Water treatment is a process that has been around in one form or another for many, many years. It generally involves a process to improve the quality of water for a number of end-uses, one of which is the production of purified drinking water. In more recent times and due to a need for mobile water treatment facilities, containerization has been employed to build these mobile, self-contained treatment plants. In this post, well take a closer look at containerization and how its an emerging trend in the water purification industry.

WATER TREATMENT EXPLAINED

As mentioned in the intro, water treatment is about applying processes to clean up or purify water for multitudes of purposes. It could be a simple process of filtration to remove debris before using the water for industrial purposes, such as cooling down machinery as its being used. Distilled water is often used as a coolant in the radiators of vehicles. A degree of water purification often takes place when that waters end-use is designed for irrigating crops. More stringent processes are employed to turn natural water into potable water thats safe to drink and free from bacteria and parasites.

The processes for treating raw water so its fit for human consumption involves settling and filtration to remove debris, disinfecting to destroy microbes and pathogens - which is generally achieved with chlorination - flocculation to remove solids and, in the case of saltwater distillation and desalination to remove the salt, resulting in freshwater thats safe to drink.

Operations for cleansing water, depending on the ultimate purpose, can be gigantic industrial operations, or they could be something as small as the filtration system on your backyard swimming pool.

Containerized water treatment offers a mobile solution.

HOW CONTAINERIZED WATER TREATMENT IS REVOLUTIONIZING THE INDUSTRY

Shipping containers, on the surface, may not seem like they serve many purposes other than to be used to securely transport goods across land and sea, or used as storage facilities. In modern times people have come to see the value and versatility of the humble shipping container though. Nowadays, both new and used shipping containers are being modified, chopped up, stripped down and remodelled for just about any purpose you can imagine.

After all, the basic structure is already in place and shipping containers are built robustly so they can withstand the rigours of intense travel and multiple uses.

Now, shipping containers are being utilised to create mobile water treatment plants for all manner of water purification purposes. These treatment plants can be fully assembled inside of either 20-foot or 40-foot containers or, for smaller applications, even the 10-foot shipping container. In fact, cargo containers are the perfect design to house water treatment equipment and each treatment plant can be fully mobile. Its simply a matter of loading the self-contained plant onto the back of a container truck and transporting it to its destination.

On top of that, shipping containers can also be used as temperature control units when the water treatment facility is used in particularly hot or cold climates.

One of the most common uses of a containerized water treatment plant is to produce pure drinking water. This can be achieved with raw water or seawater, depending on the type of treatment plant you require. This concept makes the containerized water treatment facility the perfect solution for providing island resorts with potable water for staff and guests, without the need to constantly ship in clean water. It can all be produced on-site.
