Disinfection by-products
Disinfection is an essential step in a water treatment process. Depending on the method and water quality, different by-products are generated which could affect the final water quality.
Disinfection
Disinfection is one of the most important processes in water treatment. This step eliminates microorganisms in drinking and process water to ensure safe water use according to relevant regulations and directives.
District heating
District heating describes a water-based heating system where there is a considerable distance between the place the heat is generated (power plant) and the place the heat is used (the building).
Dosing pumps
The dosing pump belongs to the positive displacement pump family and is typically a diaphragm pump.
Downtime costs / loss of production (Cs)
The measurable cost of a pump stoppage is modest seen over its lifetime in a commercial building.
Drinking water regulations
Disinfection is an essential step in any water treatment process. Most countries have specific guidelines or regulations, which describe the allowed methods and concentrations in the treated water.
Drip tray
A drip tray is used to collect condensation or defrosted water from cooling surfaces when air is cooled to below the dew point, etc.
Driving pump curve
The driving pump curve shows the total effect of the positive pump curve and the negative system characteristics.
Dry cooler
A dry cooler is an air-cooled device that is used in connection with removal of excess heat.
Dry installation
In a dry installation the pumps are not submerged in the pumped liquid, but installed next to the sump.
