deloach_degasifierHydrogen sulfide (H2S) contamination in water is a very common issue. A distinctive smell, combined with a dark precipitate that leaves behind damaging deposits, is an indication that there is H2S in your water. From the irritating smell, corroded plumbing & staining, to far more dangerous health concerns, contaminated water can cause serious issues in industrial and municipal environments.

When looking for the best method to remove the gas from your water treatment system, you want equipment that is highly efficient and cost effective. You also want the method to be safe and require minimum capital to initiate. Of all the available methods, few are as efficient, cost effective, and easy to implement as degasification.

Degasification

Generally speaking, degasification is the elimination of dissolved gases from water using various means. In this case, we are looking at the use of a membrane to filter off Hydrogen Sulfide from drinking water to render it clean and safe for use. In membrane degasification, a proprietary membrane cartridge is used to remove the gas from the water. With vacuum conditions on one side of the membrane and the contaminated water on the other side, the dissolved gas (H2S) is moved by the vacuum to the other side of the membrane, leaving the water molecules unable to move across. This happens very quickly and the method is highly effective. The resulting water is void of any contamination, and safe for drinking and commercial use. 

Why Degasification is Cost-Effective and Safe

  • Almost 99.5% of all gas is eliminated using this method. This means that the water is safe for commercial use.
  • Membrane degasification is cost efficient because of it’s longevity. There is also very low maintenance required, unlike the other water treatment methods of removing H2S.
  • Compared to the other available methods, degasification does not affect the rate of water flow or the pressure. This efficiency is important, especially in large commercial facilities and municipalities where the water demand is very high.
