UV benefits over distillation
Millipore Corporations Elix ultraviolet water purification system incorporates RO, electrodeionization and germicidal UV lamp technologies to remove ions, organics, particles and bacteria in a system more efficient and more effective than conventional disinfection. As a result, the system produces pure water whose ionic quality for the majority of ions is equivalent and, in some cases, superior to the product water resulting from distillation. In addition, total organic carbon levels are significantly lower. The Elix UV systems are designed to meet users requirements ranging from 10 to 4,000 liters of water per day with low water and electricity consumption that translates into long-term cost savings.
