Proper water treatment should always be top of mind for industrial companies. Water might be used and recycled for a variety of processes, such as manufacturing, and must be properly treated to remove impurities. This not only ensures that the water is well suited for its intended purpose, but also that your company is in compliance with local regulations regarding water discharge.

Beyond treating water used in manufacturing and other processes, industrial companies also need to have a comprehensive water treatment plan in place for their facilities. From boilers and cooling towers to potable water systems, water plays a key role in everyday operations. So, why do industrial companies need water treatment systems?

Preventing Scale & Corrosion

Water that is introduced to cooling towers, boilers, and potable water systems is rife with impurities that, if left unaddressed, can cause a variety of problems. Most commonly, untreated water can result in scale and corrosion that can cause soaring energy and water usage costs and, eventually, damage your equipment. An industrial water treatment program can help you avoid unexpected costs.

Health & Safety

Untreated water in industrial or commercial facilities can become a breeding ground for microorganisms, resulting in biological fouling and unsafe conditions. For example, Legionella can enter through cooling towers that are open to the atmosphere and proliferate in potable water systems, possibly causing illness.
