In India, where waterborne diseases kill over 10,000 people each year, we don't need to explain why every household needs a water purifier. While, higher authorities may do their best to provide us with clean and safe drinking water, we must also bear some responsibility.
Most people rely on water filtration methods for their drinking water needs.For safe and clean water, we must equip our homes and workplaces with water purification systems, such as Commercial and Industrial RO Plants. In this blog, we will discuss about some of the differences between various water filtration systems.
What are the various types of water filtration systems?
There are different methods of water treatment used by Netsol Water, in our water filtration systems. We research and demonstrate the utility of these methods, which have served our previous clients in applications that are still in use.
We use these filtration technologies because they are efficient and environmentally friendly, for drinking water, process water, and wastewater treatment and reuse.
In high TSS applications, self-cleaning centrifugal filtration technology excels at separating solids. The spinning chamber forces heavier solids to the outer wall of the chamber using centrifugal force, and a cylindrical filter with self-cleaning brushes prevents excess solids from entering the central clean water outlet stream.
· Water treatment through AnthraciteMedia
Our anthracite filtration media is sourced from India's largest and purest reserve. Anthracite promotes increased bed penetration and uniform flow, whether used as a standalone filter media or as a supplement in a multimedia filter unit. This reduces the frequency of backwashing required, and reduces head loss in the bed.
· Activated Carbon Media
Even, within residential filtration units, activated carbon (AC) is becoming increasingly popular. It is extremely effective at removing solid matter from water and wastewater. Coconut-activated carbon, in particular, has advantages over bituminous coal or wood-based forms of AC. It produces less inorganic dust, and uses a much more renewable and environmentally friendly resource.
· Zeolite Media
Zeolite is a naturally occurring and environmentally friendly filter media, which can also be synthesized to increase purity. It has nearly three times the loading capacity of traditional sand filters, as well as the added benefit of ion exchange capacity. In addition to being able to handle higher loads of suspended solids, zeolite can reduce trace metals, ammonia, and hydrocarbon levels. It can also function as a water softener.
· Membrane Filtration
A pressure differential is used to force water through a membrane, separating it from even the smallest suspended or dissolved particles. In some of our treatment applications, such as tertiary filtration, NETSOL employs ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis desalination.
These filters can produce high-quality drinking water, industrial process water, or wastewater reuse for non-potable applications, after proper pre-treatment and disinfection.
· UV (Ultraviolet) Radiation
When water is exposed to UV light, it kills microorganisms and prevents them from reproducing. However, UV Radiation alone cannot remove impurities and heavy metals, if not combined with a RO Filter.
When water with a certain level of salinity needs to be filtered, this method is used. This procedure is beneficial.
· Conventional methods
While we encourage the use of cutting-edge technologies and processes, sometimes the old standbys are all that is required. For municipal treatment applications, we use screen filters and specialized disc filtration systems. In addition, depending on the industrial water treatment application, we use cartridge filters in our filtration systems.
Netsol Water seeks to see our clients succeed in their efforts to reduce costs in drinking water, wastewater treatment, and reuse. As a result, we use the best and most environmentally sustainable methods available, when designing our water filtration systems.
