WesTech engineers water and wastewater process solutions for the power industry including water pretreatment, cooling tower makeup water treatment, and ultrafiltration pretreatment to reverse osmosis, guaranteeing SDIs less than 3. ISO 9001:2008 certified and turnkey experienced, WesTech stands ready to meet deadlines and assure minimal downtime with focused service.
Deposits in water systems, especially in heat exchangers, result in a significant heat transfer reduction, in low efficiency and a loss of cooling capacity. Some systems, after long operational periods without any water conditioning or with inadequate treatment, need cleaning. Therefore Kurita Water Solutions proposes acidic, alkaline and neutral cleaners to remove deposits, scale, fouling, dirt, grime or impurities.
High-technology industries use ultrapure water in their manufacturing. SnowPure’s components help sell pure water systems to semiconductor, electronics, solar panel, hard disk drive, glass lens, and flat panel display industries. These industries often require “ppt” (part-per-trillion) level impurities. EDI and UV-TOC are key technologies in these systems.
Oil sands or, more technically, bituminous sands, are a type of unconventional petroleum deposit. Oil sands represent a vast wealth of energy reserves for the world rivaling traditional sources in quality, availability and the ability to meet the world`s needs for many years into the future. The technologies for extraction of this resource are increasingly efficient, and WesTech has worked with several companies on the leading edge of these efforts and is a ready partner for new projects and plant upgrades.
Cold Lime Softening: Hard water is water that has high mineral content. The name comes from the hard scale that forms when this water is boiled. It is not harmful to human health, but in the industrial setting it causes costly breakdowns in boilers, cooling towers, and other water handling equipment. The divalent cations Mg and Ca are the most frequently found minerals causing hard water. These ions enter water supplies by leaching from minerals in underground aquifers.
Ion exchange is an exchange of ions between two electrolytes or between an electrolyte solution and a complex. In most cases the term is used to denote the processes of purification, separation, and decontamination of aqueous and other ion-containing solutions with solid polymeric or mineralic ‘ion exchangers’.
There are potential health effects caused due to high TDS content in drinking water. The hard water will taste bitter, salty, or metallic and may have unpleasant odors. High TDS water is less thirst quenching. High TDS interferes with the taste of foods and beverages, and makes them less desirable to consume. Some of the individual mineral salts such as Nitrates, Sodium, Sulfates, Barium, Cadmium, Copper and Fluoride that make up TDS pose a variety of health hazards such as causing stiffness in the joints,...
We have entered into an era where saving the resources, protecting the environment, and making the processes cost-effective is more important than ever. Hence, today’s power stations have to be super-optimized for cost and efficiency. They should occupy a
Our Filters are Highly Resistant to Corrosivity. Reverse osmosis is one of the most widely applied desalination technologies. Previous to the process of separtion of water from salt and minerals, seawater or brackish wter requires the elimination of large size particles in order to assure a good performance of reverse osmosis membranes. Our sand filters facilitate the removal of these suspended solids to avoid membrane fouling. In addition, after reverse osmosis process, water has to be remineralized through...
KISTERS has developed a specific version of WISKI with unique benefits for those monitoring Alpine Regions. Some of its advanced features include specialized calculations for measuring precipitation, snow, sediment transport and water balances in catchments.
For Kinetico, that realization extends to the importance of specialized water treatment solutions customized for specific, wide-ranging applications. Our filters and softeners come in a variety of configurations designed to produce safe, clean drinking water and remove contaminants and hardness. This greatly improves overall water quality and protects expensive (and essential) boilers, laundry facilities and commercial kitchen appliances. To convert first-time guests into repeat customers and to safeguard your...
In water treatment the main processes used are demineralization, softening, ion exchange, gravity and pressure filtration. Trislot wedge wire screens are used in these processes to collect or distribute the treated liquid, to retain the treatment media, to filter solids. The main advantages compared to perforated plate, wire mesh or other filtration media are: high efficiency, long service life, flexible design, low maintenance.
Troy Acoustics and its personnel have been involved in the Broadcasting, Movie and Recording industries for well over thirty years. Troy Acoustics has designed and installed acoustical treatments for dozens of facilities, for both new and updating purposes. The Troy System products, designs and installation techniques have provided quality, noise free, environments for all types of facilities where original programming is produced, enhanced or modified.
Zorba’s Fine Greek Restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has saved money on water, maintenance and salt by replacing its water softener with the computerized, electronic, water-conditioner Scalewatcher® from Scalewatcher North America. Three months after installing Scalewatcher, the restaurant was able to remove its bulky water softener but still retain the benefits of soft water.
Owned and run by Spiros and Marina Counelis, Zorba’s is not only located in a hard water area but also in a region where water...
Groundwater is in contact with soil and rock minerals. Significant amounts of the minerals are dissolved in the groundwater. Elevated water hardness is the result of the water interaction and partial dissolution of carbonate minerals.
Scale formation is a crystallisation process. Crystals are a highly organised arrangement of molecules. The determining circumstances for a successful crystallisation event include concentration, temperature, pressure and chemical environment. Suitable conditions for the formation...
Non-chemical water treatment should be on the agenda for any sustainability program. Hard water results in increased consumption of energy and water, increased dependence on chemicals and premature equipment failure.
Scaling in Paper Mills caused by hard water is an expensive and difficult problem. Vacuum Pumps, Sprays and heat exchangers all suffer from this phenomenon. Fluid Dynamics MagCAT has a non chemical proven method of preventing scaling Clients include Kimberly Clark, Alier Paper, Papertech.
Roper’s Restaurant, a cowboy themed restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico has replaced its water softener with the computerized, electronic, water-conditioner Scalewatcher from Scalewatcher North America. By installing Scalewatcher, the restaurant has avoided paying the $500 quoted for replacement media for its old water softener and also saved hundreds of dollars a year in salt and water thereby providing Roper’s with a short-term payback on the unit.
Roper’s Restaurant, part of Outwest Eateries LLC dba, is...
Problem: Build-up on grates, skids, hooks, and carriers reduces paint shop efficiency and often leads to a below-quality finish. Chemical stripping and incineration are effective, but are hard on operating personnel and expose them to hazards.
