Glass Manufacturing

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

Our clients within this industry require a good grade of reverse osmosis water for their production processes.

This is particularly important on sealed units (double glazing) where the internal surfaces of the glass need to be crystal clear before they are sealed as once they are sealed any staining on the glass cannot be removed and would result in the glass being scrapped.

We maintain many reverse osmosis systems within this industry ensuring that they are kept running at their optimum and therefore the production facilities are running efficiently.

We design, manufacture, install and maintain many reverse osmosis and water softening systems for this industry.

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.

Benefits of Reverse Osmosis water systems

  • Purified Water without any scaling effect on glass panes
  • Major reduction in scrapped glass through poor water quality
  • A consistent grade of purified water
