Here at MAK Water, we have a range of industrial water filtration systems available for purchase or hire throughout Australia. Filtration is important, as it plays a large part in removing suspended solids from water. Various types of industrial water filtration systems are available, with selection depending on the raw water make up (particle size and distribution) and quality requirements of the product water.
Filtration is frequently used as ‘pre-treatment’ of raw water, in order to remove suspended solids prior to desalination via Reverse Osmosis (RO). Typical RO pre-treatment systems include Micro Filtration (MF), Ultra Filtration (UF) and Multi-Media and Cartridge Filtration.
Other forms of industrial water filter systems are used to remove excess ‘hardness’ (generally calcium & magnesium), which have the potential to cause scaling of plumbing and other undesired effects. Typically, softening processes involve Ion Exchange, whereby calcium and magnesium ions are replaced with sodium ions, or Nano Filtration (NF).
