Water Purification

Water purification is the removal of contaminants from untreated water to produce water that is pure enough for a specific purpose. Most water is disinfected for human consumption (drinking water) but water purification is also required for a variety of chemical, industrial, medical and pharmaceutical processes. General methods are:

  • physical filtration which includes media filtration, microfiltration, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis.
  • chemical filtration which includes coagulation, flocculation, ion exchange (demineralization, water softening), disinfection, electrodeionization
  • biological treatment

Electrodeionization

The EDI process produces industrial process water of very high purity, using less than 95% of the chemical products used in the conventional ion exchange processes. Two separation technologies, membranes and ion exchange, are combined into one sealed, self-contained unit. The distinct spiral-wound design of DOW™ EDI modules offer a chemical-free alternative to mixed-bed ion exchange resins for polishing RO permeate—an ideal choice for high purity water needs when combined with RO membranes and ion exchange resins.

Ultrafiltration

Ultrafiltration (UF) is becoming the preferred process for water filtration over conventional technology such as media filtration in many applications. Ultrafiltration provides safe, high quality effluent that can be used for a multitude of applications. Typically, ultrafiltration will remove bacteria, viruses colloidal materials, and silt from water.

Dow’s ultrafiltration modules (UF), features high clean-ability, low chemical consumption, high recovery, superior combination of mechanical properties and chemical resistance set the standard for RO pre-treatment, drinking water production, and wastewater treatment applications. The SFP/SFD series offers customers a proven product with a long list of installations world-wide.
