meet these requirements in order to ensure plant and system safety. Kurita offers you precisely this security: with decades of experience, we advise and support you in the various fields of application. Take advantage of our know-how and our customer proximity.
The paper and board industry is in a geographic and structural transition. The industry is addressed by rising legal, economic and ecological demands which require a high level of innovation. As a leading global provider of unique solutions for industries that use water and energy intensively Kurita has a strong commitment to paper. We have a proven expertise in the supply and application of benchmarking products and technologies that support the paper industry in developing innovative products, optimizing...
In the manufacturing of pulp, the raw material for paper, problems such as the piercing and ripping of paper occur due to calcium carbonate and other scales and pitch deposits (adhesives contained in wood and old paper). To prevent these problems, Kurita Water Industries offers a range of water treatment chemicals such as anti-scale agents and pitch control agents. For the paper-forming process that produces paper from pulp, we offer water treatment chemicals such as slime control agents that help improve the...
Water is one of the most important raw materials for industrial production. For this reason, processes are now used in water treatment that not only produce the required water quality, but also allow for recycling. The treated water can either be fed back into the process, or reused for other purposes. Water recycling plants lead to a significant reduction in operational costs for production.
Paper companies consume large amounts of water in the production process and hence, produce high dumped flow rates. This type of industry also tends to produce the development of filamentous bacteria. The effluent to be treated from wood industries has high loads with elevated solid matter content.
Lyophilization, commonly referred to as freeze drying, is the process of removing water from a product by sublimation and desorption. The freeze drying process is optimised by the introduction of solvents and gas species to improve product quality and to enhance the drying process.
Hiden's gas analysers provide detailed information about the gas/vapour composition during both the primary and secondary drying phases. Detection of the on-set of the secondary drying phase is readily detected. Analysis during the...
Pulp and paper processes use a large amount of water that must be treated for production and reclaimation purposes. Effectively treating water from these processes ensures the disinfection of microorganisms that would otherwise breed in the environment and affect product quality and quantity.
High productivity and a long lifespan for your machinery. At Aquarex, we know that water is a critical part of every system. In injection moulding facilities and other plastic production operations, we usually treat cooling water and processing water.
Total Organic Carbon (TOC) is found in all water supplies as naturally occurring organic matter. Over many years of experience, medium or low pressure UV treatment has become recognised as an effective process step in the breakdown and reduction of TOC in water intended for use in pharmaceutical, health care, power generation and micro-electronics applications. In the latter case, ultra-pure water is used to wash silicon wafers on which even small deposits of carbon compounds on the wafers can severely affect...
Rely on Endress+Hauser to improve your steam energy production and industrial water treatment. Optimizing core processes is a given in many industries. But the processes that are not directly related to the actual product - like steam generation for energy or the industrial water treatment – also offer huge potential for optimization with regards to efficiency, safety and compliance.
Water is an integral part of the mining and metal production process. Large quantities of water are required in sufficiently high quality for all areas of mine operations from exploration, mining, processing, smelting and refining. The requirement to provide treated raw water through to water reuse.
VACUDEST vacuum distillation systems. Premium technologies for stainless steel pickling. through stainless steel surface pickling processes, protecting the stainless steel from corrosion. This generates rinse water whose toxic contents make it impossible to discharge. It must either be treated or disposed of at high cost.
Agribusiness is a collective term for a variety of activities within the agriculture production. It includes amongst others the production of agrichemicals (e.g. pestizides, fertilizer), breeding, crop production, processing and distribution.
Ultra pure water is mainly used in the semi conductor and pharmaceutical industry. Because of the continuing miniaturilisation in the semi conductor industry, the specifications become more strict every year. Ultra-pure water contains by definition only H20, and H+ and OH- ions in equilibrium. Therefore, ultrapure water conductivity is about 0,054 uS/cm at 25oC, also expressed as resistivity of 18,3 MOhm.
The pharmaceutical market is at the center of personal care, serving to protect public health and improve the quality and span of life. This global market requires treatment technologies to disinfect, measure, control and filter process water and wastewater generated from production.
