Water Treatment

Your municipal water treatment facility is responsible for providing apparently limitless drinking water from your tap. Water treatment facilities often take water from a natural source, such as a river, dam, or well, and purify it so that it is safe for humans to consume on a large scale. Coagulation and flocculation are the first steps in the complex process. The natural particles found in the original water supply are removed throughout this procedure. Coagulants are added to the water to bind the particles together. A common coagulant is aluminum sulfites, which has the opposite charge of the suspended particles and, when neutralized, causes them to cling together.

Simple to complex water treatment devices are needed to accomplish such delicate task. Devices such as Ultra Filtration (UF) Plant, Reverse Osmosis (RO) Plant, Disc Tube RO/NF (DTRO/DTNF), and nano-bubble technology are the key trends in this industry. Nostra taps into the leading world-class suppliers to address such challenges.
