Water Treatment

In most engineering applications the supply water is not suitable for im­mediate use without treatment. It is essential that the method of water treatment selected be the one most suited to the application. If steam is used as the working medium for a process, it is essential that water treat­ment be used to prevent the precipitation of substances in the water from fouling pipe work and heat exchangers; otherwise costly plant damage will result.

The method of treatment selected depends on many factors, such as the nature of the salts and the pH of the water, and the assistance of a reputable specialist company is necessary to carry out regular testing and an analysis report.
