The W4000 and W 5000 Filter vessels were fabricated from mild steel plate throughout, and epoxy lined internally, and zinc chromate primed externally, and transported from South Africa to Malawi by road.
Loss of Head Measurement
Pressure gauges have been installed on each Pressure Filter to determine the head loss over the filter media.

Chemical Dosing
Two different types of chemicals dosing facilities have been provided for each location, consisting of Calcium Hypochlorite (HTH), for pre-filtration and post-filtration, and Aluminium Sulphate, for flocculation.

Backwashing Equipment
Water stored in elevated storage ranks is utilised for backwashing the Pressure Filters these storage tanks were filled by Booster pumps on the Mchinji and Rumphi sites.
