Industrial water filtration systems have become an integral part of almost all large industries and manufacturing units. From industrial HVAC cooling towers to other industries such as automotive, food and beverage, oil& gas etc all have their specific set of water filtration needs.
The importance of water filtration has emerged as this has been seen as the most cost effective way of reducing impurities present in the water, thereby reducing operational costs. Industrial water filtration systems work on cleansing the water of its impurities thus reducing equipment fouling and scaling. Not only does impure water cause equipment problems, it also leads to low thermal efficiency and an increase in energy wastage as a higher flow rate is required when water is contaminated.
Water gets contaminated because of several reasons. Some pollutants are already present in water. Calcium and magnesium present in source water constitute 2% of the existing pollutants. These minerals make the water hard and lead to pipe blockages, damage boilers and heat exchangers.
Other pollutants such as biocides, pollen, algae, silt etc are also collected during industrial operations. Some of the algae growing in cooling tower basins is seen to be extremely toxic. This is hazardous not only for the people who are employed at these sites but also pose as a potential environmental hazard. This waste water which is flushed out during the backwash cycle finds its way into the sewerage system and ultimately drains out into the main water source. It is from this main water source that drinking water is also obtained.
As water filtration needs are industry specific, it is best to get a water testing done by a professional before designing a filtration system. With the help of a professional you will be able to determine the quality of the water available and accordingly select the filter type and size. It is always advised to select a filter capacity of 10% more than what is actually required. By selecting a higher filter capacity and designing the system correctly you take into account upset and overload conditions as well.
When you are choosing the filter you must take into account and investigate the systems reliability, equipment and installation cost, maintenance costs, fluid make-up costs, operation costs and the exact level of filtration that you require.
Amongst the several industrial water filtration systems available in the market, the Automatic Screen filter finds itself to be the most popular. These filters range from the medium to high cost and require very low maintenance. These filters offer a high efficiency flush between 8 to 10 seconds and require low flush water volume. Automatic screen filters can be easily installed even in existing systems. The accompanying control panel of this filter is easy to operate and is capable of initiating a flush cycle either on a timed basis or by a high differential pressure.
Industrial water filtration systems aim at making water re-usable through water and wastewater treatment. As industries utilize 60% of water in industrialized nations, this segment has also become one of the key growth segments in recent times with companies like Siemens and Emmerson being its market leaders.
