For the average person, water purification is something you do around the house to make sure you have clean drinking water and clean water for dishes and laundry. But water purification can also occur on a much larger scale than that. At Ultra Pure Water Technologies, we specialize in numerous methods of industrial water purification in Cincinnati, OH, and as such, we need some large-scale equipment and top-of-the-line technology to be able to purify water in mass quantities for a wide variety of applications. Deionized and demineralized water is important for keeping manufacturing parts completely clean and spot-free, and is often used in cleaning in some very high-tech environments, or settings in which sterility is an absolute necessity.
One of the most essential tools in our industrial water purification processes is a service deionization (SDI) exchange tank. The deionization process is somewhat complicated, but today’s SDI equipment and programs allow industrial facilities to more quickly and easily process water. Any organizations that want to limit the amount of money and time they have to spend on water purification while still getting excellent results would do well to invest in one of these pieces of equipment.
Here’s an overview of what you need to know.
SDI equipment for all types of industrial needs
When you’re looking for SDI equipment, you have a variety of options available to you. You can find either two-bed or mixed-bed deionizers that have an acid-regenerated cation connected in series, with alkaline-regenerated anion vessels. That two-bed system features a separate cation and anion in two different vessels, but in the mixed-bed system they are found together in a single vessel.
While these are different systems in terms of their design, the end goal in both is to provide purified, demineralized water for the purposes of manufacturing, medicine and more.
You also have the option to look for SDI exchange tanks that are more portable. A two-bed SDI system is typically used if the water quality must be close to a specific resistivity point but not necessarily ultra pure.
Compare this to mixed-bed SDI systems, which are capable of producing extremely pure water close to 18 Megohm and can achieve a water quality commonly referred to as “ultra pure.” Mixed-bed tanks are often used for polishers after water has already flown through a reverse osmosis system, allowing the user to take that water and purify it even more. This makes mixed-bed tanks particularly useful in applications that require the highest standards of purity, including laboratory settings for testing and instrument sterilization, as well as certain manufacturing processes.
So, which is the type of SDI system that best suits your facility and its needs?
