Waterguide Generation units

Which generation units are available for water treatment?

Generation systems for water treatment are technical units that purify water for specific industrial applications. The systems include various technologies and processes to remove impurities and achieve certain purity and quality requirements. These depend on the specific application. The following producer systems for water treatment can be distinguished:

  • Reverse osmosis systems: These systems use a semi-permeable membrane to remove impurities such as dissolved solids, heavy metals and certain organic compounds from the water. They are effective in producing high purity water for various applications, including the pharmaceutical industry.
  • Distillation plants: Distillation plants vaporise water to separate it from impurities such as minerals, heavy metals and organic compounds, and then condense the steam. This is a reliable method for producing high-purity water, especially for critical applications such as the production of injection solutions.
  • Ion exchange systems: These systems use special resins to remove dissolved ions in the water by exchanging them with other ions. They are often used to reduce hardness formers such as calcium and magnesium as well as other dissolved salts.
  • Activated carbon filter systems: Activated carbon filters remove organic impurities, chlorine, chloramines and some heavy metals from the water by adsorption. They could be part of water treatment systems to improve the odour, taste and purity of the water.
  • UV disinfection systems: UV disinfection systems use ultraviolet radiation to destroy microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses and parasites in water. They are effective in removing pathogenic organisms and used as part of water treatment systems for drinking water supply and other applications.

These generator systems can be used individually or in combination, depending on the specific requirements and quality of the source water and the end applications of the purified water.
