Industrial water

Whether in the chemical industry, in autoclaves, in paper manufacturing or in large-scale power plants, water plays a central role in industry in the form of process, cooling and boiler water.

Depending on their sources, river water and deep well water often have very different properties. With hard water, there is the risk of sedimentation in pipes, and with soft water, it has a corrosive effect. Other waters feature variations in regard to the substances they contain. Particularly forecological and financial reasons, a major consideration is the avoidance of pollution, contamination, corrosion and sedimentation of the pipe system. Thanks to their dispersing, stabilizing and corrosion-inhibiting properties, Budenheim’s cooling-water products are used as an effective and economical method of preventing these undesired effects.

Corrosion protection

Corrosion in cooling water is caused by many factors. It is, therefore, essential to treat the water in order to protect against corrosion.… more

Hardness stabilisation

Limescale dissolved in water precipitates in cooling water as deposits and builds up on pipe walls. This leads to operating problems and high maintenance costs.… more

Antifouling and dispersing

Deposits of eroded limescale, fine sand, turbid substances and microorganisms from water bodies, or pollen in pipeline networks are common pollutants and are known as … more

Preventing contamination

Once fouling has already occurred, the deposits offer the perfect breeding ground for microbes. These form a layer on pipe walls - with costly consequences.… more
