Water treatment is most people’s first reaction to the concept of filtration, however, filtration is used in a wide range of applications in water treatment. Water filtration is much more than just water coming out of the tap. Industrial water and desalination are both important parts of it.

Our need for water for domestic and commercial purposes increases yearly as our population increases. We must not only do a good job of purifying our tap water to ensure that we have what we need for our daily lives. We also need to do a good job of purifying industrial water to protect our existing clean water resources, ensure industrial production needs and recycle water.

For many regions with drought and scarce freshwater resources, desalination is an important source of water. RO system is a perfect solution for desalination, also prefiltration is also essential in this process. Brother Filtration not only offers high-quality RO membranes and UF membranes but also manufactures a wide range of filter cartridges and filter housings, to provide a full filtration solution for customers.

One of the most valuable resources in the world is water. Brother Filtration, as a professional and experienced filtration expert, designs and manufactures high flow series, depth filter series, and depth pleated filter series for water treatment. If you want to know more about this industry, you can read the introduction for seawater desalination, municipal water and industrial water treatment.

What is water treatment and why is it so important?

For many commercial and industrial applications that reuse process water and wastewater, filtration is crucial. Pre-filtration is actually necessary when pumping wastewater from places like a refinery, food/beverage, textile, or oil-produced water application because these typical applications typically have a large level of suspended solids.

To make sure that the treated water fulfills the necessary discharge or reuse standard, these applications often include many filtration and treatment procedures. Additionally, filtration in water treatment provides lower operational costs for systems that polish water downstream.

The goal of the procedure known as “water treatment” is to eradicate and/or reduce contamination or undesirable qualities of water. It entails several operations (physical, chemical, physicochemical, and biological).

Obtaining water with the proper characteristics for the intended application is the goal of this process. This is why the characteristics of the supplied water and its intended use affect how the water is treated.

Due to a lack of drinking water and the expanding needs of the world’s population, water treatment is becoming more and more important. Only 2.5% of the planet’s total water reserves are freshwater, and only 0.4% of this is suitable for human consumption.


Desalination, often known as desalting, is a water treatment procedure that turns brackish or seawater into drinkable water for use in communities where it is most difficult to obtain fresh water.

There are other techniques for reducing the salinity of water, but Reverse Osmosis is the most comprehensive and sophisticated desalination system in use today, found in more than 60% of facilities globally.

General Industrial

In addition to being used for human consumption, water is an essential resource for all types of industrial processes and the creation of goods.

Our activity alters its natural state, contaminates it, and prevents it from being used for purposes like agriculture. This causes major environmental harm to rivers and seas. Because of this, we need to make sure that the water is properly treated so that it may be recycled and released back into the ecosystem.

Water pollution is removed from the wastewater by a number of physical, chemical, and biological processes so that people can use the water.

Municipal water

The five processes of the liquid filtration process for purifying municipal water are chemical addition, coagulation and flocculation, sedimentation and clarity, filtration, and disinfection. The filtration process is crucial for a variety of reasons, including allowing water providers to use less water and potentially less chemicals.

What we can benefit from water treatment?

There are many advantages of using water treatment systems, from which humans and our environment can both benefit.

Reusable and clean water

This makes it clear that wasting even wastewater harms the environment. Therefore, if there is any water that, despite treatment, cannot be used for consumption, it should be treated so that it won’t harm the environment. In addition, cleaning the wastewater at an industrial water treatment facility might yield clean water for reusing. If more filtration is needed, it can be made fit for human consumption.

Environmentally friendly

Chemical components are among the many waste items found in wastewater. It is potentially lethal to leave the industrial sector’s released water out in the open because it contains a dangerous chemical. In such a situation, the industrial water treatment facility will purge the water of any dangerous chemicals and compounds. In this manner, two things will occur. The water can first be used again for domestic or commercial purposes. Second, you may also contribute to reducing the environmental pollution.

Prevents disease

If the water isn’t clean, it ends up being the cause of a lot of illnesses. Similar to how poorly treated used water, wastewater, or blackwater causes disease-causing bacteria that harms trees, plants, and animals.
