In the pharmaceutical industry, the removal of dissolved gases from water is a critical step in the water treatment process. However, it is essential to select the appropriate method of removing these gases, as the wrong choice can have detrimental effects on vital process water equipment such as steam boilers and distillation columns. Failure to address high levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the water can lead to the formation of carbonic acid, which corrodes and damages both the steam boiler tubes and distillation columns. To mitigate these risks, the implementation of a degasification tower or "Degasifier" is crucial, as it effectively removes dissolved gases like hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2) to acceptable levels below 7 parts per billion (ppb).

Utilizing a degasification tower offers a cost-effective solution to reduce and eliminate gases in the water stream. In comparison, alternative methods such as reverse osmosis (RO) membranes require additional steps, including pH adjustment, to achieve similar results. The conversion of carbon dioxide (CO2) into carbonates can result in increased membrane fouling and elevated capital costs for the RO system. By implementing a degasification system, businesses can achieve optimal performance, minimize membrane fouling, and benefit from cost savings in both capital and operational expenses.

DeLoach Industries, Inc. recognizes the critical importance of pharmaceutical water processes and offers comprehensive solutions to ensure the quality and efficiency of water treatment. With over six decades of experience, DeLoach Industries has established itself as a trusted leader in the industry, specializing in the design, fabrication, and development of advanced water treatment equipment and systems.

Hydrogen sulfide gas, known for its foul odor and corrosive nature, poses a significant challenge in water treatment. DeLoach Industries provides cutting-edge solutions for the removal of hydrogen sulfide gas, guaranteeing clean and odor-free water for pharmaceutical applications. By addressing this issue, businesses can maintain the integrity of their pharmaceutical processes and ensure the highest quality of water.

Water turbidity, characterized by suspended particles that cause cloudiness, is another concern in pharmaceutical water treatment. DeLoach Industries offers innovative filtration technologies to effectively eliminate particles and achieve crystal-clear water. These advanced filtration systems play a vital role in safeguarding the purity of the water used in pharmaceutical processes, ensuring the integrity of the final products.

PFOAs (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) in water have raised significant concerns due to their potential health risks. DeLoach Industries remains at the forefront of research and regulations surrounding PFOAs, delivering state-of-the-art solutions to remove these substances and ensure the delivery of safe and compliant pharmaceutical-grade water.

Maintaining the appropriate pH levels in water is crucial for achieving optimal water quality. pH plays a critical role in various industries, including wastewater treatment, where maintaining the desired pH range is vital for efficient treatment processes. DeLoach Industries offers expertise in pH adjustment and provides advanced technologies and tailored solutions to ensure precise pH control in pharmaceutical water treatment.

Accurate flow measurement is a fundamental aspect of water treatment systems as it enables businesses to monitor and control water flow rates effectively. DeLoach Industries offers cutting-edge flow measurement solutions, ensuring reliable data and optimal performance in pharmaceutical water treatment processes.

The ion exchange process is widely recognized as an effective method for removing contaminants from water. It involves the exchange of ions between a solid resin and the water, resulting in the removal of unwanted ions and the enhancement of water quality. DeLoach Industries specializes in the design and manufacture of advanced ion exchange systems, delivering superior performance and meeting the stringent requirements of pharmaceutical water treatment.
