In this post, I want to share you how to calculate water treatment plant capacity. I used this term to avoid misunderstanding.
- Raw water is untreated water coming from water source, such as from wellwater, river, or seawater
- Utility water is raw water which has been treated and used in plant, such as for personal hygiene (flushing), utility station, cooling tower make up
- Potable water is sufficiently high quality water which is provided for drinking, cooking, laundry, and safety shower/eye wash
- Demineralized water is treated water which is usually used as chemical dilution of MDEA or boiler feed water
Water treatment plant capacity calculation begins with demin water demand, potable water demand, utility water demand, and the last is raw water demand. (more…)
