Reverse Osmosis and UV for a Pig Farm
An experienced water treatment installer we have worked with extensively was asked by a pig farmer for a quick turnaround to provide water for a recently installed pig unit.
The water analysis showed the following:
– Elevated turbidity
– High Iron, Aluminium and Fluorides
– The high sodium levels were of particular concern
The requirement was to treat 15 m3 per day, the following equipment was specified and supplied by J&F:
1 x chlorine dosing station for the disinfection to reduce the high TVCs
1 x backwashing turbidity unit using Filter Ag+ filter media & WS1 control valve
1 x carbon backwashing unit using Aquasorb CS activated coconut based carbon for de-chlorination & WS1 control valve
1 x 24 m3 per day Reverse Osmosis unit with automatic anti-scalent dosing
1 x 2 m3 per hour UV disinfection unit with 5 micron pre-filter
The equipment was specified, supplied and installed all within a three week period. The compact design also helped due to space constraints.
