For the complete removal of silica acid or silicates from the osmosis water
hw® silicic acid / silicate removers were primarily developed to remove the residual silicate that is often still present in the ultrapure water (permeate) of reverse osmosis systems. The removing of this remaining silicate, significantly limit the growth of diatoms in the seawater aquarium.
However, the hw® silica acid / silicate remover can do more than just neutralize silica acids. In addition to silicic acid, hw® silicic acid / silicate remover also removes traces of nitrite, nitrate and phosphate.
The hw® silicic acid / silicate removers remove the residual amounts of silica contained in the osmosis water and thus lead to a significant reduction in the growth of diatoms in seawater.
Thus, hw® silicic acid / silicate removers guarantee an absolutely high-purity source water that is completely free of all pollutants.
hw® silicic acid / silicate removers are installed after the reverse osmosis system at the ultrapure water outlet. The capacity is sufficient for approx. 2,500-3,000 liters, depending on the quality (total residual salts) of the osmosis water passed through.
