EUROWATER's pressure filter plants are a main part of our water treatment solutions. We have more than 2,500 references and 300 service agreements within the field of water supply. We believe that this reflects our experience and level of quality.

Why treat raw water?

The raw water which is pumped up through bore wells in most cases has a low level of oxygen. On the other hand, it contains a considerable amount of carbon dioxide (CO2). Often, the water also contains large amounts of iron and manganese. 

The quality of the raw water determines the complexity of the water treatment. EUROWATER offers a complete treatment of the water.

Private waterworks with a treatment capacity of 2 x 35 m³/h. The solution consists of harmonic raw water abstraction, pressure filter plant, aeration, degasser, and rinse pump for backwash, frequency-regulated pumping plant, and complete SCADA system

A EUROWATER waterworks

An example of a EUROWATER waterworks for treatment of the ground water is illustrated and described below. 

1. Raw water

When the ground water is pumped up from the bore well, the raw water is led directly to the pressure filter plant.

2. Aeration equipment

The aeration equipment consists of a compressor unit and control air system.

3. Oxydation and filtration

The oxydation and filtration take place in a pressure filter plant where the water is aerated in order to supply a sufficient oxygen content to the water so that the present quality requirements are met.

Pressure filter plants are dimensioned on the basis of the quality of the raw water and the filling is put together individually according to the task for neutralization of aggressive carbon dioxide and for capture of iron, manganese, ammonium, and mechanical impurities.

4. Clean water tank

After the oxydation and filtration, the drinking water is stored in a clean water tank before it is distributed to the consumer.

5. Blower and rinse pump for backwash

The substances which are detained in the filter are removed at the backwash. Periodic rinsings at which frequency, intensity, and duration are laid down as needed.

6. Distribution

The distribution takes places by the means of a frequency-controlled pumping plant.

7. Control (SRO/PLC)

The entire process is controlled, regulated, and monitored centrally from an automatic control system.
