Water purification system: What systems exist in a laboratory?

Good quality water is considered a key element to successfully carry out the analyzes and experiments that are carried out in laboratories. Laboratory water purification systems provide a source of pure water, continuously and alternatively, to carry out the different analyses, tests and experiments that are carried out in a laboratory.

A water purification system is equipment used to remove inorganic ions, bacteria, gases, particles and organic contaminants that may be present in tap water. Thus providing an important source of pure water for many laboratory procedures, since perfectly pure distilled water is required for most of these procedures.

The most widely used water purification systems today for laboratory applications are ion exchange systems, reverse osmosis and UV radiation.

  • Ion exchange systems: These use the demineralization and deionization of water to remove unwanted ions and replace them with desirable ions. They are efficient systems for the production of clean water for use in the laboratory through regeneration by deionization with acids and bases.
  • Reverse Osmosis: These systems work by sending water at high pressure through a semi-permeable membrane, which is responsible for filtering unwanted minerals and microorganisms from the water.
  • Ultraviolet (UV) radiation: UV water treatment works by passing the feed water through ultraviolet lights before it is discharged through the faucet. It is a highly effective system for the elimination of microorganisms and other biological organisms that may be present in the water.

Advantages offered by water purification systems

  • They facilitate the removal of unwanted contaminants.
  • They do not require expensive technology.
  • Offers the immediate availability of pure water.

Importance of water purification systems in laboratories

The importance of having purified water available immediately in the laboratories granted by the purification system lies in the multiple purposes for which it is used; purposes such as drug production, laboratory ice preparation, solution preparation, reagent dissolution, culture media preparation, sample processing, among many others. That otherwise would not be possible to perform effectively. In addition, not having the immediate availability of pure water, forces you to resort to supplying it from suppliers, and despite the fact that it is an alternative solution; a delay in the delivery would be equivalent to a delay in the daily processes in the laboratory. That is why the water purification system is essential and must be present in each laboratory.

What do we offer you at Kalstein?
