The frequency and intensity of dust and sand storms in many parts of the world are steadily increasing due to droughts and climate change. The severity of such storms is anticipated to increase over the coming years.
These dust storms may last hours or days and cause huge damage and imposed a heavy toll on society with its physical effects, such as visibility reduction, heavy winds, red sky, hailstone and severe lightning.
Such Dust storms, have a negative impact on human health, and industrial products and...
From continuous backwash sand filters to ultrafiltration membranes, WesTech will help you achieve reuse-quality effluent. Offering more than one type of treatment allows WesTech to provide the right design for your specific application.
Controlling algae, cyanobacteria and fouling efficiently with ultrasound to reduce taste and odor problems in the treatment plant. Prevent taste and odor problems. Control fouling in sand filters and clarifiers. Improve coagulation and flocculation processes.
The new Weda YT-5000 with a five (5) meter wide suction nozzler speeds up the cleaning process considerably.
Estimated cleaning speed is up to 3000 sq. meters/hour.
The cleaner removes efficiently bottom sedimentation (sand, algae etc.) from the bottom surface and pumps it to a selected discharge point (filter, waste etc).
Mining release large volumes of water with a high conductivity due to the mineral salts that it contains. These effluents must be be treated with sand filters or activated carbon filters to reduce the environmental impact. Our range of filters in fiberglass reinforced polyester is highly resistant to corrosion and is, therefore, suitable to withstand these aggresive conditions.
All the industries including pharmaceutical, food&beverage, chemical, textil, paper & pulp, etc. require big quantities of water. The water used in any industrial process as for example heating, cooling or if it is going to be consumed directly in the process like in food & beverage industry should be purified and softened. Our range of pressure vessels can treat these effluents through sand, multimedia or activated carbon filters according to the needs.
Fossil fuel or solar-thermal power plants require clean water for their operation. Water used may contain several impurities such as calcium, magnesium or silica which can cause damages to turbines or heat exchangers. For this reason, water must be treated by ionic exchange or mechanical filtration. Also, the appropriate wastewater treatment for its reuse through sand filters in order to contribute to a sustainable water use is of vital importance.
Carbon Activated is one of the major suppliers of activated carbon to the drinking water industry. Activated carbon is an efficient and cost-effective solution for removing a wide range of contaminants from industrial and municipal wastewater, contaminated ground and groundwater. We provide carbon services to some of the largest municipalities in the US for ground water/potable water filtration. We also supply other types of filter media such as anthracite, sand and gravel and supply various types of filtration...
Water scarcity and the cost of water treatment has caused an increasing interest on water reuse for municipal and industrial reuse. Water treatment require mechanical filtration such as sand and anthracite filters to retain the particles that cause turbidity. Occasionally it is also necessary to reduce water hardness through ionic exchange or the adsortion of contaminants through the use of activated carbon. Our pressure vessels are suitable for any of type of filter media: sand, anthracite, silex, ionic exchange...
Our Filters are Highly Resistant to Corrosivity. Reverse osmosis is one of the most widely applied desalination technologies. Previous to the process of separtion of water from salt and minerals, seawater or brackish wter requires the elimination of large size particles in order to assure a good performance of reverse osmosis membranes. Our sand filters facilitate the removal of these suspended solids to avoid membrane fouling. In addition, after reverse osmosis process, water has to be remineralized through...
