Oxygen for drinking water treatment
Drinking water is the most important foodstuff. It is not only suitable for drinking and cooking, but is also used for personal care and to clean objects. In order to meet the constantly growing demand for drinking water, both wastewater and fresh groundwater need to be treated.
Oxygen assists various processes used in the treatment of drinking water. It is therefore possible to clean contaminated water by adding oxygen. The addition of oxygen causes bacteria to multiply in the dirty water. Such bacteria are activated and assist with water treatment, e.g. by destroying carbon and other dirt particles. Furthermore, oxygen can be used to treat groundwater. Groundwater often contains manganese, iron and ammonium. These components form a crust and cause damage e.g. the pipeline systems. Oxygen oxidises these substances, which can subsequently be filtered out of the water as oxide particles. Artificially produced oxygen with a purity of 93% has a very high level of solubility, significantly increases the oxygen saturation concentration in the water, and therefore supports water treatment.
With our oxygen generators, we supply high quality solutions for the stationary and mobile production of oxygen for different applications, including for low volume requirements.
