WATER PURIFICATION-01

A Complete Guide to Water Purification

When it comes to ensuring a safe water supply for residential, industrial, and commercial applications, water purification solutions are an indispensable necessity. Whether it is derived from a dug or drilled well, supplied courtesy of a local municipality, or obtained from recycled wastewater, water needs to be treated. Specifically, purification is necessary because untreated water more…

RO and Dialysis: Use Cases for Chemistry and Medicine

There’s no doubt that the medical research industry is one of the world’s largest consumers of water treatment systems. Research institutions and hospitals alike invest in systems like dialysis and reverse osmosis to remove or exchange specific mineral solutes from the water. Many chemical processes require highly specific water composition, and the easiest way to more…

Control Water Quality: How to Custom-Design Reverse Osmosis Water Systems for Maximum Performance

Designing a customized reverse osmosis system provides the greatest amount of control over permeate water quality. This is especially true for RO systems providing water treatment in specialized industries, such as pharmaceuticals. When water purification standards are particularly stringent, a custom-designed system allows the freedom to target specific permeate parameters. How can a layman make more…

How Do Ultraviolet Sterilizers Work?

Ultraviolet sterilizers, a technology used since the start of the 20th century, are used to disinfect and to control the spread of infections. It uses UV light with an electromagnetic radiation that has a wavelength falling in the range of 10 nanometers and 400 nanometers. Ultraviolet light types are, because of their differing wavelengths and more…

Is Your City’s Drinking Water Toxic?

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is a federal agency that is responsible for making sure the drinking water in the U.S. is safe to consume. But unfortunately, the EPA has failed to protect an estimated 63 million people in the U.S. from being exposed to drinking water that contains harmful contaminants. Where are these contaminants more…

What is Deionized Water? RO Water vs. DI Water

While many consumers know about reverse osmosis as one of the top commercial and home water treatment options, there’s less common knowledge available about deionized water. You could easily be persuaded to invest in different water treatment technology with the right buzzwords, but is different always better? Before purchasing a water treatment system of either more…

Testing Chemical Compatibilities in Reverse Osmosis Systems

Pre-testing for compatibility is a crucial step before adding any new chemical to the system of your reverse osmosis treatment regimen. The average system relies on a handful of different chemical types, from biocides to antiscalants, and beyond. Not all chemicals are compatible with RO systems, however; and using the wrong chemicals can lead to more…
