What is Demineralized Water?
Demineralized water, also called demi-water or desalinated water, is water from which all salts and minerals have been removed through special processes such as ion exchange or reverse osmosis. The result is water of high purity, free of contaminants and salts.
What do you use Demineralized Water for?
- Laboratory applications: Due to its purity, demi-water is ideal for laboratory experiments and analyses where the presence of ions and minerals can influence the results.
- Industrial use: In industries it is used as a coolant, in production processes and for cleaning where normal water can be harmful.
- Car batteries: It is used to fill and maintain car batteries.
- Steam systems: Prevents limescale and corrosion in steam systems and boilers.
Properties of Demineralized Water
Because it is free of salts and minerals, demineralized water has unique properties such as very low conductivity. It is also not suitable for long-term human consumption because it lacks essential minerals.
