All About Waste Water Treatment
Wastewater is used water. It includes substances such as human waste, food scraps, oils, soaps and chemicals. Waste water comes from several sources, such as domestic waste water (sewage), agricultural run-off and industrial waste (as a by-product of manufacturing). Waste water from each of these sources poses different characteristics and challenges, including the types of toxic chemicals present.
There are three main stages of the wastewater treatment process, known as primary, secondary and tertiary water treatment. In some applications, more advanced treatment is required, known as quaternary water treatment. This stage deals with part per million to part per billion levels of contamination and often involves oxidation or fine filtration processes. Each of these stages tackles different pollutants, with water becoming cleaner as it moves through the phases.
Water Engineering Technologies is an advanced water company providing industrial water treatment equipment to manufacturing facilities.
Waste water varies greatly dependent on the application it has been used for and therefore the wastewater management process must be carefully selected with the effluent quality in mind. Considerations must also be made for the expected water waste quality target following treatment.
We are able to provide a range of services in this regard, most prominently, extensive basic engineering and design of treatment plants at both conceptual design and operational stages, to ensure the designed is primed to customer requirements. We have developed significant national and international water and waste water treatment capability to deliver technical project services.
In the wastewater sector, our solutions contribute to customized, efficient and cost-effective solutions covering the complete wastewater treatment cycle, for both packaged and permanent installations, large and small scale:
- Primary Treatment
- Secondary Treatment
- Tertiary Treatment & Reuse
- Sludge Treatment
- Odor Control
It should also be stressed that the intended use of the treated water is also relevant to the process and cost. Producing water that is fit to be used for cleaning or similar functions is not lesser tedious process than producing potable water. Currently, in the Middle East, treated water is primarily produced for irrigation purposes. However, there is still a tendency in the country for tap water to be used, even at scale, due to its low cost & psychological reason. This presents a challenge it is generally recognised that using treated waste water for these use cases is a more sustainable solution for the future generations and that this is likely to be more prominent way to moving forward.
Sewage Treatment Plant
Sewage treatment, or domestic wastewater treatment, is the process of removing contaminants from wastewater and household sewage, both runoff (effluents) and domestic. It includes physical, chemical, and biological processes to remove physical, chemical and biological contaminants.
Its objective is to produce a waste stream (or treated effluent) and a solid waste or sludge suitable for discharge or reuse back into the environment. This material is often inadvertently contaminated with many toxic organic and inorganic compounds
Keeping the diverse requirements of customers in mind, we are instrumental in providing Sewage Water Treatment Plant (STP). Made from finest quality raw material these plants can be used to treat water for industrial utilities. Sewage treatment is the procedure of pre-treatment, nutrient removal capable of capturing particles as small as ten microns, and disinfection using both UV and chlorine from wastewater, primarily from household sewage.
