Incomparable honest advice to save you millions from in-house, qualified, specialist engineers. With a large african footprint, our modular water treatment systems are ‘plug and play’ for a fast set up to clean water.
BWT Africa will advise you, from the initial water analysis stage through, plant design and construction to commissioning and maintenance of your water treatment plant, based on your specific needs. All of our processes are carried out with maximum efficiency and commitment and implement all the legal, technical and commercial safeguards.
Owing to its quality, water that comes straight from the raw water source can rarely be directly used for drinking , commercial, production and manufacturing operations. Treatment of effluent or process water provides an opportunity to recover this valuable resource for reuse within operations.
Our research and development centres all over the world are therefore working on developing innovative technologies and processes for treating drinking water, boiler and cooling water, manufacturing, production operations and effluent treatment.
BWT offers specific solutions for a wide variety of industries, regardless of the existing water quality and the needs the water ultimately has to satisfy:
Operators and administrators in the real estate sector, mining, housing associations, hotels, food and beverage industry, automotive and aviation industry, chemical and oil industry, steel and electrical industry, for the manufacture of paper and glass
Hospitals, therapeutic spa facilities, care homes
Local drinking water supply, communal swimming pools, spas, hospitals, hotels, office blocks or schools
Water clarification is the process of solid liquid separation by which suspended solids and particulate matter are removed; often with help from flocculants and coagulants which increase settling. Our clarifiers are rectangular with lamella packing for space optimization and removes suspended solids in a more efficient and compact manner than traditional clarifiers.
At BWT Africa we utilize various filtration methods to remove impurities from water. It involves passing water through various types of media, cartridges or materials.
Hollow fibre or semipermeable membranes are utilized to separate contaminants for water. Membranes are a thin film barrier that are engineered to have a specific pore size that allows certain components to pass while blocking others. These membranes include microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF), nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO).
Chemical dosing can be a low-cost solution to water conditioning. Our advance chemical dosing systems include, but are not limited to the following:
Coagulation/flocculation, disinfection, pH adjustment, membrane pre-treatment, scale and corrosion control/prevention.
Ion exchange is a purification process whereby ions are exchanged between a solution and an ion exchange resin. This is a process that can be reversed, and the resin can be regenerated for re-use.
Common applications of ion exchange include the demineralisation/deionisation, specific contaminant removal and softening.
Water softening is the process of reducing the totals hardness of the water, by removing/reducing calcium and magnesium ions. Hard water can lead to scale buildup in pipes, appliance, fixtures and reduce soap effectiveness.
