Dynamic Water Technologies is constantly monitoring the latest innovations that are affecting water treatment methodology. It’s quite clear that water purification systems have come a long way since dependence on harsh chemicals.
We can say that people are now looking beyond conventional cooling tower water treatment. Most companies want to reduce costs and complications associated with cooling water treatment. That’s why this company features Universal Environmental Technologies’ (UET) cooling tower water treatment reactors.
UET is a processed water treatment method that depends on machine learning algorithms. Simply put, these systems can determine certain natural properties of the water using software, and then fix these issues so the water is suitable for higher cycle rates. Most other industrial water treatment companies do not incorporate eco-friendly and high-tech methods such as this. But this might quickly change.
Here are several methods that this company is looking at to make water treatment less costly and more environmentally friendly:
Nanotech seems like a tech that belongs in the sci-fi movies. Not anymore. In 2015, a research group at Indian Institute of Technology developed a nanoparticle water filtration system that costs only $16. Unlike other cheap filtration systems, this one can remove heavy metals like arsenic and lead from water. The filter has multiple membranes to capture contaminants.
Developed by the EPA, irrigation controllers can be compared to home sprinklers, except designed for vast fields. According to the EPA, having a certified irrigation controller can save close to 9,000 gallons of water annually. Though originally developed for homes, now irrigation controllers are available for businesses and developers as well.
It’s no secret that the amount of freshwater available for drinking on the planet is rapidly disappearing because of pollution. A common sense solution to this problem is desalination. Reverse osmosis makes it possible to strip salt off seawater to make it drinkable. Currently, governments are constructing massive desalination plants to produce drinkable water. It’s possible that this could be a good solution for businesses in the future as well.
The outlook is very optimistic that water treatment technology will rapidly advance in the future so organizations no longer have to depend on cooling tower chemical treatment.
