Water Treatment System

Water Treatment System

Processes involved in WTP system for freshwater purposes to provide a safe sourceWater Treatment System of  supply may solids separation using physical processes such as settling and filtration, and chemical processes such as disinfection and coagulation. For most people, the term “WTP system” refers to the production of freshwater from the reservoir, whereas “WTP” refers to the treatment of polluted water, where the pollution can come from human waste, industrial, agricultural wastes or other sources of pollution.

Processes for Water Treatment Plant

  • Pre-chlorination for algae control and arresting any biological growth
  • Aeration along with pre-chlorination for removal of dissolved iron and manganese
  • Coagulation – for flocculation
  • Coagulant aids, also known as polyelectrolytes – to improve coagulation and for thicker floc formation
  • Sedimentation – for solids separation, that is, removal of suspended solids trapped in the floc
  • Filtration – removing particles from water
  • Desalination – Process of removing salt from water
  • Disinfection – for killing bacteria. Technology for WTP & WWTP is well

developed, and public designs are available that are used by many utilities (public or private). In addition, a number of private companies provide patented technology solutions for water treatment system. Automation of WTP and WWTP in general in developed countries. Capital costs, operating costs provide quality monitoring technology, available local skills usually determine the level of automation adopted for WTP system
