cool, clear water is the life force in manufacturing operations. It cools, cleans, and can be counted
on to run pure and steady - unless it becomes
contaminated with dirt and other pollutants, in which
case it can gum up a system, increase the friction losses and induce erosion corrosion & wasting energy
by increasing the demand for a higher flow rate to
offset the lost capacity due to scaling, impede operations,lowering the thermal efficiency of the system and even impair the quality of the products being made.Water filtration is one of the most effective and least expensive ways to solve equipment fouling
and scaling problems caused by dirty water.
Heat exchangers, molds,pipes, tubing, sensors, monitors, and other parts become fouled when dirt particles in the water settle out on warm surfaces.
Calcium and magnesium are the bonding
elements that cement the dirt onto the equipment.
Chemical analysis shows that the calcium and magnesium are less than 2%, while the rest is made up of airborne particles, rust, sand, biological organisms,
and other contaminants.
