Production of drinking water

To ensure quality of drinking water or service water and water for industrial purposes (including demineralized water), a number of processes is used depending on the quality of in put water and the required capacity of the water purification plant.

The following are most commonly used for drinking water:

  1. Softening plant that serves for the removal of high contents of magnesium and calcium
  2. Equipment for removal of iron and manganes e, which serves for removal of the stated elements from drinking or service water
  3. Ultra-filtering equipment that substitutes common chemical coagulation process of drinking water production. Operation of equipment is more effective; quality of purified wat er does not depend on accuracy regarding adjustment of chemical agent dosing and the process produces no waste sludge as in the case of common purification. Moreover, purified water is separated from crude water by a fixed barrier and thus contamination of already-purified water by crude water cannot occur. Purified water is protected against bacteria. The entire purification process is automatic and the user is able to operate it after reading directions for use.
  4. Reverse osmotic module serves for producti on of demineralized water and for production of drinking water from marine water.
  5. The module for hygienic protection serves to protect purified water against potential contamination with pathogens. This can be solved by means of a UV lamp used in the case of short-term storage; dosing of chemical agents or ozone is used in the case of long -term storage.

          Described types of technological assemblies are available either separately or as part of a product for preparation of drinking or service water. For such purposes, equipment with a capacity of 35 - 3,000 liters per hour is available; such equipment can be mobile, incl. current generator, or stationary. In both cases, connection to the local network (if available) is possible. Stated equipment is manufactured in the following variants:

  • for fresh water with a suitable representation of inorganic salts for the purposes of drinking water;
  • for marine, semi-fresh or strongly contaminated fresh (surface) water;
  • for water contaminated by warfare agents or other toxicants;
  • for rescue departments or fire departments for solving natural catastrophes (autonomous system of water treatment plant with lighting, workshop or tent shelter as treatment room and workshop with basic equipment).

          In the second stated case, it is all-purpose equipment enabling the production of drinking water from almost any source and also enables the consumption of hygienically safe service water and demineralized water. A summary of products contains commonly manufactured and supplied type equ ipment. For larger capacities or for specified requirements, individual assemblies are completed upon customer request, e.g. water treatment plant capacity of tens of cubic meters per hour and more. The same applies to systems for the biological treatment of water and its  re-use as service water or drinking water. This problematic is solved individually because there are number of factors that must be considered and, for large capacities, costs must be minimized with the use of local specifics. Therefore, we don't offer a standard product in this area that we would apply to existing conditions, but we manufacture equipment optimized for  given conditions. This solution is more convenient in terms of operation and investment.
