Humans can go weeks without food, but only days without safe drinking water. Absolutely essential to our health and welfare, its sustainable production is so important that it is regulated in almost every country in the world.
Water sources vary from ground water, to lakes and rivers, to the sea itself. However, few water sources remain pristine enough to be consumed without some form of treatment. Dow Water & Process Solutions provide many of the critical technologies that enable the production of safe drinking water throughout the world, including:
DOW ™ ULTRAFILTRATION (UF) can remove particulates that make water turbid as well as pathogens such as bacteria and viruses. It is also an excellent way to protect FILMTEC™ membranes. In addition, the TEQUATIC™ PLUS fine particle filter is an excellent choice for difficult water in nonpotable applications that has very high and highly variable total suspended solids.
FILMTEC reverse osmosis (RO) elements are the core technology to treat brackishness and desalinate sea water
Dow ion exchange (IX) resins and adsorptive media can be used to selectively remove natural and man-made trace contaminants. Follow the links to learn more about these contaminants and their specific treatments.
The pages in this section offer information on the municipal drinking water treatment technologies and products offered by Dow Water & Process Solutions. However, the topic is too broad to be explained fully within the limitations of the medium. We encourage you to contact us for more information and consultation prior to making final decisions on your municipal drinking water treatment technology .
