Breweries

In beer breweries Structured Water can offer the following benefits:

  • Boiling time reduction in wort mashing process resulting in higher efficiency of enzymes and hops.
  • Prevents limescale build-up in heat exchangers used in wort heat recovery after clarification process.
  • Improves the fermentation process making it more efficient, resulting in higher alcohol content in beer. The yeast life cycle is augmented, thus reducing strain addition.
  • Structured Water increases the efficiency of bottle washing by minimizing water consumption, cleaning products, water temperature and wastewater, achieving significant energy savings. 
  • The same advantages for wort fermentation apply to other industries like wine and spirituous beverages.

Hospitality

  • Using Structured Water when boiling vegetables, grains, berries, pulses, and pre-cooked foods, it can achieve energy savings between 5% and 9%, getting the same quality with less exposure time to the heat source.
  • Boiled food has a better taste.
  • Structured Water improves fermentation processes.
  • Structured Water increases the efficiency of dishwashing by minimizing water consumption, cleaning products, water temperature, and wastewater, therefore achieving substantial water and energy savings.
  • Adding Structured Water to sauces (especially hot sauces and sauces with high garlic content) delays oxidation preventing them from turning black (antioxidant effect), which also applies to all other preserves.

Food Industry

Nearly any process in the food industry can get improved with Structured Water.

  • Steam production is a regular feature in the food industry usually through low-pressure boilers (between 14 and 19 Kg/m2). Structured Water can be used as sole external water treatment and conditioning when the water hardness is below 350 mg/l of calcium carbonate, replacing the ion exchange devices (salt softeners). If water hardness is higher, the ion exchange unit is still necessary, but Structured Water can prevent corrosion even in high-pressure boilers.
  • Washing fruits and vegetables with Structured Water before it is processed improves conservation, optimises the milling process and seed separation and improves taste.
  • Structured Water is also used in autoclaves to avoid corrosion and improve the quality of condensed water that returns to boilers.
  • The Structured Water´s detergent effect can bring great benefits in general cleaning of equipment, conveyors, floors and industrial areas, improving the effect of detergents and cleaning agents and neutralising unpleasant odours.

Swimming Pools and Spas


 

Using Structured Water in indoor and outdoor pools removes and controls limescale in the pool´s body and recycling circuit. It also prevents the spreading of microorganisms, stabilises pH and ROP and controls legionella and algae growth while reducing the use of chemicals necessary for their control by 20% to 50%.

Other advantages are:
  • PH and ROP stabilisation reduces corrosion in water distribution pipelines, metallic parts, pumps and accessories in spite of the water´s high chlorine concentrations.
  • Structured Water maintains sand, anthracite, and fibre in filtration systems in optimum condition delaying or even preventing degrading and hardening. There are also substantial water savings in backwashing of filters.
  • Reduces chlorine smell and irritation of the skin, nasal membranes and eyes. The skin and hair feel soft even after being in the pool for a prolonged time.
The chemical reduction mentioned above should always follow the recommendations by public health authorities to fulfil local and international standards.


Cooling equipment

  • In all water cooling equipment, such as cooling towers, evaporative condensers, chillers, and heat exchangers, Structured Water guarantees the optimum heat exchange rate and transfer between the heat source and the cooling media.
  • Taking into account 1 mm of limescale represents between 8% and 11% of heat transfer loss, preventing it can bring remarkable energy savings. Structured Water prevents corrosion in the whole cooling system, mainly in galvanised parts and pieces with a tendency for "white corrosion" or "white spots" due to zinc oxidation.

Construction industry

  • Structured Water can play an important role in cement factory furnaces, cooling systems and with limescale and corrosion control.  
  • In concrete mixtures using Structured Water, better resistance results can be achieved even with less cement content in the blend.  
  • A higher compression resistance can be achieved even with 7% less cement (15% more resistance than the typical blend with untreated water).

Textile Industry and Printing

Structured Water facilitates the dyeing process in textiles and improves ink solution in printing.
  • Using Structured Water in the dyeing process of knitwear makes it easier and quicker and reduces the drying time, especially in the most complex colours such as black.
  • Improves the structure of textiles, mainly towels.
  • Using Structured Water in adiabatic systems for humidity control in loom rooms controls fibre content in the environment, which might create accidents due to static friction of the fibres.
  • Water structuring devices can be installed in all cooling systems associated with air conditioning and environmental relative humidity control.
 

Dental Clinics

Using Structured Water in dental clinics improves hygiene control:
  • Keeps the spittoon free from limescale which is the cause for foul odours in the gypsum trap. (The clinic´s sink is an excellent environment for microorganism growth, producing gases from blood and other residues and generating foul odours.)
  • Legionella growth in the aerators´ water in the drilling equipment gets controlled.
   
   

Automotive Industry

Besides all cooling and air conditioning systems, there are two remarkable applications:
  • The use of Structured Water for cleaning metal and plastic pieces before the painting process has excellent benefits. Structured Water frees surfaces from dirt particles quicker and drains faster, avoiding watermarks due to non-uniformity of residual water. In most cases, hot water is used in the cleaning process; structuring the water can reduce the temperature by 25% to 50% resulting in substantial energy savings.  The necessary time in drying tunnels is also reduced significantly achieving further energy savings.
Structured Water application in automatic and manual carwash stations shows the following advantages:
  • Structured Water can substitute reverse osmosis equipment in the last rinse even with water hardness up to 350 mg/l calcium carbonate.
  • Savings in the use of detergents and other cleaning agents.
  • Improved wastewater quality.
  • Dirt on the bodywork is easier to clean.
  • Improves and speeds up the drying of the body.

Care homes

  • Deodorant effect in kitchen, baths and laundry.
  • Energy savings in laundry, hot water, cooling and heating systems.
  • Older adults tend to drink more water.
  • Better hydration and therefore, better health condition altogether.
  • Better skin and hair condition and fewer infections.
