    Our processes for process water

Process water

Process water includes all water qualities and recycled water required in industrial and commercial production processes. Well water, process water, cooling water, partially desalinated water (soft water), fully desalinated water (deionised water) and ultrapure water are also included. The decisive factor is and remains the targeted use of modern water technology and wastewater technology to dimension the water quality according to the legal requirements so that the process water can be discharged into the sewage system after wastewater treatment. Our processes for water purification and wastewater treatment of process water:

Reverse osmosis

Thanks to the appropriate pre-treatments used by us, reverse osmosis has become the standard method in process water treatment. Pre-treated water qualities are divided into concentrate flow and permeate flow. As a consequence, the salts and other dissolved ingredients which are to be removed from the water remain in the concentrate flow.
As experts in water and waste water treatment technology, ALMAWATECH employees look back on more than 20 years of experience in the planning, dimensioning, design and production of reverse osmosis systems. We customise our system solutions and services, using practically all membrane and module qualities for process water treatment currently available on the market, and will also incorporate those that become available in the future. In order to ensure the highest performance, we rely exclusively on components from German brand manufacturers.
We ensure your reverse osmosis system is dimensioned correctly by using state-of-the-art calculation programmes, which are able to precisely determine the dimensioning required based on the existing water quality. Reverse osmosis systems designed and manufactured by us offer a permanent output of 5-50 m³/h. Of course, in order to ensure efficiency and safety, higher outputs are implemented by using a multi-channel configuration.

Ion exchangers

For decades, ionic and anionic synthetic resins containing calcium have been proven in the field of process water treatment. In this process, the resins are introduced into filter towers according to the required flow rate levels, through which the process water requiring treatment flows. Depending on the size of the plant, the charged resins can either be regenerated within the plant (in situ) or be sent for regeneration by means of an exchangeable filter cartridge system. Naturally, as experts in the field of process water treatment, we offer both solutions and dimension the plants to suit your requirements. ALMAWATECH designs and produces plants with a throughput capacity of 2-50 m3/h.

Ultrafiltration and Microfiltration

In the field of industrial process water treatment, ultrafiltration and microfiltration are excellent ways of removing undissolved particulate and emulsified substances from water cycles and also degreasing tanks, for example. Where biology-related solutions or cooling towers are used in the treatment process, ultrafiltration is used as a pre-treatment for reverse osmosis. The selection and dimensioning of the filter modules, filter pressure and the speed of the module flow rate for optimal process water treatment are all crucial in order for this process to work properly. When designing ultrafiltration and microfiltration systems, ALMAWATECH leaves nothing to chance. We use the expertise of our senior engineers and combine various design tools to achieve optimal dimensioning. The size of the plants range from small compact systems of 100 l/h for tank maintenance to 50 m3/h for the channels used for pre-treatment plants for reverse osmosis. Thus, the various filtration processes and reverse osmosis are optimally interlinked and guarantee water qualities that meet legal specifications.

Disinfection and Oxidation

Due to contact with the atmosphere as well as the product itself, process water is prone to contamination and, accordingly, must be efficiently sterilized and protected against re-contamination. When a chemical approach is used in process water treatment, sterilization is achieved by means of using biocides or chlorination in the treatment process. However, these methods cannot be applied in every environment and for every process. Ozonisation is the chemical-free alternative, consisting of the use of an ozone generator. Another solution often used in the field of process water treatment is an UV disinfection system. Here, UV emitters and UV light are introduced into the water flow, thus reducing germ contamination. Chlorine dioxide systems are another common solution: Liquid chemicals are used to produce chlorine dioxide, a disinfectant, at low cost and relatively safely on site.
As experts in the field of water and waste water cleansing technology, following an exact analysis of the production process, we plan and design custom-made disinfection processes, coordinating them with our customers. This allows us to ensure legal compliance and to integrate our customers’ economic considerations into the planning process.

System solutions

Thanks to our many years of experience in the field of water and wastewater treatment technology, we at ALMAWATECH have become specialists in combining physicochemical and biological processes. That means we are a one stop shop for all of the following processes, among others: we can treat waste water by means of a physicochemical compact pressure release flotation, produce biogas in an anaerobic plant, post-treat the remaining organic load using aerobic biology and then prepare the water for reuse via ultrafiltration and nanofiltration. In the long run, these kinds of system solutions and wastewater treatment plants interlock seamlessly and save costs.
