AGUAPODS 40

The AguaPods 40 Model is a standard system designed to treat most surface waters (river & lake) up to a flow rate between 500 m3/d and 1,000 m3/d. The flow rate depends on the water quality the end user provides AguaPods, we caliber every aguapod to insure clean drinking water.

These systems require basic site preparation such as slab foundation, power, influent water hook up and treated water storage/distribution.

Small and medium-sized communities (500 to 5,000 m3/day), AguaPods designs and manufactures prefabricated water treatment plants that purify water to the most stringent quality standards. Available with or without housing, they are installed as a single unit between the source of the water to be treated and the distribution network. These plants are designed according to the specific parameters of a project and allow for an anticipated increase in water flow. Most of these treatment plants would be shipped in one or several 40 ft containers.


“Depending on application and water characteristics provided to us, the following add-ons may be required: Carbon Filtration, Ion Exchange, Reverse Osmosis … Whatever the needs are, our talented engineering team can design the Aguapods solution to meet your needs.”

Technical Specifications


Application
Treatment of freshwater (lake/river) or underground water contaminated by surface water.
Turnkey Concept
Prefabricated and pretested prior to delivery to client for accelerated implementation. Can be delivered on a platform or with own housing (maritime container for international market).
4 Treatment Steps
1) Vortex prefiltration to remove sediment larger than 74 μm
2) Ozone generation on ceramic plate using ambient air
3) Pressurized contact tank for the diffusion of ozone in water with brief contact time < 5 minutes
4) Final filtration through ultrafiltration membranes to remove turbidity and pathogens
Optional: biological filtration using biologically active carbon for water with high organic matter content
Ozonation
• Ozone(O3) is a natural gas produced by exposing air to an electrical field
• O3 is the most powerful oxidizer that can be used safely to treat water
• Elimination of pathogens and viruses
• Oxidation of iron and manganese
• Colour and odour reduction
• Safe and controlled production on site (ozone detector, alarms, materials compatible with O3)
• O3 analyser at reaction tank outlet with automatic adjustment of O3 generation based on fluctuations in raw water quality
• Effective ozone diffusion at start of process chain prevents fouling of membranes, which otherwise require daily chemical cleaning, as is the case of most membrane processes available on the market.
SCADA
Highly automated “intelligent” system reducing need for human intervention and providing enhanced water quality monitoring. Preventive use of collected data to anticipate variations in operating conditions.
Telemetry
Monitoring and intervention from a remote location through Internet-based telemetry.
Design Flow Rate
500m3/d – 5,000m3/d
Electric Power Requirements
Min. 220 volts - max. 600 volts (North America). Can be adapted for international markets.
Filter Cleaning
Prefilter water only. Membranes = air and water.
% Efficiency
85-90% (vol. of water produced / volume of raw water x 100).
Disinfection Logs
In cold water T= 1.0 Celsius (ozone and membrane filtration):
• Giardia = 3.3+ logs
• Cryptosporidium =4+ logs
• Virus = 7.1+ logs
