Water Treatment Plant
Ion Exchange manufacturers water treatment plant with advanced technologies that are ideal to produce potable water. Our generalized designs are widely used for treatment methods in assessing the quality of diverse water samples.
Water treatment plant involves processes that involve the improvement of the quality of water to make it more acceptable for a specific end-use by removing the dissolved impurities. Such water is used for the purpose of drinking, industrial water supply, irrigation, river flow maintenance, water recreation or other uses. Water treatment plant removes pollutants and dissolved components or reduces their concentration so that the water becomes fit for its desired application.
Treatment for drinking water production involves the removal of contaminants from raw water to produce water that is pure enough for human consumption without any short term or long term risk of any adverse health effect. Substances that are removed during the process of drinking water treatment include suspended solids, bacteria, algae, viruses, fungi, and minerals such as iron and manganese.
The processes involved in filtering the pollutants include physical processes such as settling and filtration, chemical procedures such as disinfection and coagulation and biological methods such as slow sand filtration.
Measures are taken to improve the water quality and also to facilitate its conveyance and distribution after treatment. It has become a common practice to keep residual pollutants in the treated water to kill bacterial contamination during distribution.
Water treatment plants employ sand water filters to remove precipitated iron. With the help of sand water filters, particles are removed from water either by passage through a sand bed that can be washed and reused or by passage through a purpose designed filter that may be washable.
ZeroB utilizes patented technological solutions for the treatment of specific contaminants in water treatment plant process.
Water Treatment Plant process includes the following steps:
Chemical Coagulation- Addition of chemicals like aluminium sulfate that cause the fine particles to clump together into larger particles that can then be removed later in the treatment process by settling, skimming, draining or filtering.
Flocculation- The flocculation process promotes contact between the floc particles and the particulates (sediment) in the water. The floc formed creates a surface in which the particulates in the water adsorb (adhere) to the surface of the floc thus forming larger particles that can be settled for easy removal by sedimentation and filtration.
Sedimentation- This process removes the suspended solids (particles) that are denser (heavier) than water and to reduce the particulate load on the filters.
Disinfection- The process is designed to kill or inactivate most microorganisms in water, including essentially all pathogenic organisms whether they are from bacteria, viruses or intestinal parasites
Filtration- The process involves passing of water through material such as a bed of coal, sand, or other granular substance to remove particulate impurities that were not removed during the sedimentation process.
The water treatment plant uses rapid rate multi-media gravity filter beds. The filters are comprised of a top layer of anthracite, a middle layer of filter sand and then a bottom layer of garnet sand and one an underdrain system that collects the filtered water.
ZeroB water treatment plant has a process laboratory to ensure that the water treatment processes are optimized and that the water is safe to drink. The water is tested daily for numerous parameters by our water plant operators and by continuous on-line monitoring by process instrumentation. Some of the water quality parameters monitored and tested for are chlorine, turbidity, alkalinity, hardness, dissolved oxygen, conductivity, and pH.
