Chemical water treatment

In order to counteract the negative effects of corrosion, limescale deposits, and the formation of biofilm, it may be necessary to chemically modify the properties of the water in addition to the mechanical pre-treatment. 

Our water treatment products are carefully formulated so they optimally protect your installation and maximise its lifespan.

Water treatment chemicals

Despite the many positive properties of water, such as good heat transfer and high availability, there are also some properties that are not so good for your installation. Some of these can be reduced or eliminated by proper mechanical pre-treatment, such as softening or desalination. However, this is not always possible or sufficient. In order to solve such problems as corrosion, limescale deposits, and microbial formation, it may be necessary to add chemical products to the water. Grünbeck’s experts will help you identify the problems and draw up the best treatment programme for your installation and application. Of course, this is done in close consultation with you.

Our treatment programmes

Cooling water treatment programmes can be roughly divided into three products:

  • Corrosion and limescale inhibitors
  • Dispersants
  • Biocides


Our corrosion and limescale inhibitors help protect your system against premature wear and tear and increased production costs or loss of efficiency.

Our dispersants prevent precipitation and deposits of limescale and other contaminants.

Our biocides ensure microbial growth and deposits are inhibited.

It goes without saying that good support and regular monitoring of the water treatment is in safe hands with us. Our experts schedule regular site visits and examine the water for all the relevant parameters. This is followed by recommendations and a report. So you are always fully informed about the quality of your water.

Would you like a high-quality water treatment installation with a long life span and high uptime, a solution that fits in 100% with your needs, and 24/7 service without fuss but a friendly tone?

Wateronthardingsinstallatie voor het ontharden van grondwater voor de industrie
Our water treatment installations often start with an industrial water softener. Pipes, fittings and installations last much longer when using a water softener. Choose a Grünbeck system and you’ll also be saving water and resources thanks to its low energy and salt consumption.

De-ironed water is better for the process, extends the life, and reduces malfunctions and defects in basically everything that this water is added to. Our deferrisation installations filter out not only iron, but also manganese and other undesirable odours and substances.

Omgekeerde osmose installatie voor gedemineraliseerd water voor de industrie
Thanks to its pure nature, demineralised water is ideal for the production of steam, boiler feed water, process water and central heating water. To demineralise water, we use reverse osmosis, or RO for short.

Waterbehandelingsinstallatie voor ultrapuur water (EDI)
Ultrapure water is created by further purifying or polishing water by means of EDI, also known as electro-deionisation. This sterile water is extremely suitable for high-pressure steam boilers and for the petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries.

Waterontharden voor thuis
In addition to water treatment for industry, we also soften water for people at home. The softliQ is the water softener that thinks for you and automatically adjusts itself to your water consumption at home. The innovative technology, with refined, low-maintenance materials, is packaged in a stylish, sleek design.

Each type of process water makes its own demands on the water and thus on the required water treatment. From de-ironing, softening, ultra-filtration and reverse osmosis (RO) to electro-deionisation (EDI), UV disinfection and/or an adjusted dosage.

Softening, de-ironing and demineralising are techniques we use to treat drinking water and/or well water. All three techniques remove undesirable substances from the water and make the water suitable for use as rinse water, either separately or in combination.

Ultrapure water is needed for the production of hydrogen. For the preparation of this ultrapure water, various high quality water treatment techniques are needed. We have all these techniques in our product range.
