Difference Between Mineral And Packaged Drinking Water

The key differences between mineral and packaged drinking water should be carefully understood.

Natural Mineral Water

Natural mineral water was already rich with vital mineral components. This water is taken from sources of natural water, and this water already contains essential minerals. Natural water sources such as fountains, waterfalls and rivers are filled with unique minerals and salts from the particular region’s stones and soil. This water has a good taste and is good for health but is not always suitable for human consumption in its raw form.

Process of Natural Water Drinking Plant

  • RAW WATER PUMP – Its purpose is to boost raw water to the sand filter. It comes with a flow of 20000 LPH, op, and pressure of 2.5-3.5Kg/cm2.
  • SAND MEDIA FILTER – It’s a vertical pressure vessel to remove> 50-micron dusts & other suspended particles. It requires a backwash every day when you start the machine.
  • CARBON MEDIA FILTER – It removes colour, odour, chlorine particles and organic impurities. It requires backwash every day when you start the machine, types of media used are Sand, Pebbles, and Gravel. It has a flow of 20000 LPH, op, and pressure of 2.5-3.5Kg/cm2.
  • MICRON CARTRIDGE FILTER – It removes>5micron suspended particles. Size of 20″ x 4″, with a filter type of Spun/string wound and a flow of 20000 LPH.
  • STORAGE TANK – Its function is to store water upto 5000ltr
  • ULTRA VIOLET SYSTEM – It helps deactivate the strength of the bacteria.
  • OZONATOR SYSTEM- Its function is to increase the shelf life of water by adding ozone.
  • OZONE CIRCULATING PUMP- To circulate ozone water.
  • CONTROL PUMP- To monitor pressure at every stage.

 

Packaged Drinking Water

Packaged drinking water is regular water taken from a fresh and pure source which is cleansed and filtered through a production procedure. It is then packed and made suitable for human consumption. It depends on the bottling brand to add minerals into this water.

  • RAW WATER PUMP – Its purpose is to boost raw water to the sand filter. It comes with a flow of 20000 LPH and op. the pressure of 2.5-3.5Kg/cm2
  • SAND MEDIA FILTER – It’s a Vertical pressure vessel type to remove> 50-micron dusts & other suspended particles. It requires a backwash every day when you start the machine.
  • MEDIA FILTER – It removes colour, odour, chlorine particles and organic impurities. It requires backwash every day when you start the machine, types of media used are Sand, Pebbles, and Gravel.
  • MICRON CARTRIDGE FILTER – It removes>5micron suspended particles.
  • ANTISCALANT DOSING PUMP- Scaling resistance for membrane and increasing membrane life.
  • HIGH-PRESSURE PUMP – It is used to lift Profiteered water towards RO Module and is of Vertical multistage centrifugal type.
  • R/O SKID- To support the R/O module.
  • R/O MODULE- Function to remove physical & chemical impurities in terms of total dissolved solids up to 90 to 95%.  

Item membrane housing with membrane mounted on the skid. This film is a composite of a spiral wound.

  • OZONATOR SYSTEM- Its function is to increase the shelf life of water by adding ozone.
  • OZONE CIRCULATING PUMP- To circulate ozone water.
  • CONTROL PUMP- To monitor pressure at every stage.

 

The taste experienced with mineral water differs considerably from packaged drinking water. The rich mineral content makes mineral water taste almost the same as fresh, natural water. Additionally, the taste of packaged drinking water may vary based on the source quality, usage of a specific treatment method and content of natural minerals. Packaged drinking water is filtered chemically and treated, mostly done through chlorination. The packaged drinking water goes through various procedures to eliminate all water-based contaminants.

CONCLUSION

Having an insight into the different processes of natural and packaged water drinking plants, it is noteworthy that apart from the R/O module, the entire process is identical. The packaged drinking water goes through various procedures to eliminate all water-based contaminants. The costs for packaged water are also higher than mineral water in the case of RO plants. We at Dharmanandan Technology PVT. LTD a leading mineral water plant and bottling plant manufacturer can give you the best solutions for both sources of water.
