Posted by Admin on March, 26, 2012

Water Treatment is a common process which is followed by many heavy industries to process used water. Many companies have installed Water Purifying Plants for the removal of harmful chemicals and toxic substances from water. Even the drinking water that one uses is treated by efficient Water Treatment Plants before it reaches the kitchen. Water Treatment has become one of the important factors that need essential consideration before water supply.

Why Water Treatment?
Water Treatment is necessary to remove harmful minerals and germs. The drinking water, in its raw form, contains unhealthy germs and minerals, which can cause various health problems so it is necessary to remove those minerals and microbes before usage. The purified water is used for drinking, medical processing, and many similar purposes.

Process of Water Treatment:
The water purification follows various steps that include:

  • Pre-Chlorination: Under this process the water is treated to control and kill the bacterial and microbe growth.
  • Aeration: The water is treated to remove minerals like iron and manganese to bring the pH level of the water to a normal level.
  • Coagulation: Various forms of chloride are removed to avoid the formation of froth or cake in the water.
  • Sedimentation: Various solid particles and granules are removed by this process. The solid particles settle at the bottom of the container and are easily removed.
  • Filtration: In this process, the other particles are removed.

After this, the process of Desalination allows the removal of salt from water and Disinfection process kills the bacteria. With this final step for water treatment, the water is fit to be used for any application. Companies follow different types of processes to remove the slurry part from the water and kill the germs to make it suitable for various uses.

Various Types Of Water Treatment Plants Are:

  • Mobile Water Treatment Plants
  • Iron Removal Plants
  • Packaged Water Treatment Plants
  • Drinking Water Treatment Plant
  • Compact Treatment Plants

Various Processes Used By These Plants For Water Treatment Are:

  • Membrane Filtration: The activated waste is separated from the liquid form. The process uses ultra-filtration membranes to remove the sludge.
  • Advanced Oxidation Systems: In this process, the COD/BOD levels are reduced and removal of organic and inorganic components takes place. This is done using chemical oxidants, which oxidizes the organic materials.

The treated water is mainly used for external purposes like cleaning, watering lawns, golf courses, etc. The water also finds use in industries for a variety of uses.
