Producing Water for Injection (WFI) and Pure Steam

Producing Water for Injection (WFI) and Pure Steam

Introducing a raw material which is chemically and microbiologically extremely pure, often required in large quantities and has to be generated on-​site, directly from available potable water; Water for Injection (WFI).


At BWT Africa, we develop systems that transform drinking water into BWT Purified Water, Water for Injections and Pure Steam, and which ensure safe storage and distribution. We also provide services that guarantee the safe and reliable operation of the system for decades ahead.

The Harmful Effects of Hard Water

The Harmful Effects of Hard Water harmful effects of Hard water

If this was a tale involving the good and bad guys of water hardness; the real culprits would be the compounds of calcium and magnesium carbonates in the water. Their presence in high concentrations can have damaging effects on machinery, equipment, and appliances in industrial and commercial applications.

When hard water is heated, calcium and magnesium carbonate deposits form along exposed surfaces, which lead to clogging of pipes or coating of heating elements. The result is a decreased life span of machinery and equipment, increased operational costs as a result of insulation effects of scale and reduction in pipe bore, requiring more energy to pump water through the network.
