Surface Water Treatment
Governments around the world recognize the importance of safe drinking water – including water supplied by municipalities, housing developments, parks, rest stops, industry, and more. And when it comes to addressing this critical need, the road leads to Pall Corporation!
Regulations such as the Safe Drinking Water Act in the US mandate that drinking water that comes from a surface source like a river, lake, or uncovered reservoir be treated to remove or neutralize pathogens that are resistant to chlorine, the most commonly used disinfectant. In the US, this is known as the Surface Water Treatment Rule (SWTR), and it specifically cites that parasitic cysts Giardia and Cryptosporidium be addressed.
Pall Aria Water Treatment systems with 0.1 micron hollow fiber Microza* microfiltration modules are designed to comply with these stringent regulations. The fine filters contain a mean pore size that is 1/20th the size of the smallest Cryptosporidium Oocyst. The state-of-the-art technology of Pall Aria systems offer the following results:
- Reliable performance
- Cyst Removal
- Certified by ETV
- Many other state certifications including California DHS
- Cyst Removal
- Low cost
- Operator attention
- Consumable usage
- High ratio of water produced/water wasted

There are many technologies currently in use to comply with federal and state regulations for surface water treatment. Pall Aria microfiltration membrane systems can be applied in a number of ways as a stand-alone option for surface water treatment rule compliance or in conjunction with other conventional and new technologies as part of an integrated treatment train.
