Type 3 Water Production

Pure water that is used within the pharmaceutical industry is classified into 3 types: Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3. Out of the three types, Type 3 is the least pure in quality and is used in applications such as producing cleaning agents and diluting ingredients down to the required strength. Even though the purest water is not required, it is still important for Type 3 water to be thoroughly cleaned to stop bacterial contamination within labs and when used as a component within medicines.

To purify the water to this level and ensure no scale build up, particulates and organics need to be removed from the water before the reverse osmosis stage. This will further the filtration by removing ~99% of bacteria, ions and dissolved solids from the water. A polishing stage removes all remaining salts and ions using deionisation resin, before going through final ultraviolet sterilisation to control the future growth of bacteria and microorganisms within the water when it is stored.

Treatment Process

1

Particle Removal

Our cartridges offer outstanding absorption of sediment, dirt, sand and scale flakes to prevent filtration systems from blockage and microorganism growth.

2

Chlorine and Organics Removal

Carbon cartridges are a long established choice for the reduction and removal of chlorine, VOCs and heavy metals whilst reducing water hardness.

3

Reverse Osmosis

Pure water (permeate)  is produced during reverse osmosis by applying pressure to force water through a semi permeable membrane, leaving a majority of the present ions and dissolved solids on the other side to drain as waste (concentrate).

4

Post RO Deionisation

Our performance mixed bed resin is specially designed for deionisation directly after reverse osmosis. It holds a 1 : 1.5 ratio of strong acid cations and strong base anions to attract and remove all ions, salts and dissolved solids.

5

Ultraviolet Sterilisation

Our UV Systems produce light radiation at 253.7 nm, the ideal wavelength to kill and inhibit the growth of 99.9% of bacteria and viruses without any by product or requirement of chemical treatment.
