Agriculture accounts for 80% of the fresh water consumption in the country. Given how expensive city water is, though, many growers opt to drill wells on their properties to cut down irrigation costs. This solution comes with a hitch, however: fresh well water contains too much chloride, which is abrasive and corrosive to water pipes, and can potentially stunt—or even kill—crops. Thankfully, AXEON Water Technologies offers a proven reverse osmosis water system that can rid well water of excess chloride.
Our AXEON M1-Series reverse osmosis water filter systems were specifically designed for commercial and light industrial applications. As the name implies, the system uses the principle of reverse osmosis to remove impurities and produce irrigation-ready water. In a nutshell, fluids with low solute (dissolved substances) pass through a membrane towards an area with high solute concentrations. Reverse osmosis flips this process on its head by applying pressure to feed water (the raw water source) so that it moves towards a low-solute area instead, leaving behind chlorides in the filtering membrane.
The commercial reverse osmosis systems from AXEON Water Technologies can produce 12,000 to 36,000 gallons of water per day—more than enough for all of your irrigation needs. These also come with a host of smart features that make their operation a cinch. For instance, they have programmable controllers that allow for hassle-free monitoring of parameters like total dissolved solids (TDS) and pressure levels, as well as the systems’ overall performance. Our systems also sport a multi-stage stainless steel booster pump which provides quiet and vibration-free operation.
Most importantly, the M1-Series offers key advantages compared to other water-filtering methods. In terms of efficacy, reverse osmosis is second to none, removing 90%-95% of all impurities. In contrast, electro-dialysis—another popular water-purification alternative—provides considerably less reliable purification, removing anywhere from 50%-95% of TDS.
Reverse osmosis delivers significant savings for growers. For example, the DI or de-ionizing resin method requires the resin to be “recharged” or “regenerated” regularly for optimal purification; as a result, the customer must continually pay for the removal of the resin and its transportation to vendor’s facility for regeneration. If you use a reverse osmosis system instead, you only need to replace the membrane, which is much less costly. Furthermore, the M1-Series consumes far less energy than other systems, allowing for even greater savings.
Our goal is to provide the best water-cleaning systems to our clients. If you want to know more about the applications of reverse osmosis to agriculture and our M1-Series, just call our toll-free number at 800-320-4074.
