  • Types of Water Treatment Systems

    There are different types of water treatment systems, and knowing the difference between them can help you make an informed decision on just what type of treatment you’ll need for your water. There is no best water treatment system that will meet everyone’s needs—each system has its benefits and deficiencies. Here are a few ...

  • Meeting Water Needs With Desalination

    As demand for fresh water increases, communities look to the sea and to previously unusable aquifers With the world’s population consuming water in record amounts and water scarcity causing a host of geopolitical and humanitarian problems, technology can be harnessed to help meet the demand. One increasingly important solution ...

  • Solutions for Safe Drinking Water Through Biological Water Treatments

    Most people across the U.S. expect to turn on their faucets and have immediate access to clean drinking water. The truth is, it wasn’t until 1974 that Congress passed the Safe Water Drinking Act with the goal of regulating the nation’s public water supply. Over the years, the SWDA has been amended to include water sources as well, such as rivers, lakes, springs and groundwater wells ...

  • The Best Ground Water Treatment Methods

    Many homes and businesses depend on ground water or surface water as a vital water source. Unfortunately, much of this water has not been filtered through municipal water treatment and distribution technology. This means that the water many people consume, cook with, and use for basic hygiene can contain potentially harmful particles, including pathogens, tiny organic matter, sediment, ...

  • The Benefits of Biological Treatment for Drinking Water

    The biological treatment of drinking water is undertaken using both organic and inorganic contaminants, and can be used to treat groundwater and surface water. These contaminants, contrary to what the name implies, are applied to strip away the factors that make the water unsafe for drinking until it is potable—meaning drinkable. If you would like to learn more about the benefits of ...

  • Water treatment membrane coating promises chemical-free virus removal

    A novel material coating for water treatment membranes promises to improve the removal of water-borne viruses during treatment. This hydrogel coating, known as a zwitterionic polymer hydrogel, was created by scientists from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The virus-fighting membrane was created by grafting the new hydrogel coating onto ...

  • Namibia increases reliance on recycled wastewater as water scarcity grows

    Namibia, an arid country in southern Africa, is plagued by drought and water scarcity. But, it’s also a country that continues to make progress in wastewater recycling after becoming an early adopter of the technology. The city of Windhoek’s Goreangab wastewater treatment plant is considered a pioneering facility in water reclamation. First constructed in 1968, the plant not only ...

  • Removal of model viruses, E. coli and Cryptosporidium oocysts from surface water by zirconium and chitosan coagulants

    The present work evaluates the effect of contact filtration, preceded by coagulation with zirconium (Zr) and chitosan coagulants, on model microorganisms and waterborne pathogens. River water intended for potable water production was spiked with MS2 and Salmonella Typhimurium 28B bacteriophages, Escherichia coli, and Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts prior to ...

  • Do You Need a Microfiltration or Ultrafiltration Membrane System for Your Plant?

    Determining whether or not an industrial plant needs a microfiltration (MF) and/or ultrafiltration (UF) membrane system isn’t always as straightforward as it seems. While these systems are not essential for every industrial process, when thoughtfully implemented within an intake, process, or waste stream, they can go a long way in improving a facility’s efficiency and/or cutting ...

  • Microfiltration vs Ultrafiltration Processes: What is the Difference?

    Microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF) are both processes by which a contaminated liquid is passed through a semipermeable membrane that removes solids too large to fit through the membrane’s pore size, yielding a purified liquid stream. To what degree the stream is purified depends on the contaminants present and the pore size of the membrane. MF and UF are generally ...

  • How Do You Choose the Best Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration Membrane System for an Industrial Facility?

    As global demands for clean water increase, more and more industrial facilities are looking toward membrane filtration solutions, such as reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration (NF), to help manage intake, process, and waste water treatment. Using membrane filtration can help your facility reuse wastewater and virtually eliminate discharge fees, and depending on the industry or required use, it ...

  • Does Your Facility Need a Reverse Osmosis or Nanofiltration System?

    Reverse osmosis (RO) and Nanofiltration (NF) are used across a wide variety of industrial applications for removal of dissolved materials from liquid streams. Implemented judiciously, RO and NF are effective strategies for recycling process liquids, reducing waste water, recovering and concentrating dissolved materials, and generating potable water. If your industrial facility requires removal of ...
