Water Treatment

Water treatment is any process that improves the quality of water to make it more acceptable for a specific end-use. The end use may be drinking, industrial water supply, irrigation, river flow maintenance, water recreation or many other uses, including being safely returned to the environment. Water treatment removes contaminants and undesirable components, or reduces their concentration so that the water becomes fit for its desired end-use. Storage tanks and water pumps are a vital part of the water treatment process from the storage of water and hygienic chemicals level and pressure monitoring is vital to consumer and production safety.

Irrigation systems

Adding a flow switch or pressure sensor to your irrigation system may prevent expensive damage.  Almost any major maintenance problem in an irrigation system will cause a unusual pressure level or flow level in your irrigation system. Therefore pressure and/or flow monitoring is a good way to detect problems.  Most of the time the response to a abnormal pressure or flow level would be to shut down the system, or possibly to shut down the current valve zone and try another one. A very low pressure may indicate that perhaps the pump is broken or an intake screen is clogged, a filter is dirty, a valve failed to open, or a pipe has broken.  Abnormally high pressure could be the result of a valve not opening when it should, a dirty filter if the pressure is measured upstream of the filter rather than downstream or some obstruction in the pipes.


Ensure your hydraulic systems keep running smoothly. Whitman parts can monitor filter cleanliness with the use of a differential pressure switch, consistent output pressure, and reservoirs of various liquids for any application no matter the acidity with our stainless steel parts. We also offer utility pressure gauges to compliment any hydraulic system in use. The Whitman's which is used in a control box that has several bags of out, which upon signal help to control the flow and direction of water and process, Kohls. Several Whitman switches are used in each control box.
