Water is the basis for life and a significant ingredient in many liquid products. It is also vital for many manufacturing processes.
Water quality requirements and specifications vary greatly depending on the application. After raw water has been treated and softened for example, additional filtration and purification are often required before the water can be safely used.
Centec produce a large range of water systems for variety of industries. From the production of paints and chemicals, to beer, drinks and personal care products, right through to the very highest requirements for sterile bio-pharmaceuticals production and semi-conductor manufacture.
