Deionized Water Filter Systems

Deionization is a type of water purification where water flows through resin beads with positive and negative charges, performing a process known as ion exchange. This removes almost all of the minerals, salts, and ions from the water and gives you what’s known as deionized water, also known as DI water.

Because of how thorough deionization is in removing contaminants, DI water is often considered one of the purest forms of water. If you’re interested in learning more about how this process works, here are a few facts you should know:


How Is Deionization Done?

This water purification process is often done using deionized water systems. These are a series of tanks and filters that performs the ion exchange process. A DI water system can use two mixed bed tanks to help ensure that the contaminants are effectively removed.

Deionized Water Applications

Because of its high purity, DI water is often used in laboratories, manufacturing, and other related industries. This is because it won’t react to other materials as much since its ions and dissolved salts have already been removed. It also won’t leave behind any mineral deposits and residue.

Deionized water is still safe to drink. However, since essential minerals like magnesium, calcium, fluoride, and more have been removed, drinking DI water won’t give you many benefits.


Distilled vs DI Water

Distillation and deionization are two water purification processes that can produce highly purified water. However, they both have notable differences. Distillation works by boiling water to certain temperatures until it evaporates and condenses, leaving behind impurities and contaminants. The whole process may take between four to six hours to produce a single gallon.

For DI water, it won’t take that long. A deionized water system can purify your water at a much faster rate. You can also place a reverse osmosis filter before your DI water system to improve its purification rate.
