Water treatment for industrial sites

Guardian provides water treatment services for large-scale industrial sites, including factories and other manufacturing facilities containing HVAC equipment such as cooling towers and steam boilers. We are also experienced at implementing bespoke treatment programmes for your varied and unique process water systems.

Guardian Water Treatment has an expert support team on-hand to help building and facilities managers of industrial premises meet the requirements of Approved Code of Practice L8 2013 – The Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems (ACoP L8), protect pupils and staff, maintain drinking water quality, while saving the costs and damaged reputations that poor water hygiene can bring.

We can consult on all types of industrial site, at the construction stage, providing pre-commissioning cleaning, legionella risk assessments, subsequent water treatment and ongoing water system maintenance. Guardian uses traditional chemical water treatment as well as cutting-edge non-chemical treatment, Wallenius Advance Oxidation Technology (AOT); a safe, environmentally friendly and cost-effective option for controlling bacterial growth, minimising environmental impact by reducing chemical usage.

With downtime not an option for these buildings, Guardian’s water treatment teams work around the clock, to ensure costs implications are kept to a minimum.

Air hygiene for industrial sites

Industrial premises all control air temperature and flow via heating and ventilation systems, air handling and air conditioning units. In this environment, bacteria, unwanted particles and allergens can be a problem, affecting the efficiency and safe running of plant, while causing health issues for building occupants known as ‘Sick Building Syndrome’ (SBS). Guardian provides air hygiene services, to keep air clean and air movement systems working efficiently, preventing SBS.

Many industrial premises, particularly in the food manufacturing sector, also contain kitchens, and Guardian delivers kitchen extract cleaning to prevent fire, odour, vermin and hygiene risks. We can assess a kitchen extract system to identify any problems and then provide on-going kitchen extract cleaning – an essential part of any commercial or public building’s health and safety policy. Guardian understands the time constraints of these often high-pressure environments, so kitchen extract services can be carried out at a time to suit, ensuring downtime is kept to a minimum.

Guardian appreciates that every industrial site is unique and can tailor its approach accordingly, delivering bespoke water treatment or air hygiene services, depending on a specific situation.
