Containerized Portable Water Treatment Plants for Remote Areas
Potable water (more commonly known as drinking water) is water that is safe enough for drinking and food preparation. According to the World Health Organization, around 80% of the world’s population had access to an improved drinking-water source in 2021.
Treatment for the production of drinking water involves the removal of contaminants from raw water to produce water that is pure enough for human consumption, without any adverse health effects. These contaminants can come in various forms, including fungi, viruses, algae, bacteria and minerals (e.g. iron).
The standard process for potable water treatment involves water from a lake, reservoir or river being transferred into a tank where coagulation, flocculation and clarification occurs. This is followed by sedimentation, where the heavy particles (floc) settle to the bottom and the clear water moves to filtration. Here, the water passes through layers composed of sand, gravel and charcoal in order to remove even smaller particles. A small amount of chlorine is then added in order to disinfect and kill any bacteria or microorganisms that may be in the water.
However, the new technology of potable water treatment is UF Technology, the UF membrane normally with a pore size of 0.01-micron that ultrafiltration can be used for the removal of particulates and macromolecules and more than 90% pathogen from raw water to produce potable water. Nowadays, It has been used to either replace existing secondary (coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation) and tertiary filtration (sand filtration and chlorination) systems employed in water treatment plants or as standalone systems in isolated regions with growing populations. When treating water with high suspended solids, UF is often integrated into the process, utilizing primary (screening, flotation, filtration) and some secondary treatments as pre-treatment stages.
UF processes are currently preferred over traditional treatment methods for the following reasons:
1). No chemicals required (aside from cleaning)
2). Constant produce quality effluent regardless of feed quality
3). Compact plant size
4). Capable of exceeding regulatory standards of water quality, achieving 90–100% pathogen removal
5). Price much affordable in these few years as UF Technology matured.
6). Lower footprint (Space required) and easy operation (Automatically controlling)
7). Low energy cost and power consumption
In the remote areas or undeveloped areas, the local government still no building the standard portable water treatment plant, some because of lack of investment and some area shortage of clean water resources. People are often plagued by how to create an effective water purification treatment system in a small or remote space. Hinada now special design and make the Containerized Portable Water Treatment Plants, and offer a wide range of highly effective UF System for the treatment of drinking water.
