Many large industrial will produce their own power and heat through the use of steam or gas-powered turbines.

Steam powered turbines produce electricity for site and the steam generators also send heated steam to the heating system for site.

Reverse osmosis (RO) systems are typically used to purify the water for use as it requires less’blow downs’ of the boiler, reducing cost of energy production and the use of chemicals to descale boilers, turbines and similar equipment.

The condensate returned from site is then filtered with high efficiency particle removal filter cartridges such as Premier Pleat Polypropylene (PPP) or Premier Pleat Glass Fibre (PPG) before being re-used. At these sites there is also the requirement to measure chemical levels using sensing probes at various stages, these probes are usually protected with a simple spun-bonded cartridge.

Stages of Filtration & Water Treatment

Particle Removal

Prevents debris, scale flakes, dirt and particle build up in pipework, tanks, equipment and where present, premature blinding of filtration stages further along the cascade.

Particle Removal - Fileder Filter Systems

Chlorine and Organics Removal

Helps the taste and odour of the liquid and where present, protects RO membranes from chemical attack.

RO Water Production

Very pure water is produced using reverse osmosis membranes to separate the majority of salts and ions from the feed water and sending the salts and ions to waste or re-circulation.
