A good clean water supply is important even in moderate climates. Whether it is being used for food preparation, cooking or simply drinking, the quality of the water is essential.
The removal of organic and inorganic materials as well as pathogens and bacteria is carried out through the various stages of the watertreatment process. Drinking water undergoes various stages and treatments before it comes out clean from the tap.
To improve the quality of the water, organic and inorganic materials, salts, metals and micro organisms need to be removed. The addition of various chemicals at different process stages assists with their removal. Accurate dosing of these chemicals is critical to ensurie that the correct levels of water purity are achieved. Dosing pumps from our MD range and BN range of pumps have a high level of accuracy and repeatability with a smooth pulsation free flow which ensures that fluctuations in dosing levels do not occur. This dosing accuracy and the high resistance of the pump's materials make a decisive contribution to improving the quality of the drinking water.
In less temperate climates water desalination is more often utilised to produce the quality of water required for human consumption. SEEPEX pumps are utilised to transfer saline solutions, seawater and salt slurries in a cost effective and efficient manner
SEEPEX pumps help to remove salts by adding chemicals
For disinfection of water dosing pumps add further chemical solutions such as chlorine liquids
After the filtration process N range pumps are used to dose lime slurry for pH regulation
Thickened sludge with solids from sedimentation is reliably transported with large standard pumps
Progressive cavity pumps are particularly suitable in water treatment for the smooth and accurate dosing of additives and chemicals and also for the transfer of sludges and salt slurries.
