Water is often called the universal solvent because it can dissolve most substances. This property is used for industrial and commercial cleaning applications. Generally, the purer the water (i.e. higher resistivity, low particulates, low bacteria, low TOC), the more aggressive the water’s cleaning capabilities and the more equipment is needed to produce it.
Nalco Pretreatment Solutions offers a complete line of pretreatment equipment. Depending upon the water quality required, the equipment selected may include: water softener systems, complete Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems, Deionization (DI) including portable exchange DI, filters and other membrane technologies. We match quality and quantity needs for every product. Using pressure, temperature and/or flow, the cleaning capabilities can be enhanced. Cleaning water is used in simple dunk tanks, cascading rinse tanks, spray nozzles, pressure washing equipment and/or ultrasonic systems.
