Plant & Equipment

HydroChem Group is a leading supplier of high-quality water treatment plant and equipment. We associated with some of the largest commercial and OEM companies in the UK, North America, and Europe.

We work across all sectors in the water treatment industry to solve, process and manufacturing challenges. designing, supplying, installing, servicing, and maintaining quality.

HydroChem Group offers bespoke, all inclusive water treatment solutions to industry, commercial and domestic applications with new installations and decommissioning of old systems. These include Filtration, Water softeners, RO units, De-ionisers, chemical dosing units, Ultraviolet (UV), and sample coolers among others.

Spare parts and replacement components are available for many different makes for market satisfaction.

Water Treatment Equipment Installation, Repair and Maintenance Service 

Unlike many suppliers, HydroChem has its own team of skilled installation, repair, and maintenance engineers operating throughout the UK.

The continued reliability of your equipment can be ensured by the professional installation and planned through life support maintenance contract for that equipment. This may be monthly quarterly annual or bi-annual servicing depending on the needs of the client or plant.  This enables the system to be efficient in identifying the requirement before problems arise and for routine replacement spares to be supplied.

Through life support as it implies keeps on top of the equipment for all its working life and all existing plant may be adapted to this service as an upgrade. HydroChem Group has many spares for all main and some minor water treatment plant and all suppliers are used as the need to keep critical processes operational are paramount.

As your dedicated water treatment specialist, HydroChem Group supply both off the shelf and a fully bespoke supply chain for all plant and equipment that is used in the industry.

If you have an existing piece of plant or equipment in need of repair or maintenance, contact us and we will assess the situation and provide relevant advice.

UV Disinfection Systems for Water 

UV systems are a truly non-chemical way to disinfect water and is the ideal process to kill harmful pathogens at the point of use such as taps and faucets or to control microbial growth in recirculating water systems. Usually coupled with a water filter to stop suspended solids and colour affecting the UV radiated light, the units usually run continuously for up to one year before a lamp/bulb change is required.

From small domestic to large industrial and commercial units HydroChem Group can advise and design a scheme to suit. Installation, servicing, and the supply of the UV bulbs for any manufacturer is available and our engineers are available to meet the service requirements for any model.

Contact our technical department for more information and a quote.

Hydrocyclones 

A hydrocyclone separator is an ideal solution to remove suspended solids from recirculating water in processes.

Using centrifugal action of the water flow through the unit heavier than water solids are removed and collected in a dirt bowl for disposal. Ideal for inline cleaning of heating and chiller circuits.

It’s especially useful in the operation of cooling towers and cooling systems and as a side stream filter, it improves the efficiency and flows which increases the performance of a water system saving costs and downtime with blockages and keeping the tower pond basin cleaner.

Reverse Osmosis Systems 

A Reverse Osmosis or (RO) system produces near-demineralised or deionised water quality. RO removes between 95-98% of the (TDS) total dissolved solids or minerals from the feedwater. This water is classed as pure.

This dramatically reduces the problems with scale and deposition for example in boiler waters reducing blowdown, saving energy, and running costs along with other critical processes.

Used in conjunction with a de-ioniser RO water is ideal for pharmaceutical production, micro-electronics, and any application where mineral-free water is required for process washing of fine chemicals.

HydroChem Group designs and supplies a range of packaged and bespoke RO systems for both industry and domestic use. A full range of spares consumables, anti-scalents, and membrane cleaning chemicals are available.

 

Water Softeners 

Our cost-effective range of reliable, efficient industrial, commercial, and domestic water softeners overcome the problems of hard water and troublesome limescale that affects all water supplies.

From a small domestic cabinet softener of 8-litre capacity to a stand-alone simplex or duplex unit of up to 750 litres and above, size and flow is available to suit your requirements. Technical staff are available to calculate to needs along with the sizing and footprint to suit the siting and installation of the scheme with salt usage and servicing of the softeners. Contact our technical team for more information. 

Water Filters 

We supply a comprehensive range of water filters and systems to deal with difficult water contaminants including: 

  • Multi-media and sand filters for removing suspended solids and silt
  • Iron and manganese removal filters
  • pH Correction filters
  • Nitrate removal plant
  • Activated Carbon filters for taste and odour and organics removal
  • Cartridge and bag filters
  • Backwash Filters
  • Carbon filters 

So, whatever your water filtration needs, contact us today.  

Demineralisers and De-ionisers 

The mineral content of waters can be removed by ion exchange resins which are utilised to remove these minerals or demineralise which leaves the water near to pure.

De-ionisers are employed to purify water for many uses in industry and pharmaceutical manufacturing of products. The smaller units usually use a mixed bed disposable cation/anion resin mix and can be used in laboratories and for producing battery top-up waters. Other uses are for window and glass washing, filling cooling systems where a low TDS or chlorine, salt-free water is required.

Used with reverse osmosis and as a RO/DI scheme, it is a low cost environmentally safe way to produce upwards of thousands of litres of pure water.

Equipment Range

The range of Water treatment equipment covers many applications and uses. The design, supply, installation of a water treatment scheme may employ one or more of the items of water treatment shown below.

Customer and client needs are tailored to meet exacting standards as laid down by regulatory bodies and meets stringent guidelines for use and applications.

Effective water treatment often requires a multi-range of equipment in combination to provide a total solution. HydroChem Group can offer a full range of water treatment package equipment to suit all needs. HydroChem Group also works with all major manufactures within the industry and can service, repair, or replace parts and major components.
