The benefits of drinking bottled water

January 24th, 2013 | Posted by admin in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on The benefits of drinking bottled water)

waterSince our bodies are made up mostly of water, it comes as no surprise that they are reliant on fluids. This is why it is vital that we have an adequate intake of water each day, not only to promote good health but also to avoid problems such as dehydration, which can then lead to a multitude of issues.

While water is freely available from your tap, a rising number of people these days get their water intake through drinking bottled water. In fact, bottled water has become so popular that it has become a multi-billion dollar industry! There are many reasons why people prefer to drink bottled water compared to tap water, despite the cost implication. Some of these benefits include:

  • Taste: Water straight from the tap can sometimes have an odd taste, such as a metallic taste, which can be due to factors such as chemical treatments. When you drink bottled water, you should find that the taste is much better and far more palatable
  • Safety: When you drink pure bottled water, you have the peace of mind that you are not drinking water that is at risk of being contaminated – something that is particularly important if you are visiting certain countries abroad.
  • Convenience: Bottled water is very convenient, as you can carry it with you wherever you go without the need to look for taps and cups whenver you want a drink.
  • Emergencies: If you buy bottled water you will not have to worry as much if there is a problem with your water supply for whatever reason, as you will still have water available to drink.

What are Water Chilling Systems?

Water chilling system, also known as water cooling system, is a method of heat removal from industrial equipment and components. This method is commonly used in large industrial facilities, such as hydroelectric generators, steam electric power plants, chemical plants, and petroleum refineries.

In addition to these, the method is also used to cool barrels of machine guns and lubricant oils. The convective heat transfer mechanism is applied to transfer the heat, as water is used as a conductor.

Most big industries use water cooling over air cooling due to the numerous benefits it has. It is not only inexpensive, but is also non toxic. Water is naturally capable to transfer heat over greater distances with reduced temperature difference. It has high density, thermal conductivity and specific heat capacity. All these qualities combined give water cooling an edge over air cooling.

However, on the down side, water causes biological growth and corrosion of metal parts. Additionally, dissolved minerals in water are concentrated and leave scales after the water is evaporated.

Water chilling system has been criticized on several occasions due to its vast impact on environment. Many people are concerned about the heavy amounts of water evaporated due to the process. Water, being a necessity and habitant for aquatic animals, must be taken care of. Scientists are trying to figure out ways to make water more useable and minimize the impurities that are added in water through soil and air. These impurities, especially solids, are the main cause of scale building.
