CapDI tunably removes and controls sodium and electrical conductivity (EC) levels arrising from total dissolved solids (TDS) without removing all minerals, allowing users to select the optimal level of sodium and minerals for each crop’s irrigation water. Excessive levels of sodium in irrigation water prevents reuse, and CapDI effectively removes the sodium to acceptable levels (< 1 mMol/L) in the presence of high silica content (> 80 mg/L) while maintaining high recovery (> 80%) at flexible removal rates (50 – 90%).
Horticulture businesses benefit from using CapDI by its low energy consumption, no required chemicals, minimal maintenance, as well as overall reduced water and fertilizer consumption. CapDI provides optimal water quality that enables higher quality products at better yields, all while dramatically lowering operational costs!
Carlos Camero, Sr. VP of Global Sales at Voltea mentions, “CapDI technology has proven to be an effective solution for horticulture water reuse, allowing growers to recycle up to 35% of water and fertilizers, which translates into quantifiable OpEx savings. Voltea’s tunable desalination technology significantly increases our customers’ water-cycle efficiency and enables our mutual commitment to reduce consumption in a highly intensive water market.”
