Demineralization (DM) Water: Industry Applications and Challenges

Updated: May 6

Water is an essential resource for various industrial and commercial processes, but not all water is created equal. In many applications, the presence of impurities and minerals in water can cause significant problems, affecting both the quality of products and the efficiency of processes. Demineralization, or DM, is the solution to this problem. 

The definition of Demineralization is a process in which any salts (e.g., potassium, chlorine, magnesium) and ions (cations and anions) are removed from water to make it suitable for home or industrial purposes. - Corrosionpedia

In this blog, we will explore the critical need for water demineralization plants in industrial and commercial settings and the role of Advanced Watertek in providing reliable water treatment plants and solutions.

The Critical Need & Applications of Water Demineralisation for Industrial Plants

Water impurities, such as minerals and ions, can have a detrimental impact on industrial processes and product quality. These impurities can lead to scaling, corrosion, and other operational issues.

Water demineralization becomes essential to ensure the reliability and efficiency of various applications, including but not limited to:

Power Refineries:

  • DM water is vital in power plants to prevent scale formation and corrosion in boilers, cooling systems, and turbines. An example is a Demineralization techniques for Nuclear Power Plants.

  • Challenges are scale and corrosion can reduce heat transfer efficiency, increase maintenance costs, and lead to system failures.

  • Solution: Advanced Watertek's system for demineralisation plants effectively prevents scale and corrosion, ensuring power plant efficiency and reliability.

Wastewater Reuse:

  • Treating wastewater for industrial or agricultural reuse often requires demineralization to remove contaminants effectively.

  • The challenge is treating wastewater for reuse which requires efficient contaminant removal and sustainability.

  • Solution: Advanced Watertek's demineralised water plants efficiently remove contaminants, promoting resource-efficient and sustainable wastewater treatment.

Electronics & Pharmaceutical Industries:

  • The stringent purity requirements of these industries demand demineralized water for manufacturing processes and laboratory use.

  • Challenges include maintaining ultra-pure water quality, meeting regulatory standards, and ensuring consistent supply.

  • Solution: Advanced Watertek's custom DM plants, powered by RO technology, provide precise filtration, stringent quality control, and reliable, uninterrupted supply.

Sustainability Considerations for DM Systems:

  • Resource Efficiency: Advanced Watertek's RO Systems for DM water plants minimize water consumption and focus on energy efficiency.

  • Responsible Disposal: Advanced Watertek adheres to responsible waste management practices.
