For a long time, the commercial and industrial (C&I) markets have been accepted as one sector of the water industry. Although considered different from such other markets as residential, agricultural and wastewater, there is a large murky area when being separated from each other.
With the recent proposals to create standards for the C&I markets comes the question of whether C&I should continue as one sector or be severed into separate entities. If a separation is in order, should it be determined by the application, flow rate or size of the equipment?
The membrane processing technologies of microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF), nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO) are widely used to separate suspended and dissolved materials from water solutions in numerous industrial, medical and drinking water applications.
As consumer awareness grows in regard to the quality of water consumed every day from the numerous well water systems across America, the process that is gaining the most attention is that of disinfection.
Granular activated carbon (GAC) is commonly used for removing organic constituents and residual disinfectants in water supplies. Activated carbon is a favored water treatment technique because of its multifunctional nature and the fact that it adds nothing detrimental to the treated water.
The increasingly broad range of requirements for water quality has motivated the water treatment industry to refine existing techniques, combine methods and explore new water purification technologies including desalination.
A PEP SMF-FG-24 media filter from Process Efficiency Products, Inc., was installed on the remote sump to reduce biocide costs at the dairy.
Filtration is an important part of most water treatment systems. Filters range from simple cartridge systems to large commercial/industrial multi-tank systems, not to mention the large municipal systems that filter drinking water.
A discussion of filter housings.
One Hawaiian hotel was able to quickly fix a filter problem that was turning its tropical ponds into a milky and murky mess.
Cellulose acetate membranes serve as the under-the-sink choice for a host of reasons.The nation's water systems are increasingly cited for causing illness due to water-borne bacteria and organisms, creating distrust in the quality of our domestic tap water. At the same time, business opportunities for water treatment vendors are thriving due to the increasing demand in purified water.
