Water treatment equipment and supplies
Electronic industry : Water treatment equipment and supplies
Common filtration and water treatment equipment and supplies in the electronics industry include:
- Cartridge filters: pre-filtration of suspended particles (sediments smaller than 1 micron) absolute.
- Activated carbon equipment: to reduce the amount of chemicals and organic contaminants in the water.
- Reverse osmosis systems: to remove salts and minerals present in water.
- Deionization or demineralization systems: to produce pure water with low conductivity by means of EDIs or reverse osmosis + mixed ion exchange resins.
- Ultrafiltration systems: to separate particles and proteins.
- UV water treatment systems: to eliminate microorganisms in the water.
- Granular water treatment media: to regulate pH, prevent corrosion, and remove iron and manganese.
These equipment and products are important to ensure the quality and purity of water used in the manufacture of electronic components and to prevent damage to equipment and processes.
Common filtration and water treatment equipment and supplies in the electronics industry
Water treatment is an important part of many industries, and the electronics industry is no exception. Water purification systems are used to ensure that water used in electronic components and equipment is safe for use. Some common types of filtration and water treatment equipment used in the electronics industry are:
– Cartridge filters
Cartridge filters are used to remove suspended particles (sediments smaller than 1 micron or larger). The filter media can be cellulose or polypropylene. Cartridge filters are often used in the electronics industry because they are easy to maintain and can be quickly installed in existing equipment. Nominal and absolute filtration for better water quality.
– Activated carbon equipment
Activated carbon is a very porous material with a large surface area that adsorbs chemicals and other substances. It can be used to remove organic contaminants from water, as well as hydrogen sulfide from natural gas. It also removes chlorine from the water and organic elements dissolved in the water.
– Reverse osmosis systems
Reverse osmosis is a process that uses pressure to force water through a semi-permeable membrane, which allows only pure water to pass through.
The system has three basic components: a pressure pump, an automatic control valve and a 1-micron cartridge and reverse osmosis membrane. The pump pressurizes the feed water from its source (usually municipal), forcing it through the reverse osmosis membrane element located inside the unit housing. This membrane separates dissolved impurities, such as salts, minerals and other contaminants, and allows only purified drinking water to pass into storage tanks or directly into the facility’s piping system. The osmosis system delivers water with total dissolved solids (TDS) of approximately 10 PPM, where it can be used for many purposes, such as cooling tower make-up or process equipment applications.
– Deionization or demineralization systems
You can use demineralization systems to remove dissolved minerals in the water, which are necessary for electroplating. These systems can be made up of a number of components, including:
- Electrodeionization units (EDI). They use electrodes to remove ions by passing them through an electrolyte solution. They are usually used for very small volumes of water, as they require more energy than other types of deionizers.
- Mixed ion exchange resins. They are used in combination with reverse osmosis or EDI systems to treat large quantities of water, as they are more economical than other methods such as distillation or electrodialysis reversal (EDR). EDRs work in a similar way to mixed ion exchangers, but also include electrodes that allow the amount of energy used in each step to be controlled, so that only what needs to be removed from the source material is removed before it is sent back out again. * Reverse osmosis systems are often combined with mixed ion exchanger resins because they remove total dissolved solids in their entirety.
– Ultrafiltration systems
Ultrafiltration systems are used to separate liquid particles by size. Ultrafiltration is a more efficient way of removing particles than sedimentation, which relies solely on gravity. Ultrafiltration systems are used in the food, pharmaceutical and electronics industries.
Ultrafiltration uses membranes with pores small enough to allow only certain particle sizes to pass through them, while allowing water molecules to pass freely through their openings. The result is a concentrated solution containing larger particles than would be possible without this separation process: ultrafiltration separates the larger molecules and allows the smaller ones (such as water) to pass unimpeded into another tank or container where they can be collected later for reuse in other parts of your facility’s operations.
– UV water treatment systems
UV water treatment systems use ultraviolet (UV) light to eliminate microorganisms in water. UV light can also be used to disinfect air and disinfect surfaces. This process is commonly referred to as “air scrubbing” or “surface disinfection”. UV light can also be used to destroy bacteria and viruses, making it an excellent choice for industrial processes related to food, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics without leaving residues such as chlorine or chlorine dioxide.
Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation has been recognized by regulatory authorities worldwide as a safe and reliable means of controlling microbial contamination in drinking water distribution systems.
– Granular water treatment media
Granular water treatment media are used in the electronics industry to remove impurities from water. They are a great choice for removing suspended solids, controlling pH, removing iron and manganese, turbidity, dissolved minerals and other contaminants from your water supply.
Granular media are made up of tiny particles that can be made of natural materials, synthetic materials, such as activated carbon; or a combination of natural and synthetic materials. The advantage of using granular media is that they are easy to install, as they do not require complicated equipment and high-pressure pumps like other types of filtration systems. The disadvantages are higher initial cost than other types of filters (but lower long-term maintenance costs), slower flow rate than membrane or cartridge filters, less flexibility in terms of the types of contaminants to be filtered (it is not possible to add more granules when needed), and potential clogging problems if there are too many impurities in the water supply.
Water treatment is an important part of the electronics industry, but it can also be very confusing. We can help you with your filtration and water treatment system.
