Many industries discharge a large amount of waste water and waste liquid, and the discharged liquid contains the products and materials of industrial production.

If it is not treated, it will eliminate the situation that will cause environmental pollution, especially water pollution.

The Benefits of Filtration in Industrial Applications

The Benefits of Filtration in Industrial Applications

Filtration is essential and an important part of many processes in industrial applications such as food and beverage, pharmaceutical, water treatment, oil, and gas.

The benefits that filtration brings to these industrial applications are:

  • Reduce wastewater costs and extend machine lifespan

Filtration prevents harmful contaminants from entering the equipment, enabling the normal operation to reduce wear and tear on machinery and equipment and protect the service life of machinery and equipment.

  • Reduce maintenance costs

When contaminants increase in water, scaling and corrosion problems can directly lead to reduced equipment efficiency.

Machines and equipment that filter out harmful substances entering equipment so that they operate at their best will increase productivity and reduce downtime. Therefore less maintenance costs are required.

Types of Industrial Filtration Systems

All industrial filtration systems are designed to remove most contaminants present in water. Which system is suitable for which application? The most important thing is to understand what each system does and what impurities each system can remove.

Basket Strainers

Pipeline/Basket Strainers

This filter is a closed water filtration system that collects contaminants using a removable mesh or perforated plate mesh (a mesh typically removes as low as 200 mesh or 75 microns). When the screen becomes full, it needs to be cleaned.

The system also collects the desired material for later use in the production process while effectively protecting instruments, pumps, compressors, steam traps, and other equipment from damage caused by contaminants.

Advantage:

  • The screen can be reused
  • Extend equipment life
  • Can withstand heavy loads without failure

Inadequate: Filter size is limited

Ultraviolet Purification

Automatic Self-Cleaning Strainers

A self-cleaning filter is a filter that uses system pressure to self-clean. A rigid cylindrical screen filters particles out of the water source.

It traps debris until the pressure in the system rises, then opens the flush valve to clean out contaminants.These filters are multifunctional and capable of providing continuous flow.

Advantage:

  • Uninterrupted cleaning cycle
  • continuous flow
  • Can remove debris from the water in a variety of applications

Inadequate: High input cost

Bag Filter

Ultraviolet Purification

Ultraviolet disinfection has been applied to many places and places.

UV purification here is when ultraviolet light sterilizes by penetrating the microorganism and destroying its DNA, making her inactive and unable to reproduce by destroying the DNA of the microorganism.

Microorganisms that are inactive and unable to reproduce will die and will not contaminate the water source.

Advantage:

  • Eco-friendly
  • natural
  • effective
  • safe and chemical-free
  • Easy to manage
  • fast
  • low energy consumption

Inadequate:

  • Ultraviolet rays can only destroy microorganisms in water
  • Cannot remove artificial substances such as heavy metals
  • petroleum
  • or pharmaceuticals
Automatic Self-Cleaning Strainers

Bag Filter

A bag filter acts as a coffee filter. The filter through which the liquid flows is a porous material with small holes that can still trap solid particles.

Bag filters are recommended for applications with relatively high flow rates, as they must be under pressure to function properly.

Advantage:

  • Reusable and less waste than cartridge filters
  • Wider application

Inadequate: Enough stress to work properly

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis

During normal osmosis, the solvent moves from the low concentration area through the membrane to the high concentration area, thereby achieving the removal of all contaminants in the water.

Advantage:

  • RO systems are durable and easy to maintain
  • Can remove all types of contaminants

Inadequate:

  • RO is slower than a water filter
  • High wastewater rate in RO system
Separators

Media Filter

The water passes through several layers of different materials, and any large contaminants along the way are captured.

Advantage:

  • Long lifespan
  • Wide application
  • Price concessions

Inadequate: Limited filtering capacity

Coolant Filtration Systems

Separators

The system is unique in that there are no moving parts or screens, so there is no pressure loss, no maintenance, and regular opening of the flush valve to clean out contaminants.

Advantage:

  • low maintenance
  • No filter media
  • no pressure loss

Inadequate:

  • Not available for every application
  • Mainly used to separate large particles
Reduce maintenance costs

Coolant Filtration Systems

This system is critical to keeping the coolant free of solids and impurities by removing chips and chips created during machining. It can also help control the pH, flow rate and boiling point of the coolant.

Advantage:

  • Lower maintenance costs for parts
  • slow down bacterial growth

Inadequate:High input cost

How to choose a suitable industrial water filtration system

How to choose a suitable industrial water filtration system?

There are countless industries that can benefit from a water filtration system. If your industrial facility needs to use a lot of water to operate, a water filtration system may be in your favor.

The industries that benefit the most from industrial water filtration systems include the food and beverage industry, plastics industry, medical industry, biotechnology industry, chemical production industry, automotive industry, oil and gas production industry, paper industry, electronic manufacturing.

There are several factors to consider when considering purchasing a water filtration system. For example, It is important to understand the capabilities of each system, which will help you determine if the system you choose is right for your facility.

Each system can eliminate certain types and amounts of contaminants. If your primary desire is to remove calcium deposits, make sure the filtration system you choose can meet this need.

For low flow rates, you will need to choose a more advanced filtration system. If you need to filter hundreds of thousands of gallons of water each day, an industrial water filtration system is likely right for your business.

Before making your choice, it is recommended that you ask if the system you are interested in will fit your budget.

If you find that your facility doesn’t require an industrial water filtration system, you might consider chemical water treatment, which is relatively inexpensive and doesn’t require much equipment.
