Industrial Water Filter

What is Industrial Water Filter?

Industrial water filter is a kind of equipment. The water filtration system removes impurities from the original raw water source. The system is installed in place on the production line to provide the correct quality of water. When water passes through the system, the membrane traps and removes impurities. Reverse osmosis can remove 99.9% of bacteria and is often used in the design of pharmaceutical pure water systems.

Industrial filters can remove all kinds of impurities. These materials include particles, metals, chemicals, sediments, odors, minerals and other impurities. When the contaminants in the water increase, scaling problems and corrosion may occur, which can reduce the efficiency of your equipment. Untreated water may also eventually damage some of your industrial equipment, and the maintenance cost of this equipment may be very high. When you use the correct industrial water filtration system, minerals and solids in the water should be effectively removed.

Although some of these problems can be solved by using chemical water treatment, a water filtration system is usually required to completely remove pollutants in the water. If you want equipment in an industrial facility to continue to operate efficiently, you may need a water filtration system.

How Do Industrial Water Filters Work?

Industrial water filters work by removing particles from water or wastewater streams. For different applications, it has different requirements for the filter cartridge and filter housings, such as design, material and size, etc.

A typical water treatment system will include some or all of the following filter elements:

Media Filter

The raw water is passed through the media t filter, and then all suspended particles are removed.

Activated Carbon Filter

chlorine and other organic chemicals and unpleasant smell are removed by activated carbon filters.

RO System

Here all the dissolved impurities such as heavy metals are removed after RO.

UV Disinfection

Due to the high-intensity UV rays, all the harmful microorganisms are killed.

What are the Benefits of Using Industrial Water Filters?

Water filtration is the process of removing or reducing the concentration of particulate matter from contaminated water. Including suspended particles, parasites, bacteria, algae and fungi. Water filtration can treat other undesirable chemical and biological pollutants. It is widely used in the drinking, medical and pharmaceutical industries.

So what is the purpose of filtration, and why is filtration important for industrial applications?

The most common uses for filtration include:

  • Protecting Equipment from Ingesting Harmful Contaminants
  • Removing Contaminants to Purify air and gas streams
  • Protecting Personnel and the Work Environment
  • Separating and Isolating Desirable Product from the Air Stream
