    The Ultimate FAQ Guide for Industrial Water Treatment Systems

    I know you’re looking for reliable and efficient industrial water systems or you would like to learn more about industrial water treatment equipment. That’s why this guide will take you through basic and advanced concepts about industrial water treatment systems.

    Let’s dive right in.

    What Is An Industrial Water Treatment System?

    Industrial waste water treatment systems layout

    This is a system that treats water, making it usable in different areas such as:

    • Consumption
    • Water recreation
    • Manufacturing
    • River flow maintenance
    • Irrigation
    • Disposal
    • Industrial water supply

    This means the industrial water treatment equipment will improve the quality of water making it appropriate for a certain end-use.

    The process entails removing or lowering the concentration of contaminants, impurities, and other undesirable components.

    Besides, there are different types of industrial water treatment systems that perform certain tasks and use various technologies.

    Industrial waste water treatment plant

    What Are The Processes Involved In Industrial Water Treatment Equipments?

    The two main processes that take place in industrial water treatment systems are boiler water treatment and cooling water treatment. Huge amounts of water treatment can cause reactions of solids and bacterial elements in the pipe works and the boiler housing. Besides, steam boilers can scale or corrode when you do not treat the water, and scale deposits cause the system to weaken and be dangerous.

    Also, more fuel is vital for heating water of the same quantity due to an increase in thermal resistance. Poor quality and dirty water can increase the breeding of bacteria which can cause a risk to public health. Dissolved oxygen, acidity, and surplus alkalinity can cause corrosion in low-pressure boilers.

    This is why it is important to eliminate dissolved oxygen so that pH and alkalinity levels are suitable.

    Lack of effective water treatment causes corrosion, scaling, and fouling in cold water systems, thereby decreasing their efficiency and lifespan.

    Boiler Water Treatment

    This type of industrial water treatment machine focuses on eliminating or chemically modifying elements that may damage the boiler. Besides, you will use various types of treatments at different locations to minimize foaming, corrosion, and scaling. Internal treatment within the boilers will limit the chance of water dissolving the boiler. It also maintains the level of impurities in forms that will not cause issues before removing them from boilers within boiler blowdowns.

    Boiler water treatment

    Cooling Water Treatment

    This is a process that involves eliminating heat from components of the system and the industrial equipment. Water is better at transferring heat in situations where air cooling is not effective. Besides, water has high specific heat capabilities and evaporative cooling.

    What Are The Technologies Involved In Industrial Water Treatment Systems?

    Some of these technologies include the following:

    Chemical Treatment Technology

    This type of treatment technology is suitable for making industrial water good for usage or discharge.

    Chemical treatment may entail the following:

    1. Chemical precipitation
    2. Ion exchange
    3. Chemical disinfection
    4. Advanced oxidation
    5. Chemical neutralization
    6. Chemical oxidation

    Physical Treatment Technology

    Filtration is a process that eliminates particles from water by passing them into sand layers. For instance, this may include a mechanical filter or a rapid gravity filter. Besides, dissolved air floatation will eliminate floating solids from the water. This happens by first dissolving air in water under high-pressure levels.

    Next, you will release the air or water within a floatation tank at atmospheric pressure. The released air will form tiny bubbles that stick to the floating solids, hence, making them float to the surface.

    Afterward, you will eliminate the floating solids by using a piece of skimming equipment or through an overflow.

    Biological Treatment Technology

    Slow sand filters will use biological water treatment processes to produce potable water by purifying raw water. They operate by utilizing complex biological films that will grow on the surface of sand naturally. This layer of gelatinous film known as the hypogeal layer sits a few milliliters on top of the sand layer. The biofilm surface will purify water when it flows within the layer while the underlying sand offers support for biological treatment layers.

    More algae will form as the biofilm ages, which traps particles as water passes via the hypogeal layer. Protozoa, fungi, and bacteria will then metabolize the contaminants.

    These filters lose their efficacy as the biofilm thickens which lowers the flow rate.

    Physio-chemical Treatment Technology

    This is also known as conventional treatment.

    Here, you will use chemical flocculants to produce a floc in water which then traps the floating solids.

    Also, you can add chemical polyelectrolytes to enhance the coagulation of the floating solids hence improving their removal.

    Which Instruments Will You Use In Industrial Water Treatment Systems?

    These instruments assist in maintaining the integrity of industrial water treatment systems.

    They also ensure the safety of the industry and the cleanliness of the final product.

