Arsenic removal from ground water
Chile / region of Putre: Trunz supplied a containerized and solar powered system that removes arsenic and other contamination from the source water and provides safe, clean water to the surrounding community.
The system treats 5 m3 per hour and is equipped with a pre-filtration and ultrafiltration system which is automatically backwashing in order to avoid any performance inefficiency. In addition to that, maintenance requirements and replacement of components/filters are reduced significantly. A large benefit for the local operators. The system is operating fully independent from any other infrastructure as it contains from A – Z all necessary equipment/components. Power requirements to operate the unit are covered by the integrated photovoltaic system.
As part of the project, the local operators where trained by Trunz twice in order to accelerate know-how transfer from Trunz to the local operators - who are responsible for daily operation and maintenance of the system.
