Water supply management
The water used to supply industrial processes and utilities represents the largest water-related expenditure at an industrial site. Diversifying water resources while securing reliable water supplies contributes to reducing the water footprint of industrial activities.
Ensure the water supply is reliable in terms of quality and quantity
Groundwater sources can be tapped by various methods such as shafts, boreholes, drainage tunnels, springs etc. These catchments enable many industrial sites to reduce their dependency on external water supplies.
Desalinate seawater to generate a new water supply
Delivering fresh water to locations with no natural access to it is an ongoing challenge for certain industrial site operators who must ensure continuity of production. Optimising the quality of water produced and its production costs while minimising the impacts of its use on the environment remain a major environmental and economic issue for industrial operators.
Adapt treatments to water usage
Controlling the quality of water in processes is a source of value generation for industries. Intended for product manufacture or equipment operation, water requires different quality levels depending on its use.
- Control the water quality on new sources of supply, in particular suspended solids, turbidity, polluting agents, nitrates, metals, minerals, colloid index
- Treat waste water for further use, taking into account suspended particulate criteria, organic pollution, salt content and toxicity
- Increase concentration ratios in cooling and heating systems following the introduction of new policies on recycling and the reduction of use of traditional resources
- Suspended particulates
- Mineral compounds
- Organic polluting agents
The technology and services we provide ensure the quality and quantity of water required, whatever the source of supply to produce heat.
- Suspended solids, salt content and scale formation in make-up water
- Corrosion in water supply networks
- Corrosion and pollution in condensate recovery
- Variation of concentration and heat losses in drainage water
- The quality of make-up water
- Scale formation
- Microbiology (including legionella in open recirculating systems
