Control requirements for ultrapure water are demanding due to the need to integrate a number of purification processes. The need to reduce contamination to very low levels challenges the instrument suppliers.
Ultrapure water is ideal for critical laboratory applications such as ultra trace analysis, ICP-MS (Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry) and molecular techniques requiring the ultimate inorganic water purity. This system consistently delivers the highest level of ultrapure water, which enables you to concentrate on obtaining accurate results.
AQUA SOLUTIONS offer various system options for your laboratory ultrapure water needs. Whether your application requires basic analytical grade, analytical grade ultralow TOC, or basic biological grade, AQUA SOLUTIONS has you covered.
Also part of the ultrapure water purification process is pre-treatment, which can be completed with a reverse osmosis (RO) system. These systems remove 95-99% of the contaminants in tap water, representing a cost-effective technology for pre-treating tap water prior to final purification by a DI system.
Preventive maintenance requirements are often included in the automation system. The reverse osmosis system is maintenance prone. The filters need to be cleaned or replaced on a regular basis. The differential measurement can be used to determine at which point the filters need to be cleaned or replaced. Typically, a pressure switch is used in these applications; however, problems can arise from vibration and pressure surges in the system.
With McIlvaine Company’s ultrapure water market forecast for 2013, there is a clear value in Type I Ultrapure water purification and treatment systems as well as reverse osmosis (RO) systems.
