Water Pre-treatment: Water pre-treatment with EC has proven effective in removing bacteria, silica and TSS prior to subsequent polishing with reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, photocatalytic.
Electrocoagulation has proven effective in treating sewage water, sewage sludge concentrations, and sewage sludge metal fixation sufficiently to enable land application. With the addition of some front end hardware to remove large solids, our system could remove both organic and man-made compounds, some of which are impossible to remove by chemical dosing. Internationally the scope for this type of work is huge and contracts appear regularly that our product will suit, one benefit of using our system on a large scale project would be that they can be retrofitted into existing infrastructure as easily as a new build, there are no special requirements to the design of the building other than having a supply of waste water and the means to distribute fresh water. As the products all contain the same modules, the initial cost and lead time required to establish the plant will be minimal compared to other methods, the modules all arrive on site and can be assembled with ease by a team of Engineers.
With microbeads being banned for use in cosmetics in the UK it wont be long before their use in other areas will come to a long overdue end. A similar product is use in some water treatment plants around the UK. Nurdles, sometimes called mermaid’s tears, BAFF media / Bio-Beads are tiny pellets of plastic.
They come from many sources and most pre-production industry plastic is supplied in the form of tiny pellets. There are at least 55 BAFF plants with Bio-Bead media in use in the UK.
With heavy rain or a simple system failure these beads can be washed straight in to rivers or seas causing a major worry to wild life.
Triton Cleantech could retro fit into these existing treatment plants and eliminate the use of plastic to treat water, moving closer to protect our oceans from the ever present danger of plastic polluting our oceans.
