Water Treatment Services

It is hard to escape the fact that, whatever line of business we are in – from a small office unit to a large global blue-chip company – we all use water during our working day. We provide the following water treatment services:

Commercial Water Treatment Services

Here at Watercare Solutions, we provide a wide variety of high-quality water treatment solutions that help with Legionella Control, Industrial and Commercial waters, Air Quality Analysis, and cost-effective energy efficiency.

Our professional environmental and engineering specialists bring comprehensive and unparalleled knowledge to any project we undertake in water treatment technologies.

Water Quality Evaluation and Care

Our professional, highly-trained consultants can survey and carry out a site water services risk assessment on your water systems to comply with the current legislation HSG274 and ACOP L8 Rev 4 before offering a managed program to control site-specific risks and issues.

WaterCare Solutions has a bespoke selection of high-performance chemical products specifically designed to:

Boiler water system

Boiler water systems

Boiler feed treatment systems are used to protect boiler unit components and piping from damage from things present in the boiler and makeup feed. The components present can be dissolved solids, suspended solids, and inorganic material such as copper, iron, calcium, magnesium, etc. Without the correct treatment, boiler feed water can cause scaling, corrosion and fouling of the boiler equipment. In turn, this can cause costly plant downtime, consistent and expensive maintenance costs, and increased fuel consumption. In some cases, even boiler failure.

These systems work by removing harmful impurities prior to entering the boiler, while also controlling the acidity and conductivity of the water. These systems work to filter, soften, de-alkalize, polish, and distribute the water. The processes are extensive and can vary from system to system.

A well-managed boiler water treatment system will:

Maintain steam quality, increasing reliability and safety

Optimise costs and operational efficiencies

Cooling tower system

Cooling tower water systems are used to protect cooling tower components from damage due to contaminants present in feed water, circulation water, and/or blowdown water. These contaminants may include chlorides, hardness, iron, etc. Untreated cooling water can cause issues such as corrosion, biological growth, scaling, and fouling of cooling equipment. This can lead to several issues such as reduced productivity, excessive maintenance, and equipment replacement costs.

The process of treatment used in these systems usually consists of filtration, softening, side-stream filtration and chemical additions.

A well-managed cooling system water treatment programme will:

Closed circuit water treatment system

A closed-circuit system, also called a closed loop system is a pipework design that enables water to circulate for either heating or cooling purposes in domestic, industrial, and communal purposes. The design is manufactured to retain the same water in a system for an indefinite period. Over time the water will degrade and so will the system. Regular closed system water treatment and management works to prolong the life and increase efficiency of all plant machinery/distribution circulation.

 

Closed circuit system water treatment solutions include:

High-performance corrosion inhibitors

drop bullet

Oxygen scavengers

drop bullet

Broad-spectrum biocides

Our Range of Water Treatment Services Includes:

Professional Legionella Control:

Legionella is mostly found in water and multiplies where temperatures are between 20c – 45c and the correct nutrients are available – usually, the bacteria lay dormant when the temp is below 20c but can’t survive when the temperature exceeds 60c.

Watercare Solutions provides comprehensive Legionella Risk Assessment Services and are delivered by our team of experienced experts, we use these risk assessments to ensure that the disease is managed to meet the standards set by the UK’s regulatory body.

Industrial Wastewater treatment:

The industrial wastewater treatment process includes removing the organic and inorganic contaminants from effluent generated by industrial sites. The water that has been treated can be released to other areas including into the environment, sewer, or reused in plant processes across the nation.

Why:

drop bullet

Protection of the environment to release fewer harmful contaminants and pollutants into their ecosystems.

drop bullet

Compliance with Governing Body Standards to avoid costly fines and to get your industrial site closed.

drop bullet

Lower waste disposal costs

Lower water supply costs

How:

Industrial effluents are diverse in any industry they contain different types and amounts of contamination – this is why our services must be diverse and adapt to every single scenario. Watercare Solutions offer a range of wastewater treatment service that fit with all major industries including automotive, mining, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and many more...

The Problems Water Treatment Manages

Bacteria growth

Bacteria growth is a big issue and can quickly get out of hand if not dealt with correctly. To correct this, water treatment systems can filter the water to dispose of bacteria, and in some cases add chemicals to treat the water in order to kill bacteria and breakdown biofilm.

Corrosion

Corrosion can cause drinking water to appear unpalatable, off-colour and in some cases unsafe. As corrosion is natural, corrosion inhibitors are added to water treatment to prolong the life of plant and piping throughout the water distribution systems, as well as reducing the risk associated with Legionella.

Scaling

Scaling, also referred to as the hardness of the water, is a combination of calcium and magnesium compounds that have precipitated out of water. Scale can decrease the life of systems and incur maintenance costs. As such, scaling is treated by removal at source with chemical scale inhibitors to prevent deposition or in the worst case removal by acid cleaning.

Microbiological activity

Microbial activity is unwanted in cooling water, closed water and domestic water systems etc but microbes are also essential in wastewater treatment. They are responsible for the removal of pollutants and pathogens, recovery of nutrients and energy, and producing clean water.

Ongoing water treatment recommendations

Get in touch today for more information regarding water treatment and ongoing treatment processes. We will also provide a treatment plan as standard with recommendations of ongoing treatment processes.

Effluent / Wastewater treatment techniques

Coagulation/ flocculation

This is where liquid aluminium sulphate is added to raw or untreated water. The result causes dirt particles in the water to coagulate or stick together. After, the dirt particles attach, forming larger particles (flocs) that can easily be removed through settling or filtration.

Sedimentation

Here, water moves slowly, causing heavy floc particles to settle on the bottom. Accumulated floc lives on the bottom, eventually becoming sludge which is eventually carried on to drying lagoons.

Filtration

Filtration, as the name suggests, is where the water is filtered to take particles away from the water. These filters are composed of sand and gravel. Filtration ensures that impurities that float on water gather together.

Disinfection

Before water goes into the distribution system, it is disinfected to get rid of dangerous bacteria, parasites, and viruses. Chlorine is very effective for this.

Sludge drying

Solids gathered during the sedimentation process are transferred to drying lagoons.

Fluoridation

Fluoridation treats water systems to adjust the concentration of free fluoride ions. This process is done to reduce dental cavities.

Ph correction

To adjust pH levels, filtered water is combined with lime. This works to stabilise naturally soft water in order to minimise corrosion.
