DRINKING WATER FILTRATION RESOURCES

  • There is no question that unpleasant taste and/or odor in drinking water can create negative water quality perception challenges for water utilities. Though taste and odor are not health concerns, consumers still are likely to notice and voice their concerns.

  • For many utilities, properly treating the iron and manganese in source water is critical to maintaining good customer relationships. When iron and manganese are present, they are often accompanied by arsenic contamination. Here are several examples of utilities that successfully installed treatment systems to address the trio of contaminants.

  • As granular activated carbon (GAC) is increasingly employed to treat PFAS, new practitioners can improve their results by knowing what to expect — thanks to data and experience acquired from prior installations.

  • A staggering four billion people — two-thirds of the world’s population — experience water scarcity each year, and more than half lack access to safe sanitation services. The severity of this global water crisis will only increase as populations continue to rapidly grow, industries exhaust shared resources and extreme weather events exacerbate shortages. If we don’t act urgently, 700 million people could be displaced by intense water scarcity in just a few short years.

  • Technology is constantly evolving and changing to meet the needs of humanity, and one of those needs is for clean water. The water treatment industry is always researching, testing, and developing new and improved ways in which to treat wastewater and drinking water in ways that are both efficient and environmentally friendly. Zeolite water filtration media is a sustainable, natural treatment solution for drinking water, grey water and wastewater treatment.

  • Drinking water treatment systems have little room for error after treatment at the risk of public health. Use of treatment systems that effectively target and treat toxic and undesirable contaminants is essential to drinking water production. There are typically four stages in a standard drinking water treatment system process, coagulation/flocculation, sedimentation/clarification, filtration and disinfection. Sodium zeolite is typically utilized in the filtration systems within the filtration stage for optimal treatment performance.

  • At manufacturing operations using ultrafiltration systems, the ultrafiltration membranes are used for numerous batches without replacement, using Clean-In-Place (CIP) operations in between batches to maintain filter performance. However, ineffective CIP cycles or long-term fouling or degradation of the filter membrane can result in increased cycle times to move the desired amount of product through the filter, lost yield as the product is unable to permeate the filter, or poor product quality as membrane failure may occur.

  • The Toquepala mine is a large copper mine in the Tacna Province in Peru, on the border with Chile and Bolivia. The mine is situated far from nearby towns and cities and is operated by between 800-900 employees living on-site.

  • Ultrafiltration (UF) is commonly used as a pre-treatment to Reverse Osmosis (RO) to ensure reliable, consistent and efficient operation. As Shandong Hongxin Chemicals Co., Ltd in China recently discovered, this consistency and reliability, along with quick setup and installation times, helped them realize convenience and cost savings.
