Water Treatment EBook

Water treatment is any process that improves the quality of water to make it more acceptable for a specific end-use. The end use may be drinking, industrial water supply, irrigation, river flow maintenance, water recreation or many other uses, including being safely returned to the environment.


WasteWater Treatment Ebook

Sewage treatment is the process of removing contaminants from wastewater, primarily from household sewage. Physical, chemical, and biological processes are used to remove contaminants and produce treated wastewater (or treated effluent) that is safer for the environment.



Design, analyze or troubleshoot any pipe flow system. Consider liquid, gas, two-phase, slurry or non-Newtonian fluids from a single solution. Accelerate your design process with automatic equipment sizing technology to API & ISO standards.
