With innovative simplicity built on our 15-years of experience engineering & manufacturing chemical feed, water recycling and waste treatment systems, Water Innovations Inc. designed state-of-the-art water purification or recycling, nutrient-feed, and waste treatment systems for land-based and hydroponic cultivation. Operating stand-alone or in combination, these systems are highly-automated with programmable logic control through a local touchscreen and mobile devices, while offering flexibility for various requirements. Skid-mounted except for the treatment tank, they deliver as complete kits including PVC interconnect pipe & waterproof cables to connect the skid & treatment tank. Requiring just 20 amps 120v-1Ø power, they can be quickly installed and ready to operate in hours by following our step-by-step how-to video.
For purification of potable or recycled feed water by removing to trace levels naturally- occurring organic & inorganic contaminants and added-nutrients phosphorous, nitrogen, & potassium. Designed for minimal waste, includes 50µ & 5µ filters for suspended solids; Macrolite™ filter for iron, manganese, arsenic & cysts followed by a softener for calcium & magnesium with Kinetico® CP control valves. Reverse osmosis further polishes product water to remove up to 97% of remaining TDS. The wastewater from filter & softener cleaning and also RO reject may require treatment to comply with local regulations. Feed water TSS & TDS and system flow are measured along with product water pH & TDS to ensure high quality.
With monitoring of feed water pH, TDS, & flow by the controller to execute recipes set at the touchscreen, it’s adaptable to any nutrient combination by modifying the number of chemical feeds. Instead of using a separate in-tank mixer, chemical feed pumps and a solution supply pump, a single pump controlled by an in-tank level sensor recirculates to mix the solution using in-tank eductors. Rather than using feed pumps, nutrients feed are controlled by an actuated-valve with a check-valve preventing back-flow, drawn into an in-line eductor and dispersed by a static mixer. After completion of nutrient dosing, the solution is pressurized by the pump to the crops with continual recirculation for ongoing mixing & nutrient dispersion within the solution.
As required by environmental regulations for surface run-off & discharges or to satisfy personal environmental stewardship, sources of Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) would be oxidized & metals concentrated by water purification/recycling would be removed. Controlled by an ORP sensor, bleach or peroxide is dosed in the same way nutrients are added into recirculating pressurized wastewater. Metals such as copper & zinc among others is to be removed by ion-exchange resin that shall be replaced as its capacity is reached, determined by sampling discharge water.
