Boron removal by ion-selective


Equipment for the removal of boron from water contaminated with this element by means of selective exchange resins. Boron is an element that, although necessary, the difference between deficit and excessive absorption ( toxicity9 is generally small in plants. Irrigation water is the main source of boron contribution which causes toxicity in soils and it manifests itself by the reduction of the root growth and the sprouting, besides inhibiting the photosynthetic capacity in the leaves which end up yellowing and finally falling.

The equipment has the capacity to adjust the level of boron to that required for each crop, being able to eliminate up to 95 percent of the boron present in the water with very low operating costs.
