Electroplating

Puretech Water Systems (UK) Ltd offers a wide range of reverse osmosis plants to the Electroplating industry.

In particular, reverse osmosis systems are successfully applied to a variety of finishing operations. On the whole, this includes several types of zinc, nickel and copper in electroplating.

The Solution

Markedly, reverse osmosis water is an excellent solvent. Due to this, a good grade of reverse osmosis water is required for rinsing metal work in electroplating. This is in order to remove tramp metals for fear that they build up in baths and swills. Subsequently, this affects conductivity. Thereupon, reducing conductivity with reverse osmosis therefore becomes an integral part of the electroplating process. Moreover, poor conductivity inevitably has a major impact on covering power, throwing power and roughness. All are equally important facets of the plating quality in electroplating.

Therefore, it deep cleans metal work which is being prepared for treatment. Equally, once the metal work has been cleaned, reverse osmosis water is also used as a final rinse. As a result, this washes away any excess solutions leaving a consistent, clear and streak free final product.

Conclusion

Over the years Puretech Water Systems (UK) Ltd has worked explicitly with numerous commercial plating facilities. Owing to the fact that we have designed, installed and commissioned many bespoke reverse osmosis plants over the years.

In addition to our own plants, we also maintain many other existing reverse osmosis plants within the electroplating industry.

What is a Water Softener?

A water softener is used to remove hardness from the incoming towns mains water supply.

For instance, this is achieved by removing the calcium and magnesium ions. These ions would otherwise cause scaling within a water system. Scaling can present itself in many ways.

 

Below is a list of the most common effects of scaling;

  • Water heaters scaling impedes on their ability to heat water efficiently.
  • Scaling on glassware such as shower screens and glasses is unhygienic and cosmetically unappealing.
  • The scaling on tap outlets and scale build up within water holding tanks can have detrimental effects on systems.

Water softeners remove the calcium and magnesium ions and traps them on its filter surface which acts as a magnet.

Therefore, we exchange these calcium and magnesium ions for sodium ions which, in turn, creates softened water. Summing up, this results in water ready for consumption.

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. So, 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.

On the other hand, the outlet is where the rejected water (Concentrate) is sent directly to drain.

In some cases, this concentrate water can be re-circulated back to the front of the reverse osmosis plant and re-processed. In conclusion, this particular process can significantly reduce water wastage.
