Drinking Water Treatability

The treatment or “cleansing” of water takes on two primary requirements – eliminating contamination within acquired water prior to using or drinking (potable water); and eliminating contamination within used water prior to its release back to the environment (waste water). For both requirements, an element of cleansing involves disinfection which can be accomplished by several methods intended to kill, remove, or oxidize the contamination. Techniques include mechanical separation such as filtering and reverse osmosis; exposure to ultraviolet light and radiation; and the addition of chemicals such as chlorine or ozone, and now Ferrate. Each technique has its own advantages, disadvantages, effective cost ratio, and ability to scale up in order to treat the affected volume of water. We provide innovative products and process lines for the drinking water treatment. Our treatability test incorporates proprietary Ferrate (Iron VI) treatment system chemistries into a bench test under controlled conditions that are designed to meet treatment objectives specified by the client. The chemical modification or removal of target constituents is achieved by a combination of chemical reactions that can include oxidation, disinfection, complexation, or coagulation followed by the manipulation of one or more operational parameters such as pH adjustment, sedimentation, filtration and mixing.
