Drinking Water Treatment

Drinking water is usually processed from

  • ground water
  • surface water (rivers, lakes)
  • high salinity water (seawater, brackish water)

 

Hungarian national drinking water standards are given in the Governmental decree 201/2001.(X.25.).

Most common undesired components in water and methods for their reduction and removal.

Components

Technique

 

Suspended solids:

Filtration, ultrafiltration

 

Microorganisms:

Chemicals, termic, UV desinfection/ sterilization, ultrafiltration

 

Iron / Manganese:

Oxidation, filtration

 

Nitrate:

Nitrate removal by ion-exchange

 

Ammonia:

Ammonia oxidation / absorption

 

Methane:

Degassing

 

Arsenic:

Arsenic removal

 

Boron:

Boron removal by ion-exchange, reserve osmose

 

Other Toxic compounds:

Special treatment method

 

Treatment technology is elaborated according to the raw water characteristics. Adsorption, ion-exchange, membrane separation and other filtration techniques can be applied.

When unwanted components are removed content of the valuable components will remain unchanged, resulting in unchanged taste, odor and sensory values.
