  • 1. Gushing Over Water#FLOWPressure & Flow 2013Scott GuglielminoProduct Manager, La Marzocco USA@scottflex
  • 2. FLOW: What we will talk about• What is water• The water cycle• Why baristas should care• Water hardness• Corrosion• Common water questions• Your questions about water
  • 3. FLOW: The Personification• Makes friends easily• Never alone, never wanders away• Always pulling others in• But always a distinct individualLife of the party: The Universal Solvent

  • 6. FLOW: Environmental factors of waterVegetation Acrid
  • 7. FLOW: Environmental factors of waterGranite & Sand Limestone & Other Hardness Minerals

  • 12. FLOW: Water hardnessConcentration of Hardness as Calciium Carbonate (mg/Liter) Source: www.water.usgs.gov
  • 13. Defining Hard WaterSoft 0 to 60 mg/L as calcium carbonateModerately 61 to 120 mg/LHardHard 121 to 180 mg/LVery Hard more than 180 mg/L Source: usgs.gov
  • 14. FLOW: Corrosion
  • 15. pH
  • 16. FLOW: Langelier Saturation IndexLSI = pH - pHsWhere: • pH is the measured water pH • pHs is the pH at saturation in calcite or calcium carbonate and is defined as: pHs = (9.3 + A + B) - (C + D) Where: • A = (Log10 [TDS] - 1) / 10 • B = -13.12 x Log10 (oC + 273) + 34.55 • C = Log10 [Ca2+ as CaCO3] - 0.4 • D = Log10 [alkalinity as CaCO3] Source: wqa.org
