ProChem offers services that encompass every aspect of industrial water management. For us, maintaining systems and treatment programs is a key aspect of our total water management strategy.

Operations & Maintenance

Managing environmental and water programs can be an expensive and labor intensive task for any size facility. Permit violations, personnel requirements, systems and equipment design, monitoring costs, and so on are expensive liabilities for a manufacturer. Very few companies possess the appropriate personnel to evaluate, design, and implement a quality water management solution.

ProChem’s O&M solutions provide our customers with the perfect resolution to their operations challenges.

  • Day-to-day systems operation and maintenance (e.g., perform calibrations and routine maintenance, facilitate record keeping, and prepare discharge monitoring reports)
  • Inventory management and purchasing of operational supplies (e.g., chemicals, safety supplies, and spare and replacement parts)
  • Chemical program monitoring
  • High-purity water system monitoring
  • Web-based remote monitoring for water and wastewater treatment systems (including data analysis services)
  • Waste disposal management
  • Regulatory program assistance (e.g., waste storage area inspections, storm water sampling, and regulatory report preparation)
  • Pretreatment operations services (from contracted operations that require limited involvement from the customer to the full pretreatment operations and maintenance program management)

Outsourcing Wastewater Treatment Operations

ProChem offers onsite subcontracting options that allow facilities to:

  • Focus on the core business. Subcontracting lets companies focus on activities that are within their company expertise, alleviating the challenge of hiring skills outside their core business needs.
  • Increase efficiency. Facilities that handle all their own operational needs tend to have much higher R&D, marketing, and distribution expenses, and they must pass those costs on to their customers.
  • Reduce labor costs. Hiring and training staff for short-term or secondary projects can be very expensive. Subcontracting allows facilities to allocate payroll and benefits funds to employees working in areas that push the business forward.

ProChem can be your water management division. By subcontracting operations from ProChem, our customers receive trained water treatment professionals backed by our entire team of experts in every aspect of industrial water management.

Evolve and Grow

Successful subcontracting of a water or wastewater treatment system requires a constant commitment to analysis and improvement as technology and regulatory requirements change. The ProChem team is constantly searching for efficiency gains, technology improvements, and discharge reduction opportunities for our customers.

Portable Exchange Deionization

ProChem's portable exchange deionization (PEDI) columns utilize nuclear-grade mixed bed ion-exchange resins. The regeneration process, quality assurance, and quality control ensure that consistent and high-quality resins are delivered to the customer every time. We provide our customers with quality services at a competitive cost:

  • Column tracking
  • Frequent resin testing
  • Microbiological monitoring
  • Regeneration systems sterilization procedures

We work with you to develop a system that is designed specifically for your needs, and each system's components are determined based on your specific requirements.

PEDI columns are ideal for the following applications:

  • Electronics
  • Laboratory pure water
  • Painting
  • Metal finishing
  • Printing
  • Boilers
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Make-up water

We offer multiple sizes of the following media:

  • Mixed bed
  • Separate bed
  • Activated carbon (acid washed)
  • Activated carbon (standard rinsed)


We offer rental or lease programs, which require no capital investment. PEDI columns eliminate the need to store or handle chemicals. Our experienced service technicians will deliver, install, and maintain the vessels, including sanitation and regeneration.

The portable exchange deionization columns feature monitoring and process controls:

  • Resisitivity/conductivity monitors, controls, and alarms
  • Flow meters
  • Pressure sensors
  • Silica
  • Total organic carbon
  • pH
  • Dissolved oxygen
  • Metals

ProChem is a single source for the entire PEDI column system, including replacement parts and consumables, such as:

  • Cartridge and bag filters
  • UV light bulbs and quartz tubes
  • Activated carbon media
  • Calibration standards
