What does Industrial Water Treatment do?

Industrial water treatment is needed when water is used for industrial purposes, such as for the production of goods or when it is used in the chemical industry. Industrial water treatment facilities reduce the number of impurities in the water and ensure that the water is of high quality. This article will explore further into industrial water treatment and why it’s essential.

Industrial wastewater treatment describes the processes used for treating wastewater that’s produced by industries as an undesirable by-product. After treatment, the treated wastewater are often reused or discharged to a sanitary sewer or to a surface water within the environment.

Most industrial processes, like petroleum refineries and chemical plants have onsite facilities to treat their wastewaters so that pollutant concentrations in the treated effluent meet requirements for wastewater disposal into sewers, rivers, lakes, or seas. Where municipal sewage treatment plants are unavailable, have insufficient capacity, or cannot adequately treat certain industrial wastewaters, industrial effluent treatment plants are necessary.

Wastewater is produced by almost every industry. The recent trend has been to reduce such production or recycle treated wastewater within the manufacturing process. Battery production, electrical power plants, pulp and paper industry, and also the food industry are all sources of industrial wastewater.

An industrial water treatment system treats water so it’s more appropriate for a given use, wither for consumption, manufacturing, perhaps even disposal. That said each system will vary depending on the facility’s needs and many of the technologies that structure these systems can be similar in general. Some of the most needed industrial water treatments typically include:

  • Raw water treatment system
  • Boiler feed water treatment system
  • Cooling tower water treatment system
  • Wastewater treatment system

The technologies selected and in what order they appear in each water treatment system will vary depending on the contaminants that need to be removed, however it’s possible to narrow down what you may see in these four common industrial treatment systems

HSE engineers and technicians are well experienced in the design, supply and installation of all kinds of water treatment plants and equipments.
