Water treatment reference book

Water treatment reference book

Water treatment reference book

I am looking for water treatment reference book/brochure. The book is an useful reference used by water professional that contains tables and concise date on the hydraulics, water quality, solubility, etc. It should be of small format A8 and has ~ 150-300 pages. This sort of Handbook is usually issued by water treatment companies.

Thanks in advance.

RE: Water treatment reference book

Dear Adavidi ,

I have used The Degremont(a French company),maroon handbook,when I was working on water tretment design.

Ofcourse,you can contact Nalco too

The American Water Works Association (AWWA),is another good source..

Good Luck,


RE: Water treatment reference book

Dear adavidi,

There are so much water treatment handbook for you to read and find.

For such of that data, you would find it in:
1.  Kurita, hand book of water.
2.  Nalco, handbook of water.
3.  AWWA, handbook of water.
4.  Betz, hand book of water.

Those all is the water handbook from the people who know the treatment of the water for industria processes, especially in demineralized water, cooling water, boiler feed water and satitary water.

For solubility, you would find it also in:
1.  Perry's; Chemical Engineering Hand book.
2.  Handbook of Thermodynamics Properties.
3.  Lange's; handbook of Chemical Engineering.

I suggest you to read first in Perry's Chemical Engineering handbook from 3rd edition to 7th edition.  The data there is so complete, otherwise you would find the data from Handook of Thermodynamics Properties.  I hope you would find those books easily.

RE: Water treatment reference book

Dear Adavidi,

I suggest you look at Water treatment Handbook from Osmonics. It is complete with sections such as identifying impurities, methods of water purification, examples of high ourity system, appendices and glossary. It is a consice 145 page comprehensive handbook.

Alternatively you could try this weblink

Also try the US filter catalogue. It may prove very handy
