Particulate removal for nitrate reduction plant

Christ Kennicott Water Technology Ltd, Severn Trent Water

Nitrate removal plant

Christ Kennicott has been at the forefront of ion exchange technology for over 100 years, manufacturing ion exchange systems that produce quality drinking and process water for installations worldwide.

Nitrate removal plants incorporate vessels with ion exchange resin to remove nitrates from raw water. It is vital that any particulates, such as sand or grit, in the water are removed to prevent damage to the sensitive resin beads and stop the risk of blockages.

Particulate removal with BOLLFILTER

Nitrates can seep into the water table through the use of agricultural fertilisers and Christ Kennicott Water Technology is supplying a series of nitrate removal systems to Severn Trent Water for un-manned borehole water treatment plants. The skid-mounted systems incorporate BOLLFILTERs to provide particulate removal (down to 50 microns). Each skid is fitted with a Self-Cleaning BOLLFILTER Automatic plus a standby manual filter linked to a remote alarm. The BOLLFILTER Automatic, which is set to backflush on a regular basis or if the system pressure drops, prevents potential blockages in the Christ Kennicott equipment.

Glyn Davies, Project Engineer with CKWT, explains the importance of the filtration system. “With the drive towards unmanning through the water industry, it is vital that our systems feature a reliable, BOLLFILTER Automatic  system to prevent blockages. BOLLFILTERs proved to be a cost-effective solution for Christ Kennicott.”
