HEB – Boron removal systems

 

The treatment system for removing boron by ion selection helps to remove excess quantities of this element from any water because in certain crops, fundamentally fruit with stones or pips, it can reach a concentration that might be toxic and harmful for the plantation. This toxicity can have a greater effect when contaminated residual or underground water is used for irrigation.

The water to be treated crosses the ionic exchange resin, specially designed to remove boron in aqueous solutions so the result gives water with a 90% reduction of boron.

The exchange capacity is limited and when the resin runs out, it must be regenerated.

Resin regeneration is entirely automated and involves passing a certain concentration of acid through the resin bed, eliminating the boron held on it and making it possible to store the aqueous regeneration solution so that it can subsequently managed as a residue.
