Filtration and water treatment systems and equipment

Automotive Industry | Filtration and water treatment equipment and supplies


Equipment and supplies commonly used in the automotive industry for filtration and water treatment include:

Sediment filters: to remove solid particles in suspension in water, washing of parts, filtration of sediments in paints, filtration of oils and lubricants, or pretreatment with disc filters for cartridge protection.
Activated carbon treatment: to reduce organic contaminants in water or organic or solvent vapors in the air.
Reverse osmosis systems: to purify water to lower the levels of salts, minerals and other contaminants.
Chemical additives: to control pH and treat specific water quality problems.
Water treatment equipment for cooling circuits: to prevent the formation of sediment deposits and improve system efficiency.

These equipment and products may vary depending on the size of the plant, the amount of water used and the quality of the water available. It is important to have a trained professional to select the right supplies and equipment for each specific situation.

Filtration and water treatment equipment and supplies for the automotive industry


Water treatment is a very important part of any industry. Also in the automotive industry. Water can be contaminated with different elements, such as solid particles, dissolved organics or chemicals, and these contaminants need to be treated before they reach employees or customers. Filtering and purification systems should be used in all industries, as they help prevent potential health hazards and ensure the proper functioning of equipment.

– Sediment filters

Sediment filters are used to remove suspended solid particles from water. They can be used as part of a pretreatment system or as a stand-alone filter for a particular process.

Sediment filters can be disc or cartridge filters. Cartridge sediment cartridges (0.5, 1 and 5 micron typically) are most often used for pretreatment prior to painting or other processes requiring high quality water, while disc sediment filters (50 to 130 micron) are more commonly found in equipment where they are needed for general protection against dirt and debris for protection of cartridge filters or granular filter media such as sand or anthracite.

– Activated carbon treatment

Activated carbon treatment is a common method of removing organic contaminants from water. The activated carbon used in this process is a very porous material that has been processed to increase its surface area and reactivity. The pores allow adsorption of contaminants such as chemicals, odors and gases; this makes it ideal for water filtration applications where it is desired to remove organic contaminants such as pesticides or other toxins that may be present in the source water supply.

Activated carbon treatment can also be used to reduce organic or solvent vapors in the air by placing activated carbon equipment at the end of your extraction system.

– Reverse osmosis systems

Its main function is to remove salts, minerals and other contaminants from the water. Let’s say it is of maximum purification point, but it requires the aforementioned pretreatment as protection.

Reverse osmosis systems can be used in a wide range of industries and applications, such as drinking water purification systems for homes or offices; industrial processes using large volumes of low mineral water; cooling tower systems where concentrated salt solutions are required to prevent corrosion within the cooling tower piping system; desalination plants producing fresh drinking water from seawater or brackish groundwater (saltwater lakes); wastewater treatment facilities requiring high quality effluent discharge streams for municipal discharge permits; nuclear power plants where there are requirements for high purity demineralized process stream…

– Chemical additives

Chemical additives are used to control pH and treat specific water quality problems.

Chemical additives can be used in the automotive industry. Some: Calcite for pH adjustment, sodium hydroxide, sodium hypochlorite, and sodium bisulfate.

– Water treatment equipment for cooling circuits

Cooling circuit water treatment equipment is used to prevent the formation of sediment deposits and improve system efficiency. Cooling circuits are used to cool the engine, transmission and other components. Water treatment equipment for cooling circuits may include:

  • Disc sediment filters – Used to remove large particles from circulating coolant systems (e.g., engines) by passing coolant through a filter media that traps solids on its surface.
  • Chemical additives – Additives are often added directly to the water supply or circulated through a heat exchanger so that they can be mixed with the incoming raw water before entering the tanks or reservoirs.

Basic water treatment and filtration equipment and supplies

Now that you know the basics of filtration and water treatment equipment and supplies, let’s look at some common examples.

Filters and purifiers are used in almost all industries. They must comply with industry standards, but may vary depending on the needs of your company or organization.
