Happy St. Patrick's Day from ProChem, Inc.

Beer tastes better when it's made with RO water.

Breweries source their water just like any other manufacturer: from the city supply. That water is drinkable, of course. However, the taste isn't pure. To brew a beer with just the right taste that's true to the hop, you need to start with highly filtered water. Reverse Osmosis is the best way. And that green beer, well, the food coloring is manufactured using treated water too. #watermatters  

ProChem provides skid-mounted systems like this one for ease of delivery, installation, and servicing.

This particular system will treat incoming city water to an automotive manufacturing facility using twin bag filtration units. It features a custom fabricated skid and copper piping, both welded and fabricated in house by ProChem Technician, David Cole.

The system is automated and monitors pressure. If the pressure on the active bag filter unit reaches a high pressure differential, water will be directed automatically to the second bag filter; and an alert will be provided to the operator so that the bag filter can be changed out. This system will allow higher quality water to enter the production process, improving quality overall. It will be installed at the front end of the manufacturing process in a facility for which ProChem already provides wastewater treatment and reuse systems, chemical treatment programs and chemistry, and daily operations. We offer a wide array of skid-mounted filtration systems. Find out which one is right for your facility by contacting us today.

A facility in Boston, Massachusetts received a ProChem Metaloc (Metals-Selective Ion-Exchange) system.

The Metaloc system is a standalone, skid-mounted system that will remove lead and other water contaminates from wastewater generated from battery washing operations at the facility.

The system is set up to treat in batches at a flow rate of up to 6gpm. The treated water will be recirculated and reused, eliminating the need to discharge to the sanitary sewer system. The system is equipped with electronic sensors to monitor flow, conductivity, pressure, and water level with alarm capabilities. The columns are dual arrangement such that one set may be put in-service while the other set is being regenerated at the ProChem regeneration facility.
