Treating borehole water at an artisan distillery
Borehole Water Treatment for an Artisan Distillery
An Artisan Distillery, predominantly producing gin, approached J&F to enquire what water treatment processes may be required in order to use borehole water in their production process.
J&F together with a recommended installer worked closely with the master distiller to provide a solution that would remove high nitrates, sulphates and chlorides and give water of consistent quality.
The water analysis also showed a very small quantity of coliforms whilst visually there was also a slight colour issue.
J&F specified and supplied the following equipment:
1 x 5 micron sediment filter and filter housing
1 x Luminor Blackcomb 5 Ultra Violet disinfection system
1x duplex softener using Clack WS1 control valves
1 x carbon backwashing unit with Clack WS1 control valve for colour removal
1 x MO6000, 6 m3 per day RO unit
