Industrial water treatment produces returns on bottom line

Water is a product that is highly costly for farmers and others in the manufacturing sectors. Yet industrial water treatment will help make it much more economical for that critical resource. There are several cost-effective methods of handling industrial water and there are many benefits to benefit from various strategies.Have a look at Greenfield Water Solutions for more info on this.

Reduce costs-Water, Chemicals and Energy

High pressure boiler operators relied on demineralisers to prevent excursions of very strict contaminant limits such as silica and sodium that would cause turbine failure quickly. In the last decade, many have incorporated upstream demineraliser reverse osmosis pre-treatment to greatly increase the cycle time between chemical regenerations, thus saving chemicals and energy. More and more businesses are now realizing that reverse osmosis pre-treatment to low pressure boilers (with or without softening), will increase cycles from 10 to 50, often reducing energy by 60 per cent due to reduced blowdown. These treatments also significantly reduce the use of chemical boilers.

Avoiding Manufacturing Setbacks

Many facilities do have to abide by federal and/or local wastewater treatment legislation. If industrial water treatment is out of control, companies can be fined and adversely affected by publicity. When a production plant unintentionally leads to the presence of pollutants in industrial water pumped into a public sewage system, or a river or lake, there is always the possibility of litigation.

Restrictions on NPDES and POTW are becoming more stringent, and businesses need to be kept updated and have the resources required to meet official guidelines. There are water engineering firms with the skills, facilities, experience, and operational ability to tackle all of these concerns proactively before they become problems. Therefore, contracting with an industrial water treatment services provider will theoretically save a business from financial responsibility and unnecessary and costly downtime.

Infrastructure Alternatives Investments

Some businesses can of course not afford to install sophisticated industrial water treatment systems. Or, they have neither the capacity nor the skills to operate advanced, essential water or wastewater treatment facilities in this world of operating leaner and leaner. Yet that needn’t be an obstacle. There are professional industrial water service providers who can offer a lease-buying program with tax-friendly terms or under a long-term agreement provide a “vendor-owned, vendor-maintained” system. Either avoids the need for capital dollars, as well as the difficulty and time constraints in having approved resources.
