Pre- & Post-Filtration in Water Treatment

Pretreatment can be simple mechanical filtration in water treatment

With certain water parameters, an essential aspect of effective contaminant removal is pre-treatment of the raw water before reaching the primary system. This is true whether the application is for potable water, commercial, industrial or environmental usage. Without a proper understanding of the water chemistry and parameters that affect system performance—whether it is a media or membrane system—high operational costs or non-performance will result.

Pre-treatment can be simple mechanical filtration for suspended solids, coagulation or dispersant chemical addition, chlorine or other oxidation chemical addition or removal, and/or removal of organics or other contaminants that can foul or otherwise diminish system performance and require costly operation and maintenance.

Depending on the application, such as for potable water, the treated effluent may require pH correction or disinfection prior to the distribution. AdEdge offers a variety of post-treatment system modules for chlorination, pH adjustment and others, which may be desirable to achieve final water quality.
