Designing a system can be tricky. With some much water technology equipment, it is difficult to be an expert in each. Engineers are expected to know everything including all the jargon. This will hopefully get you up to speed.
This section provides the very basics as well as some more in-depth design strategy.
The goal of this information is to allow engineers to quickly understand their various options. From what is a UV lamp to what dosage is required for Adenovirus. No assumptions.
Pictures, videos and other learning material are provided. The running time of each is meant to be short.
Design information is provided and organized based on orientations and on flow rates (some repetition). By reviewing the flow rate section, you will see the various options for your project. This will include redundancy and what the regulators require. We also include other need to know information like operation costs and service.
