THE PROBLEM WITH WATER TREATMENT TODAY

Separation and removal of suspended solids is a crucial stage in converting raw water to potable municipal water, as well as in treating municipal and industrial wastewater purposes.

 

Suspended solids are removed in conventional water treatment plants by the use of removal  and filtration stages with different filtration degrees (higher to lower microns, etc.) using clarifiers, mechanical filters, media filter beds, and membranes. This process also usually utilizes pre-treatment stages that include coagulation and flocculation in order to produce larger-sized particles and clusters that aid easier

removal. Nevertheless, these systems have a weakness in that they need to be designed for specific, predefined and narrow ranges of turbidity levels: However, when the turbidity level significantly exceeds the design level, the system soon reaches its upper operation level and then has difficulty functioning.

 

With the raising of turbidity levels of raw water, filters and membranes systems can become clogged. To avoid such malfunctions, the system designers are forced to install backup systems in advance, which raises the installation and operational costs of the system.

AQUA HD has designed a separation system capable of removing a wide range of suspended solids from water with heavy loads of TSS (total suspended solids). It can separate a vast spectrum

of highly variable particles without a significant reduction in effectiveness. Even with an increa- sing dirt load, there is no need to either make adjustments or to stop the separation process.

AQUA HD is a one-stage water clarification system that uses innovative technology with:

NO MOVING PARTS

CONTROLLING DRAG AND CENTRIFUGAL FORCES

NO FILTER ELEMENTS (SCREEN OR DISK)

VERY SMALL FOOTPRINT

One of the main advantages of AQUA HD’s technology is its ability to greatly enhance the efficiency of the flocculation process.

Aqua HD is the only product on the market that can separate and remove FLOCS from high velocity

MUNICIPAL WATER TREATMENT

SURFACE WATER

 

Many surface water treatment facilities all over the world face fluctuating turbidity and TSS conditions caused by rain events. Conventional water treatment plants, used to treat surface water with high turbidity, often fail to handle such fluctuations.

 

Raw-surface water treatment systems are made up of multiple individual technologies designed to address the complexities of each specific source of raw water. Installing the most efficient and well-designed system that is able to handle seasonal variations in turbidity, is the most cost-effective solution as it prevents expensive occurrences of plant downtime and maintenance fees.

AQUA HD APPLICATIONS

  • Intake Water

  • Rain Harvest

  • Backwash Water Treatment

  • Injection water

  • Membrane Protection

WASTEWATER

 

Wastewater treatment systems are necessary to ensure the removal of suspended and  dissolved particles. treated effluent should be able to be reused, subject to complying with the relevant regulations and safety precautions. A wastewater treatment system is a system made up of several individual technologies that address specific wastewater treatment needs. An efficient and well-designed wastewater treatment system should be able to handle the following situations: biochemical oxygen demand; nitrates and phosphates; pathogens; total suspended solids; metals; total dissolved solids, and more.

 

AQUA HD APPLICATIONS

  • Intake TSS Reduction

  • Tertiary Treatment

  • Membrane Protection

INDUSTRIAL WATER TREATMENT

WASTEWATER

 

Industrial wastewater often contains effluents  from  different units within the factory, with each one containing different characteristics. Once these effluents are mixed many of their original characteristics disappear.

Most factories have a pre-treatment system for effluents before they are discharged into the municipal sewers, the quality and safety of which is set by law.

 

AQUA HD APPLICATIONS

  • Intake Water

  • Cooling Towers

  • Membrane Protection

  • Wastewater Treatment

AQUACULTURE

INTAKE WATER

 

With a rising demand for fish, aquaculture is fast becoming an important business. A high-quality water supply is vital for such a venture.

It is not just the quality and chemical  make-up of water that is important, but also what is pumped to the farm with that water.

 

The economic potential if a proper inlet treatment is installed

  • feeding increased

  • feed conversion improved

  • final harvesting improved

AQUAHD APPLICATIONS

  • Fish and shrimp farms

  • Intake water

  • Recycling water

  • Effluents

WASTEWATER AND RECYCLING

Many aquaculture systems generate high amounts of wastewater containing compounds such as suspended solids, total nitrogen and total phosphorus, with the number of fish farmed being directly proportional to the waste load. Therefore, an efficient wastewater treatment system is essential for an intensive fish-farming culture.

 

Aquaculture systems have been found to work well when dealing with intake water, recycled water, and effluents.

ADVANCED AGRICULTURE

The demand for high-quality water treatment systems for advanced agriculture is more required today than in the past.

Water treatment systems may be necessary in the irrigation of sensitive crops, or at the stage of packing the produce.

AQUAHD APPLICATIONS

  • Irrigation

  • Packing houses (e.g. banana packing houses - latex prevention)

SURFACE WATER

 

Water used for industrial pur- poses also needs to be of high quality in order to protect expensive equipment and to ensure adequate and efficient processes. Industrial sectors have many different needs for clean water.

  • Pulp & Paper

  • Food & Beverage

  • Oil & Gas

  • Chemicals & Fertilizers

  • Mining & Metals

  • Power
