Process water

High quality water is often needed for energy applications such as boilers, cogeneration, etc.

For the supply of higher quality water, CMI Balteau offers production processes that use standard pre-treatment techniques:

  • screening;
  • filtration;
  • straining;
  • sedimentation;
  • lime softening;
  • iron removal;
  • manganese removal.

Two main processes can be applied for for high quality water production: membrane filtration or ion/exchange. According to the quality of water, additional treatment (polishing) may be required, on a mixed bed of resins or via electro-deionisation (EDI).

The quality of the water resource (river, canal, drilling) and the usage requirements will be decisive in this choice.
