Liquid purification supplies and systems
Chemical industry : Liquid purification systems and supplies
The chemical industry may require different inputs and water treatment equipment depending on their specific processes and products. In general there are some of the most common include:
Cartridge or disc filters: to remove particles and sediments from the water.
Treatment chemicals: such as sulfuric acid, chlorine and alkalinizers to control pH and reduce bacterial contamination.
Chemical dosing pumps: to control and dose treatment chemicals in the water flow.
Ion exchangers: to remove unwanted ions (cations and anions) from water.
Demineralization equipment: to produce high purity water with low or no conductivity. reverse osmosis + demineralization with mixed resin.
Wastewater treatment systems: to treat and reuse wastewater in the process.
It is important to note that each chemical industry may have specific and customized water treatment requirements. We can help solve problems for both your production line and general purpose drinking water.
Water treatment equipment for the chemical industry
Water is an essential part of many industrial processes and, as such, chemical industries must ensure that they have the right equipment to ensure water quality. Chemical industries use different equipment, which can be divided into two categories: water treatment equipment and wastewater treatment systems. Water treatment systems are used to treat water so that it meets certain criteria before it is used in manufacturing or processing operations. Wastewater treatment systems are intended to treat wastewater prior to discharge or reuse on-site or off-site. Carbotecnia only participates in the former, in the treatment of drinking water and services for maintenance, processes and manufacturing processes.
Cartridge or disc filters
Cartridge filters are the most common type of filter and are used to remove particles and sediment from water. They usually consist of a porous material (made of polypropylene) compressed in the form of a cylinder and placed in a plastic or stainless steel filter holder or filter holder. The inner material can be made of fibers forming a block, accordion pleated to have a larger filtration area or yarns in micron sizes from 0.5 to 200 microns.
Disc filters are similar to cartridge filters except that they have plastic discs instead of fibers or pleated wall. This allows disc filters to handle higher flow rates than cartridge filters, but they are less effective at removing fine particles because they do not have as much surface area exposed to the liquid filtering through them. The most common micronage is from 50 to 130 microns. The advantage of disc filters is the saving in cartridges, since it is a system that can be washed manually or automatically, its closest competitors are the deep bed or sand filters.
Chemicals are a common way to control pH and reduce bacterial contamination of the water. These chemicals include sulfuric acid, chlorine and alkalinizers to control pH and reduce bacterial contamination.

Chemical dosing pumps
Pumps can be used to control the flow of chemicals in the water stream. They are used to control and dose treatment chemicals into the water flow. The most common is the dosing of chlorine or chlorine dioxide for disinfection, but most chemicals can be used depending on your needs.
Ion exchangers (using anionic and cationic resins)
In the chemical industry, ion exchangers are used to remove unwanted ions from water. Ions are electrically charged atoms or molecules that can be positive or negative. An example of a cation is sodium (Na+), while an example of an anion is chlorine (-Cl). The most common type of ion exchanger used in the chemical industry is a synthetic organic polymer known as polyethylenimine (PEI).
Ion exchangers work by means of an ion exchange resin: it absorbs one type of ion from the solution and releases another type in exchange for it. For example, if we put some PEI in water containing NaCl but no other salts, eventually all those NaCl ions will be replaced by H+ ions coming from the hydrogen peroxide nearby, in the upper surface layer; meanwhile, the chloride ions will return to the solution far from where they were originally located, inside the pores of the volume occupied by the polymer matrix material itself (i).
- Demineralization equipment: to produce high purity water with low or no conductivity. reverse osmosis + demineralization with mixed resin.
- Ultrafiltration equipment: used in the chemical industry to remove impurities from wastewater and wastewater treatment plants, as well as in some food and beverage applications.
Chemical industries may require different equipment depending on their processes.
As you can see, the water treatment equipment market is diverse and complex. There are different processes that require inputs and equipment to ensure their proper operation.
The chemical industry may require different types of equipment depending on its processes and products. For example, if you manufacture chlorine gas (Cl2), your main concern will be to remove excess oxygen from the water so that it does not react with your product during production. However, if you produce sodium hydroxide (NaOH) or potassium hydroxide (KOH), pH control is more important, as these chemicals are corrosive at high pH levels*.
Chemical industries need to treat water to ensure its safe use. Different types of equipment can be used for this purpose, depending on the chemicals used in the process. For example, if demineralization or reverse osmosis is required, equipment with mixed resins or polyamide (PA) membranes will be needed.
