Ultra-Pure Water Purification Process
The RO system, complemented by a bactericidal UV system, serves as crucial pretreatment for the electrodeionization system. To prevent biofilm formation and airborne contamination, the resultant pure water is stored in a polyethylene tank. The purified water undergoes a final treatment, exposing it to UV light radiation and post-treatment cartridges, ensuring the elimination of all organic and ionized pollutants.
Alternatively, a widely embraced ultra-purification method involves a series of steps, starting with activated carbon filters, pre-chlorination, antiscalant dosing, and cartridge filtration for effective pretreatment. Subsequently, the water undergoes multi-stage RO filtration, culminating in a polishing phase with an electrodeionization system, resulting in the production of Ultra-Pure Water (UPW).”
