The production of potable water can vary from one country to another. For instance, in the Middle East, potable water is produced from seawater treatment plant where the Reverse Osmosis process is used.
Lime has an important role in this process for two main reasons:
- Adjustment of the pH
- Remineralisation of the water
SODIMATE has acquired the trust of several valuable companies specialized in the seawater treatment like METITO, WABAG, SIDEM just to name a few.
Mainly the SODIMATE scope of equipment consists of:
- Storage device for Lime: it can be Silo (big lime consumption), Big bag Emptying station (jambo bag) or Tip Sack Hopper (25 kg bag)
- Mechanical arch breaker / Bin activator
- Screw feeder
- Preparation tank
- Skid of pumps
One of the most important projects that SODIMATE has been commissioned for is the DUBA project in Saudi Arabia with METITO SHARJAH. This is considered one of the most successful projects in terms of delivery and operation.
Duba has been awarded in the global water award in 2020.
