Universal Environmental Technology (UET) and its partners around the world are constantly installing new systems and developing new solutions for ecological water treatment.
Here are some recent updates.
Not exactly, but UET’s system sized for a compact area in a food production plant was designed to contaminate (yes, contaminate) the water system so that the plant could run constant quality assurance tests on their filters for seven different lines. The project was complex due to the weight limitation of the floors, so the water had to be carefully distributed over the surface area.
UET AFRICA hosted SASOL during a roadshow in South Africa to visit UET chemical free water treatment installations. These installations are reducing potable water consumption and eliminating the use of chemicals in various cooling system applications. SASOL is an international energy and chemical company working in 32 countries, which builds and operates world class facilities producing various high-value products, including liquid fuels and low-carbon electricity.
In each UET system, supply water is passing through a series of reaction chambers which are configured to apply electrolysis to restore the supply water’s mineral balance to an optimum equilibrium. The chemical free water treatment produces biocides through the process of electro-chlorination, which eliminates bacteria and viruses in the water system. The electrolysis process also promotes oxidation and causes electrocoagulation and flocculation, which remove heavy metals from the water. Below is a comparison before (2017) and after (2018) implementing the UET water treatment on a large gland water service system. This supply water source is a combination of six different boreholes.
