Application of Dehumidifiers in Water & Wastewater Treatment Plants

All municipalities have installed water treatment systems that use pumping stations to facilitate water movement. One of the primary issues that these facilities face is recurrent condensation due to the dampness of the air. This causes damage to metal parts including holding, filtration and treatment tanks, pipes, the pump room apparatus, electrical gadgets, as well as the facility’s physical structure. The condensation and consequent issues result in more rapid deterioration of the facility.

Too much moisture leads to:

·       Damage 

·       Corrosion of the metallic components and paint deterioration

·       Electrical component failure

·       An environment that invites fungus, molds, and bacteria

 

Water & Wastewater Dehumidification

Installing dehumidifiers will help to curb the above aforementioned issues in water treatment facilities. Having dehumidifiers in place helps to uphold the room temperature of the dew point. Maintaining the heat enhances the protection of metals against corrosion. It also reduces moisture accumulation, and preserves the costly components of the water treatment facility.

What you need to understand here is that every water treatment company is uniquely designed, and therefore requires custom service. With a Uni-P Dry dehumidifier that has been specifically designed to offer constant humidity levels throughout the year, you can sit back and relax.

Dehumidification is critical in both water pumping stations, as well as water management units. This equipment also helps to control atmospheric conditions, and safeguard against condensation and oxidation.

 

Moisture Issues

It is very common for water treatment firms to experience condensation issues. While moisture may be invisible, it still manifests after condensing on pipes, walls, and various other surfaces. Whenever wet air and a wet surface come in contact, it turns the water in the atmosphere into liquid. To avoid condensation, you will need to ensure that the humidity is reduced by lowering the dew point.

Dehumidifiers create a condensation-free environment, protecting metallic components from oxidation. When the relative humidity level is more than 60 percent, oxidation issues manifest even more rapidly.

Bacteria growth is yet another issue that may occur if RH (relative humidity) rises to more than 70 percent. They both negatively affect the operation of water treatment plants in some way.

The bottom line is that you must ensure that your water & wastewater systems are in good shape through dehumidification. Having the right equipment in place, such as a Uni-P Dry dehumidifier, will help you to cut down on maintenance costs and help serve your customers more efficiently. 

Whether you are working for the government or a private water treatment plant, you do not want to see your plant deteriorate, or your customers complain about poor service. Get things right by deploying appropriate dehumidification gadgets around the facility.
