Shaping water for growth

Agricultural Water Treatment

Water is used in a variety of agricultural water treatment processes which require a specialised approach. On the basis of a comprehensive analysis of the process, water consumption and the quality of the final product, Lubron Water delivers a customised design for the best results with the lowest possible operating costs.

Many customers have iron filtration to treat their borehole supply. We have worked for many years removing iron from water to use on irrigation or process, from tomatoes to flower producers. An effective iron filtration system lasts for many years with minimal maintenance, we have customers with systems over 20 years old. We fully design the right system for you following an initial water analysis.

We firstly oxygenate the water with air so the iron can be collected on the filter media. Then the iron filter will clean itself automatically at a pre-determined interval, flushing the iron to drain. This is determined by the amount of iron in the supply water, and the quality required.

We can provide iron filters of any size and application.

Benefits of Lubron’s wastewater treatment for agriculture

Optimal crop development

Every crop has specific needs to enable it to deliver optimum yield. Whether using rainwater or a surface water source, the water composition must be correct for the specific application. Our specialists speak your language, understand the challenges, have extensive knowledge of legislation and regulations, and can work with you to deliver agricultural wastewater treatment plants and technology shaped around your target performance.

Reducing wastewater

With the right water conditions, such as low salt (sodium) concentrations, water can be reused more often. This ensures optimal use of fertilisers, resulting in less water wastage, benefiting the environment with a reduction in surface water pesticide levels.

Resource efficiency

Corrosion and scale deposits can lead to significant energy loss, for example in heating systems, such as boilers and CHP. Through the water softening process, deposits are significantly reduced, equipment operates more efficiently and lasts longer, resulting in savings in time and capital expenditure.

Performance and reliability

When it comes to heating, irrigation water, or air humidification, dirt, lime and biomass formation can be damaging and lead to clogging of the system. By minimising these elements, the service life of the system is extended and service interruptions can be prevented. Lubron’s extensive range of highly efficient solutions includes: cooling and boiler systems, CHP and heat pumps.

Reducing operating costs

A well-designed farm water treatment system reduces operating costs. Our experts work with you to specify and consider whole project expenditure and operational requirements. Lubron delivers the latest design and technologies to ensure our systems are cost-effective, sustainable and reliable.

Depending on the water quality requirements, a number of techniques can be applied in the agriculture sector.

Our agricultural wastewater treatment solutions

Water softening

The right water softening solution can eliminate scale deposits in equipment. Additionally, in cooling and boiler systems, the service life and efficiency of equipment can be significantly extended by preventing corrosion and scale deposits.

Water Softening Systems


Salts and minerals can be found in pipes and in spring water. In order to treat this issue, water is desalted, a process also referred to as desalination, using Reverse Osmosis (RO) to achieve usable water. To achieve purified water, the RO water receives a secondary treatment with electro-deionisation (EDI).

Water Demineralisation


Filtration occurs in nature when rain water passes between many layers of sand and gravel. The gravel and sand act as a filter to collect solid particles and therefore leave the water pure. Lubron has adapted this process to achieve the same effect in the agriculture sector.

Industrial Water Filtration

Microbiological control

In a controlled environment, a number of techniques can be applied for microbiological control, including UV-disinfection and Reverse Osmosis. Lubron’s leading technology ensures a safe and healthy environment with optimal reliability.
