Water treatment

Water is our most precious raw material and our quality of life is directly dependent on the quality of the water which we consume. Given the shortage of water in many regions and the declining water quality in densely populated conurbations, it is destined to become a cost-intensive commodity.

The fact that the self-cleaning capacity of open water resources is limited and an overload (with both degradable and non-degradable substances) can cause serious ecological harm began to be recognised some decades ago. The intensive water industry in Central and Western Europe, especially in the industrial production sector, makes the prudent use of this limited and precious resource, water, imperative.

Impairment of the self-cleaning capacity of water resources by waste water has led to the imposition of a number of statutory requirements in recent years.

When cleaning waste water from households and public establishments and also waste water from major industrial plants and from commercial and medium-sized enterprises, cost-intensive clarifying and cleaning operations are necessary in almost all cases and for all installations. Often optimisation of the production sequences is the most important step to reduce the pollution burden and waste water quantity and in turn cut the general cost of waste water treatment.

Procedures and products for phase separation involving precipitation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration and ultra-filtration; procedures and products for oil separation, heavy metal removal, cyanide and chromate depollution, CSB value reduction, neutralisation and UV wet oxidation are available in the form of stationary and mobile waste water cleaning facilities from WAT. The decision on the right process for your particular project and facility must be individual assessed and analysed by our engineers and planners.
