By removing any pollutants from the drinking water, we are trying to improve the biological and chemical content of it because the need for sweet water is the greatest. Water treatment basically means removing algae, fungi, viruses, bacteria, suspended solids and minerals such as manganese and iron, which are very hazardous to human health.
Any process that purifies water and makes it acceptable for any use, specific or not, can be considered as water treatment. It is a process that removes any pollutants and contaminants from the water, making it safe for drinking, returning to the environment, river flow maintenance or drinking, irrigation, industrial water supply or any specific end use. By reducing the concentration of any hazardous microorganisms or minerals, water becomes free of any undesired components and becomes fit for any use.
Water treatment can be also called water purification and it is usually applied to the drinking water although, it can be used for any other purposes. The main goal and purpose of water treatment process is to turn raw water into pure drinking water, good enough for human consumption.
Three types of water treatment processes
Through these three processes, water goes through a thorough examination. These processes include a physical process which further has two stages, settling, and filtration, a chemical process which also has two stages, disinfection and coagulation, and in the end, a biological process called the slow sand filtration.
Measures are also taken in order to make sure that treated water is safely conveyed and distributed. Killing any bacteriological pollution or contamination during transportation and distribution is possible by using the residual disinfectants.
Filtration is one of the most important stages of water treatment processes. It helps to remove any particles from water. This includes bacteria, viruses and fungi.
Solids separation or sedimentation removes any suspended solids that could be trapped in the floc. It is followed closely by coagulation that is also called slow sand filtration. Water filters, reverse osmosis systems, ion exchange and several distillation stages will make the drinking water, pure, clear and chemically and biologically acceptable and ready for the market. Thus, our purpose has been fulfilled.
Biological processes like prechlorination can help us to control algae and biological growth of microorganisms found in water. Aeration is a process that includes the removal of dissolved iron if it is present. This goes for manganese as well.
This water treatment technology can help us to make the drinking water clearer and tastier but, most importantly, much healthier. We can process such waters like industrial and waste waters or polluted and technical waters. Through our water treatment process, we remove all hazardous elements and make those waters pure and drinkable once again. This could be a solution to the world’s increasing problem with water shortage as only 0,8% of fresh water on this planet can be used for drinking purposes. With our water treatment technology and products, we will do out best to make water accessible to anyone.
