Pump Systems That Deliver Reliable Performance In Demanding Water Treatment Applications.
As water is one of the most critical aspects to human survival, the treatment of water in order to make it drinkable and clean enough for the use in manufacturing, is just as important. Common markets in the water treatment world include the production of potable-water systems to purify water for human use, and water treatment facilities that process the water to be used in HVAC systems, boilers and cooling towers.
After water has been treated and used for its initial purpose, it then gets sent down to a drain and onto the next journey. However, the water cannot be sent directly back to the environment because it has been contaminated. Either waste treatment facilities or industrial plants have to treat the water so it can either be re-used or disposed of.
There are many different processes in water and wastewater treatment facilities. Depending on the process that is used, it would determine the types of equipment that is needed to get the job done. Types of equipment include pumps, filters, mixers, and much more. One example of this is when they use chemicals to treat the water; this is where we slide into the picture. Anderson Process offers a comprehensive line of industrial pumps to provide pump systems that deliver reliable performance in demanding water and wastewater processes. Many chemicals are used in the treatment of water, which leads to a variety of pump technologies and materials being used.
Centrifugal pumps are one of the most common pump types used in industrial water processing. They are ideal for low-viscosity fluids that can tolerate high flow rates without risk of degradation. As such, they are frequently used to transfer effluent water and chemicals, but especially clean and purified water. Positive displacement pumps are ideal for high viscosity and solids-handling capabilities. They are commonly found pumping digested sludge and sewage sludge, along with chemical injection.
