Cooling water treatment

You want to be sure that your cooling water system functions properly during the production process. After all, this is the only way to achieve optimal production. Grünbeck offers tailor-made solutions for closed cooling systems and open cooling systems.

What is cooling water treatment?

Cooling water treatment ensures that the cooling water system you use for the production process functions properly. Our cooling water treatment installation combats limescale, corrosion and microbial growth, and ensures that heat is removed properly, water loss is reduced, and chemicals are used less.

What are the benefits of cooling water treatment?

The optimal cooling water treatment can consist of a combination of:

This mix of water treatments combats limescale, corrosion and microbial growth. We then desalinate the water using a reverse osmosis installation (RO installation). These treatments minimise the waste water and the amount of chemicals, thus making your production process more sustainable.

Can cooling water treatment be applied to any type of cooling system?

The exact design of the cooling water treatment system depends, among other things, on the type of cooling system you use. Grünbeck offers tailor-made chilled water solutions for closed cooling systems and open cooling systems. Our professionals will always work with you to determine the application, options and challenges for your specific situation so you get exactly the water treatment system you need. You are, therefore, always assured of optimum operation and high reliability of your cooling water system.

Chemical water treatment programmes

We put together our chemical water treatment programme for each system and application in order to achieve optimum results. We also support you in its application and regularly check whether everything is still going according to plan.   

Our water treatment, your solution

Each of our water treatment systems is unique and extensively tested before it leaves the production site. This means that it is fully adapted to the application in your organisation and guaranteed to work.


In this way, we help you to get the best out of your product, your process or your service. The only thing left to do after delivery is to connect the water supply and plug it in.

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.

You want to be sure that your cooling water system functions properly during the production process. After all, this is the only way to achieve optimal production. Grünbeck offers tailor-made solutions for closed cooling systems and open cooling systems.

Waterbehandeling voor proceswater van Grünbeck Waterbehandeling

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.
