Factors that determine the proper equipment for commercial applications include:
- Quality, long term trouble free operation
- Properties of water produced, consistent pH and -ORP
- Ease of use: Total automation (As with any equipment, periodic monitoring is recommended)
- Durability: Able to stand up to adverse conditions such as dust and high humidity
- Cost effectiveness: Initial capital cost, operating costs, replacement parts cost
- Warranty and Servicing: Backed by the manufacturer
- Ability for user to replace components: Electrodes and membrane easily changed out by user
Commercial usage, 1,000 - 4,000 liters per hour, Water bottlers, Dairy, Beef, Equine, Poultry, Swine
These units are extremely heavy duty when compared to units manufactured in Japan. These units are also much more cost effective in terms of electrode and membrane replacement, i.e. electrode / membrane replacement cost for Japanese assembled unit is over $4,000.00usd and have the same life expectancy.
Units must have prefiltration equipment installed to ensure longevity and trouble free operation. It is recommended that source water is tested to ensure there is not a problem with chemical contamination such as nitrates.
Total Hardness is the most common problem due to calcium and magnesium deposits that are naturally dissolved from the soil into water supplies. The Water Quality Association considers water to be "hard" when levels exceed one grain per gallon. To provide the public with a feel for the severity of the problem, the United States Geological Survey developed the following graphic showing Total Hardness levels throughout the US . The red areas on the map indicate levels from 181-250 ppm! pH and ORP may vary based on bottling source and materials used. We make no claims on final product in relation to pH or ORP.
* Results may vary due to uniqueness of the source water.
