Water Treatment Methods

Depending on the Water test report we will suggest a permanent solution for the purification of your water

Reverse Osmosis process for removing Arsenic from borewell or well water

If the test results show that there is Arsenic or other heavy metal poisoning of the well or borwell water, then the best way to purify well water will be to use a Reverse Osmosis or RO purifier unit. There are other methods to remove Arsenic from well water but RO is the most practical and reliable way to get rid of Arsenic from water. Arsenic is a major problem of borewell water in many parts of the world. Since Arsenic salts in well water has no smell or taste, you will not know about the presence of Arsenic in water unless the water is tested. So testing for Arsenic is imperative when using well water for drinking. Drinking water with Arsenic can cause severe damage to health. Arsenic poisoning is cumulative, that means any water Arsenic that gets into your body is not removed, but stays in the body and accumulates. As you continue to drink the Arsenic water, you are being slowly poisoned and with time it will cause severe health problems and early death. Arsenic and other heavy metals in well water is one of the most dangerous aspects of drinking well water. So you should have a fail safe water purifier system for Arsenic by installing a Point of Use – POE RO water purifier in the kitchen where water for drinking and cooking is taken. The POE RO should be in addition to the whole house well water purification system against Arsenic in the well water. Arsenic can be removed by oxidation with chlorine (Sodium Hypochlorite) or potassium permanganate or coagulation with ferric chloride and then filtering it. Activated alumina and ion exchange resins are also effective. The best option to purify Arsenic well water is by installing an RO plant for the whole house water supply.

For Smelly well water problem

Sometimes borewell water smells like rotten eggs due to the ground water being contaminated by sulphur compounds or ‘sulfur bacteria’ which causes Hydrogen Sulphide H2S gas to form in the well water. H2S or Hydrogen Sulphide in well water in very low concentrations can produce very bad rotten egg smell in water. In open wells it could be due to rotting organic matter This problem can be solved by fixing our water treatment plant which is specially designed for this odour removal. Our system will make it fresh and pure water.

For Muddy water problem

The main cause of muddy water is the excessive presence of higher turbdity and iron content in your water . Here you should go for our Water treatment plant which is suitable to remove this turbidity completely from your water. The higher amount of turbidity causes stains on your costly bathroom fitting,sanitary and tiles. The turbidity will be seen as yellowish, redish or slightly in orange color. It differes from place to place depends on the soil pattern. Sometimes this turbidity settles down on the bottom of your storage tanks and makes more dirty and might cloge your pipings too.

Removing excess Iron content

The maximum permissible limit of Iron as Fe in your water should be 0.3 ppm. If this limit exceeds, you will face several probelms in your water like color change, formation of an oily layer on top of water, smell, foggy water. This causes in rusting of pipings and damages tiles and fittings, rust all metals wherever water comes to contact, damages clothes too much, hairloss and itching of skin and of course many many internal health problems etc etc.Iron removal from open well or bore well water is important because Iron in water is a very common problem due to the fact that iron is found almost everywhere on the earth’s surface. We can completely remove this excessive presence of iron through FlowMax Iron Removal systems.

Pressure Sand Filters

Pressure Sand Filter is highly recommended for the removal of suspended & visible impurities like sand, dust particles & heavy metals etc.PSF is an ideal solution for the systems with high sediment, silt, sand, and turbidity. Our Sand filters are well established in media filtration technology. The sand filters are specially designed to take care of the range of suspended impurities.

Our unique design ensures the maximum utilization of the surface area, lesser pressure drop across the pressure bed and effective elimination of the impurities. The strength, stability and micro-porous character of filtration media make our sand filter suitable for virtually every application in the water treatment industry

Active carbon Filters

Activated carbon is used to remove pollutants from air or water streams, both in the field and in industrial process such as spill cleanup, groundwater remediation, drinking water filtration, air purification, and the capture of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Activated carbon filters and carbon filter media are also used in odor control and reverse osmosis applications. Activated carbon blankets are used to absorb fumes and odors from products such as new carpenting, cars, furniture and homes. Some of their features include, large adsorption volume, fast adsorption speed, heat resistance and chemical resistance.

Iron , Manganese and Arsenic Removal Filter

FlowMax offers a filtration technology, for the removal of  Iron, Manganese and Arsenic from ground water and surface water sources. The water filtration media has extremely high capabilities of removing both iron and manganese simultaneously through low cost catalytic oxidation and retention of precipitate. Sodium hydrochloride is used as the oxidizing agent. The benefit over manganese green sand filters is the higher removal efficiency and less stringent handling procedures required for sodium hydrochloride as opposed to potassium permanganate.
Birm is an efficient and economical method of removing dissolved iron and manganese compounds from raw water supplies. The physical characteristics of Birm provide an excellent filter media which is easily cleaned by backwashing to remove the precipitant. Birm is not consumed by iron removal and therefore offers a tremendous economic advantage over many other iron removal methods. Birm is not meant for removal of hydrogen sulfide or that “rotten egg” odor. A manganese greensand filter , or The Terminator air injection system is more suited for that task.

Water Softeners

Hard Water contains dissolved minerals in the form of Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg), and Iron (Fe). Removal of these minerals is accomplished by softening the water through an ion exchange process. As the water flows through the mineral tank, the dissolved minerals become attached to the resin, creating soft water.

Water softening is an important process, because the hardness of water in different applications is reduced during this process. When water is hard, it can clog pipes, damage boilers, heat exchangers, and many other devices. Water softening can prevent these negative effects. Hard water causes a higher risk of lime scale deposits in industrial, commercial and household water systems. Due to this lime scale build-up, pipes are blocked and the efficiency of hot boilers and tanks is reduced. This increases the cost of domestic water heating by about fifteen to twenty percent.

Industrial water softeners are designed to remove ions, which are positively charged. Softeners mainly remove calcium (Ca2+) and magnesium (Mg2+) ions. Calcium and magnesium are often referred to as ‘hardness minerals’. Softeners are sometimes even applied to remove iron. The softening devices are able to remove up to five milligrams per liter (5 mg/L) of dissolved iron. Softeners can operate automatic, semi-automatic, or manual. Each type is rated on the amount of hardness it can remove before regeneration is necessary. Commercial water softeners collect hardness minerals within its conditioning tank and from time to time flushes them away to drain.
Ion exchangers are often used for water softening. When an ion exchanger is applied for water softening, it will replace the calcium and magnesium ions in the water with other ions, for instance sodium or potassium. The exchanger ions are added to the ion exchanger reservoir as sodium and potassium salts (NaCl and KCl).

The FlowMax will suggest you an economical solution that viable to creates an effective result.
