Bespoke Water Treatment for High-Tech Manufacturing

Client Needs

Based in the north of England, the client produces advanced mixed-signal semiconductors and digital components for product applications including radio, security and power management. The manufacturing process depends on a reliable supply of ultra-pure water to avoid contamination during fabrication, but the existing water system at the plant was identified as a limiting factor on production volume and was deemed to be unreliable due to age. 

Our Solution

The new installation comprises a duplex IONSOFTTM Mega water softener and a sodium bisulphite dosing system...

The Result

The total third stream solution is capable of processing water up to a maximum flow rate of 72 m3/hr to ensure reliable, high-volume supply. Adding this capacity to that of the existing streams ensures that water supply will no longer represent a limiting factor to production at the site.
