BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. - May 30, 2014 - PRLog -- One hundred industrial and commercial businesses from across the United States were asked to identify which industrial water treatment services were most important to their business. Softening hard water received the majority vote, followed closely by the prevention of lime scale deposits.

Hard water minerals and lime scale buildup can result in a significant number of problems for industrial and commercial businesses, including clogged pipes and reduced efficiency of machinery. Water softeners use an ion exchange process to remove harsh calcium and magnesium from water, eliminating the ions responsible for both hard water spots and lime scale. Ion exchange is also used to produce high purity demineralized water, although the type of resin and regeneration chemicals are different.

After softening and lime scale prevention, industrial businesses ranked the filtration of other unwanted minerals as the next most important water treatment method. Complete sterilization and disinfection also ranked highly on the list, followed by a need to remove bacteria and microorganisms. The removal of anions from water, such as nitrates and sulfates, was ranked least important by those industrial and commercial businesses not in need of complete sterilization.

The biggest industrial and commercial needs identified by the survey are as follows (listed in descending order of importance):

# 1 Softening Hard Water
# 2 Preventing Lime Scale Deposits
# 3 Eliminating Unwanted Minerals
# 4 Complete Sanitation/Sterilization/Disinfection
# 5 Filtering Bacteria/Microorganisms
# 6 Filtering Dissolved Solids
# 7 Reducing Anions (i.e. Nitrates and Sulfates)

About This Survey: The statistics above were gathered from a May 2014 Industrial and Commercial Filtration Needs survey that was conducted by a third-party on behalf of WaterProfessionals® - www.WaterProfessionals.com   The survey was open to industrial or commercial businesses of all sizes.
