    Coagulation/Filtration Services

    Coagulation/filtration is a process that removes contaminants from water by precipitation. Aluminum salts and ferric (iron) salts are the two most commonly used coagulants in the water treatment industry. These salts work by hydrolyzing to form aluminum hydroxide and iron hydroxide particulates, which can then be effectively filtered out of the water supply. Because of iron’s strong affinity to arsenic (As), iron-based coagulants such as ferric...

  • Oxidation Filtration Services

    Oxidation Filtration Services

    The process of oxidation/filtration involves oxidizing soluble forms of iron and manganese to create insoluble compounds, then removing the insoluble precipitate through filtration.

  • Flocculation/Clarification Services

    Flocculation/Clarification Services

    The flocculation/clarification process is applied when there is a high degree of turbidity in the water or when solids must be separated from liquids. Flocculation/clarification is highly effective at reducing turbidity and removing color, solids and colloidal material from water and wastewater when used together with chemical feed, sludge treatment and filtration of clarified elements.

  • Adsorption Processes Services

    Adsorption Processes Services

    Adsorption is a process where contaminants break their bond with water molecules and chemically adhere to a filter media. Adsorption is a constant process where water is directed at a specific flow rate through a fixed bed of adsorption media for a period of six months to two years until exhaustion. Once exhausted, adsorptive medias need to be replaced or regenerated. The flow must be calculated to be at a rate that allows enough contact time for...

  • Dewatering Filter Presses Services

    Dewatering Filter Presses Services

    Most dewatering filter presses are sometimes called 'plate-and-frame filters,' but this term accurately describes only a certain style of filter plates in wide use during the mid- to late-1800s. Although true plate-and-frame filters are still employed today, the most commonly used system of plates in modern dewatering operations are more accurately called 'recessed chamber” and/or “diaphragm (membrane) plates.'

  • Membrane Filtration Services

    Membrane Filtration Services

    Membrane Filtration: The process of membrane filtration uses pressure to force a carrier fluid, such as water, through a semi-permeable (porous) membrane in order to separate suspended particulate matter from the fluid and soluble components. Microfiltration (MF): Considered an intermediate process between ultrafiltration and multi-media granular filtration, microfiltration is a size-exclusion, pressure-driven membrane process. It is...
