If you get chance get a tour of a modern large scale 'Brewery' They are giant chemical plants, their water treatment plants would put most water authorities to shame! The 'yeast room' is more secure than most biohazard plants. Nothing is left to chance from front gate to back fence, 100% computerised.Hi,
Does anybody know how professional brewery’s remove chloramine from their water?
I know Camden tablets will do but surely they don’t use them?
Yes, this.RO is probably necessary to take it out. I don't know that carbon filtration alone would be effective against chloramine.
But, am I right in assuming chloramine will not cross the RO filter?I had a discussion with the guys at Vyair about removing chloramine not long back in connection with my own 4-stage RO machine - which despite having an activated carbon filter does not effectively remove chloramine I’m sorry to say.
To remove chloramine you need a catalytic carbon filter. This is an improved version of activated carbon.
Ordinary carbon filters do not remove chloramine. Activated carbon filters do but only if the flow rate is very low (the water needs to be in contact with the activated carbon for quite a while). Catalytic carbon filters will remove chloramine at a much faster rate than activated carbon and is recommended.
It depends on the make / model and quality of the membrane, ask for one that is chloramine compatible Dow-Filmtech make one the is made in the US of A. The Chinese ones are rubbish they will say "designed to give 10ppm" ie dont work but look the part, Cheers.But, am I right in assuming chloramine will not cross the RO filter?
That looks similar to one I just ordered. I had been looking into chloramine use and am wanting to do what I can to reduce it before the RO membrane to prolong it's life.I found these;
