Industry consumes and processes huge volumes of water in the manufacture of everyday goods and services. Water acts as an energy carrier, basic ingredient, coolant, solvent and washing agent. It is also required in the production of crops, the processing of food and the generation of energy. Before water can be used for these processes, it often has to undergo some degree of physio-chemical processing. The treated water may then be included in the final product or utilised to provide a community service such as a public swimming pool.
Broad application spectrum
Given the increasing scarcity of water, manufacturing and process industries are challenged to use it more wisely and meet growing consumer expectations on environmental protection and sustainability without compromising quality. Industrial gases have many valuable applications in the treatment of process water and can help balance these challenges. Well-established applications include pH control, oxygenation, pre-treatment for reuse, bacterial control in cooling water, mineral saturation control (through selective precipitation) and the removal of dissolved gases. Industrial gases can be used to replace potentially harmful mineral acids and non-degradable organic chemicals. They are becoming an increasingly popular choice among companies looking to reduce their chemical consumption profile and improve their environmental performance.
As a leading supplier of industrial gases, we have been optimising process water treatment for decades. The combination of our broad gas offering, process technologies and in-depth expertise can help you solve all of your process water challenges.
