TIPS
     
DiagramDrinking water is usually sourced from either surface waters (lakes, rivers, or streams) or from groundwater. Surface waters are characterized by higher organics and turbidity and generally require several process steps in order to treat the water to drinking water quality. Groundwaters are characterized by low turbidity and organics. They sometimes have their own, relatively unique, issues such as arsenic, hardness, iron, or manganese which require special processes to remove.

Scinor’s SMT600 membranes with 0.1 micron pore size provide solutions for nearly all drinking water sources. Without any pretreatment, these ultrafiltration membranes remove all solids including bacteria, protozoa, giardia cysts, and crypto oocysts. When unique source water characteristics present themselves, simple pretreatment steps can be employed upstream to meet regulatory goals – this is the case for TOC reduction where upstream coagulation can reduce levels by 50%. This is also the case for arsenic, iron, and managanese removal where upstream aeration will reduce levels to below the regulatory threshold.

In certain arid regions, seawater is utilized for drinking water and in these applications Scinor membranes provide protection of Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration membranes, optimizing the overall process.
