Know your water treatment options

Virtually all water treatment systems for food service applications utilise one or more of five basic water treatment technologies. The challenge is to choose the right technologies to deal with particular contaminants in order to create a desired result.

Water Treatment TechnologyHow It WorksWater Treatment Performance
Mechanical FiltrationSuspended particulates are trapped by the media.Removes dirt & sediment.
Activated CarbonReduces organics, chlorine and other chemicals by adsorption.Reduces taste & odour.
Scale InhibitorInhibitor media releases into the water and interferes with hardness minerals to reduce the potential for scale formation.Inhibits scale formation.
Ion Exchange (Softening)Water flows through charged resin where mineral ions are exchanged, e.g. calcium & magnesium are exchanged for sodium.Removes hardness minerals.
Ultra Z FiltrationUltra Z Filtration is a type of membrane filtration in which hydrostatic pressure forces water against a semi-permeable membrane.0.01 micron filtration, protects against cysts and bacteria such as E-coli.

Select the system for your application.

Puretec offers a choice of system styles to meet any need.

Additional important information listed for each system to help you with your selection includes:

  • Capacity (Litres)
  • Flow Rate (Lpm)

Confirm your choice of systems by answering two final questions:

  1. Are the right technologies applied for each application?
  2. Will the system capacity meet or exceed the actual water usage for the period between filter changes?
