Drinking Water Treatment Plants are built to treat ground and surface water sources found in nature for us to use or drink. These systems are mostly designed and constructed for 20.000 population and over with different types of units used. System design can depend on the flow(m3/day), quality(pollution parameters) and the distance from water source to treatment plant. Thus nearly all plants have their own different process applications.
Generally Drinking Water Treatment Plants consist of :
Physical Treatment, Aeration, Coagulation, Flocculation, Chemical Dosage Units, Sedimentation Units, Sludge Dewatering and Disinfection units.
To have an uniform and controlled hydraulic flow, the valve rooms and pumping stations are being used. The process can be controlled automatically with synchronized working system of dosage units and measurement units. The synchronization between units is done with PLC and similar automation works.
