Water Research Applications

  • Water treatment research for refining and petrochemicals industry

    Refining processes like distillation use high quality steam that must be generated from ultrapure water. Advanced wastewater treatment technologies will help the industry meet tough regulations concerning hazardous waste products from process operations. As the industry expands into water-scarce areas in India, China and the Middle East, marginal sources can help meet the demand for water. Desalination and reuse technologies will secure a reliable source of water and help the industry manage its water impact. Water technology suppliers have the opportunity to tap into a market worth $768 billion.

  • Water treatment research for mining industry

    Securing a reliable supply of water for extraction, handling and transportation is vitally important to mining companies looking to expand their operations. These companies will go to great lengths to meet this need, running pipelines hundreds of miles long from desalination plants on the coast and treating wastewater that is conventional held in tailings ponds. Wastewater treatment technologies can recover saleable metal that might otherwise be lost and prevent environmental contamination from highly acidic effluent streams. Developing the infrastructure and technologies to meet these challenges in the mining industry is driving a market worth $11.9 billon.

  • Pure drinking water solutions for day care & preschools

    CHILDREN ARE ESPECIALLY SENSITIVE TO TOXINS IN WATER. Children are much more sensitive to chemicals in the water supply than adults. A child’s brain continues to grow after birth, and this development process is very sensitive to chemical interference. Research now suggests that a single small dose of a chemical on a critical day of development can cause permanent learning disorders*. Now you can show parents that your preschool is the market leader in protecting their children from toxins that could be present in your tap water. Our premium water distillers allow you to provide your children with fresh, distilled water, the safest drinking and cooking water available.

  • Water treatment research for pulp and paper industry

    Historically the pulp and paper industry has had little need for desalination and reuse – not least because the majority of production is located near water sources. Four things are changing this state of affairs: The move towards recycling means that production in mills located in “urban forest” areas is rising. These facilities face higher water costs than green forest located mills, and have a greater interest in water efficiency. The fastest growing market for pulp and paper is in China, where raw water sources are both limited and impaired, and water technologies which can address these challenges are at a premium.

  • Smoke generator device for wind tunnel studies

    For producing a point source of smoke in a wind tunnel environment, Concept have the Aerotech smoke system, with a heated tip on the end of a thin wand. For seeding a wind tunnel for LDA/PVA type work the ViCount 1300 system is normally supplied. This can produce either water or oil based smoke with minor re-programming, so it is a very adaptable solution. The ViCount is such a versatile machine, that its capable of everything from seeding the world’s largest wind tunnel (NASA AMES) through to producing fine smoke rakes in educational wind tunnels.

  • Water treatment research for pharmaceuticals industry

    Ultrapure water is essential in the pharmaceutical industry as it provides a high purity solution free of biological contamination for use in medical products. Supplying these systems is market worth 714 million. There is a shift in the industry as manufacturers of low-cost generic drugs take advantage of the expiry of patents on blockbuster drugs. Water technology suppliers need to be able to supply a reliable system to fit the increasingly tightened budgets within the industry. Developing markets like India, Brazil and China are more attractive with outsourced manufacturing and government efforts to boost domestic production.

  • Water treatment research for oil and gas industry

    The upstream oil and gas industry is increasingly becoming a water management industry. Globally, three barrels of water is extracted for every one barrel of oil produced. With effective management, this produced water can become a source of value, as disposal options become limited and environmental regulations tighten. New water treatment technologies will allow this water to be reused in waterflooding, enhanced oil recovery and hydraulic fracturing operations, in a market worth $5.2 billion in 2014. Managing the water used and extracted from unconventional resources, such as shale gas, tight oil, coalbed methane, heavy oil, and oil from ultra-deepwater offshore fields, will be a fast growing segment of this market. This section shows you in detail the different opportunities and strategies for these resources.

  • Water treatment research for food and beverage industry

    Direct reuse of wastewater in the product is not on the menu in the food and beverage industry, but the reuse of water for other purposes (e.g. washing) is now a priority. Most major F&B companies have made commitments to reduce their water consumption per unit of product, and reuse is an important part of the strategy for achieving this. Furthermore much of the growth of the industry is in emerging markets which typically have more limited, lower quality water resources than developed countries, creating water treatment challenges. In developed markets, emerging concerns about pharmaceutical by-products and other trace contaminants making their way into the product have lead to greater use of desalination technologies on the process water side. Value from waste propositions such as energy recovery, water reuse (not within the product) and materials recovery ensure that investment in water technology benefits the bottom line.

  • Water filtration with UV purification for education

    Waterlogic POU bottleless water dispensers are an essential tool for schools. At school, when you’re promoting a healthy lifestyle and pushing alternatives to sugary drinks, Waterlogic POU bottleless water dispenser systems are an essential tool. Drinking plenty of clean, healthy water keeps students alert and functioning at their highest level. And now, water at school has never been easier. Waterlogic has developed a bottleless water cooler (or bottleless water dispenser system) that serves up the purest and best-tasting water around. Students will be lining up to fill their cups. The good news about water at school from a bottleless water dispenser is that our high-capacity machines can stand up to the demands of the busiest campus and the rigors of school and university life.

  • Water treatment research for microelectronics industry

    As devices get smaller and the fabrication plants get larger, the purity of the water required for ultrapure water systems increases. In terms of water reuse, the industry has relatively conservative attitudes towards recycling water for ultrapure water applications, but wastewater is treated and reused for cooling and other less critical purposes. Besides semiconductors, two other silicon-based sectors of the microelectronics industry need large volumes of highly pure water: flat panel displays (FPD) and photovoltaics (PV). Although, both sectors are in the process of maturing we anticipate that the increasing complexity of FPD and PV devices will create demand for even higher purity water.

  • Smoke generator device for PPV & impulse ventilation testing

    When water-based artificial smoke is introduced into a rapidly moving air stream, the particles that make up the artificial smoke evaporate much more quickly than they do in a static environment. So if you are looking to produce an artificial smoke that better represents the smoke created by a real fire, we would always recommend the ViCount smoke generator, the smoke from which is virtually unaffected by fast moving air streams. Used world wide PPV training centre`s and to test impulse ventilation systems. A Home Office report into PPV (Positive pressure Ventilation) by the Head of the Fire Experimental Unit, Fire Research & Development concluded that the concept behind the technique of PPV was relatively easy to understand and the equipment simple to operate, but stressed the need for extensive training.
