ADVANCEES - Ultrapure Water Application - Custom skid-mounted water purification equipments - Water and Wastewater

Ultrapure water (UPW) is water that has been purified to very strict specifications, containing by definition only H20, and H+ and OH- ions in equilibrium. Therefore, ultrapure water conductivity is about 0,055 uS/cm at 25oC, also expressed as resistivity of 18,2 MOhm. Ultra-pure water is mainly used in the semiconductor and pharmaceutical industry often is produced through processes like membrane filtration or ion exchange to reach the ultimate conductivity of 10 uS/cm. The demineralized water is then processed through a high performance Mixed Bed or by Electro deionization.

In general these are the main steps to achieve desired ultrapure water quality.

  • TDS: 100-12,,000 mg/l (as NaCl)
  • SDI15: < 3.0
  • Temperture: 25 to 35ºC (77 to 95°F)
  • Recovery: 70 to 85%
  • Nominal Rejection: >98%
  • Incoming Power: 480/380/220/110V 60/50Hz

Note: Required 3bar (45psi) minimum customer supplied pressure to high pressure RO Feed Pump. Temperatures and high salinities will reduce system productivity.
