Drinking Water Treatment


Drinking water is usually processed from

  • ground water
  • surface water (rivers, lakes)
  • high salinity water (seawater, brackish water)

Hungarian national drinking water standards are given in the Governmental decree 201/2001.(X.25.).

Most common undesired components in water and methods for their reduction and removal.

Components Technique
Suspended solids: Filtration, ultrafiltration
Microorganisms: Chemicals, termic, UV desinfection/ sterilization, ultrafiltration
Iron / Manganese: Oxidation, filtration
Nitrate: Nitrate removal by ion-exchange
Ammonia: Ammonia oxidation / absorption
Methane: Degassing
Arsenic: Arsenic removal
Boron: Boron removal by ion-exchange, reverse osmosis
Other Toxic compounds: Special treatment method

Treatment technology is elaborated according to the raw water characteristics. Adsorption, ion-exchange, membrane separation and other filtration techniques can be applied.

When unwanted components are removed content of the valuable components will remain unchanged, resulting in unchanged taste, odor and sensory values.


  • cost-effective solution – low operation cost
  • low electric energy demand
  • low chemical demand
  • industrial quality
  • for municipalities: complex service with assembly of tender
  • drinking water supply for companies
  • aesthetic design
