A regular programme of potable water testing on-board ships and other marine vessels is an essential management process required to maintain safe drinking water supplies for crew members, passengers and others. In this expert guide the water safety experts at Water Treatment Services consider the health risks that need to be considered by ship owners and officers and how these can be properly managed. We review the main regulations and international guidance on fresh water quality, and conclude with a summary of recommendations for the testing of drinking water quality in marine environments.
In this expert guide the Mogden Formula, used by UK water companies to calculate trade effluent charges comes under review from the industrial wastewater specialists at Water Treatment Services. The guide looks at its history and how it is used to calculate the costs for discharging effluent. It also considers how the formula can be used to identify opportunities for environmental improvement and cost reduction for businesses.
In this expert guide the industrial wastewater specialists at Water Treatment Services take a detailed look at issues associated with the treatment of trade effluent and management of liquid waste in commercial, industrial and process environments.
This technical guidance examines the top 10 causes of industrial plant and equipment failure. It looks at issues such as corrosion, external loading, physical impact, pressure, temperature, vibration, the effects of poor maintenance and defective equipment, human error and other issues and how they impact the safety and performance of plant and equipment used in industrial and process environments.

Our expert guide to treating industrial effluent, often referred to as trade effluent, examines the use and selection of speciality wastewater treatment chemicals including coagulants and flocculants and how they work. It reviews common treatment techniques including clarification, dissolved air flotation (DAF), filtration and biological treatments. It also considers techniques used for sludge dewatering and concludes with a guide to selecting the best treatment products for various wastewater streams.
Most industrial and manufacturing processes, whatever the industry sector, tend to use good quality or even purified water in one or more of their stages. Despite it being such a commonly used resource, there are a lot of misconceptions about how we reuse water which could have a major impact on how effective our processes are, both from a cost and environmental perspective. Read on to find out about the most common misconceptions surrounding the use and reuse of water in manufacturing processes, and what we can do about them.
Is testing water for lead a good idea? Well… whilst in the UK we are lucky enough to have a safe supply of drinking water people still worry about all sorts of contaminants getting into their water supply. One of those contaminants is lead, and it can cause very real health issues in humans if it’s not detected and dealt with properly.
This short article is about the treatment of wastewater. Wastewater treatment describes the process used to convert wastewater or sewage, water that has been used in some form of process and has become contaminated making it unsuitable for further use, or water that is no longer required into an effluent that can be either returned safely to the water cycle with minimal environmental issues or reused for either industrial or domestic consumption.
