Potable Water Filtration

Filtration of borehole water (Sediment, Cryptosporidium, Iron & Manganese removal)

Water boreholes are private water supplies which are used as an alternative to mains water and provide water for farming, irrigation, dairy, domestic use etc. Water from boreholes is of generally good quality, rocks act as natural filters and as water percolates through layers of soil and rocks, impurities are gradually removed by mechanical action as well as adsorption through the complex rock structure. However, water chemistry is complex and fractured rock formations can cause […]

CARTRIDGE AND BAG FILTRATION FOR RAINWATER HARVESTING SYSTEMS

Scarcity of water in urban areas and continued pressure on water resources has made rainwater harvesting an attractive solution for reusing rainwater which would have otherwise been lost. These systems provide an alternative supply solution for reducing dependence on mains water supply. Rainwater harvesting systems collect and store rainwater which can later be used for potable or non-potable purposes depending on treatment. Typical uses include washing, toilet flushing and gardening. According to Environment agency data […]

Prefiltration of Reverse Osmosis Membranes using Cartridge Filters

Increasing population, contamination of natural water sources and stringent water quality and treatment regulations have made water purification and production one of the biggest challenges of our time. Reverse Osmosis is a popular technology for desalination and water purification but has also found use in many other industries like boiler feed water production in power generation, water production for pharmaceutical or beverage use, military use, humanitarian work and ultrapure water in semiconductor industry.  All technologies […]

UV prefiltration using cartridge filtration

What is UV disinfection? These systems work by transferring electromagnetic energy from a mercury lamp to an organism’s DNA & RNA structure by penetrating the cell wall, causing cell death and destroying the ability to reproduce. Since most microorganisms cause disease by multiplying rapidly inside the host, UV light treatment is an effective method for water disinfection. UV light simply means part of electromagnetic spectrum with wavelengths between 100 and 400 nanometers, although wavelength for […]
