Industrial productivity does not only depend on the output but also on the efficiency of equipment that should support the efforts in delivering higher output. Industrial water quality is a very critical factor that contributes to equipment efficiency. The minerals in water that the equipment uses can cause build-up within the pipelines and inside the equipment that reduces its effectiveness. Not only the output suffers but also the cost of production goes up and decreases the service life of the equipment that all add up to reduced profit
To mitigate the adverse effects of water used in industry, industry captains advice installing water conditioners. It enhances equipment longevity and boosts efficiency that translates into higher productivity and more profit. Water conditioners are nothing but commercial water treatment
plants that provide clean and mineral-free water that does a lot of good for equipment health.
Hard water is bad
is a measurement of the compounds in water that aid scale formation. The unit of measurement is ppm of particles per million, grains per gallon (gpg) and milligrams per liter (mg/l). Most water problems occur due to dissolved salts of calcium and magnesium, but many other metals like iron, copper, aluminum, and lead can also be present. Calcium and magnesium are most rampant because of water flowing through chalk and limestone that contains calcium carbonates and magnesium. Water hardness can create problems because the minerals being sparsely soluble stick to the walls of equipment and pipelines in the form of scale, especially when heated because the solubility of the minerals decreases further. Scale build-up inside equipment drastically reduces its operational efficiency. It can be quite costly to clean the equipment by keeping it idle for some time besides decreasing productivity.
Iron in water is also bad
Well water contains not only the minerals but also other contaminants exceptionally high levels of iron in municipal water is a concern. Iron in water cause discoloration of the surfaces when it comes in contact and stains it badly. Iron is also insoluble and can deposit inside tanks, equipment, and pipelines and affect its working in the same way as other minerals in the water. Iron in water is bad for industries as well as households because its presence can impart a typical smell and make the water taste metallic that people dislike.
To eliminate the problems of hard water, you must install some water treatment plant for softening water. The water softening plant will remove various undesirable elements in water that cause hardness, including calcium, iron, sediment, and rust. To install the right type and size of the water treatment plant, you must seek guidance from some water treatment companies. They supply the system that they also call the water conditioner.
Although mainly used for softening water, the water treatment plants meant for agricultural use reduce water usage by 30% as well as fertilizer usage by 50% by reducing solubility and surface tension. It eliminates the use of wetting agents that also saves cost.
