One of the biggest costs for water-water treatment is energy consumption; the cost of which is likely to escalate with increased demand. Ineffective process control may not only be costly but environmentally impacts though the inefficient use of an un-renewable resource. Furthermore, poor process control in one area may also impinge on neighbouring processes ultimately affecting effluent water quality.
Problem: Drinking water plants that use surface water or ground water under the influence of surface water are susceptible to high levels of organic matter in the raw water. Reduction of organic matter through coagulation/sedimentation and filtration is important to lower the potential for disinfection by-product formation (DBP) and limit operational problems. In addition, organics in water consume the polymers used for the coagulation process, which reduces the efficiency of the treatment. Therefore, optimization...
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.
For treatment of Iron & Manganese removal, AdEdge Technologies uses our AD26 or ADGS+ media coagulation filtration with ferric chloride as the coagulation agent. This process allows significantly higher flow rates per square feet of media, less backwash water than other conventional approaches, and smaller footprint systems which means lower capital and operating costs. There are no hazardous chemicals or waste involved and the systems may be automated which decreases operator involvement and expense.
Aluminium is the most abundant metallic element and its salts are widely used as a coagulation treatment agent. At the same time increased levels of aluminium may lead to renal diseases and cause undesirable color and turbidity of distributed water.
There are practicable levels of aluminium in water based on optimization of the coagulation process at drinking-water plants: 0.1 mg/L or less for large water-treatment facilities and 0.2 mg/L or less for small.
Lumex Instruments provides accurate and selective...
Real Tech offers solutions that can provide substantial benefits to drinking water treatment plants. Continuous online monitoring can ensure water quality standards are met without the need for chemical overdosing while maintaining high confidence in the safety of the treated water. Significant cost savings can be achieved by optimizing coagulant dosage, reduced sludge production and reduced energy requirements.
