Wastewater Treatment

Changing our environment for the better is a step-by step approach. One of the fastest ways forward is to turn wastewater into safe water that can be then handed back to nature. When water has served its purpose, it is brought to a treatment plant for the breaking down and removal of contaminants.

The cycle of water contains many steps and our combination of expertise about wastewater functions and world-class products is unique

Functions that set the standard in wastewater treatment 
A treatment plant is the sum total of a number of inter-relating functions, a function being a specific, vital task that a particular product needs to perform at each particular stage of the treatment process. Our expertise enables us to set functions together in the most effective way possible to maximize the operating efficiency of a treatment plant.

Pumping
This involves the handling of every type of wastewater and sludge. It also deals with various capacities and solids contents and combinations of these, as well as the balancing of robust performance with energy efficiency.

Mixing
The mixer configuration is actually more critical than the product itself. Expertise in the positioning and fluid dynamics of the mixer is the defining factor in maximizing efficiency.

Aeration
Aeration systems constitute more than half of the energy costs at a typical treatment plant. We understand the sheer complexity of balancing the right amount of oxygen needed in the process, as well as the interaction between mixing and aeration in oxidation ditches.

Clarification
An efficient clarification function increases the efficiency of solids removal to allow downstream wastewater treatment equipment to operate more efficiently due to lower loading, as well as increasing the efficiency of sludge handling equipment and reducing the cost of sludge processing.

Filtration
A complete operating filter system regulated to achieve maximum filtration efficiency at the longest possible filtration cycles is essential to removing suspended solids and nutrients such as nitrate and/or phosphorus and organic compounds.

Disinfection
UV light presents the most cost effective disinfection of wastewater. The UV light is generated using special lamps at a certain wavelength and when in direct contact with the contaminated wastewater, safely inactivates microorganisms without producing any byproducts.

Oxidation
Ozone gas is used to degrade and remove harmful micropollutants as well as odor from wastewater. The entire process is efficient, eco-friendly and safe. The treated water can be either reused or discharged.
