A representative office is active in Milan.
Making tap water distilled and usable in the medical field for the production of cosmetic and chemical products.
Offer innovative, proprietary and certified formulations for the sanitization, disinfection and sterilization of medical devices and environments at high risk of infection using high quality water.
Cerichem Biopharm Srl entrusted Cristal Water Group S.a.s. with the task of creating an efficient, energy-saving and low-cost water purification system that achieves all its goals.
Together with Aquaphor Professional, the solution chosen was the following:
- Sand filter
- Carbon filter
- Antiscalant with pump
- Osmosis unit Aquaphor Professional APRO-HP-2000-G
First stage filtration with granules consisting of an aluminous-silicate mineral with a high surface area that provides exceptional filtration of suspended solids down to 5 microns. The granules used incorporate tension, ion exchange, sedimentation and flocculation to produce crystal-clear water down to <0.1 NTU turbidity.
Second-stage filtration consists of a mixture of granular activated carbon of medium activity, produced from a sustainable raw material source. Its microporosity makes it particularly suitable for the removal of low molecular weight organic compounds and their chlorinated by-products such as chloroform and other trihalomethanes (THM). It is also ideal for removing oxidizing agents such as chlorine and ozone from process water.
The antiscalant, dosed with a metering pump, controls and inhibits the precipitation of salts such as calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate and magnesium hydroxide. The Aquaphor Professional osmosis unit APRO-HP-2000-G nominally provides 2000 litres per hour at a temperature of 25°C.
The RO system is designed to remove organic impurities and reduce the total salt content of water from municipal water (as in the present case) and local supply systems (from well, brackish or sea water) in accordance with requirements.
- Capacity: 2000 litres/h
- Process: RO
- RO recovery: up to 95% (in this case study, the operational recovery is 80%)
- Salt rejection rate: up to 98%
- High energy and water savings thanks to patented technologies
- Solid and fully automated
- Innovative pre-filtration system
- Low operating cost
- Long life service
