containerised water treatment plant

Refinar East Africa is a leading manufacturer of any type of water treatment plant in a containerized version.

We design ready-to-use desalination plants that can produce up to 1000 m3/day from different sources of water; rivers, boreholes, streams, well, or even pretreated sources.

The system comes all in one inbuilt. Pipping connected between equipment pumps, vessels, skids, tanks, cabling, and wiring of pumps and instrumentation inside the container to a main control panel.

We can deliver our units in 20 or 40 ft containers depending on the size of the plant.

The equipment comes with fluorescent bulbs, an inlet valve for raw water, and an outlet for wastewater.

Depending on the customer’s needs, we can customize the container to include a roof, a refrigeration unit, or additional doors or ventilation. The container can be air-cooled or insulated on request.

Each plant is presented fully in 3D prior to construction.

The design of the water treatment plant is always custom-made and is subject to modification depending on the water quality.

A water analysis is required to determine the pre-treatment required and processes.

Our Containerized Water Treatment Plants provide and ensure perfectly clean drinking water for permanent as well as the emergency assurance of drinking water according to the strictest hygiene standards. These containerized units are flexible, safe, and portable and can be used in a variety of situations. Imagine the relief in a rural area where people are deprived of safe drinking water.

These units can be put anywhere, even next to a river or dam, and purify and clean the water quickly and effectively providing clean water to thousands of people.

These water units are fully assembled within shipping containers. All containerised water treatment systems are designed and created based on the client’s specific needs. The biggest considerations when designing and creating the containerized unit are that they should be compact, easy to operate, portable and to be as environmentally friendly as possible. All requirements are taken into consideration to create the best possible solution to the problem at hand.

Containerized Water Treatment Plants

The completed containerized treatment units are tested prior to delivery, ensuring a fully functional unit will arrive on site, and essentially becomes a ‘plug and play’ type installation thus reducing site installation time.

Containerized water treatment plants are the best solutions to treat water in rural areas, schools, mining sites, industrial applications, and new development sites.

The containerised water treatment plant is secure and a compact purification plant that can be relocated in need be.

The containerized water purification plant can be used for different sources of water including surface water, brackish borehole water, river water, and even seawater.

Factors we take into consideration when designing the equipment include; the plant should be compact, easy to operate, portable, and as environmentally friendly as possible.

The client is required to provide or cater for a lab analysis of the water to be used while we take all requirements into consideration to create the best possible solution to the problem at hand.
