We have an estimated 80% share of this market. Customers include the parastatal water authorities such as Rand Water, Umgeni Water, City of Cape Town, Johannesburg Water, and Magalies Water, amongst others. Municipalities throughout South Africa use our Roots-type blower package units for filter backwashing in their treatment plants for potable water.
Types of Wastewater Treatment Plants
There are two wastewater treatment plants namely chemical or physical treatment plants, and biological wastewater treatment plants. Biological waste treatment plants use biological matter and bacteria to break down waste matter. Alternatively, Physical waste treatment plants use chemical reactions as well as physical processes to treat wastewater.
While Biological treatment systems are ideal for treating wastewater from households and business premises, Physical wastewater treatment plants are mostly used to treat wastewater from industries, factories, and manufacturing firms.
According to Wikipedia,
“Wastewater treatment is a process used to remove contaminants from wastewater or sewage and convert it into an effluent that can be returned to the water cycle with minimum impact on the environment, or directly reused. The latter is called water reclamation because treated wastewater can be used for other purposes. The treatment process takes place in a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), often referred to as a Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) or a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP). Pollutants in municipal wastewater (households and small industries) are removed or broken down.”
