Building Services

Puretech Water Systems (UK) Ltd offers a wide range of reverse osmosis and water softening plant to the building services industry.

We provide our clients water treatment solutions for humidification, steam boiler feed, glass washing and domestic water services.

We can design bespoke systems as well as offering water softeners and reverse osmosis plant from our existing comprehensive portfolio.

The focus within the building services industry is scale reduction and therefore most commercial facilities will require a water softener as a minimum .

How does Reverse Osmosis work?

Reverse Osmosis is a high-pressure water process which forces water to be treated through a semi permeable reverse osmosis membrane. The membrane has two outlet channels. One being the permeate water (Purified) which passes the heavily filtered water onto the point of use application. This purified water typically has around 98% of the incoming contaminants removed, such as dissolved salts, bacteria, organics and pyrogens. The other outlet is where the rejected water (Concentrate) is sent directly to drain, or in some cases this concentrate water can be re-circulated back to the front of the reverse osmosis plant and re-processed to reduce water wastage.

What is a Water Softener?

A water softener is used to remove hardness from the incoming towns mains water supply. This is achieved by removing the calcium and magnesium ions which would otherwise cause scaling within a water system. Scaling can present itself in many ways, some of the most common are scaling of water heaters reducing their ability to heat water efficiently, scaling on glassware such as shower screens and glasses, scaling on tap outlets and scale build up within water holding tanks.

A water softener removes the calcium and magnesium ions and traps them on its filter surface which acts as a magnet. It then exchanges these calcium and magnesium ions for sodium ions which then creates soft water which exits the water softener ready for consumption.

Benefits of Reverse Osmosis water systems

  • Purified Water without any scaling effect
  • Major reduction in scrapped heating elements through scaling effect
  • A consistent grade of treated water
