Alternative Applications

In my previous article, “Ultrafiltration: A Business Growth Opportunity” (September 2013), I referenced a 2010 BBC research report stating that “the U.S. market for ultrafiltration (UF) technologies was worth $940 million in 2010. It is estimated to be valued at $1.24 billion by 2015.”1 Simply put, the business opportunities for UF are growing rapidly, which could prove extremely profitable for the savvy professional water dealer.

Commercial Complexities

Over the past five years, the topic of rainwater harvesting has become prevalent everywhere we look. Many articles on this subject begin with an introduction about rainwater harvesting not being a new concept because systems have been around since before the ancient Greeks. They then cover the basics, from where water can be captured to its various applications. Storage tanks, pumps and filters are typically mentioned, but sometimes without specific details. This is for good reason: Rainwater harvesting systems, especially commercial-sized ones, can be complex.

A Shiny Example

Brand protection and the production of clean, shiny cans are important in the canning industry. Can corrosion not only negatively impacts a company’s image, but it also can impact the safety of the packaged food. Corrosive cans may cause microleakages, which increase the risk of reinfection after sterilization.

The water used for sterilization must be properly treated so that there is no risk of deposits and corrosion on cans. The chemical products also should protect the sterilizer equipment and cooling system against deposition and corrosion to reduce maintenance.

Diving Into Ozone Treatment

The Winona Family YMCA is located in southeast Minnesota, in a town that is home to approximately 27,000 residents. The 4,300-member athletic center is spread across 78,000 sq ft and hosts programs and classes in badminton, basketball, tennis, aquatics and more.

Built in 1951, the original indoor pool at the Winona YMCA measures 20 by 60 yd. When a new, larger pool was built, the smaller pool became the YMCA’s warm-water pool, used for toddler and senior citizen classes, as well as therapeutic activities.
