  • gaiasafe filter products for drinking water purification - Case Study

    Problem In some water works chlorination of drinking water is used to eliminate mikrobes. Chlorinated water may have disagreable taste and smell. Some water works use aluminium salts to clean the water. This leads to low concentrations of aluminium in drinking water. Today it is known that aluminium may be toxic to men. Old piping installations inside or outside private homes often where ...

  • How LEDs Will Change Water Purification

    Ultraviolet (UV) light has been naturally purifying water for centuries. With clear skies, our sun can inactivate water-based pathogens in six hours minimum. Cloudy skies or unclear water causes imperfect conditions. These conditions allow for bacteria to grow and make natural water sources unsafe to use. Fortunately, we have developed several types of water disinfection, ranging from chemicals ...

  • Evaluation of a silver-ion based purification system for rainwater harvesting at a small-scale community level

    Silver has been known for centuries to be a powerful disinfectant, with no known harmful effects to humans if applied in adequate doses. Although its use was partially discontinued with the advent of chlorination and modern antibiotics, the discovery of bacterial resistance and disinfection by-products has enabled its re-emergence as a viable water purification option. On the other hand, ...

  • City Water International explains The Basics of Water Filtration

    The Basics of Water Filtration Most of us know that filtered water is healthier than tap water because of its purity, but how does water filtration work? The basic principle is that filtered water has passed through a filter which removes contaminants through one of several methods, depending on the type of filter. Most water purification systems work in one of three ways ­ by running water ...
