Site Pilot Trials
B+W's Environmental Testing Unit (ETU) is a self-contained mobile
testing facility designed to assist in the selection of appropriate
treatment regimes for a diverse range of water and wastewater
applications. All equipment is mounted within a 10ft x 6ft road trailer
to provide an easily transportable and convenient test facility. This
multipurpose unit consists of aeration, multi-media filtration, pH
control, softener, reverse osmosis and ultra-violet disinfection. Flow
rate through the ETU plant can be controlled between 100-400 litres per
This pilot facility has been cleverly designed to be flexible and can
be used for many applications including borehole water, wastewater
treatment and recovery, rainwater harvesting and treatment of surface
The ETU has the capability to perform a number of treatment processes including:
- Reduction in turbidity and suspended solids.
- Removal of iron and manganese.
- Removal of ammonia and barium.
- Water softening.
- pH correction.
- Removal of colour and organics.
- Reduction in conductivity and total dissolved solids.
Information obtained from the ETU pilot trials allows us to offer
proven and guaranteed solutions for unique treatment requirements.
