Pretreatment Plants

Pretreatment PlantsWe are representatives for various types of water purification equipment. We can also help engineer water purification systems to meet your water quality requirements. As well as service provider and chemicals distributor / sealer, plant and equipment can also help your site to remain bacteria, scale and corrosion free. Water treatment plant and equipment can also assist in reducing your environmental impact and reducing water costs and usage.

Paramount Flow: is proud to offer a broad range of equipment to compliment our chemical feed programs and provide you with the most reliable treatment results. We offer a broad range of Water treatment plant and equipment, Analytical Testing, Chemical Feed & Control equipment from leading industry providers. Hard waters contain a number of substances that become less soluble as temperatures vary. This is the main cause of scaling in water systems. Scale is undesirable in water systems since it coats the inside of piping and acts as an insulator. If left untreated it can lead to blockages and system shut down.

Raw water may be pre-treated prior to the main processes within the water treatment plant. Examples of pre-treatment are raw water detention in reservoirs, algae control, and treatment to remove metals such as manganese and iron.

Raw water is stored in reservoirs primarily to provide for periods when other water sources are in short supply. However, this can also greatly improve the quality of the water prior to entering the treatment plant. In addition to allowing much of the sediment to settle out, many harmful micro-organisms (pathogens) will naturally die-off in water over a period of time. Conversely, raw water detention also provides an opportunity for recontamination by birds, wave action, or algal blooms. Overall, detention of raw water is beneficial.

Raw water reservoirs are sometimes prone to blooms of blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) or other types of algae, particularly during the warmer months of the year. Algal blooms can cause unpleasant tastes and odours in the water. Some species of blue-green algae can also produce toxins that may be harmful if consumed. Activated carbon is commonly used to remove algal toxins and unpleasant tastes and odors from the water in these rare events. Algal blooms may also be addressed within the reservoir by addition of an algaecide such as copper sulphate, or by aeration and desertification of the water body.

High levels of manganese or iron in the water can cause an unpleasant taste or staining of plumbing fixtures. To reduce the levels of manganese or iron, the raw water reservoir may be aerated or the raw water may be treated with an oxidising agent such as potassium permanganate. Fortunately, Goulburn Valley Water does not generally experience levels of manganese or iron that require pre-treatment.
