What Is Water Demineralization?

December 11, 2019

Demineralization is something many industries rely on as part of their water purification process. A type of purification, demineralization is more specifically characterized by ion exchange, often also called deionization. It’s a relatively simple process that yields big results—especially for applications that demand the cleanest water, free of unwanted atomic elements. Deionization isn’t possible without the right equipment, which is why most commercial and industrial water treatment applications have a strong relationship with a demineralizer supplier—someone who can provide them with filtration equipment and other ion exchange materials. What’s removed? During water demineralization, all types of atomic elements are removed... View Article

How Water Purification for Power Generation Is Evolving

November 27, 2019

Water purification is something most people are familiar with in a small capacity. You might have a deionization system in your basement or use activated carbon filters for your tap water, for example. Now, imagine water purification on a much larger scale—like for power generation. A hydroelectric plant is simply too big for these everyday household systems—yet the need for purification is still there. It begs the question: how do these facilities purify the much-needed water they use on an everyday basis? The answer is complex, and it’s critical to understand why water purification is important to begin with. Why... View Article

How Does Ion Exchange Resin Work, and How Long Does It Last?

November 5, 2019

If you’re investigating various types of water treatment strategies, you might consider the use of ion exchange resin. Ion exchange is a chemical reaction process in which dissolved ions get removed from a solution and then get replaced with other ions that have a similar (or the exact same) electrical charge. The ion exchange resin, then, is the medium used to facilitate that ion exchange reaction. This resin is made out of polymers that create a system of hydrocarbons. As a general rule, you can expect an ion exchange resin to last about 10 to 15 years in water treatment... View Article

The Benefits of Using Activated Carbon Water Filters

October 22, 2019

Clean water plays a vital role in our everyday lives. From the water we drink, to the water we use for cleaning our dishes and our clothes, to the water used in medical, industrial and other commercial facilities, it is crucial to have water that is sufficiently clean and does not deliver any adverse effects. Activated carbon filters are perhaps the most common kind of water filtration system used in industrial settings. They are natural and come with many health benefits for users. Here are just a few examples of some of those benefits: It only removes the substances you... View Article

Importance of Understanding Water Treatment Processes

October 12, 2019

It is nearly impossible to guarantee all public water systems produce safe water. They collect both surface and groundwater, and those sources are never completely free of contaminants. This is why home- and business-based water treatment systems are popular. Water filtration creates safer water and addresses the contaminants that may be affecting taste and safety. Here is why you should understand water treatment processes and consider investing in a filtration system: Contamination is common—and easy: When water is treated in public systems, it is vulnerable to contamination through all stages of its journey. Before collection, it is found in natural... View Article
