Product Focus: Water Purification Systems
Water quality affects almost every result a laboratory generates. While lab workers tend to treat water as just another utility, lab managers often overspecify water quality.
“Laboratories typically use pure or ultrapure water, but more pure isn’t always better,” says Frank Firicano, division manager at Aries Filter Works (West Berlin, NJ). Aries, a division of filtration media manufacturer ResinTech, turns ion exchange and activated carbon media into point-of-use products.
Because of operating costs and maintenance, operating with ultrapure water may sometimes be overkill. Firicano cautions customers who want their water systems to serve every conceivable situation, “You pay for that.”
