  • Wastewater Treatment for a soft drink processing company

    Description of the plant The wastewater from production and filling of mineral waters and soft drinks is pre-treated mechanically by a screen and buffered in an aerated mixing and balancing reactor. After equalization of flow and load the wastewater is given to the biological reactors where organic substances as sugar and other organic compounds are decreased by biological activity of ...

  • Parameters affecting steady-state floc blanket performance

    A laboratory-scale reactor was used to simulate a water treatment process sequence of rapid mix, hydraulic flocculation, upflow clarification with a floc blanket, and lamellar sedimentation to accomplish removal of colloidal particles. This study focused on variables affecting performance of the floc blanket including: provision of hydraulic flocculation, raw water turbidity, coagulant dose, ...

  • New developments in filter cartridges for reverse osmosis pre-filtration

    Reverse osmosis (RO) pretreatment systems are designed to reduce suspended solids to a level that will provide the most suitable conditions for the performance of the membrane system. Depending upon the quality of the feed water, pretreatment may include settlement, clarification, multi-media filtration, and chemical treatment. However, sediment pre-filtration is always required to ensure that ...

  • What is Zeoturb Bio-Organic Flocculant Treatment Media?

    In most standard water treatment systems, there is a flocculation process that is used to reduce the concentrations of solids within the effluent stream. This particular process makes use of substances that aid in the clumping together of suspended particles. There are several different substances that have been used for decades, but research continues looking for more. Ideally, newer flocculants ...

  • Reverse Osmosis vs Nanofiltration Membrane Process: What Is the Difference?

    Reverse osmosis (RO) and Nanofiltration (NF) are physical separation technologies used to remove contaminates from liquid streams. In recent years, RO/NF technologies have become more efficient and affordable for use across a variety of industrial applications, including ...

  • What is Potable Water and How is it Treated?

    What is potable water?If you can drink it or cook with it, it’s potable. Potable water is classified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as water that is not contaminated with organic, inorganic, radiological, or microbiological pollutants and does not present any differences in taste, smell, or appearance. A majority of the earth’s population has regular and convenient access to ...

  • Wastewater-Primary Treatment

    Primary Treatment is defined as a wastewater treatment process that takes place in a rectangular or circular tank and allows those substances in wastewater that readily settle or float to be separated from the water being treated. This process achieves solids separation. The solids readily available to settle to achieve sedimentation will do so in a settling tank referred as a clarifier. On the ...
