Our solutions for industry
Whether water is an ingredient in food manufacturing, or a vital component in an engineering process, its quality affects the production of countless products within the industry sector. Prolonging the life of expensive equipment and increasing return on investment can be facilitated through optimised water treatment. Lubron is an expert in process water and can provide advice and assistance in obtaining the best solution for you.
Understanding your business needs
You know your business best. Once we talk to you, we’ll quickly determine what water treatment and purification technology is appropriate for your needs. The emphasis will always be on bespoke solutions, because no two applications are ever exactly the same. Additionally, we focus on efficiency. We want to make sure that your investment in Lubron is the right solution for your needs, and so adds value to your business.
Understanding the business of water
Although, in the UK, potable water is generally well conserved and protected from contamination, it may not be suitable to meet the demands of many industrial and commercial applications. Controlling corrosion, scale and microbiological contamination in industrial water systems prolongs the life of equipment, helps to maximise productivity, and can improve the quality of manufactured products.
Here at Lubron we understand the importance of designing and applying the appropriate water treatment solution, creating the right water for each environment and application.
Scale free water
Calcium as well as other components, such as salts, dissolved and undissolved metals can leave marks and stains on a number of surfaces. In such cases,using soft water leads to less cleaning materials being used in any industry, which not only saves costs but also optimises the life span of the equipment.
Borehole water treatment
Iron removal from groundwater and borehole supplies calls for a knowledge of both the chemical reactions involved and how to engineer systems to ensure these can work effectively. Un-aerated groundwater usually contains dissolved iron salts. Introducing oxygen or air to water causes the iron to oxidise and precipitate. Under correct conditions it can be filtered and removed from the water.
For consistent high water quality, Lubron delivers solutions which significantly improve the taste of potable water and eliminate any unpleasant odours.
Cooling and boiler water
Cooling towers and boilers are used in most industries. Calcium deposits and corrosion are commonplace in those systems, leading to high energy costs as a result of the reduced conductivity. In the worst case scenario, this can cause complete failure of the cooling and heating equipment and potentially, loss of production. To improve efficiency and safety, and guarantee a longer system life span, the composition of the water in use should be strictly controlled.Read more about cooling and boiler water

Depending on water quality requirements, a number of techniques can be applied in industry.
Lubron supplies a wide range of water softeners for different environments. The right water softening solution can eliminate scale deposits in equipment, pipes and production process. Additionally, in cooling and boiler systems, the service life of products can be significantly extended by preventing corrosion and scale deposits.Water softening
Filtration occurs in nature when rain water passes between many layers of sand and gravel. The gravel and sand act as a filter to collect solid particles and therefore leave the water pure. This process has been adapted to achieve the same effect in industry and is particularly beneficial in healthcare, manufacturing and domestic applications.Filtration
Salts and minerals can be found in pipes and in spring water. In order to treat this issue, water is desalted, a process also referred to as demineralisation, using reverse osmosis (RO). To achieve purified water, the RO water receives a secondary treatment with electro-deionisation (EDI).Demineralisation
Lubron provides the expertise and solutions to help mitigate the risks associated with microbiological control. Our products, consultancy services, accredited courses, chemical water treatments, and the latest technology, including UV-disinfection and reverse osmosis, ensure a safe and healthy environment with optimal equipment and system reliability.Microbiological control
