Ultrapure water is essential to the success of any modern laboratory. Laboratories that want to ensure both quality and consistency of their ultrapure water need to understand a key step in the water purification process: the “pre-treatment” step. The pre-treatment step precedes the polishing step that produces ultrapure water. It consists of purification technologies that remove the bulk of water contaminants from tap water, and thus, significantly contributes to the overall quality of the ultrapure water. In this webinar, you will learn about the different pre-treatment steps that are currently used in laboratories, and which technologies are recommended for producing consistently good water quality.
As an attendee you will:
- Be knowledgeable about how the pre-treatment step fits in the overall water purification process
- Learn about the efficiency of the different pre-treatment steps in removing water contaminants
- Be informed of how the different pre-treatment steps affect the quality of ultrapure water, based on relevant experiments (e.g. TOC monitoring, HPLC, IC, ICP-MS)
- Be able to make the best decision on which pre-treatment step will work best for your laboratory
