Osmosis is the phenomenon of lower dissolved solids in water passing through a semi-permeable membrane into higher dissolved solids water until a near equilibrium is reached. Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a membrane process of purification which removes most of the the total dissolved solids (TDS) in water by reversing the natural process of osmosis. Pressure is applied to a TDS-concentrated solution against a semi-permeable membrane, causing pure water to diffuse through the membrane. RO has become an important...

Oxidation Reduction Potential or Redox is the activity or strength of oxidizers and reducers in relation to their concentration. Oxidizers accept electrons, reducers lose electrons. Examples of oxidizers are: chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, bromine, ozone, and chlorine dioxide. Examples of reducers are sodium sulfite, sodium bisulfate and hydrogen sulfide. Like acidity and alkalinity, the increase of one is at the expense of the other.

Municipalities need to provide reliable, high quality drinking water in an increasingly challenging environment while operating effectively and efficiently. One way to efficiently do this is through drinking water treatment plants and systems.
Disinfection and purification processes have many applications. For instance, treating drinking water with ozone provides well tasting, colorless crystal clear water. Ozone, UV and AOP based processes are also used in wastewater treatment, soil remediation, among others. For laboratories and healthcare, water purification applications range from renal dialysis or sterile services to glassware washing and DNA sequencing.
If you need to meter powder and granulates with accuracy, ProMinent systems are the right choice. They always store, transport and process solids reliably and precisely thanks to our exacting quality requirements.
Bromate forms during the ozonization of drinking water. Several international standards stipulate detection limits and test methods. Conductivity detection with chemical suppression allows the determination of bromate in the lower μg/L range. In the ng/L range, bromate can be detected by IC/MS coupling or post-column derivatization with potassium iodide and subsequent UV detection.
In addition to providing 15 minute chemical oxygen demand (COD) results and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) estimates, the PeCOD® Analyzer measures natural organic matter (NOM) in fresh and treated drinking water. The PeCOD® Analyzer does what no other technology has done before. It quickly and safely measures oxygen demand and the associated oxidative changes in organic matter in fresh and treated drinking water, at low concentrations and without the use of hazardous chemicals. A new ASTM International...
WesTech offers a holistic approach to surface water treatment for potable use. Depending upon the raw water quality, the flow rate, and operational preferences, WesTech can provide conventional flow, combination treatment units, packaged systems, high-rate processes, or even customized solutions.
Hygienically pure potable water and clean swimming pools on board cruise ships. Reliable water treatment solutions are crucial on board ships. ProMinent has both the necessary know-how and extremely precise metering technology to deliver the best water quality 24 hours a day.
Arsenic is a naturally occurring element found in soils and groundwater. Arsenic concentrations vary in accordance with geographic location. When arsenic levels are found to be too high at a specific location, it may be necessary to treat water to remove it. Arsenic usually exists in two different forms, or valences, in a natural setting depending on the amount of oxygen available in groundwater. In more shallow aquifers with higher levels of oxygen, arsenic will usually exist as arsenate, As (V). In deeper,...
Water is our most precious commodity. Drinking water is becoming more and more scarce as a result of rising demand and the drying up of resources. Particularly in arid regions such as the Middle East, Africa and increasingly in Southern Europe, the situation is deteriorating dramatically.
Today’s food and beverages (F&B) are much more than just simple "organic fuels" needed for survival. Beyond their nutritive value, they are consumed for their taste or flavor. Increasingly, they are also a source for maintaining health and enhancing our well-being via high-quality nutrition. At the same time, with an ever-increasing number of processed foods, food quality and safety aspects are becoming more important. All the more because foods are highly complex materials – prone to degradation...
Through the application of cutting-edge technologies, WesTech helps to assure that the byproducts of minerals extraction processes are made inert, reliably contained, and kept from causing environmental damage. Implementation of WesTech tailings processing technology assures that groundwater, surface waters, wildlife, and communities will be protected from tailings dam leaks and levy failures.
