Water treatment plants equipped with conventional technology are particularly suitable both for the treatment of surface water (rivers, lakes and dams) and for well waters requiring the elimination of specific pollutants (iron, manganese, arsenic, etc.). In the construction of these plants conventional water purification technologies are used, such as sieving, oxidation, coagulation, decantation, sand filtration, active carbon, disinfection, etc. And the entire treatment processing equipment is built on structures similar to those of the 20 or 40 feet sea containers.

The treatment line of this type of plants can be
equipped with the following technologies:

  • Pumping from the intake of clarified water, etc.
  • Initial roughing: elimination of thick and floating particles through hydrocyclone.
  • Oxidation reactions: to precipitate soluble metal ions (As, Mn, etc.).
  • Dosage of reagents such as oxidative compounds for pre-disinfection and coagulants to facilitate the precipitation of colloids and formation of floccules.
  • Lamellar decantation for the sedimentation of the floccules formed in the previous stage minimizing the space required for it.
  • Filtration of sand, AFM and active carbon until the final quality is obtained.
  • Post-treatment: on-line chlorination through the dosing of chlorine gas or hypochlorite.

And this solution is offered in the following models
according to their treatment capacity:
