Crystal clear, turbidity-free rinse water with the latest generation of green technology.

Rinsing/Immersion BathThe water storage in rinsing and immersion baths or washing/rinsing machines inevitably is polluted increasingly, on the one hand by the introduction of pollutants during the rinsing process, on the other hand by concentration of minerals (rising salinity) through refilling in order to replace evaporation or carryover losses. In addition, the open, most often hand-warm baths are subject to severe contamination by microorganisms from the ambient air. Frequent water changes and laborious cleaning are the consequence.

The solution: Oxidative Water Treatment (AOP, advanced oxidation processes)!

ProtabsLIQUITECH FOM is a highly porous permanent filter granulate with an active AOP-coating, which acts oxidizing and catalytic with all substances entrained in the water.
AOP means that even solutes such as the heavy metals lead, copper and zinc, as well as iron, manganese, arsenic, etc. are converted into solids. In addition, all microorganisms such as bacteria, algae and fungi, are eliminated by the strong oxidizing effect of the surface coating. With a filtration fineness of 2-3 microns (compared to about 50 microns with filter sand), these impurities are filtered as well as all other suspended matter, and very high filtration rates of 95-99% are achieved over the entire pH range.

The oxidizing effect of the material is refreshed in each backwashing by adding PROTABS OXY in the rinse water, thus remaining unspoiled throughout the whole service life of the filter granulate.

ProtabsPROTABS OXY release so-called Hydroxyl Radicals (OH-groups), whose strongly oxidizing effect eliminates all sorts of bacteria, legionella, algae, amoeba, fungi, protozoa and other microorganisms. PROTABS OXY with their high oxidation potential of 2.8V have a much stronger effect than most common biocides such as chlorine (1.4V), chlorine dioxide (1.5V) hydrogen peroxide (1.8V) and even ozone (2.1V). Other than almost every other biocide, PROTABS OXY leave no disinfection by-products (DBP), and have much lower corrosive side-effects on metals, plastics and sealings.

PROTABS OXY are not subject to specific labelling obligations, neutral in handling and non-toxic!

Keeping rinsing and immersion baths clean with the latest generation of green technology.

The final process of rinsing or dipping after workpiece cleaning or degreasing has to make it. But this final bath, this last rinsing brings up the decision of when the right time to change the water has come, because this is where the boundary between a proper or an inproper painting or coating is located.

Lifetime extension and quality improvement of rinsing baths using the example of a workpiece cleaning system:
Solid material, dispersed and dissolved pollutants and substances from cleaning baths can eventually also be found in rinsing baths or within the rinsing water storage, due to carryover. As a result of this, the rinsing water dulls at a very early stage, leaving its residues even at the components only recently cleaned. The degree of the rinsing water’s purity determines the quality of a subsequent painting or coating decisively.
Only with an active filtration, a constant water quality can be achieved over the bath's entire lifetime.
With LIQUITECH FOM, solids and dispersed pollutants are almost entirely removed through the extremely high filter sharpness of the filter granulate. In addition, also dissolved organic compounds (oils, greases and solvents) are removed through the AOP technology (advanced oxidizing processes). Due to these filtration and oxidation processes, the degree of purity of the rinsing bath or water storage is kept constant for a considerably much longer phase, as well as the purity of the component surfaces. With the regular addition of the disinfectant PROTABS OXY, the development of microorganisms will also be prevented effectively, without introducing any substances into the rinsing bath that may leave residues on components, as for instance chlorine tablets do. 

To achieve a really optimal water quality, rinsing baths and systems should always be refilled with desalinated water in order to avoid residues of substances dissolved in the water on the cleaned parts, especially water hardness. Desalinated water also has a far greater solvent power than regular tap water, and directly absorbs displaced substances, so that it is considerably more precisely possible to determine the right time for a water change with conductivity metering.

Your way to enduringly clean rinsing water:

Integrate a bypass pump circuit with a LIQUITECH FOM filter into your system. The filter media is regularly reactivated by adding PROTABS OXY when backwashing. According to system conditions, additional adding directly into the system water is recommended.
The filling armature, according to system conditions and requirements, should be retrofit with a SCALIMEX scale protection filter or a DEWAPURE demineralising filter.
