R.O. Water Treatment
TreatmentScale and sludge deposits can form on boiler heat transfer surfaces, resulting in efficiency loss and possible failure due to overheating. The most common types of deposits, those formed by calcium salts, are due to the presence of excessive hardness in the boiler feedwater. Other minerals such as magnesium, silicates, and iron can also cause deposits to form, as can iron returning from the corrosion of steam condensate systems— a common cause of boiler deposits. Excessive hardness or iron cannot be effectively treated with chemicals alone. A clean, deposit-free boiler results from maintaining high quality feedwater and, after proper pretreatment, utilizing chemical treatment programs that condition the remaining low levels of contaminants after proper pretreatment.
Reverse osmosis (RO) technology is an increasingly popular method used to provide high-purity water for industrial processes, potable water, waste treatment, water reclamation, and many other applications. In the process of producing high purity water, RO systems concentrate ions and other contaminants. As a result, problems with scaling, deposits, microbial fouling and degradation occur, reducing both the life and performance of the membrane and the RO system.
