Deionization (“DI Water” or “Demineralization”) simply means the removal of ions.
Ions are electrically charged atoms or molecules found in water that have either a net negative or positive charge. For many applications that use water as a rinse or ingredient, these ions are considered impurities and must be removed from the water.
Ions with a positive charge are called “Cations” and ions with a negative charge are called “Anions”. Ion exchange resins are used to exchange non desirable cations and anions with hydrogen and hydroxyl, respectively, forming pure water (H2O).
DI water is commonly used in a variety of industries and applications, including:
Laboratories and research facilities:
DI water is often used in experiments and tests that require ultra-pure water with a known and consistent level of purity.
Medical and pharmaceutical industries:
DI water is used in medical devices, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and other healthcare-related applications that require high-purity water to ensure safety and efficacy.
Electronics and semiconductor manufacturing:
DI water is used in the production of electronic components and semiconductors to prevent contamination and ensure high-quality products.
Automotive and manufacturing industries:
DI water is used in cooling systems, boiler feed water, and other industrial processes to prevent mineral build-up and reduce the risk of corrosion.
Cosmetics and personal care products:
DI water is used as a base ingredient in many cosmetics and personal care products, such as lotions, shampoos, and soaps.