    Some of these instruments include:

    Level Instruments

    These instruments will maintain liquids or gases at specific levels within the tanks, pipes, or silos in industrial water treatment equipment. Besides, it is hard to know the liquid or gas present in these treatment pipes since they are opaque. Therefore, system operators use level radar, transducers, and sensors to monitor the water levels. Also, you can connect radars, switches, and transducers to the alarms, controllers, or pumps. These instruments will assist in automatically adjusting the flow of gas and water depending on the incoming data. Continuous-level instruments offer consistent measurements. Point-level instruments will only relay information when water levels reach a preset level to prevent overflow.

    Tank water level transmitter

    Flow Instruments

    These instruments operate by determining fluid gas levels and the rate of flow within an enclosed pipe system.

    Flow instruments will measure the mass and volume at specific time intervals.

    Operators use this information to monitor the mass and volume of flow to maintain the safe and functional operation of other treatment equipment.

    Also, the data is useful in triggering flow switches, supply valves, and pumps.

    Examples of flow instruments include:

    1. Magnetic flowmeters
    2. Pressure-based meters
    3. Variable area meters
    4. Thermal flowmeters
    5. Mechanical flowmeters

    Ultra sonic flow meter

    Pressure Instruments

    These include sensors, gauges, pressure transmitters, and transducers.

    Also, you will install pressure instruments in pumps, pipes, and reservoirs of industrial water treatment systems.

    Some pressure instruments measure the rate of flow, pressure, and fluid levels.

    Pressure instruments assist in maintaining sage pressure levels which inhibit the system from failing.

    The type of pressure instrument depends on the testing parameters, accuracy needed, and specific contaminants in water.

    Pressure instruments

    Water Quality Monitoring Instruments

    These instruments are vital for use in industrial water treatment systems. Before recycling or releasing the water, it should conform to local and national cleanliness water quality standards.

    Besides, you can use inline water quality monitoring instruments to continuously provide a reading at various points during the treatment process.

    The type of meter you will use depends on the system you are using and the testing environment. For instance, reverse osmosis eliminates total dissolved solids [TDS] from water meaning the inline meter here will measure TDS.

    Also, you can include manual water quality testing spots to increase accuracy and assurance.

    Portable or benchtop meters can assist in conducting such manual readings.

    Which Chemicals Are Used In Industrial Water Treatment Systems?

    There are various types of chemicals you can use in industrial water treatment equipment.

    Here are the different types of chemicals you can use:

    • Algaecides.
    • Antifoams.
    • Biocides.
    • Boiler water chemicals.
    • Coagulants.
    • Corrosion inhibitors.
    • Disinfectants.
    • Defoamers.
    • Scale inhibitors.
    • Resin cleaners.
    • pH conditioners.
    • Oxygen scavengers.
    • Oxidants.
    • Neutralizing agents.
    • Flocculants.

    What Equipment Does Industrial Water Treatment Equipments Use?

    Here is a list of the common equipment that industrial water treatment systems utilize:

    Ultrafiltration System

    This is a pressure-driven system that makes use of membranes to eliminate the following:

    1. Metal hydroxides.
    2. Dispersed materials.
    3. Emulsified oils.
    4. Suspended solids.
    5. Coolant.
    6. Emulsions, etc.

    Ultrafiltration will excel at clarifying solutions that have bacterial-suspended solids, oil, or macromolecules in high levels. The design of ultrafiltration systems minimize oily water volume to levels up to 98% without the need to use chemical additives.

    Also, this system can eliminate small fines in operations entailing deburring and tumbling that can recycle and reuse water and soap solutions.

    When you calculate heating and disposal costs, there is a reduction of up to 75% of costs relating to detergents and wash water.

    Also, the waste disposal cost will reduce by as much as 90%.

    These savings make ultrafiltration systems more popular than other conventional filtration methodologies.

    Water ultra filtration system

    Vacuum Evaporation And Distillation

    Evaporation is a natural and clean process that many industrial water treatment processes recognize. This process is unique because it removes water from contaminants and not the other way around.

    Besides, no technology can achieve a high recovery rate of water as vacuum evaporators.

    These evaporators will increase the natural evaporation process that treats and distill huge amounts of industrial wastewater.

    Also, they can attain a total residual concentration of solids levels exceeding 85%. The main vacuum evaporators include:

    Heat Pumps

    These are flexible and versatile evaporators that consume low amounts of energy while being reliable.

    Mechanical Vapor Recompression

    This process treats large amounts of wastewater with low boiling temperatures for lowering energy consumption.

    Hot Water Or Cold Water

    These evaporators lower operating costs by using the existing surplus hot water or steam and cooling water.

    Vacuum Evaporators For Industrial Water Treatment

    Reverse Osmosis

    Reverse osmosis technology will eliminate dissolved solids and other impurities in water by applying a semipermeable membrane.

