Mineral Water Plant
Growing Mineral Water Filtration Plant / Bottled water business in Pakistan’s small industries category. Therefore, Mineral Water Plant Mineral Water Plant Proposed in Urban Cities: Karachi, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, and more. Ideal cities for Mineral Water Plant due to high population, water scarcity, and hygiene awareness. However, this business can also be undertaken in all small 2nd tier towns, in addition to suburban towns of large cities.
Scope of the Business:
Mineral water filtration plant Business thrives due to poor water quality in cities, towns, and rural areas. Additionally, High arsenic concentrations in underground water reported by WHO and Pakistan Quality Standards in cities/areas. THerefore, in urban areas, underground water lines often break, leading to contamination from sewerage water. Hence, access to pure drinking water is a necessity for all, irrespective of socioeconomic status or background.
Additionally, Target markets: Households, hotels, hospitals, offices, institutions, markets. However, bottled/Mineral Water preferred by upper, middle & lower middle class due to water unavailability.
Components of Mineral Water Plant
WATER ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGIES (WET) water filtration plant offers high-quality Mineral Water Plants, providing equipment, installation, and commissioning services. Moreover, we also guide clients on project feasibility, trademark registration, and food authority certification.
1 – Mineral Water Plant Feed Pump:
Therefore, the stainless steel imported feed pump draws water from the raw water tank and forces it into the Mineral Water Plant.
2 – Sand Filter:
The system includes an FRP vessel with multimedia layers of gravel, quartz, and silica sand. However, it effectively eliminates physical particles such as dust, rust, silt, and floating impurities up to a particle size of 20 microns.
3 – Activated Carbon Filter:
Moreover, FRP vessel with activated carbon media removes organic impurities like chlorine, pesticides, odors, and colors.
4 – Cartridge Assembly:
Moreover, the cartridge assembly has 5 and 1 micron filters to remove particles of up to 5 and 1 micron size for additional purification. Therefore, it includes polypropylene fiber (PPF) and polypropylene yarn (PPY) cartridges that block sediments in the water.
5 – Dosing Pump for Biocide:
Online dosing pump removes viruses and bacteria by adding antibacterial chemical to water. Additionally, it targets bacteria like Pseudomonas, Influenza, E.Coli, Coliforms, ensuring the water is bacteria-free.
6 – Dosing Pump for Anti-Scale:
An online dosing pump applies a specific amount of anti-scale chemical to prevent scaling of the RO membrane. Moreover, this extends the membrane’s lifespan and reduces maintenance expenses.
7 – Mineral Water Plant High Pressure Pump:
The high-pressure pump injects pretreated water into the Reverse Osmosis membrane, generating pressure in a Mineral Water Plant. Furthermore, this process, driven by pressure, exerts 150 to 200 psi pressure on the water to pass it through the RO membrane.
8 – Mineral Water Plant Membrane:
Therefore, RO Plant is a long-standing water purification technique used for decades to remove salts, ionic compositions, and dissolved solids. However, RO membrane eliminates salts, Lead, Mercury, Calcium, Iron, Asbestos, Cysts, Heavy Metals, reducing TDS below 20 ppm.
9 – Mineral Water Plant Membrane Housing:
Therefore, ASME-approved housing contains one inlet and two outlet points for raw water, permeate (purified water), and drain (waste water).
10 – Mineral Water Plant High Pressure Concentrate Valve:
High pressure concentrate valves serve as system pressure control valves in Mineral Water Plant. Therefore, globe valves use a movable disk plug to gradually open or close the water stream, enabling precise flow regulation.
11 – Mineral Dosing System:
Additionally, the RO membrane eliminates all salts and minerals from the water, after which these minerals are added back through a mineral dosing system. Moreover, Italian-made dosing pumps, specialized for this purpose, precisely dose minerals into the purified water to enhance its mineral content.
12 – Online TDS Meter:
To comprehend the TDS meter in a Mineral Water Plant, it is important to understand what TDS is. Additionally, total Dissolved Solids (TDS) refers to the combined amount of charged ions, salts, minerals, and metals present in the water. Furthermore, TDS is measured in milligrams per liter (mg/L) or parts per million (ppm).
13 – Online Flow Meters:
A Mineral Water Plant has two flow meters: one for measuring permeate flow (purified water output) and another for measuring waste water flow (water rejected from the membrane).
14 – Electric Control Panel:
The Mineral Water Plant Control Panel is to control the entire system’s working, Mineral Water Plant containing electrical components such as magnet connector, overload breaker, power relay, timer, LED, digital meters, on/off switch.
15 – Monitoring Panel:
The Mineral Water Plant Monitoring Panel is to monitor the performance parameters of Mineral Water Plant like flow rates, permeate TDS, line pressure of feed and product water. Monitoring Panel indicates live results of Mineral Water Plant performance.
16 – Storage Tank:
The final output of Mineral water filtration plant is being stored in mineral water storage tank.
17 – Ozone Generator:
Ozone Generator is a machine that produces the ozone gas and diffused it in to the purified water in storage tank. The benefit of ozone gas is that it increases the expiry of the water up to one year.
18 – Bottle Washing & Filling Station:
The last step of the system is to fill the mineral water in to the bottles, for that purpose a stainless steel washing and filling station has been used, with the option of washing and filling of 500ml, 1500ml, 6 Liters & 19 Liters.
By chemistry books all the water that exists on earth are mineral water because it contains natural minerals and salts.
Mineral Water: Purification and Enrichment Process
Popular meaning of Mineral Water: The water is called Mineral Water which is firstly treated on Reverse Osmosis system that removes all the content of water like physical, chemical & biological impurities, salts, minerals, heavy metals and etc from raw water and secondly addition of certain amount of minerals like calcium, magnesium & sodium to make water enrich with vitals minerals.
Setting up a Mineral Water Plant for bottling water business, the following checklist should be followed
1 – A covered area of minimum 220 – 270 square feet, for plant installation 150 – 170 Sq. ft. and 70 – 100 Square feet for storage of filled / empty bottles.
2 – Electricity connection (single/ three phase), water connection and a drain point in plant room.
3 – Storage tanks for raw & purified water 2000 liters capacity each.
4 – A Mineral Water Plant minimum of capacity 1000 liters per hour.
5 – Bottle Washing & Filling Station for washing, filling & capping of bottles.
6 – Stock of empty bottles 19 liters, 5 liters, 1500 ml & 500 ml.
