Industrial Water Treatment

APPLICATIONS & SOLUTIONS

Industrial Water

Industries worldwide depend on reliable, treated water to produce the energy, goods, and services we need. For more than 60 years, ion exchange (IEX) technology has delivered high-quality water needed to enable the growth of the power, petrochemicals, microelectronics, and pharmaceutical industries, and others. Now, IEX technology is helping meet new consumer demands for higher-quality drinking water, more powerful devices, lower-calorie, healthier foods, and others.

At the same time, water scarcity and tightening environmental regulations are becoming real on industrial production in many sectors. In this context, IEX technology is helping companies to grow sustainably, with respect for the planet, by enabling them to reduce their water and energy use and minimizing the environmental impact of waste.

At Jacobi, we are committed to helping our industrial water customers grow sustainably, increase their supply chain security, and reduce their environmental impact. We offer a full line of products enabling our customers to efficiently treat boiler and cooling tower water, recycle wastewater, and minimize waste discharge. Our customers have easy access to our IEX experts for technical support. And our IEX experts will design custom solutions for those customers facing unique challenges.

Electronics manufacturers to reliably supply ultrapure water to the fabrication plant, while addressing sustainability challenges of reducing water footprint and improving waste profile.

Boiler Feed Water

Boiler Feed Water

Left unprotected, industrial boilers and piping are at risk from dissolved and suspended solids, and organic contaminants. We offer a wide range of solutions ranging from softening for low-pressure boilers, to demineralization and polishing for high-pressure boilers.

  • SBA Resinex TPX-4500 and Resinex TPX-4501: removes organics to low levels while enabling regeneration.
  • WAC Resinex K-H: removes hardness (dealkalization) and enables CO2 degasification in a second step.
  • SAC Resinex K-8H (H+) with SBA Resinex A-4 (OH-): cost-effective demineralization of feed water and makeup water polishing, producing distillation-quality water at lower cost.
  • Mixed bed SAC Resinex K-10H UB extra and SBA Resinex A-P MB: produces high quality water* by condensate polishing of steam, turbine, and process streams before return to the boiler.

*< 0.1 uS/cm and Silica < 0.02 ppm

Cooling Tower

Cooling Tower Water

Cooling tower feed, circulation, and blowdown waters contain impurities that can damage assets and impair production through scaling, corrosion, and contamination. Our demineralization solutions are highly effective at treating cooling tower water streams to enable reliable production.

Wastewater

Wastewater

Water intensive industries globally face increasing pressure to reduce water use. Diminishing access to fresh water and escalating discharge costs are driving the search for new ways to reuse wastewater and minimize environmental impact. As a sustainability leader, Jacobi has the expertise needed to design solutions with its customers to meet their wastewater challenges.

For example, there is an increasing need by the semiconductor, printed circuit board, and electroplating industries to remove heavy metals and other contaminants and enable wastewater reuse

Resinex™ CH-23 chelation resin effectively removes cadmium, zinc, copper, chromium, mercury, lead, gold, silver, and cyanide complexes.

Resinex™ CH-80 high purity WAC resins is highly selective to mercury in demanding industrial applications, and removes heavy metals such as silver, copper, lead, nickel, cobalt, and cadmium as well.

SBA Resinex™ TPX-4500 and Resinex TPX-4501 removes organics to enable reuse and minimize BOD / COD / TOC discharge impact.

Steel Plants

The very high energy consumption to produce steel requires to produce the energy by themselves. To produce power,high pressure boilers are used to produce steam. The water for the steam has to follow very low conductivity imits for an economic power production. Ion exchange resins are used for the demineralization, condensate and waste water treatment.

Incinceration / Ground Water Remediation

The waste water of incinerators contains mercury and other harmful contaminants. Ion exchange resins are used to remove the inorganic impurities below the detection limits to ensure to meet the local and national water quality regulations.

Groundwater needs to be treated before the use as drinking water if it is contaminated above local limits. Detrimental constituents such as chromate, nitrate, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), surfactants, and perchlorate can and will be bound to ion exchange resins. Ionic and non-ionic contaminants, which could otherwise disrupt operations in biological water treatment plants or endanger the environment, can be removed from waste water just as efficiently. *Please rewrite, because it is too close to the Lanxess text.
