Industrial disinfection of water
For many applications it is essential that process water does not contain any contaminants and is free of pathogens and microbes like:
In order to obtain water that is clean and safe to use during industrial processes, water purification systems are required. Tap water and/or recycled process water can be treated with these installations.
The process of water disinfection entails the extermination, deactivation or removal of pathogens and microbes in water. The unwanted contaminants are destroyed and the microbe culture will no longer develop in the water. This makes the water suitable for industrial processes or the humidification system.
Disinfection of water can be achieved in different ways:
- Water UV sterilization
- Water reverse osmosis installation
- Water chemical treatment for disinfection
Disinfection of water is often referred to as water sterilization. During the sterilization process all present pathogens and microbes are exterminated.
Water treatment for Prima Air Humidifiers
Normally, Prima Air industrial humidifier installations are connected to the standard tap water supply. This is safe drinking water, but nevertheless, all Prima Air humidifiers are provided with a legionella protection to make sure no dangerous pathogens can develop in the piping system.
Optionally, Prima Air industrial humidification systems can be connected to the customer’s own water supply, which for example uses recycled process water or rain water. Anything is possible. We do advise integrating additional water treatment systems in this case.
It is also possible to integrate additional water treatment modules in standard tap water supply installations if desired. For example, if the industrial humidifiers will be turned off for certain periods of time, it may be wise to include a water sterilizer to make sure the water is sterilized in case any type of pathogens and microbes have developed in the water.
