Why it is mandatory to undertake water treatment process?

Life and water are synonymous.  It is the essential element to survive and is used in multiple ways. Whatever be the purpose of using the water, be it domestic, commercial or industrial it is always important to ensure the quality of the water supplied. It must bear high standard and that is ensured by running the water through a number of water treatment processes.  The procedures are undertaken in a water treatment plant.

100% pure and clean water is nothing but a myth as it is almost impossible to achieve 100% purity in the water. As many times the water is cleansed or passed under different Mineral Water Processing Machinetreatment processes, it contains some elements that might or might not be harmful to our health. In course of time the number of harmful elements in contaminating the water is increasing and they have the ability to kill animals and even human beings. The most harmful elements happen to be the parasites, bacteria, virus, campylobacter, cryptosporidium, giardia, algae, fungus and so on.  It is also seen that the water tends to carry toxic metals like lead, copper and many others.  The water treatment process decreases the level of contamination in the water and makes it safer and cleaner for various usages.

The treatment procedures of water are undertaken not for providing clean and safe water for drinking but also for using it for industrial and commercial purposes.  There are also procedures to treat waste water before they are disposed off.  Thus the water goes back to the environment to be used again.

There are three stages involved in water treatment process and they are the primary, secondary and tertiary stage.  Each of the stages includes a number of minute procedures, which are undertaken with great care to assure that there are no visible elements dissolved in the water. Maximum care is taken for removing the impurities when the water is meant for domestic purposes. Even the finest elements are removed with in-depth attention.

An overview on the essentials to make a mineral water project successful

If it is about taking  charge of a mineral water project or about starting a mineral water plant on your own taking a mere distributorship then there are endless points one needs to

consider before plunging into the real time scenario.

The first and foremost questions to bug you are as follows,

• What is the Profit Margin?

• How much is the investment?

• How much is the ROI (Return on Investment)?

• What are the Risk Factors?

• How to minimize the Risk Factors?

Now, in order to come to a conclusion about the profit margin, one needs to think over the mode, bottle, jar, pouch or just all of them? In case you are trying to have your o

wn brand

promoted then it is a must to decide on the product mix. In case, you will just undertake a distributorship the choice is rather limited.

Whatever it is, your decision is going to get influenced by the following elements,

• Investment

• Space

• Profit Margin

• Power

Investment: The amount of investment truly depends on the type and capacity of the mineral water project and plant. Thus, it comes down to square one to the concept of the product

mix of bottles, jars and pouches. It can be a mix of all three or just a jar or a pouch plant. The standard module of all the plants bears a capacity of 2000 LPH. After the type of the plant

is de4cided then the next point to concentrate on will be the choices of machinery and equipment. The other expenditure will include,

• Utility expenses such as, Water Electricity Air Conditioning, air Compressor etc.

• Liaison Expenses such as, ISI License & other Government License expenditure.

• Consultancy Charges towards ISI Consultancy project funding etc.

• Building Cost covering Construction and the interior cost.

ROI: If the plant is run professionally then the mineral water plant will start generating returns within 3 years.

Risks: The risk factors include,

• Absence of parallel execution system

• Absence of Coordination

• Absence of documentation

• Failure in execution

You must ensure that you the plant maintain the hygienic parameter as asked by the government. Any kind of food processing or selling business needs that you must maintain a clean as well as hygienic storage space. A bakery and confectionary business is also not an exception.

How does water treatment plant purify waste water?

Who does not know the how much importance water has in our life? Water, the other name of life, is found in plenty in the world. But only few per cent of the water is suitable for drinking. In fact, today there is a scarcity of drinking water. To purify water and suitable for drinking, water treatment plant is very much necessary.

Used water which comes out of industries can be purified and again made it fit for drinking. Water treatment plants make it possible.

Some of the facts about the water treatment plant are as follows:

1. Water treatmentis about the removal of the undesirable materials, chemicals as well as the other contaminants which make the water unhygienic.

2. The very first step is pumping the waste waMineral Water Plantter in the water treatment plants. As far as the physical infrastructure is concerned they should be made of the appropriate material. Otherwise the plant will not be able to store the water and there will be leakage.

3. The next step includes screening. Debris such as trash, leaves, stones and sticks are removed from the water.

4. After screening comes the step of pre-conditioning and pre-chlorination. In the pre-chlorination process chlorine, which is known for its purifying property, is added to the water. However, one of the main problems of adding chlorine is that the taste of the water becomes really bad.

5. After all these processes are followed, pH adjustment of the water is done. The water is also filtered here.

After following the above steps, the water is finally purified and made suitable for drinking.

How Chocolates Are Produced- From Plants to Chocolate Factories

Regardless of our age, we all love chocolate. It is the key ingredient for various food items like candy bars, milkshakes, cookies and many more. Despite its huge popularity, most of us are oblivious of the procedure of making these treats. The basic procedure of harvesting coca, refining it to cocoa and transportation to the candy and chocolate plant is followed by several other mechanised processes.
The following are the procedure of chocolate making:
1. Harvesting Cocoa and Cocoa processing
It starts with harvesting the coca from the evergreen cocoa tree. It is harvested manually and is a labour intensive work.
Step 1: plucking and opening the coca pods- the cocoa beans sprout of the tree and are normally a size of a football.
Step 2: fermenting the seeds- they are placed in large, heated and shallowUntitled trays usually covered with banana leaves. The beans turn brown during this process.
Step 3: drying the cocoa seeds- it takes around a week to dry when the seeds become half of their actual weight.
2. Manufacturing processes at the candy and chocolate plant
The fermented and dried cocoa beans are refined to a roasted nib by roasting and winnowing. Then they are heated into chocolate liquor. Lastly sugar and milk are added to produce the flavour.
Step 1: roasting and winnowing- they are firstly roasted and then broken into smaller pieces which are called cocoa nibs. They straining and passing through the series of sieves is known as winnowing.
Step 2: grinding the nibs- this process produces the cocoa liquor. It is the also known as the cocoa mass.
Step 3: blending cocoa liquor and moulding chocolate- the cocoa mass or powder is then blended with butter and liquor of various kinds at varying proportions to produce the different kinds of chocolates.
Milk chocolates, white chocolates and plain dark chocolates are the basic flavours available. They are further enhanced by adding dry fruits and various other flavours. The candy and chocolate plants then package and deliver these delicacies to the distributors to reach the stores to be sold to the customers.
