Title (EN) PROCESS FOR RE-MINERALIZING WATER DEFICIENT IN MAGNESIUM
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE REMINÉRALISATION D’UNE EAU DÉFICIENTE EN MAGNÉSIUM
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention relates to the process of re -mineralizing treated potabiε water that has had hardness components removed by dissolving a magnesium compound in the treated water. The resulting concentration of magnesium, pϊi level and alkalinity level are controlled by the inclusion of a calcium compound such as calcium carbonate and a bypass orifice. The bypass orifice allows a portion of pretreated wafer to bypass a filter that contains the magnesium compound. The process is particularly useful as an in-line process for continuous or semi-continuous treatment of water. The preferred magnesium and calcium compounds include magnesium phosphate dibasic tπhydrate and calcium carbonate, respectively.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un procédé de reminéralisation d’une eau potable traitée dont les composants de dureté ont été éliminés, ledit procédé consistant à dissoudre un composé de magnésium dans l'eau traitée. La concentration de magnésium, le niveau de pH et le niveau d’alcalinité qui en résultent sont régulés par l’incorporation d’un composé de calcium tel que le carbonate de calcium et d’un orifice de dérivation. L’orifice de dérivation permet à une partie de l’eau prétraitée de contourner un filtre qui contient le composé de magnésium. Ce procédé est particulièrement utile en tant que procédé en ligne permettant le traitement continu ou semi-continu de l’eau. Les composés de calcium et de magnésium préférés comprennent respectivement le phosphate de magnésium dibasique, trihydraté, et le carbonate de calcium.
