Watertech DW S

 
Overview

DESCRIPTION

Azud Watertech DW S purifies water with sílex and anthracite media filtration to provide the required standard of potable water for municipalities and industries.

  • Silex and anthracite media filtration removes suspended solids larger than 30 microns.
  • No need for chemicals reagents and unnecessary consumables that generate extra costs.
  • Fully autonomous operation ensures water quality and the maximum equipment protection. No need for permanent staff.
  • Compact, modular plant, with simple and immediate installation and operation. No civil engineering and no setbacks.

Design Criteria

The purification techniques implemented depend on the type of problem or pollutant detection. Typically, in the same water treatment plant, different technologies combine in such a way to ensure gradual and selective water treatment. Each technology “protects the rear,” allowing each to function solely on the technical pollutant for which it was designed, and together provide a comprehensive solution.

 
Technology

Turbid-Water

TURBID WATER

Granular bed filters: Water with average turbidity (<10 NTU) passes through a multilayer bed filter with size and specific gravity range; suspended solids larger than 1 µm remain at the filter bed. Cleaning is done automatically through collector arms in the opposite direction of the filtrate flow.

Ultrafiltration membranes: Water with high turbidity (10-50 NTU) passes through a set of PVDF hollow fiber membranes. Water is passed at outside-inside flow. Particles larger than 0.03 µm are retained at fibers (suspended solids, colloids, bacteria and viruses). Permeate and chemical cleaning is done automatically in the opposite direction of the filtrate flow.

Water-Containing

WATER CONTAINING PESTICIDES

Activated carbon filter: Water passes through an activated carbon bed filter, (carbonized material with high porosity), which allows water to pass while trapping pesticides, chlorinated compounds, and a precursor of odor, color and taste on the filter surface. Cleaning is done automatically through collector arms in the opposite direction of the filtrate flow.

TUBO_PRESION_OSMOSIS_ENG

WATER WITH DISSOLVED SALTS OR HEAVY METALS

Reverse osmosis applies high pressure (osmotic pressure) on a solution with a high concentration of salts that comes in contact with a semipermeable membrane. This reverses the natural process of osmosis to allow the passage of water and retention of salts and results in fresh (salt-free) water.

Reverse osmosis membranes are flat, made of organic materials and spirally wound around a perforated central tube that collects permeate. The membranes have a standard length (1 meter) and diameter (2.5”, 4” o 8”). The membranes are linked together and encapsulated in high-pressure vessels.

Water-with-Iron

WATER WITH IRON OR MANGANESE

Pirolusite/manganese greensand filters: For water with a high concentration of iron or manganese, water passes through manganese greensand bed filter (manganese dioxide) and flint, allows water to pass, while oxidizing and traping iron or manganese presented in the filter material. Cleaning is done automatically through collector arms in the opposite direction of the filtrate flow.
