Eco-Tec’s Demineralizers are able to produce water with a conductivity as low as 0.1 μS/cm with less than 0.010 mg/L of silica using only cation and anion exchange beds. This high level of performance is made possible by the rapid and efficient exchange kinetics resulting from the use of fine mesh resins and shallow resin beds. These in combination with the high flow rates, result in short cycle times, both in service and regeneration.
Other demineralizers are on-stream for approximately 20 hours and require several hours to regenerate. The Recoflo® Demineralizer is typically on-stream for less than 30 minutes and is regenerated in less than 7 minutes. The shorter cycles make the Recoflo® Demineralizer more resistant to organic fouling and allow for the more effective removal of colloidal and ionic silica, while consuming lower volumes of regeneration chemicals overall. With Recoflo®, clients no longer need to rely on a complex and service-intensive mixed bed polisher to attain the high purity water needed in their processes.
