Water Treatment Chemicals

Overview Industry Overview:

Purifying water for its many various uses – from drinking and recreation to industrial and agricultural processes to the safe return of water to the environment – is increasingly important to enhancing health and sustainability as a growing population creates more and more demand on clean water supplies. The chemicals that are used to treat water must be very specialized, with the capability to remove contaminants while leaving little or no trace of their presence in the end product.

Coagulation and flocculation is often the first step in this process, causing particulate contaminants to bind together and form larger particles that can be more easily removed through sedimentation. Then comes filtration and disinfection to neutralize any potentially harmful microorganisms, as well as any remaining contaminant particulates.

App Common Applications:

  • Filters
  • Chlorination
  • Distillation, reverse osmosis, etc.
  • Dissolved substances
  • Disinfection – chlorine, chlorine dioxide, chloramines, etc.
  • Fluoride – adding, removing
  • Water conditioning
  • Plumbsolvency reduction
  • Radium removal
  • Desalination
  • Gas hydrate crystals
  • In situ oxidation
  • Oxidants – hydrogen peroxide, ozone, etc.
  • Algaecides
  • Biocides
  • Antifoam
  • Neutralizing agents
  • Corrosion inhibitors
  • Coagulants
  • Boiler water chemicals
  • Flocculants
  • Scale inhibitors – phosphate esters, phosphoric acids, etc.

It gives me much pleasure to bear testimony to Robbie Ropella. I have formed in the many opportunities afforded, a very high opinion of her character and worth. Of a thoughtful and sober disposition, yet kindly and obliging in nature, she is held in esteem by all who have come into contact with her. The professionalism, integrity and attention to detail shown by Robbie at the outset was underpinned by the speed of her success in gaining competent business professionals to fulfill a highly demanding role within our company.
Having used several headhunters in the past, Robbie is the only one that I would use again. Robbie and the team developed a good understanding of our requirements and have found high calibre like-minded people to add value to our business.  The close connection we have had over the contract period, enables me to commend Robbie as one in whom every confidence may be placed in securing quality individuals.
