Understanding the Types of Bottled Water

To address the increasing demand in the bottled water market, bottle water filtration systems must effectively eliminate contaminants while maintaining efficiency through advanced technologies. Different types of purified bottled water require distinct filtration processes and precision requirements. Before selecting an appropriate filtration method, it’s essential to comprehend the diverse categories of bottled water.

● Spring Water

Characteristics: Spring water, sourced from natural springs, is favored for its clear and natural qualities.

Filtration Requirements: The bottle water filtration process focuses on removing microorganisms, sediment, and other natural impurities to maintain water purity.

● Mineral Water

Characteristics: Rich in naturally occurring minerals, mineral water has a specific composition, often derived from springs, containing dissolved solids like calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, silica, and bicarbonate.

Filtration Requirements: The process targets microorganisms and sediments while ensuring the retention of natural minerals to preserve the original characteristics.

● Drinking Water

Characteristics: Obtained through artificial treatment, pure drinking water is typically derived by purifying tap water through a series of processes.

Filtration Requirements: Complete removal of impurities, chlorine, bacteria, etc., is necessary to provide colorless, odourless, pure water.

● Salt Water

Characteristics: Salz water, from a unique mineral spring, is rich in minerals, notably recognized for its high sodium chloride content.

Filtration Requirements: The process must remove microorganisms and sediments while preserving the distinctive minerals in the water.

When choosing a filtration process, producers must tailor filters and treatments for the specific bottled water type to meet desired quality standards. This personalized approach ensures diverse consumer needs are met across all bottled water varieties.

Bottled water filtration process

From groundwater to safe and pure drinking water, several crucial filtration steps are involved in the process. Often, we overlook the protective and packaging roles of filtration, which are essential for producing purified bottled water. Let’s delve into the specific steps of the bottled water filtration process.

● Protecting a Reverse Osmosis or Ion Exchange Unit (IEU)

This step is pivotal in the bottled water filtration process. Before treating surface or groundwater, the water undergoes treatment and softening using a filter to safeguard the reverse osmosis or ion exchange unit. This helps eliminate impurities and hardness from the water, ensuring the efficient operation of subsequent treatment steps.

● Pre-Filtration

Prior to entering the deionization system and bottling line, the water passes through a pre-filter to remove fine particles and suspended organics. This reduces the burden on subsequent treatment equipment and maintains water cleanliness.

● Final Filtration

As the last line of defense before bottling, final filtration targets biological contaminants. This involves removing microorganisms such as bacteria, cysts, and viruses to uphold hygiene standards in the final product.

● Tank Vent Filtration

During the bottling process, the gas storage tank vents need filtration. This ensures that sterile air can pass through during filling and venting, safeguarding the tank and its contents from contamination.

● Filtration at the Bottling and Packaging Stage

Bottle filters play a crucial role in the bottling and packaging stages, especially in the presence of CO2 or N2. They effectively eliminate airborne contaminants, ensuring that the final packaged bottled water remains pure at the factory.

By meticulously designing and implementing these steps, manufacturers can ensure the delivery of high-quality, safe, and pure bottled water products that meet consumer demand for healthy drinking water.
