Water purification is the process of removing undesirable chemicals, biological contaminants, suspended solids and gases from water. The goal is to produce water fit for a specific purpose. Most water is disinfected for human consumption (drinking water), but water purification may also be designed for a variety of other purposes, including fulfilling the requirements of medical, pharmacological, chemical and industrial applications.

Varied water purification methods

The methods used in water purification & filtration include physical processes such as filtration, sedimentation, and distillation; biological processes such as slow sand filters or biologically active carbon; chemical processes such as flocculation and chlorination and the use of electromagnetic radiation such as ultraviolet light. 

Choosing a method for Your Project

Varied techniques are used to remove contaminants like fine solids, micro-organisms, dissolved inorganic & organic materials, or environmental-persistent pharmaceutical pollutants. The choice of method will depend on the quality of the water being treated, the allocated budget for the treatment, and the quality expected of the processed water.

Work with a Filtration Specialist

Working with an experienced filtration specialist can help you make the best treatment plan for your specific process, as there are a lot of variables for each application and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Contact a filtration specialist to discuss your water purification & filtration requirements to ensure your goals are accomplished for long term success.
