Filtration and Disinfection
New South Wales, Australia
MAK Water was approached by the Australian National University to review their existing water treatment facilities and to provide solutions for ongoing process issues associated with this facility. MAK Water audited the facility and found that the existing process was inefficient and overcomplicated which resulted in process unreliability and high operations cost.
Based on the audit findings, MAK Water simplified the process using a modular Ultrafiltration / Ultraviolet (UF/UV) process plant. This solution was constructed according to project engineering and design specifications, and included the reuse of existing pumps and sensors already installed on-site. MAK Water provided site installation support and commissioning of the plant.
A state of art, remote controllable UF / UV and product water chlorination process was designed and installed by MAK Water providing the client reliability, product quality and process visibility.
