Process water; a multitude of treatment techniques

Process water

What is process water? This question cannot be answered unambiguously. Within the industry, process water is used as cooling water, as a product, as a solvent or by means of transport.

Water treatment

Process water is prepared from tap water, groundwater or surface water. Depending on the source, RWB applies various purification techniques to treat the water and to make it suitable for the application.


Process water is mainly found in factories where products are manufactured. Process water is used as:

  • Rinse water for cleaning products or installations
  • Cooling water for cooling installations
  • Product water for drinks and food
  • Means of transport to transport products within industrial processes
