Raw Water Hardness
RAW water contains many impurities which are of concern in the food processing industry. Untreated water contains calcium and magnesium bicarbonates and carbonates, typically referred to as hardness. Also to be found are iron and aluminum salts, as well as sulfates, chlorides, and silicates. Raw water may also contain organic matter, microorganisms, and many other trace impurities. All of these are important to us in our role in the food processing industry.
