  • Effect of water hardness and pipe material on enhanced disinfection with UV light and chlorine

    Limited studies have been conducted to evaluate synergistic benefits between disinfectants, although promise has been shown between ultraviolet (UV) light and chlorine-based disinfectants. This research aimed to determine drinking water quality factors that affect potential for enhanced removal of heterotrophic bacteria due to synergy between UV light and free chlorine. An additional goal was to ...

  • Things to Consider When Choosing A Hard Floor Cleaner

    A hard floor cleaner can be a good investment for any commercial or industrial area, provided you opt for the right kind of machine. Carpet cleaning is given a lot of focus and attention As compared to hard flooring, which sometimes gets the “step-daughterly” treatment, since these surfaces are relatively easy to wipe. If a spill can be wiped off the surface, there is a common ...

  • Scaling caused by hard water is one of nature’s expensive phenomenons.. But there is a totally natural solution

    Scaling caused by hard water is an expensive problem .. not only do significant financial costs arise trying to prevent it or  removing the effects of it but in addition there is a huge environmental; cost to many of the treatments used against it.! Water softeners put so much salt into the environment that they are now being banned in some parts of the USA. Chemicals, as we all know, are ...

  • Water Treatment Equipment Markets in China

    China’s demand for Water Treatment Equipment has grown at a fast pace in the past decade. In the next decade, both production and demand will continue to grow. The Chinese economy maintains a high speed growth which has been stimulated by the consecutive increases of industrial output, import & export, consumer consumption and capital investment for over two decades. This new study ...

  • The mystery of electronic water treatment unveiled

    The problems of scale are well known to those living and working in "hard" water areas. Scale is the undesirable consequence of water supplies becoming super-saturated with dissolved minerals.  These problems are of greater significance if found in industrial water systems and commercial buildings. Scaling problems commonly occur, even in "soft" water areas, when a fluid stream is ...

  • It is the law (part L building regs) that in hard water areas a scale preventer must be placed before any new boiler installed

    Not many people know that .. to coin a famous phrase, but it reflects the increased cost of energy usage arising as a result of scaling caused by hard water. Traditionally water softeners’ might have been used for this purpose but there are increasing environmental concerns about the use of water softeners .. in parts of California they are now banned. Fluid Dynamics is the UK’s ...

  • Catalyst-Based Non-Chemical Water Treatment

    Catalyst-Based Device Reduces Calcite Buildup, Requires Minimal Maintenance According to the US Geological Survey, more than 85 percent of the United States has hard water.1 In plumbing, hard water leaves calcite deposits that restrict water flow by occluding pipes. In water heaters, calcite coats heating elements, causing them to overheat and eventually fail. Standard approaches to ...

  • Bedrichov Water Treatment Plant - Case Study

    By replacing the filter sand with Filtralite, Bedrichov Water Treatment Plant reduced energy cost by 75 %, doubled the production capacity of each filter and today delivers the best drinking water ever Time is running out The use of sand for water filtering is most likely the oldest method in history for treating water for consumption. Sand is still today widely used ...

  • Preventing Rust Formation with Electronic Water Treatment

    The growing demand for water for industrial applications, power production and water supply has resulted in an increasing need for water treatment. The water used in industry comes from a range of sources such as rivers, lakes, wells and oceans and contains dissolved and suspended solids.  In addition the industrial world has to reuse water which in turn causes it to be highly concentrated ...

  • Chiller & cooling tower water treatment - case study

    Overview There are three main challenges for treating cooling water in both open and closed loops: scale, corrosion and biogrowth. Water System Challenges The traditional chemical treatment calls for chemicals to deal with these challenges. When scale is present, the condenser’s ability to transfer heat is reduced, causing higher pressure and higher ...

  • Electronic Water Treatment Reduces Fouling In Reverse Osmosis

    Reverse Osmosis (RO) is used in processes requiring high-quality, purified water, such in semi-conductor processing or biochemical applications and can be used to treat boiler feed water, industrial wastewater or process water. A water purification technique, it reduces the quantity of dissolved solids in solution. RO uses waterline pressure together with energy consuming pressurizing pumps that ...

  • ELECTRONIC WATER TREATMENT REDUCES FOULING AND CORROSION IN PIPELINES

    Increasing pressure loss in the pipeline is often caused by scale corrosion or product fouling of the internal surfaces. This condition slows transmission and distribution capacity, and can require more than just routine maintenance if it remains unaddressed. Interior corrosion, fouling and leakage in pipeline systems will adversely impact bottom-line operations. ...

  • Electronic water treatment reduces fouling in heat exchangers

    The deposition of material on heat transfer surfaces is called fouling which significantly impacts on the thermal and mechanical performance of heat exchangers. Fouling increases the overall thermal resistance and lowers the overall heat transfer coefficient of heat exchangers as well as impeding fluid flow, accelerating corrosion and increasing pressure drop across the heat ...

  • On-site water treatment service cuts costs

    After more than two decades in the global oilpatch, Stuart Snydmiller thinks the future for his startup firm is in water, not petroleum. Or at least waste water.Tangent Environmental Technologies, owned with brother Jason and others, has taken existing technologies and put them together into a package that offers huge savings for drilling firms and any industrial operation that needs to process, ...
