Bemboka 500kL/day Potable WTP
About this Project
Raw water delivered to the plant is sourced from a local river which contained hazards including pathogens, colour, and turbidity. These issues were addressed with a range of treatment processes. Raw water is pumped through self-cleaning screen filters to remove larger particulate that can damage the membrane surface. The filtered stream is then dosed with CO2, soda ash, and aluminium chlorohydrate coagulant, before entering a flocculation tank for contaminant agglomeration. Ultrafiltration membranes are utilised to effectively remove all remaining suspended solids and pathogens while improving aesthetics of the treated water.
The WTP is a fully automatic system that incorporates VSD controlled feed pump and transmitters for flow, pressure, as well as water analysis. A CIP system has also been installed to enable self-cleaning of the membranes and minimise downtime.
