Water Treatment

Mechanical Processes such as Microfiltation, Ultrafiltration, Nanofiltration and Reverse Osmosis.

These are used as a physical barrier to remove particulate matter from 0.1 to 0.0001 micron.

Mechanical filtration in water treatment involves the removal of suspended particles and impurities from water through physical barriers. In this process, water passes through a porous medium that traps particles, sediment, and debris. The choice of filter depends on the specific application and the size of particles targeted.

Mechanical filtration is a crucial step in water treatment, as it helps improve water clarity and reduces the load on subsequent treatment stages, The effectiveness of mechanical filtration in removing viruses depends on various factors, including the pore size of the membrane and the operating conditions of the filtration system. Typically, membranes with small pore sizes (in the nanometer range) are capable of efficiently removing viruses from water, providing safe and clean water.
