    The Ultimate FAQ Guide for Commercial Water Filtration Systems.

    Commercial enterprises necessitate a sufficient supply of freshwater as the primary commodity or for personal use. The vastly decreasing supply of freshwater has forced commercial entities reliant on freshwater to seek alternative solutions like water treatment. A massive step towards reinforcing the current freshwater supply has been enabled by the development of effective water filtration systems. Underneath, we provide answers to the internet’s frequently asked questions on commercial water filtration systems.

    Figure 1 Commercial water filtration system.

    What is a Commercial Water Filtration System?

    A commercial water filtration system is essentially a water treatment device specialized to provide fresh product water for commercial enterprises and activities. Commercial water filtration systems are tailored to conveniently support continuous and heavy water treatment. Various filtration processes are utilized infiltration systems to generate different levels of high-quality potable water.

    Predominantly, reverse osmosis is utilized to lessen salinity concentrations and eradicate large and smaller contaminants harbored by feed water. They are built with varying capacities to accommodate both small and big business applications. Filtration systems are also deployed to pre-treat feed water for RO systems.

    What Are The Various Types of Commercial Water Filtration Systems?

    To serve a broader market, manufacturers have developed distinct commercial water filtration systems. The variations infiltration systems are broadly based on:

    • Size: Small filtration systems and large filtration systems.
    • Filtration Process: Reverse osmosis systems, deionization systems, and UV filtration systems.
    • Design: Containerized and skid-mounted filtration systems.

    Reverse Osmosis Filtration Systems.

    Reverse osmosis systems use membrane-based filtration to generate high-quality water for commercial applications such as food and beverages. Standard RO filtration systems are available in varying capacities ranging from 150 to 15,000 gallons per day. Higher capacities are ordinarily processed on order.

    Figure 2 Reverse osmosis filtration system.

    Ultraviolet Filtration Systems.

    These systems are particularly ideal for filtering out viruses, bacteria, and other microorganisms present in feed water. The strategic deployment of UV light kills disease-causing pathogens by destroying their DNA. With a filtration rate of up to 99.9%, UV filtration systems are highly effective and cost-efficient.

    Deionization Filtration Systems.

    Commercial deionization systems typically generate high-grade water by using hydrogen and hydroxyl to respectively replace the positive and negative ions in feed water. Filtration via ion exchange is achieved by either using two-bed deionization or mixed-bed deionization. These systems are easily installed and mitigate scaling. They are commonly utilized in food processing businesses and generate water for the final rinse in car washes.

    Figure 3 Deionization filtration system.

    What Filtration Methods are Used in Water Filtration Systems?

    Water filtration systems utilize varying filtration processes to generate desired water qualities. Existing filtration methods vary in effectiveness, contaminants removed and operational costs hence the need to be careful during selection.

    Distillation.

    It is one of the oldest water filtration mechanisms dating back to ancient times. Distillation typically involves heating feed water to the point of evaporation. Only freshwater turns into vapor given dissolved solids have a higher boiling point. It is then condensed and collected in different containers as fresh product water.

    Reverse osmosis.

    The production of fresh potable water through reverse osmosis relies on the use of high pressure to force feed water through semi-permeable membranes. The use of filters in the pretreatment chamber eradicates large contaminants while the membranes eliminate smaller pollutants.

    Ion Exchange.

    Ion exchange filtration systems operate by substituting dangerous ions with less dangerous ions using resins. It allows the substitution of calcium and magnesium with sodium thereby making it ideal for water softening.

    Figure 4 Ion exchange process.

    What are the Benefits of Using Commercial Water Filtration Systems?

    Water filtration systems are effective remedies to water shortage and contaminated water. They ensure commercial entities have an adequate supply of fresh, clean water without adding to the strain on freshwater reservoirs. Underneath are benefits emanating from the use of commercial water filtration systems.

    • They prevent scaling and corrosion of equipment.
    • They provide a continuous supply of high-quality product water.
    • They are durable and guarantee quick returns on investments.
    • They are effective and have high productivity rates.

    Where are Commercial Water Filtration Systems Applied?

    Freshwater is a must-have for most commercial activities and enterprises. With growing aridification and dwindling freshwater reservoirs, more businesses are embracing water filtration systems. Commercial entities demand different qualities of fresh water and filtration systems accommodate customizations that permit the generation of distinct water qualities. Here are prominent industries solely or partly reliant on commercial water filtration systems for a continuous freshwater supply.

    • Food processing industry.
    • Hotels and restaurants.
    • Carwashes.
    • Pharmaceuticals, laboratories, and cosmetics.
