Total hardness or calcium and magnesium are hard scale forming minerals that build up on piping, heat exchangers, water heaters, boilers, and any steam equipment. This buildup results in costly repairs, increased energy consumption, plugged heat exchangers and boiler tubes.
Pure Aqua’s water softeners treat the water by removing hardness using resin. The resin replaces the hardness in the water with salt which is regenerated periodically.
The following facilities are...
Water treatment plants are important for producing clean water for many application purposes. For example, water treatment plants are used to produce clean drinking water (home and retail purposes). Water treatment plants are also used to produce clean water for making medicine such as serum; combining clean water with medical liquids. Without water treatment plants water that is used for daily usage (drinking, showering etc.) would be harmful for our health and for the environment. W...
Water softening is a key step in treating hard or raw water. Without this step, minerals and materials in raw water such as calcium, magnesium and various others can build up to damage the water treatment equipment; specifically the membranes used to clean water. Removal of these materials can be achieved by
ion exchange systems.
This process involves calcium and magnesium ions being switched for sodium or potassium ions. Inside the softener, an ion exchange material...
Sand is a very abundant material that is made up of many different finely ground rock and mineral particles. It’s practically everywhere you look. It can be found on most every beach and in every desert of the world. It is versatile and can be used for many different practices and purposes. It is made up of a hodgepodge of different minerals from many places all around the world. Depending on where you are in the world, sand can and will differ in consistency and materials. Winds, riv...
Antiscalant chemicals are used to prevent the scaling & fouling of the RO membranes. Scale may consist of mineral fouling such as calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, barium sulfate, silica, calcium fluoride, and strontium sulfate. The Antiscalant dosing should be done before reaching the
RO membranes to break up sulfate precipitates, calcium carbonate, and other mineral fouling.
Antiscalant chemical is used to process very poor quality feed water at very high rates of re...
Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology, also known as hyper filtration, is used in our Commercial & Industrial Tap and Brackish Water
Reverse Osmosis Systems to purify water by removing salts, contaminants and other impurities. It is also capable of rejecting bacteria, sugars, proteins, particles, dyes, and other constituents that have a molecular weight of greater than 150-250 daltons. These unique systems are the backbone of the water treatment industry.
At our home base in San...
Multi-media water filter systems are ideally suited for use where stringent water quality standards are required or where higher levels of suspended solids are present. These applications can include re-use applications, water pre-treatment applications for reverse osmosis and
deionization systems or as a pre-treatment system prior to disposable bag or cartridge filters.
Multi-media filters remove suspended particles from water and are primarily suited for feed wate...
The idea of industrial Reverse Osmosis (RO) is to use
high-pressure produced from motorized pumps to push water in the opposing
direction of osmotic pressure so that the water source with the higher
concentration of contaminants is forced to pass through the semi-permeable
membrane instead of the water with lower concentration of salinity, or salt
content. This allows reverse osmosis (RO) to be put to use on an industrial
scale, and for many applications.
How does Industrial...
There are mainly two (2) wastewater sources: 1) domestic sewage, and 2) non-sewage. Domestic sewage
includes all wastewater generated by residential communities, public restrooms,
hotels, golf courses, restaurants, schools, hospitals and other health centers.
Non-sewage wastewater entails industrial wastewater, storm water, runoff, water
from swimming pools, car garages, and cleaning centers.
What wastewater is comprised of?
The composition of
The Desalination industry is relatively small; however it is a growing market. While water is plentiful, over 97% is too salty for human consumption. Desalination companies utilize the unlimited supply of seawater and through Reverse Osmosis or distillation, create potable water by removing the salts.
Desalination systems consist of seawater intake (open or beach well), pre-treatment filters (screen and multimedia filters), Reverse Osmosis (RO) membranes and chemical dosing...
