Suez zeeweed 1500 uf enables beverage company to use bore well water in process


In order to use bore well water at its facility, a beverage manufacturer located in Southern India needed to treat the source water for high levels of Coliform, E.Coli, and Pseudomonas. This required the plant to install an efficient water treatment solution that could effectively remove these bacteria from the water.


Based on the unique technical requirements and general business objectives, SUEZ proposed the ZeeWeed 1500 ultrafiltration membranes for producing UF permeate of 30 m3/hr.

The design of the plant included pre-treatment with existing Ca(OCl)2 dosing system for oxidation of iron & manganese, followed first by a pressurized UF and then a post-chlorination process with the existing Ca(OCl)2 dosing system for disinfection.
