Using the right pretreatment and application equipment is as important as using the right treatment chemicals. A major cause of water treatment program failure is using incorrect or improperly operating equipment.
We view equipment as a key component of the Chem-Aqua Total System Approach. We maintain a well-staffed equipment division with the product line, expertise, and commitment necessary to provide an extensive range of cost-effective equipment solutions.
Pretreatment Equipment: Chem-Aqua Engineered Pretreatment Equipment systems help ensure top performance from water treatment and production processes by removing problem-causing impurities from water before it enters a system. As part of an integrated water treatment program, Chem-Aqua has an extensive line of ion exchange, reverse osmosis, and filtration equipment.
Chem-Aqua’s Pretreatment Equipment advantages include:
Reliability and cost effectiveness
Systems that operate at maximum efficiency
Reduced chemical usage
Conservation of resources
Helping to protect the environment
Chem-Aqua's Engineered Pretreatment Systems are another way Chem-Aqua adds value to our customers’ operations and provides long-term competitive advantages.
Ion Exchange: Chem-Aqua water softeners remove the hardness ions that form scale in pipes and heat exchange equipment, and interfere with critical cleaning and production processes. We manufacture a full range of high-performance water softeners for commercial, light, and heavy industrial applications. Design features such as standard pressure gauges and sample cocks, demand flow regeneration, and pre-assembled piping manifolds enhance operational efficiency and make installation easier.
Chem-Aqua water softeners are available in a range of configurations including:
- Single, Dual, and Multiple Tank Configurations
- Rugged Polyglass or Steel Tanks
- Complete Control Valve and Regeneration Options
Along with softeners, Chem-Aqua offers a variety of other methods that can be used to effectively remove alkalinity, iron, and other dissolved solids from water.
Chem-Aqua manufactures and supports a full range of specialty ion exchange equipment including:
- Condensate Polishers
- Oxidative Iron/Manganese Filters
Reverse Osmosis: Chem-Aqua Reverse Osmosis (RO) Systems economically produce high purity water that benefits a wide range of industries and applications. We provide a full range of RO systems from small pre-engineered skid mounted designs to large flow custom systems. Our expertise and full range of auxiliary equipment enable us to provide ready-to-use RO systems tailored for specific applications.
Chem-Aqua RO Systems feature:
