A standard water packaging factory requires good water treatment system. Without it, that factory is not certified to package water in bottles and sachet for commercial distribution and consumption. A water treatment system is required because source water contains impurities that need to be removed.
Source Water (Raw Water)
Most water factories in Nigeria rely on groundwater from bore hole as source of water for their water packaging needs. This groundwater usually delivers into an overhead raw water tank through a submersible pump in the bore hole.
At this level, what we have is Raw Water. Although it looks as if it’s pure, it contains some measure of impurities. These impurities are treated and purified by the factory’s industrial water treatment system. Let us have a look at water treatment system entails and what exactly it does to produce potable drinking water.
Water Treatment System
A water factory’s treatment system will comprise of components which depends largely on the raw water quality. Water treatment improves the quality of water to make it more acceptable for drinking. So, the job of water treatment system is simply to take in impure raw water and produce pure water. Packaging machines use the pure water for production of either sachet or bottled water.
Ideally, a water system should be able to remove impurities (macro & micro), odour, taste, colour, and germs from your raw water. Therefore, the water treatment system possesses different parts well-suited for each of these purifying processes.
When shopping for a factory’s water treatment system, a good technician should present the source water quality test report so that proper understanding of impurities that need to be removed from the source water are ascertained. Also, your automation requirements and size specifications should be specified, so that the technical consultant or supplier can provide the appropriate detailed equipment to choose from (Parameters and filter media).
Here are parts of a water treatment system that most factories in Nigeria use:
- Reverse Osmosis
- Ozonator (Ozonizer)
- Quartz Sand Filter
- Activated Carbon Filter
- Water Softener
- Micro filters
- Ultra Violet Sterilizers
- Air UV Sterilizer
- Water pumps
The size and specifications of each of these parts depends on the factory’s production scale.