    The membrane will allow water to pass through but inhibit the passage of dissolved solids and other types of contaminants.

    For this process to occur, it needs greater-than-osmotic pressure and high-pressure water.

    Water that passes through the membrane is known as the permeate and the dissolved solids that do not pass are known as the concentrate.

    Besides, suitably designed reverse osmosis can eliminate up to 99.5% of the impurities.

    For surface treatment, metalworking, and industrial applications, reverse osmosis is the final process after ultrafiltration or chemical treatment.

    Reverse osmosis water treatment system

    Paper Bed Filters

    These filters will operate through gravity and use disposable paper media or permanent filter media.

    The media produces positive barriers that eliminate solids from free-flowing industrial liquids.

    Paper bed filters enhance surface finish quality and increase coolant and tool life by up to 27%.

    These systems can come with or without magnetic separation and can contain liquid flow rates of up to 130 GPM [gallons per minute].

    The drum-type model occupies one-third the space that a paper bed filter occupies, and can process up to 500 gallons per minute.

    Besides, paper bed filters are suitable for usages involving low-to-medium-stock elimination of the following:

    1. Ferrous metals
    2. Nonferrous metals
    3. Organic contaminants
    4. Inorganic contaminants

    Paper bed water filter

    Solid Bowl Centrifuges

    These systems use centrifugal force to separate the solid material from the liquid.

    Here, you can pump or gravity-feed the process liquid to the inlet of the centrifuge.

    The process liquid separates from the liquid and you can collect them within a liner, which is a removable rotor.

    Solid bowl centrifuges offer high-performance separation of liquid and solids of all particle types.

    Also, they are available with either a manual or a fully automatic self-cleaning system.

    Solid bowl centrifuge

    Tramp Oil Separator

    In this industrial water treatment system, the contaminated fluid will go through baffles and porous media beds.

    During the process, free-floating and mechanically dispersed oils will separate from the fluid.

    The clarified fluid will flow to effluent discharge weirs and then back to the reservoir for recycling.

    Other waste materials such as collected oils move to the top of the separators before automatically discharging them to receptacles.

    Separators use a combination of gravity flow and coalescence to lower tramp oils to sub-one percent.

    Tramp oil separators can perform the following as well:

    1. Achieve return on investment [ROI] within 6 months
    2. Lower costs relating to heating, wash water detergents, and disposal
    3. Reduce the volume of hazardous waste by up to 90%
    4. Lower the cost of new fluid purchase by 75%

    Vacuum Filters

    These filtration systems can minimize downtime since they can operate continuously.

    They are also maintenance-free and offer high-sludge-volume removal at a low production cost.

    Disposable vacuum filters use vacuum chambers to contain dirty coolant via disposable filter media.

    Also, they can achieve up to 2000 gallons per minute in flow rate.

    The semi-permanent versions can lower operation costs by removing the need to use disposable media.

    Also, you can backflush the system with clean coolant to keep it clean without needing to use large amounts of air.

    What Is The Objective Of Industrial Water Treatment Systems?

    The objective of industrial water treatment systems is to:

    • Prevent scaling
    • Prevent corrosion
    • Prevent biological growth
    • Conform to water disposal standards

    The industry’s infrastructure and equipment will fail if you do not eliminate harmful salts and corrosive gases.

    Failure of the system can happen when industrial water treatment systems are not balanced and the main parts are corroding.

    This causes important operations like steam production to shut down since scaling or corrosion will affect the efficiency of the boiler tubes.

    Industrial water treatment systems use several processes in either parallel or series configurations to conform to specific water quality standards.

    Back to the guide ⇪

    What Is The Significance Of Ion Exchange In Industrial Water Treatment Systems?

    Ion exchange treatment is vital for protecting the main parts such as cooling towers and boiler feed units in industrial water treatment systems.

    This means it would be impossible to produce steam reliably and cost-effectively without ion exchange systems.

    Ion represents charge molecules and when you dissolve ionic elements in water, the molecules will change into cations.

    Cations are molecules with a positive charge while anions are molecules with a negative charge.

    Ion exchange system

    Back to the guide ⇪

    How Do Membrane Filtration And Dearation Compare In Industrial Water Treatment Equipments?

    Here is how these two compare:

    Membrane Filtration

    This is also known as reverse osmosis. Here, you will force water via a semipermeable membrane to eliminate ions, molecules, and large particles.

    The membrane is within a tube and you apply pressure to overcome the osmotic pressure of water.

