Process for mineral plant

Coagulation Process

This is the first step in which we add alum chemicals in raw water to remove impurities.

Alum chemistry produces positive charges that clump together with the negative charge of the components and form larger particles that can be easily removed.

After the coagulation process, the water is allowed to settle for 1 hour.

Reverse osmosis :

RO process helps to remove dissolved impurities such as salts from water.

Chlorination of water :

This process is used to kill bacteria and other micro-organisms with the help of chlorine gas bubbling in the chlorine tank.

Sand filtration

The water is then passed through the sand filter to remove unwanted impurities.

Carbon Filtration De-chlorination

After the sand filtering process, we then pass water through a carbon filter that removes odors and color. Dechlorination also occurs using carbon filters.

Packing and Bottling

Packing and bottling is done with the help of machines.

Mineral Water Bottling Plant Cost Estimation

RO Plant – 2000 ltr13.50
Alum Treatment Tanks20.70
Chlorination Tank (STEEL)10.50
Sand Filter & Carbon Filter1 – 10.90
UV Disinfectant System10.25
Raw water tank10.30
Purified water tank10.30
Pumping motors20.40
Bottling Machine Automatic16
Lab Equipments11
Miscellaneous Tools1

From the above table, we come to know that the cost of the machines for starting a mineral water plant is about Rs. 15 lakhs. In addition to machinery, you will need a proper location for plant installation and some base furniture.

After the establishment of the plant, you have made a proper business plan for the production of bottled drinking water. That business plan will include the following details –

  1. Salaries and wages for employees
  2. Working capital per month
  3. Production target
  4. Other expenditure in raw materials, if any

Production Capacity & Profit Margin Calculation

The total output of your plant will depend on how many hours you will work, i.e the number of shifts assuming that 1 shift is 8 hours. Suppose you will be 2 shifts i.e. 16 hours. Therefore, 8000 bottles can be produced in 8hrs.

Profit Margin Calculation

Now we will cool the annual profit in this business :

If you calculate the daily production 8000 bottles i.e the annual production will be 8000 X 365 = 2920000 bottles.

Number of crates – Suppose a crate has 12 bottles – 2920000/12 = 24333 boxes annually

The selling price of a crate will be – Rs 80 per crate
Total turnover – 80 x 24333 = Rs 1 crore 94 lakhs
Total profit = Business – Cost of production

Now you have to calculate the cost of production of 24333 boxes. The cost of production will include salaries to employees, raw material expenses, electricity usage, laboratory expenses and other expenses.

The cost of producing 24333 crates of packaged drinking water will come to about 12 lakhs monthly. Therefore the annual cost of production will be 1 crore 44 lakhs.

Total profit = 1 crore 94 lakh – 1 crore 44 lakh = 50 lakh annual
