Demineralization is concerned with the removal of all dissolved mineral matter from water.

Most common applications of demineralisation:

  • Treatment of Boiler Feed Water (BFW), in order to maintain high heat-transfer efficiency in the boiler by preventing deposition of precipitated scale and corrosion or deterioration of surfaces in contact with water.
  • When production of steam is related to power generation through a steam turbine, a higher water quality is mandatory to meet requirements of the turbine manufacturer.
  • Pharmaceutical,
  • Chemical and petrochemical sectors where it is used as a process fluid.

 Demineralization can be roughly schematised in three different steps:

On the market since 1958, ARTES can boast long experience with ion exchange and membrane processes. This comes from designing a vast range of plants, and from answering the most varied problems in all industrial sectors which has made Bono demineralisation plants the norm in the evolution of water treatment.