    A high-pressure pump generates the pressure and the pressure varies depending on:

    1. Type of membrane
    2. Quality of final water needed
    3. Nature of the raw water

    Membrane Filtration For Water Reuse


    This is a process whereby you introduce water and steam in a deaerator-packed column tower to cause degasification. Steam will heat water close to saturation point and maintain a low-pressure vent. This happens as you spray water inside a vertical-packed deaerator tower unit. Also, you will introduce steam at the lower end of the tower thereby impacting the falling water. Heated steam from boiler feed water units will increase the water temperature to saturation point. This causes the dissolved gases to separate from the water. Deaerators mostly eliminate oxygen but can also eliminate carbon dioxide gas.

    Diagram Illustrating Deaeration Process

    Back to the guide ⇪

    What Are Degasification And Decarbonation Towers In Industrial Water Treatment Systems?

    These are vertical towers that use distribution units and media beds.

    The media beds can be PVC or random-packed which get support from a false bottom.

    Decarbonization and degasification towers use blowers to form cross-current airflow inside the tower when it contacts the inlet feed water.

    Water enters from the top of the tower and falls downwards due to gravity.

    Concurrently, the cross-current airflow moves upwards and gets exhausted at the upper part of the tower.

    Besides, the design of decarbonates and degasifiers can be induced-draft or forced-draft.

    Back to the guide ⇪

    What Are The Types Of Industrial Water Treatment Machines?

    These include:

    Raw Industrial Water Treatment System

    Raw water refers to any untreated water that exists naturally in the surrounding environment.

    This includes lakes, rainwater, rivers, groundwater, wells, etc.

    In an industrial setting, you may use raw water to cool, rinse, and formulate products, or for human consumption after purification.

    Raw industrial water treatment systems pretreat and optimize sources of water to enhance production and process performance.

    The purpose of treating raw water is to protect downstream equipment from corrosion, fouling, scaling, or other types of damage.

    This usually happens when contaminants are available in the water source.

    Raw industrial water treatment systems eliminate colloidal solids, silica, bacteria, iron, and hardness.

    Boiler Feed Industrial Water Treatment System

    These systems will protect the parts of boiler units and piping from various damages due to contaminants available in boilers or makeup feeds.

    The contaminants entail dissolved and suspended solids, and organic materials like silica, aluminum, copper, etc.

    Boiler feeds will scale, corrode, and foul when you fail to properly treat the water.

    The effect of this is downtime, more fuel consumption, high maintenance fees, and the failure of the boiler.

    Cooling Tower Industrial Water Treatment System

    These systems protect parts of the cooling tower from various damages due to the contaminants available in feed, circulation, or blowdown water.

    The types of contaminants here include biological materials, total dissolved solids, chlorides, iron, etc.

    Using untreated water causes scaling, biological growth, corrosion, and fouling.

    Wastewater Industrial Water Treatment System

    These systems will change the used streams to an effluent that you can reuse or discharge safely to the surrounding environment.

    Wastewater industrial water treatment equipment assists in eliminating harm to the:

    1. Environment
    2. Facility equipment
    3. Human health
    4. Products or processes

    Also, it helps the industry avoid heavy fines or legal action due to improperly discharging wastewater.

    The complexity of this system depends on regulations pertaining to your industry and the nature of the wastewater.

    This system will treat for:

    1. Nitrates.
    2. Synthetic chemicals.
    3. Pathogens.
    4. TSS.
    5. Biochemical oxygen demand [BOD].
    6. TDS.
    7. Phosphates.
    8. Metals.

    Back to the guide ⇪

    How Does Raw Industrial Water Treatment System Operate?

    Raw industrial water treatment machine varies from one installation to another.

    The following steps highlight how they work:


    Raw water enters the system via gravity or through pumps.

    The water passes through metal gates or mesh screens to inhibit large materials from reaching the system.


    The water proceeds for clarification, a multistep process that eliminates suspended solids from the solution.

    This process starts with coagulation, in which chemicals and pH alterations cause the particles to clump together.

    The next process is flocculation entailing physical agitation to promote the formation of large particles.

    After that, the sedimentation step encourages the stream to flow to gravity settlers which allow solid particles to settle at the bottom.

    The stream undergoes filtration via gravity sand filters to hold smaller particles that failed to settle.


    This process eliminates pathogens if biological contamination or water potability is important.

    Disinfection entails applying the following:

    1. Chemical disinfectants such as chlorine
    2. Physical disinfectants such as heat or ultraviolet
    3. Membrane filtration

    Lime Softening

    This step happens if you need to minimize the hardness in the streams by using sulfate or high mineral content.

    The process involves applying lime soda or lime to increase the pH value of the stream.

    This process encourages the mineral components to precipitate from the solution.

