Filtration / Adsorption

Efficient, cost-effective water treatment

Water and process water treatment with filtration and adsorption, using either pre-treatment or secondary treatment

Filtration is one of the oldest known water treatment processes. It is a very efficient and cost-effective process, characterised by excellent resilience and flexibility, that offers a wide range of potential applications.

Filtration processes are further divided into adsorption processes, such as activated carbon filtration, in which dissolved water constituents are adsorbed, and filtration processes that separate turbidity through surface or depth filtration.

We use the following filtration processes:

  • Gravel filtration                                              
  • Multi-layer filtration (hydro-anthracite, pumice, etc.)
  • Iron- and manganese-removal filters
  • Deacidification filters
  • Biologically active filters as fixed-bed bioreactors
  • Activated carbon filters
  • Zeolite filters
  • Special filter for heavy metal removal
  • Continuous filters

Our specialists for filtration and adsorption processes are on hand to advise you and suggest the most efficient and resource-saving plant solution to meet your requirements.
