Water

Hose Stations

Hose Station: Dedicated location equipped with a water source, a hose, fittings, and storage for this equipment. Available for fire-fighting, but primarily positioned in production and processing areas for routine cleaning of machines and facilities.

  • SPEC #: 18716
  • Code: 18-17-24

RODI Packages

Utilities, RODI Packages: RO/DI (Reverse Osmosis/Deionization) systems help to remove impurities from water, such as chlorine, chloramines, pesticides, phosphates, heavy metals and many others. Deionizing removes phosphates, silicates and nitrates.

  • SPEC #: 18708
  • Code: 18-17-08

Waste Neutralization Packages

Utilities, Waste Neutralization Packages: A system or machine used to render materials and solutions chemically neutral before they are dumped into a sewer system. Such a process would add an acid to a basic solution or a base to an acidic solution to achieve neutralization. Some systems can handle fluoride reduction and heavy metals. Systems range in size from large municipal installations to small laboratory equipment.

Water Treatment

Water treatment is a process that makes water more acceptable for a desired end-use. These can include use for drinking water, industrial processes, medical, and many other uses. The goal of all water treatment process is to remove existing contaminants in the water, improving it for subsequent use. There are many treatment processes for water, depending upon its application. Pharmaceutical and laboratory water usually requires ultra-pure water with extremely low levels of dissolved gases and other contaminants. Treatment, using degasification and decarbonation equipment, increases the life of process equipment by preventing or controlling corrosion.

WFI

WFI Utilities. Water for Injection (WFI) is water that is injected into the human body. It must be purified by distillation or two-stage reverse osmosis. It is usually stored and distributed hot (at 80 degrees C) in order to meet microbial quality requirements. Distillation is the process of heating a liquid until it boils, capturing and cooling the resultant hot vapors, and collecting the condensed vapors. Reverse osmosis is a separation process that uses pressure to force a solution through a membrane that retains the solute on one side and allows the pure solvent to pass to the other side.