    Ion Exchange [IX]

    There are instances where raw industrial water treatment systems have ion exchange units to remove hardness.

    It may also perform other special treatment requirements.

    Here, you will direct the stream through strong acid cation resins that have a sodium charge.

    As water flows, the resin will capture the magnesium ion or the hardness-causing calcium.

    Concurrently, it will release sodium ions inside the stream.


    After treatment, you will pump or route water to other places within the facility.

    Membrane Filtration

    Nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, and microfiltration are becoming popular and affordable.

    This effect makes them a replacement for conventional technologies like lime softening and clarification.

    Back to the guide ⇪

    How Does Boiler Feed Industrial Water Treatment System Operate?

    The process involves the following:

    Makeup Water Intake

    Using boilers loses water due to steam consumption, leakages, and loss of the condensate return.

    Therefore, you need to replace this water with makeup water from raw or treated water systems.


    The stream passes through several filtration systems to eliminate organic matter, turbidity, and sediments.

    Membrane filtration is cost-effective at preventing high maintenance and fouling when you use it for pretreatment after IX.


    IX eliminates hardness from the boiler feed water and other contaminants such as nitrates and sulfates.

    This happens since it uses a softening resin, which is a strong acid cation resin, to capture hardness ions.


    Alkalinity causes carryover, corrosion, and foaming within boilers and piping.

    It is therefore important to treat boiler feeds with a strong anion IX or a weak acid IX.

    Afterward, you will conduct degasification to remove bicarbonates, nitrate ions, sulfates, and lower pH values.

    Reverse Osmosis And Nanofiltration

    This process can eliminate organics, bacteria, hardness, silica, and salts.

    RO and NF apply membrane filtration to hold contaminants that cannot pass the pores.

    Primary Ion Exchange

    Deionizers are used for large amounts of water and high-pressure boilers.

    IX generates water of high quality, yield, and resistivity.


    This process entails removing dissolved carbon dioxide and oxygen from the stream, which inhibits corrosion.


    This step entails mixed bed deionization, offsite regenerable DI, and electro-deionization.


    Boiler feedwater moves to boilers where it heats to form steam.

    How Does Cooling Tower Industrial Water Treatment System Operate?

    This entails the following:

    Industrial water cooling tower

    Makeup Water Intake

    This is water that you add after some of it is lost via evaporation, leakages, or drainage.

    It may be treated or raw.


    The water passes via filtration units to eliminate sediments, organic material, and turbidity.


    This process will improve how efficient the cooling tower becomes since the contaminants can cause scaling and rust.

    Chemical Addition

    This entails applying corrosion inhibitors that will neutralize the acidity in the stream.

    Also, you can add biocides or algaecides to minimize biological materials from growing.

    Adding scale inhibitors prevent the contaminants from forming scales in the system.

    Side-stream Filtration

    This process eliminates problematic impurities that enter the system through leakages or drift contamination.

    This is useful since several cooling towers recycle water after usage.


    This process may involve treating blowdown water through IX or RO before reusing it.

    Can You Test Water Quality In Industrial Water Treatment Systems?

    Yes, you can use the following tests:

    Temperature Test

    This test determines the speed of biochemical reactions within aquatic environments.

    High temperatures limit the ability of water to hold oxygen, hence decreasing the resistance of organisms to certain pollutants.

    PH Test

    This will test the acidity of water as most organic organisms survive between a pH range of 6 and 8.

    Chloride Test

    Fresh and salty water contain chloride and high levels of chloride can come from industrial pollution and dissolution of minerals.

    Salinity Test

    It measures all dissolved non-carbonated salts in water.

    Turbidity Test

    This test measures how clear the water is after treatment.

    Dissolved Oxygen Test

    It measures the amount of dissolved oxygen in the water.


    It entails measuring the presence and concentration of pesticides.


    This measures the reduction-oxidization potential of water, indicating electron activities.

    Electrical Conductivity

    This test will estimate the total dissolved solids in water.

    Nitrate And Phosphate

    The presence of these nutrients will indicate a strong plant life.

    However, artificial nitrates and phosphates cause eutrophication, leading to algal bloom.


    This entails testing to see if there are metals present that are not normally available in the water.

    What Are Some Conventional Industrial Water Treatment Systems?

    These include:


    This process entails adding salts from aluminum or iron to the water.

    They have a positive charge hence neutralizing negative charge particles, thus forming particles.

    The particles then settle at the bottom of the system.


    This process entails forcing water to move through a porous media to eliminate contaminants.

    The pores have various sizes that filter out contaminants and allow water to pass through.

    A filtration system may contain sand, charcoal, and gravel.
