Water supplies can be naturally acidic, some as low as 4.5 pH. Most are around 6.0 – 6.8 pH. At these pH levels, the water is a natural solvent and will try to correct itself by absorbing minerals/metals from pipes, taps and tanks. A lot of the minerals/metals contained in the water are toxic to humans in larger doses (i.e. lead, zinc, copper and others) and can affect key processes in your production line.
The FILTEC range of commercial Akdolit Neutralisers use a natural mineral, Dolomite (heat treated to produce Akdolit) to raise the pH level of the water into the desired range. The low pH water takes up these minerals until it reaches a stable state.
The system connects into the main waterline and treats all incoming water. Units can be fitted with blending valves to control pH levels for specific sites or applications.
The range consists of simple up flow models through to advanced fully automatic controllers for all types of commercial application
If hardness is above 80gm/m3 CaCo3, consult with FILTEC or one of our Partners prior to installation
