Auto-Backwashing Screen Filter

Aqua-Chem's Auto-Backwashing Screen Filters use a rigid or flexible screen to separate sand and other fine particles out of water. Screen filters are typically utilized as the first step in the purification process to protect the downstream equipment from being damaged by suspended solids. The auto-backwashing feature means that they automatically perform a self-cleaning without interrupting operation or causing unnecessary downtime.

Aqua-Chem Carbon Tower

Aqua-Chem Carbon Towers are part of the pre-treatment process which removes chlorine or chloramine before the water enters into a reverse osmosis membrane or vapor compression distiller. When it comes to daily operations, maintenance, and cleaning, Aqua-Chem’s smart design stands-out with multiple features that make these infrequent, but necessary tasks easier and faster.

254nm Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection


Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection inactivates pathogenic microorganism, such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Ultraviolet disinfection is environmentally friendly and produces no chemical by-products. UV transfers electromagnetic energy from a mercury arc lamp to an organism's genetic material (DNA and RNA). Ultraviolet lights are commonly referred to as 'germicidal' lamps thanks to their decades of use as a disinfectant for air, water, and nonporous surfaces.

Horizontal Spray Film VC Distiller

In terms of distillation, Vapor Compression, or VC, refers to Mechanical Vapor Compression (MVC) technology, which is utilized to impart energy (in the form of heat) to evaporated water (i.e. vapor) through centrifugal compression.  Vapor Compression is much more efficient in distilling water compared to older technology, which requires massive amounts of thermal energy input (i.e. plant steam, electrical heaters) applied over a multi-pass evaporation/condensation process.  Click below to learn how Aqua-Chem utilizes Vapor Compression in the production of Water-for-Injection for the Pharmaceutical & Biotech Industries.
