Global Leader In Water Treatment Since 2002

Water Processing Blog

Water recycling reclaims water and treats it so it can be reused. Recycled water is commonly used in agricultural processes like irrigation and industrial processes like drilling because it significantly reduces tap water consumption. The petrochemical, chemical, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical industries are good examples of industries that use significant volumes of water; and wastewater and effluent are natural by-products of their industrial processes. This waste can be treated to a specified quality so that it can be reused…

With the correct treatment system, even the dirtiest wastewater like sewage can be transformed into drinking water. If that notion disgusts you a little bit, that’s probably because you see sewage as waste rather than as the valuable resource it is. Each day in the UK, sewers collect over 11 billion litres of wastewater, which equates to approximately 150-litres per person. This ends up in water treatment facilities, where it is processed to purify it so it can be discharged…

UV Filteration and Covid-19

COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus. Research has shown that it can live in water for at least a few days. Thankfully, water treatment facilities in the UK have processes that kill viruses during purification, and because of this, COVID-19 has not been detected in drinking water yet. One of the most effective processes at treating water for COVID-19 is UV treatment, a process we enable with our UV water treatment range. UV light…

The basic of wastewater treatment

Wastewater is used water that needs to be treated before it can be returned to the water cycle. Wastewater treatment describes the process we use to purify wastewater, to remove contaminants and make it cyclable again. This treatment process is essential to return wastewater to a specified quality so that it can be used again or returned to nature. Treatment phases There are two basic phases of water treatment: Solids removal. This is the primary stage. Techniques used: Sedimentation, skimming,…

Is a chemical shortage causing issues for your demineralisation process?

Industrial Pre treatment Processes across the UK are facing a chemical supply problem, brought about by an industry shortage as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. This got us thinking – how many water treatment plants out there are struggling to source the chemicals they need for their production, and what is the alternative? The answer: more than likely, the majority would be facing the issue and reverse osmosis could be the solution. Read More About RO Systems As you may know,…

Membracon Filtration System

‘Water Filtration’ is a term that refers to the filtration of impurities, contaminants, and chemicals from any water source to improve its quality and make it fit for its intended use. Types of Water Filtration Systems Water is the only natural resource that is used universally for multiple purposes. Water is a significant component for many crucial processes in industrial and commercial businesses, and not just for drinking purposes. Each water filtration system varies from the other to subsequently achieve…

Understanding Effluent

Understanding Effluent

Effluent is a byproduct of wastewater after its treatment. It is commonly known as ‘trade water’. Effluent is produced and discharged by any industrial or commercial premises into the natural water cycle by letting it flow directly into the rivers or seas. Effluent wastewater needs treatment even before it enters the sewers. Wastewaters from large-scale commercial industries like manufacturing and mining are composed of contaminants like chemicals, detergents, greases, oils, heavy metal rinses and solids. These harmful solvents and solids…

e-coating VS powder coating - what's the difference - water filtration

Electrocoating (e-coating) and powder coating are both used to apply either paint or a layer of protection to a part. Both processes require the part to be cured at a high temperature. They are often used together in processes such as Industrial manufacturing and radiator production. The way they are applied and the reasoning for application is the main difference between the two processes. There are other ways you can paint a part such as wet spray but we’ll be…
