Desalination of sea water.

Water Tratment

December 14, 2020

Did you know that 70% of the little fresh water that we have to consume irrigation. 20% takes industrial processes and only 10% is applied to domestic consumption.

Water is essential in food production. Its use in agriculture represents the largest volume of consumption globally.

¿Could much of the solution lie in the oceans, which contain 97% of the planet's water?

It is represented by alternate waters or renewable waters, such as brackish and marine waters.

Currently agriculture is not growing in many regions problems of shortage of fresh water. 

The salinity of the water is a major problem for agriculture, it contains high concentrations of sales, which crops may not tolerate.

If the water treatments are not adequate for use in agricultural irrigation, major agronomic problems can occur that affect crop productivity.

The solution to combat the shortage of fresh water is the treatment of saline water sources through the desalination process.

¿What is desalination?

Physical-chemical process that consists of eliminating salt from sea or brackish water, to transform it into fresh water.

Used by a reverse osmosis system that consists of the sea water being forced to cross a membrane to leave the salt molecules behind, separating them from the water.

Membranes are recognized as leaders in reverse osmosis, responsible for separating salts from water.

All problems related to the application of the use of desalinated seawater to agricultural irrigation can be solved through a correct regulation of this type of supply.

The quality of irrigation water is essential for the successful production of tall crops and thus achieving high yields.


Filtration of water for the production of food and beverages.

Water Filters

December 14, 2020

¿Why are filters necessary in the preparation of food and beverages?

Filtration in food and beverage processing plays a very important role in providing a safe and economical method of removing impurities from water and thus extending the life of many consumable products.

Water is the most important component in the production of food and drink products.

High standards of cleanliness and strict control over water contamination are of utmost importance to ensure its preparation.

In the food industry, extreme care must be taken of the quality of the water that is going to be used during the food production process and especially that water that is going to come into direct contact or is going to be part.

Water that does not have the appropriate characteristics from a chemical and microbiological point of view can have serious consequences.

The quality that must be used in the elaboration of them must be a determining factor to maintain their conservation and safety.

 ¿What is it for?

Filtration largely serves as a process that minimizes contamination of a product by removing impurities and protects the taste and quality of the food or beverage.

Water filtration is the process of removing unwanted chemicals, biological contaminants, and suspended solids from contaminated water.


Negative effects of water hardness.

Water Tratment

December 14, 2020

¿What is hard water?

It is known as hard water that contains a high level of dissolved minerals calcium and magnesium. And with it the problems it carries.

¿Do you know what consequences it could cause?

It is important to know that hard water causes various problems.

Having hard water can have a major influence on the performance and maintenance of cleaning appliances, as well as the taste of the water.

The negative effects of hard water exist:

  • Hard water can cause significant pressure losses in the water due to calcium scale by reducing the diameter of the pipe.
  • Hot water appliances (boiler, electric water heater, heater) and household appliances (washing machine, dishwasher) are damaged, and can cause breakdowns if we have water with a high calcium content.
  • Water with excess calcium is not as effective when used with cleaning and hygiene products.
  • It wreaks havoc on people's skin. May cause dryness and irritability. Dries out hair and skin. It also clogs the pores of the skin. However, the worst is when eczema or dermatitis occurs.
  • Water appliances that have hard water can consume up to 60% more heat energy, and their efficiency can be reduced by 12%, even generating high costs. If you want to save energy, you will have to solve the problems of hard water.

¿Are you looking for a solution?

Despite this, there is a great solution for this type of operation aimed at eliminating the hardness of the water, called a softener.

The softener offers a complete solution to prevent scale formation caused by these minerals produced by high-grade calcium and magnesium carbonates that are dissolved in water.

The process of softening the water consists of removing some minerals that are found in small proportions in the water that can affect certain activities and be harmful if consumed in high levels.

¿How effective is ozone to disinfect?

Water Tratment

December 21, 2020

¿What is ozone?

It is a powerful oxidant that gives them disinfectant properties against microorganisms as long as they are used in the necessary doses for the necessary time.

¿Is it totally safe to use it?

Claro is completely safe and its use is regulated by its corresponding standard, being its usual application in the purification of water.

Its main advantages are that it does not leave chemical residues and does not impart particular aromas or odors to the final product, as occurs with other disinfectants.

¿How do you disinfect?

Because, by sharing electrons between three atoms, the resulting molecule tends to capture electrons from any compound that comes close to it, which makes it a strong oxidant. Thus, by capturing electrons from other molecules, it oxidizes them until they are destroyed, as long as the ozone concentration and the contact time are sufficient.

¿How effective is it as a disinfectant?

Ozone is highly effective in disinfection against viruses, bacteria, fungi and protozoa, as well as properties that allow the elimination of bad odors and chemical contamination. This is due to its great oxidizing power.

Why´s the use of antiscalant in membranes important?

Water Tratment

April 7, 2021

The evolution of standardized parameters indicates that antiscalant is effective in inhibiting scale formation and preventing fouling by colloidal material in reverse osmosis membranes. 

Scaling refers to the deposition of particles on a membrane that cause it to become clogged. The blocked surface due to fouling causes a decrease in permeate flux, reducing process efficiency and increasing operating costs.

After an induction period, the plant flow rate decreases rapidly. The duration of this period varies according to the type of scale and the degree of supersaturation of the light soluble salt.

The use of AWC antiscalant can eliminate the need for acid dosing, allow plants to operate at higher recoveries and reduce the frequency of cleanouts. 

AWC has developed highly effective inhibitors that are unmatched in the industry for controlling the most challenging fouling.

April 22, 2022

Water treatment in agriculture. 

The water that is applied through different irrigation systems for the correct development of crops can be very diverse, since it can come from rivers, lakes or continuous streams of natural water, wells, etc. 

The main elements that make up irrigation water are the cations calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium and the anions carbonates, bicarbonates, chlorides, sulfates, nitrates and borates, on which the quality of irrigation water depends. 

To know the content of nutrients and dissolved salts present in the irrigation water, it is convenient to perform a laboratory water analysis, since knowing the information provided by the irrigation water analysis, we can establish different strategies to have the best possible water quality. 

The presence of these dissolved salts in the irrigation water can cause an increase in the salinity of the soil and this makes the plants unable to absorb the water correctly. 

In order to obtain pure water, it is necessary to carry out different processes to create drinking water that is ideal for agriculture. All this in order to avoid problems of salinity or infiltration of water into the soil when certain levels of sodium content in the soil are exceeded in relation to those of calcium and magnesium, toxicity problems for plants or others derived from clogging in localized irrigation systems.
