IRO has been in the water treatment industry for 16 years. During this time, IRO developed from a small company to one of the famous brands of water treatment chemicals. We have established long-term relationships with clients all over the world. IRO also welcomes new clients to contact us.
The definition of water treatment chemicals can be easily found on Wikipedia. However, it is very inconvenient to let you find it by yourself. We should give you a better introduction to why water treatment chemicals are needed.
At present, the demand for fresh water is increasing due to the needs of human beings and the development of work activities. Paradoxically, with urbanization and economic development, the current freshwater supply cannot meet those needs.
For this reason, the chemical industry has adopted a new method of treating water. This approach allows water to meet a variety of uses, such as domestic water, agricultural and industrial uses.
The methods of water treatment around the world are similar. However, most methods include four basic processes. They are boiler water treatment, cooling water treatment, wastewater treatment, and water purification treatment. During these water treatments, harmful substances (suspended solids, viruses, fungi, bacteria, algae, and minerals) in the water need to be removed. The process of this process involves both physical and chemical methods. The chemicals used in this process are water treatment chemicals.
Water treatment is a matter of learning, and the results of water treatment will affect the economic benefits of the relevant company’s clients. Learning years to assess the water system and determine its potential for corrosion, fouling or contamination of various heat transfer surfaces requires years of industry experience.
IRO is very good at the solution. We have well-known experts in the industry (you will see his introduction at the bottom of this page). IRO can provide customized formulations and solutions to meet your requirements. Please contact our technical staff at +86 532 85027466 to find out your water treatment chemicals requirements.
Dispersants are substances that reduce the ability of solid (or liquid) particles to aggregate in a dispersion. It is a kind of surfactants. As an important type of interface active agent, the dispersant is widely used in many fields such as coal, pigments, coatings, plastics, inks, ceramics, paper, pesticides, medicine and water treatment.
Polycarboxylate dispersants are an emerging member of the family of polymeric dispersants. Polycarboxylate dispersants have long carbon chains, more active adsorption sites, and branches that can act as steric repulsion. This special molecular structure gives it good dispersion properties for pesticide suspension systems.
Polycarboxylate scale inhibitor has a good antibacterial effect. Polycarboxylic acid scale inhibitor has good scale inhibition on calcium carbonate scale. The use of polycarboxylic acid inhibitors for reverse osmosis systems is a good choice. Commonly used products of polycarboxylic acid inhibitors include polyacrylic acid and hydrolyzed maleic anhydride.
Phosphine-based corrosion inhibitors are similar in many respects to polyphosphates. It is not easy to hydrolyze, which is a significant advantage over the latter. The organophosphorus scale inhibitor is especially suitable for cooling water systems operating at high hardness, high pH, and high temperature. It has good corrosion inhibition performance and excellent resistance to calcium carbonate (magnesium).
Organic phosphine polymer corrosion inhibitor has the advantages of high efficiency and good stability. There are also a few reports on this. The organic phosphine polymer corrosion inhibitor may also be another direction for future development. The main types are phosphorus-containing polymers such as polyamides, polyacrylics, and polyethers.
Organic phosphonates are similar in many respects to polyphosphonates. They all have a low concentration of scale inhibition and have a corrosion inhibition effect on steel. However, organic phosphonates are not as hydrolyzed as polyphosphonates like polyphosphates. This is a great advantage for it. Organic phosphonates have now been successfully used in the control of corrosion and fouling of cooling water systems with higher hardness, temperature, and pH. Therefore, organic phosphonates are a class of scale inhibitors.
Water treatment fungicides are also known as bactericidal algaecides, sludge strippers or anti-sludge agents. A chemical that inhibits the growth of algae and microorganisms in the water to prevent the formation of microbial slime that is harmful to the system. Among them, quaternary ammonium salts are the best non-oxidizing fungicides. It has many functions such as sterilization, peeling and corrosion inhibition. Quaternary ammonium salt non-oxidizing fungicides have been widely used in oil field water, industrial cooling water and so on.
A chemical or complex that prevents or slows the corrosion of materials when the corrosion inhibitor is present in the environment (medium) in the proper concentration and form. It is used in small amounts (0.1% to 1%), but the effect is remarkable. Corrosion inhibitors are mainly used for neutral medium (boiler water, circulating cooling water), acidic medium (hydrochloric acid in addition to scale, acid leaching solution for rust removal of plating parts before plating) and gaseous medium (gas phase corrosion inhibitor). The greater the corrosion inhibition efficiency, the better the effect of inhibiting corrosion.
A representative product of the oxygen scavenger is carbohydrazide. Carbohydrazide is a white crystalline powder, very soluble in water. It is insoluble in alcohols, ethers, and benzene. Carbohydrazide is the most advanced material used in boiler water deoxidation in the world today. It has low toxicity, high melting point, and deoxidation efficiency far greater than the materials currently used.
Reverse osmosis is a pressure-driven membrane separation technique by selecting the function of a transmissive (semi-transmissive) membrane. When the pressure applied in the system is greater than the osmotic pressure of the influent solution, the water molecules continuously pass through the membrane. The past water flows into the central pipe through the production water channel. Impurities in the water (metal ions, organic matter, bacteria, viruses), etc., are trapped on the inlet side of the membrane. In this way, the purpose of separating purified water is achieved.
