comparing mineral water station and purified water station

Updated on November 29, 2012

More often than not,many of our clients asks difference between mineral water station from purified water station. Lets then look at the diagram shown in the images to see the difference in terms of the processes raw water goes through until it finally is filled into containers and then sealed for selling and or consumption.

METHOD OF TREATMENT IN MINERAL WATER:

MULTIMEDIA FILTRATION

The deep well water is initially filtered by the multimedia filtration to remove sediments, organics and suspended matter down to 10 microns size.

ACTIVATED CARBON FILTRATION

The water is then treated with the activated carbon filtration to remove chlorine and some organic content from water.

SEDIMENT CARTRIDGES

A cartridge filter will be installed to remove traces of MMF, ACF and WS. This is consists of 10, 5, and 1 micron rating a poly sediment filter cartridge 20 inches slim.

ULTRA VIOLET LIGHTS

The purified water is then passed through these 6 gallons per minute process to remove microorganisms.using UV lights requires complete pre filtration method, without this pre filtration, uv lights does not work properly or not at all efficient. It is highly effective in removing bacteria, protozoa and viruses. It can not remove toxic chemicals present in the water. The big blow is that, some of this microorganisms can be hidden on bigger solutes that had not been filtrated < remember that your filters will only filter down to one micron sized particles and most microorganisms are lesser than one micron> making them barred from the UV rays and succesfully pass the filtration method and flows out of the system down to to your drinking bottle.

The four process involved in mineral water production mentioned above are then the basic features applied found in a rightfully installed water stations.

Let us then compare what makes it different fom a purified water station by reading the following processes involved:

METHOD OF TREATMENT IN PURIFIED WATER:

MULTIMEDIA FILTRATION

The deep well water is initially filtered by the multimedia filtration to remove sediments, organics and suspended matter down to 10 microns size.

ACTIVATED CARBON FILTRATION

The water is then treated with the activated carbon filtration to remove chlorine and some organic content from water.

WATER SOFTENING

The filtered water will be treated by the softening process to reduce the magnesium and calcium hardness present in the water.

PRE-RO SEDIMENT CARTRIDGE

A cartridge filter will be installed before the RO system to remove traces of MMF, ACF and WS. This is consists of 10, 5, and 1 micron rating a poly sediment filter cartridge 20 inches slim.

REVERSE OSMOSIS

RO technology involves using a high pressure pump to force apportion of the feed water through a semi-permeable membrane. The amount of permeate product water varies directly with the feed water pressure and temperature. Apportions of feed water is directed to drain wastewater (or for household cleaning necessities).

reverse osmosis filter has a pore size of approximately 0.0001 micron. It is highly reputable for removing viruses,bacteria, protozoans and toxic chemicals.


ULTRA VIOLET LIGHTS

The purified water is then passed through these 6 gallons per minute process to ensure further that there are no microorganisms left so that water quality is ensured to be `100% free of radicals after the 24 stages it had passed through.

In summary therefore, a mineral water stations mainly uses fitration process down to one micron size total dissolved solutes with gradual removal of viruses,bacteria and protozoans,and does not remove toxic chemicals. On the other hand, purified water stations employs the same filtration and sterilization method like that of a mineral water, but could then remove particles in the water to as small as 0.0001 micron and perfect disposal of bacteria, viruses, protozoans and chemical contaminants.

      Great comparison of the warter filtration methods. Good to know.
