UltraFiltration & Reverse Osmosis for Ultra Pure Irrigation Water

Problem Statement
In order to optimize the quality of their crops, our client controls the mineral profile of the water which is used to irrigate their plants. In this state-of-the-art approach, only minerals which are beneficial to the plants are added to the irrigation water in optimal quantities. This means that tap-water has to be demineralized before it is suitable for irrigation. As an alternative, they use surface water from a nearby river to supplement the water supply

Watericon provides various sizes of high efficiency, modular reverse osmosis systems  with pre-treatment, as well as a mixed bed ion exchange polishing step. The product water is sterile and demineralized and can now be made-up to the ideal irrigation quality. Our 1.5m3/h UF plant serves as ideal pre-treatment for river water as RO feed
