Why Remove Carbon Dioxide (CO2) From Water

The importance of removing Carbon Dioxide in water!

Carbon dioxide exists naturally in nature as free CO2 and can be found in many water sources from lakes, streams, or other surface water bodies. Carbon dioxide occurs naturally in small amounts (about 0.04 percent) in the Earth's atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is a minor part of the air that humans breathe. Free carbon dioxide in water causes an ionic load problem for ion exchange. Resin treatments such as ion resins or continuous deionization (CDI) systems. Having excess CO2 in water, causes several problems for the ion exchange process that includes an increase of regeneration, reduction in resin bed life, and of course more down time of the equipment for maintenance. To avoid costly damage to your equipment, it is important to monitor and maintain the efficiency of your system.

Decarbonators are the most cost effective method to remove and strip the CO2 from a water process to protect equipment, lower operating cost, helps prevent corrosion, and to works to raise the pH of the water in your system.

The most economical way to remove free carbon dioxide in water is by utilizing a process called “Decarbonation” or sometimes referred to as “Degasification”. Utilizing the decarbonation process will remove CO2 levels to 99% or higher. DeLoach Industries offers a wide range of decarbonation and degasification equipment for municipal, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and the industrial markets. With over 60 years of experience in the water treatment industry, for more information or to learn more contact the professionals at DeLoach Industries Inc. at (941) 371-4995.
