Overview: This brackish water reverse osmosis plant was designed to reduce conductivity from well water for beverage production in Nicaragua.
Industry: Beverage Production
Water Concern: Water is a central ingredient in the food and beverage industry. Aside from being a part of the product, water is used for cleaning equipment and appliances to ensure cleanliness of the entire process. As a matter of fact, the quality of the product i.e. beverage or food is very much contingent on the quality of water provided. With water supplied from a well, conductivity and other harmful parameters are generally present and can hinder consistent quality of the beverage. Taste and consistency are both valuable measures that increase product operation and sales. Conductivity in particular directly effects the taste and quality of the product and therefore must be filtered to remove.
Applied Solution: This brackish water reverse osmosis plant was recommended to this beverage company to reduce conductivity from well water. The process begins with feeding the well water into a lime softening system to reduce the hardness of the water. Proceeding is a sand filtration system which will reduce the level of suspended solids. The water is then passed through a carbon filter which removes the taste, odor, and chlorine present. Next, a 5” micron cartridge filter is used to remove suspended solids prior to entering the RO system. Finally, the reverse osmosis system removes the remaining contaminants to supply purified water for beverage production.
This plant included a RO system model #TW-270K-8580 from our RO-500 Series.
