All About Industrial Water Filtration

March 10, 2022

It may not seem like something that could wreak havoc on your powerful industrial equipment, but water that is left unfiltered has the potential to corrode expensive machinery or cause fouling issues down the road.

How can you prevent scored bearings and shafts, corroded piping or foul boilers and improve your heat efficiency? Install a comprehensive industrial water filtration system. It’ll take care of any solids and minerals in your water that have the potential to build up and disrupt your work.

While some water damage can be prevented through chemical water treatment, physical filtration is the only way to completely remove the particles that could cause major problems in your equipment.

Aside from preventing damage, what other reasons might you consider installing an industrial water filter? What methods of water filtration are available?

Read on to learn all you need to know to find the right industrial process water filtration systems for your purposes.

Benefits of industrial water filtration

Whether you work in plastics, oil, chemical production, the medical field or another industry altogether, water is likely an essential part of your operation. By installing a top-notch industrial water filtration system, you ensure that the water you’re using is free from any harmful impurities and is able to keep your facility running smoothly.

Here are some of the benefits you’ll reap from using an industrial water filtration system in your facility:

  • Reduction of solids in water: Many industries produce high levels of particles and turbidity in their water just through daily operations. An industrial water filtration system alleviates some of that burden before it can cause problems.
  • Reduction of contaminants: Depending on the properties of your water filtration system, you could be removing contaminants like trace metals, ammonia and pollutants from your water in addition to solids and turbidity.
  • Decreased environmental impact: By ensuring the water used in your facility is clear of solids and harmful contaminants, you lower the negative impact of your work on the environment.
  • Improved treatment efficiency: When used to supplement other water treatment systems, a water filtration unit can be used as either a pretreatment or a polishing phase. The result, in either case, is an increase in the overall treatment capabilities of your facility.
  • Extended equipment lifespan: By preventing buildup and corrosion before it begins, you’ll keep your equipment running smoothly longer.
  • Save money: If you’re avoiding buildup and damage, you save money on service and maintenance costs—not to mention spending money less often to replace broken equipment.
