Introduction

Introduction

Ultrapure water systems utilize a variety of industrial water treatment components, such as absolute cartridge filtration, deionization, ultraviolet, and reverse osmosis to treat source water and remove dangerous contaminants. Ultrapure water is strictly regulated because it is mainly used in medical and laboratory applications.

What is Ultrapure Water?

What is Ultrapure Water?

Ultrapure water is source water that has been treated to meet strict regulations on the number of biological organisms and dissolved solids or gasses the water contains. The water must be free of any and all contaminants and impurities in order to earn the label of “ultrapure water.”

Ultrapure Water Classification

Ultrapure Water Classification

Depending on the amount of treatment the water has undergone to have its contaminants removed, ultrapure water is divided into three categories of Reagent Grade Water: Type I, Type II, and Type III.

4

Type I Reagent Grade Water

Type I Reagent Grade Water

Type I Reagent Grade Water is the grade of water with the strictest filtration requirements and has the highest purity standards of the three types. Type I ultrapure water is used for sensitive laboratory procedures where a high level of accuracy is crucial.

5

Type II Reagent Grade Water

Type II Reagent Grade Water

Type II Reagent Grade Water is purified water that can be used in general laboratory testing applications, but is not used for delicate procedures like the ones Type I is used for. Type II is the most frequently produced and used grade of ultrapure water.

6

Type III Reagent Grade Water

Type III Reagent Grade Water

Type III Reagent Grade Water is the lowest of the three grades of ultrapure water, and is used for rinsing the glassware that is used in laboratory procedures.

Problems Solved with Ultrapure Water

Problems Solved with Ultrapure Water

Many problems that can seriously inhibit laboratories from producing the most reliable results, can be remedied or prevented by using ultrapure water. Contamination from bacteria and other contaminants, corrosion from dissolved solids and gasses, and skewed results from errant organics in source water can all be avoided if a laboratory utilizes ultrapure water.

Ultrapure Water Applications

Ultrapure Water Applications

Although it may be the most helpful in laboratory settings where the results of experiments and procedures can be wildly skewed by contaminants in source water, ultrapure water has a variety of applications. Electronics and pharmaceuticals manufacturing rely on the water used in the creation of products, to be a “blank slate,” as to not interfere with the other components going into the products. If the water used in those environments isn’t pure, then the electronics and medications could malfunction or be dangerous.
