Water Treatment - Prima Air

Prima Air can supply all the components needed to avoid any undesired side effects from the use of water in an industrial humidification system. Options to choose from are a water softener, UVC lamp or osmosis installation. Legionella protection is a standard component of all our systems.

Our water treatment systems prevent limescale, dust deposits and deterioration of the machines. Based on our extensive experience, we are happy to work with you to determine the ideal solution for your needs.

Water Treatment Systems

Water purification systems by Prima Air

Prima Air has decades of experience with water treatment systems. We have installed many water softeners, water sterilizers, water disinfection systems and reverse osmosis installations over time in our industrial humidification installations.

Prima Air can provide two types of additional water treatment:

  • UVC sterilization (ultraviolet water sterilization)
    Used for the disinfection and sterilization of water. The water is disinfected from all possible pathogens and microbes .
  • Reverse osmosis
    Very effective filtration of water in order to obtain purified process water.

UVC Sterilization

Water can be sterilized using ultraviolet light radiation, in specific UVC light. UVC light are waves with the shortest wavelength in the UV range, approximately 250 nm. Microorganisms are sensitive to UV-C light radiation and will be exterminated if radiation power and exposure time are sufficient.

What are the advantages of Prima Air Ultraviolet sterilizers?

  • Robust and reliable with a long product life time
  • Easy to install
  • Easy to maintain
  • Overdose is impossible
  • UVC light protection included
  • No storage tanks
  • No chemicals added to the humidifier
  • Disinfects 24/7
  • Water tight
  • Electrically safe to use
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Reliable technology for more than 100 years

Prima Air can integrate a UV water sterilization module in the industrial humidification installation if desired. We can also supply the module separately to customers. 

How does it work?
UV water sterilization is done with a lamp that emits UVC light. Water must flow closely past this lamp in order to receive a sufficient amount of UVC radiation for the pathogens to be killed. Prima Air UV water sterilization components are a tube that has a water in- and outlet. This tube is completely watertight and can be easily integrated in the water circuit.

Reverse Osmosis

A reverse osmosis installation, often abbreviated to RO system installation, uses a semipermeable membrane to separate contaminants from the water. Prima Air reverse osmosis installations push water through this membrane at a high pressure. After this filtration step, there is a big, clean flow of water and a small, contaminated flow of water. 

What are the advantages of Prima Air RO water purifier installations?

Prima Air reverse osmosis installations offer high performance filtration of water with:

  • Low maintenance
  • Chemical-free process
  • Environmentally-friendly filtration

Prima Air reverse osmosis filters will reliably

  • Reduce the water salt content
  • Reduce the amount of heavy metals found in the water
  • Reduce the nitrates and sulfates concentration
  • Soften hard water, remove calcium and prevent limescale

How does it work?
The reverse osmosis device separates a stream of drinking water into a stream of pure water, in which hardly any salts are dissolved, and a small stream of water with which the remaining salts are flushed out. This separation process takes place under increased water pressure and with the help of a separation membrane. The heart of the device consists, simply put, of a pressure increase pump and a separation membrane. In this process, no substances are added or removed from the incoming water.

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:

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Molds
  • Algae

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 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 to integrate 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.
