Commercial Water Purification Inspection And Troubleshooting

Linda Edwards

Large-scale water purification systems require constant monitoring and maintenance to meet safety standards in most industries. Even if you trust your purification system, there are a lot of strange impurities that could suddenly ruin your entire operation. With a few inspection and troubleshooting techniques, you can be prepared for critical failures that would otherwise stop water purification for days.

Water Filter Damage Assessment And Replacement

Many larger water purification systems rely on more than a single filter. If you're using a reservoir system to store and forward purified water, you'll need to clean the reservoir periodically in case of spillover. For in-line filters such as charcoal filters located on taps, the filter itself becomes the main point of repair.

Filters have a specific mesh or hole design that is small enough for water to pass through at a certain rate while blocking out specific foreign bodies. For drinking water, charcoal filters (sometimes with other substances for purification that are later extracted) are used in order to split off larger sediment.

For industrial processes that require slightly less strict separation, larger filter meshes may be present to keep plants and insects out of a pond, river or lake supply as the water enters the system. 

Inspect the filter mesh carefully and look for any drastic changes to the mesh size. If the mesh is torn, larger contaminants can stream through at higher rates. Torn filter mesh needs to be replaced immediately to avoid contamination. Don't try to patch the mesh unless in an absolute emergency, as the patch may tear quickly due to uneven pressure.

Temporary Measures For An Emergency

If the water purification system is down, consider which part is broken. If the filter is broken, you may still have a perfectly usable water transit system to pump water for later purification.

Although not applicable for all drinking purposes, boiling water is a good basic step towards water purification. If you're able to acquire a more sophisticated method, water purification tablets made of iodine crystals. Keep in mind that if you're using this water as an emergency supply, strict measurement standards need to be in place to avoid overdose. Iodine allergy sufferers need to be notified if this method is in use.

If the filtration system is working, but not the water pumping or transit, use a slow trickle of the water through the filter to fill barrels or buckets for later use. Reusable water cooler containers are great for passing out drinking water through businesses or giving to industrial lines that need a steady supply.

Exploring Oil Collection Practices

Explore oil collection equipment and practices. Oil is a natural resource that people use for power. Oil is also used to make several different products, including lubricants for machinery and vehicles. The way workers pull oil out of the ground is a very interesting process. Furthermore, transportation and refinery practices really capture my interest. I hope you will also develop an interest in this industry by following my site. I will discuss the different types of equipment used to gather, transport and process oil. I will also talk about the various practices, including safety requirements, used on these sites. I hope you will learn a lot about oil industry advancements by following my site. Please come back anytime you would like to learn more.
