Water Treatment Chemicals
The demand for safe water is on the rise, owing to increasing human needs and industrial activities, which the current supply is unable to cope with. Hence, the speciality chemicals industry uses innovative ways of water treatment in order to make water acceptable for its specific end-use, from drinking, cooking, irrigation and industrial purpose to name a few.
The water treatment methods use four basic processes that include boiler water treatment, cooling water treatment, water purification and treatment of wastewater effluent. The substances that are removed during the water treatment process are suspended solids, viruses, fungi, bacteria, algae, and minerals. The process involves both physical and chemical methods. The chemical used in this process are called water treatment chemicals.
Water treatment chemicals incorporate the use of superior grade of chemicals for boilers, cooling towers and closed circuit systems, wastewater and effluents, RO systems, collectively regarded as processes that aid in making water more acceptable for its desired end use, that may include industrial, drinking, institutional or municipal.
Water treatment chemicals broadly classified into the following:
- Wastewater | Polyelectrolytes for coagulant water treatment: flocculation, sludge de-watering, paper making, clarification, deo settling, dissolved air floatation, etc.
- Chemicals for RO | Water disinfectant, membrane cleaner, antiscalant range that enhance operational efficiency and optimize membrane life expectancy.
- Cooling tower chemicals to keep a check on scaling, bio-fouling issues.
- Boiler chemicals contributing to overall safety of operation of boilers and steam
