Incoming mains or borehole water would typically be filtered via an RO system for brewing liquor production and boiler feed. Microbreweries and craft brewers will often filter the incoming water with carbon cartridges to remove chlorine and other chemicals, which could affect the taste of the beer.

Stages of Filtration & Water Treatment

Feed Water

Varying sources of water and mains pipes results in different contaminants being contained that are affected by seasonal changes, pipework types and roadworks.

Particle removal

Prevents debris, scale flakes, dirt and particle build up in pipework, tanks, equipment and where present, premature blinding of filtration stages further along the cascade.

Chlorine and Organics removal

Helps the taste and odour of the liquid and where present, protects RO membranes from chemical attack.

Ultraviolet Disinfection

UV light impedes bacterial growth by sterilising the DNA of microorganisms, suppressing bio-film and bacteria colony growth.
