Borehole Water Purification Machine
A borehole is a very convenient source of water supply in areas where there’s no connection to city council and/or other water supply government or private organizations. However borehole water has a great drawback; salinity. In most parts of the country, borehole water has some amount of salinity and in some areas it’s more saline than others. Consequently, it makes it not very usable for most basic things like drinking, cooking, washing clothes etc. Apart from salt, there are other impurities in this water. In order to make the water more user friendly, you need a borehole water purification machine. Saset is a leading supplier and installer of borehole water purification machines in Kenya.
How a borehole water purification machine works
A borehole water purification machine can use two methods of water purification; chemical water purification or physical water filtration.
Physical water filtration involves use of screens, sand filtration or cross flow filtration membranes. On the other hand, chemical water purification uses chemicals. It is worth noting that chemical water purification does not filter solids. It just purifies water by killing dangerous organisms. The most common chemical used is chlorine.
Types of water filtration processes:
Reverse Osmosis purification involves passage of water or other solvents through a semi-permeable membrane. It is very good in desalination (the process of removing salt) of water. Though it is one of the most effective methods of water purification, it’s not good at removing bacteria. It’s also worth noting that in some instances, it wastes a lot of water like four or five liters for every liter they produce.
Ultra Violet filtration
Ultra Violet filtration uses a UV lamp to produce UV-C rays that penetrate into the body of pathogens and destroys them. These rays have the ability to kill 99.9% of the microorganisms.
Ultrafiltration process uses hydrostatic pressure to force water through a semi-permeable membrane. This semi-permeable membrane filters bacteria and other types of microorganisms. It’s also good in removing bad odour in the water.
A good water purifier combines more than one type of water purification mechanism for maximum efficiency. You should therefore go for one that gives you the best output depending on the water source you have.
