Our Waterguide for water treatment

Technical knowledge and expertise
From our engineers

We have compiled explanations and definitions of the most important terms in water treatment. In our Waterguide, we have divided these explanations into categories; you can then use these to narrow down topics. Or simply use the technical term search and you will find what you are looking for. If you still have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!

Central concentrate supply

When using a CeCon 3000 central concentrate supply unit, the concentrate is delivered in bulk packs instead of single-use canisters.

Dialysis media supply - connection system without dead zones

Conventional systems use branch lines to supply water to the dialysis machine. When the dialysis machine is not in use, the water in these dead-end branches remains stagnant at room temperature. The risk of germ multiplication increases with the time the system is not in use.

Reverse osmosis

The natural flow of osmosis from low concentration to high concentration is reversible when external pressure is applied to the highly concentrated solution.

Read more …

Reverse osmosis with heat disinfection

You can only maintain a consistently high water quality if you regularly disinfect the entire water circuit, including the reverse osmosis unit.

Read more …

Ultrapure water

Many water processes have special requirements for water purity and water treatment equipment.

Water treatment for dialysis

Dialysate consists of 99% water. That is why water is very important in dialysis treatment. Every year, up to 25,000 litres of dialysate are used to clean the blood of a dialysis patient.

In our Waterguide you will find in-depth Information on all aspects of water treatment

Water treatment describes the process of removing contaminants and pollutants from water to make it safe and/or pure for industrial or medical applications. Water treatment can involve a combination of different physical, chemical and biological processes such as filtration, sedimentation, disinfection, reverse osmosis and activated carbon adsorption. The goal is to produce water of a certain quality necessary for subsequent processes.
Water treatment is important in industry for various reasons. For example for:

  1. Process water: In many industries, water is used as a raw material in various production processes. Here it is important that the water used meets certain quality requirements and is free of contamination.

  2. Or cooling water: Many industrial plants need cooling water to regulate the temperatures in machines and equipment. The cooling water must be free of impurities to ensure the proper functioning of the equipment. Water treatment ensures that the cooling water has the required quality.

In medicine, water purification can be used in several ways. For example, in the production process of medicines and medical devices, pure water is often needed to ensure that the products are free of contaminants.

The water treatment also plays an important role in dialysis treatment, in which the blood of patients with kidney failure is purified. Thereby, the water must be extremely pure in order to prevent impurities from entering the patient's body. In addition, water treatment is also important in the process of cleaning and disinfecting medical equipment and instruments to ensure that they are free of germs and other harmful contaminants.

Water treatment in medicine is an important process that helps to ensure the safety and effectiveness of medical products and procedures. The water treatment units have special features of their own: They have an almost dead-zone free design with a high stainless steel content.
