Ingredient Water

Water is the primary ingredient of any soft drink, making up about 90% of a conventional soft drink, and up to 99% of a diet soft drink. Therefore it is of paramount importance that the water used in the production of any soft drink is of the highest quality. On a basic level the water used must meet public health regulations, meaning it must be free from any harmful microorganisms such as various bacteria or protozoa (particularly cryptosporidium). The water used not only needs to be safe but should be removed of any substances that could affect taste or appearance, such as any visible solids or fine particles that can cause hazing, or chlorine residue that can leave a foul-taste.

Filtration is essential to remove any of the above impurities and ensure a safe, high-quality product with an ensured shelf-life. Softened water offers a popular starting place for many soft drinks manufacturers, for the removal of salts and ions through reverse osmosis, and the removal of chlorine through activated carbon, ensures safe, high-quality water that will not negatively impact the taste, appearance, or microbial stability of the soft drink when blended with the fruit syrups.

Treatment Process


Particle Removal

Our cartridges offer outstanding absorption of sediment, dirt, sand and scale flakes to prevent filtration systems from blockage and microorganism growth.


Chlorine and Organics Removal

Carbon cartridges are a long established choice for the reduction and removal of chlorine, VOCs and heavy metals whilst reducing water hardness.


Reverse Osmosis

Pure water (permeate)  is produced during reverse osmosis by applying pressure to force water through a semi permeable membrane, leaving a majority of the present ions and dissolved solids on the other side to drain as waste (concentrate).


Fine Particle Removal

Typically during the finalising stages of water treatment, a finer touch is required to filter out the particulates within water that fall below 1 micron in size. The delicacy of this stage makes it of paramount importance, as the smaller impurities that are harder to remove from water can be some of the most negatively affecting contaminants.
