Five Methods of Achieving Ultrapure Water

In order for industrial source water to be named ultrapure water, it is required to meet strict regulations. These regulations are in place to ensure peak performance in several manufacturing processes.

Introduction

Introduction

In order for industrial source water to be named ultrapure water, it is required to meet strict regulations on the amount of biological organisms, dissolved solids, organic carbon molecules, and suspended gasses present within the water. These regulations are in place to ensure peak performance in the manufacturing processes of electronics, optical products and pharmaceuticals. WaterProfessionals utilizes over twenty different methods to achieve ultrapure water, including:

2

Activated Carbon

Activated Carbon

Activated carbon filters are frequently employed in the industrial process of removing organic compounds from water in order to achieve ultrapure water. Alone, it is not capable of removing every possible type of contaminant, so it is often utilized in conjunction with other methods of water filtration.

3

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis

The process of creating ultrapure water from contaminated source water is typically accomplished in part by the use of reverse osmosis. Source water is run through a semi-permeable membrane under pressure, with contaminants getting trapped in the filter and pure water passing through to its next purification treatment.

4

Nanofiltration

Nanofiltration

Nanofiltration offers a higher flux rate and uses less energy than traditional processes, such as reverse osmosis, making it a popular choice in ultrapure water production. As water quality standards become more stringent, options like nanofiltration as utilized more often in industrial settings.

5

Ultrafiltration

Ultrafiltration

Ultrafiltration is the process of filtering source water using a semi-permeable membrane that physically removes suspended particles from the water. Depending on the pore size rating of the ultrafiltration membrane, it can remove particles of contaminants up to 105 Daltons in size.

6

Ion Exchange

Ion Exchange

The ion exchange method of producing ultrapure water involved the exchange of ions between the source water and a solid resin bed. The source water flows over the resin bed, with the ions of contaminants are attracted to the resin ions, leaving a result of clean, pure water.
