Industrial Filtration Design & Selection

Industrial water treatment can be classified by the following categories (not including wastewater treatment, which is a separate topic):

  • Process water treatment;
  • Boiler water treatment; and
  • Cooling water treatment.

Water treatment is used to optimize most water-based industrial processes, including heating, cooling, processing, cleaning and rinsing, so that operating costs and risks are reduced.

Fishing for Filtration

When you think about all of the cargo flying in and out of an airport on a daily basis, passengers’ luggage and ordinary mailed packages might come to mind—but certainly one of the last things you might consider is tropical fish.

At Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), fish transport is part of everyday business, thanks, in part, to Sea Dwelling Creatures, a marine fish wholesaler located in Los Angeles. The company, owned by brothers Scott and Brad Cohen, ships 700 to 800 boxes of fish per day, each containing up to 20 fish.
