Coliform Bacteria and Drinking Water
Public water systems must deliver safe and reliable drinking water to their customers 24 hours a
day, 365 days a year. If the water supply becomes contaminated, consumers can get seriously ill.
Fortunately, public water systems take many steps to make sure drinking water is safe. One of the
most important steps is regular testing for coliform bacteria.
Total Coliform Bacteria Testing
The total coliform bacteria test is a primary indicator of "potability" , suitability for consumption, of drinking water. It measures the concentration of total coliform bacteria associated with the possible presence of disease causing organisms.
Membrane Cleaning Procedure
Membranes lie at the heart of any Reverse Osmosis System, it is therefore essential that the membranes are maintained in a good clean condition and this should be considered to be an important part of any Reverse Osmosis maintenance program. Effective cleaning usually requires some knowledge of the type the cleaning options available.
The Role of Antiscalants and Cleaning Chemicals to Control Membrane Fouling
Membrane systems have been widely adopted in the industrialised and developing world as an efficient and cost-effective technology for the production of quality municipal and industrial grade water. Membrane process technology is also becoming more frequently selected for use in wastewater treatment applications. These cases often demand specialised control of membrane fouling.
