The ELGA PURELAB Chorus provides a solution for laboratories that require high levels of water purity. As a modular system, it allows users to configure a customized solution based on their application, budget, and lab configuration. There are three systems available to meet a variety of quality requirements for critical applications. The ELGA PURELAB Chorus 1 delivers Type 1+/1 ultrapure water for laboratories that require high volumes of water. When general laboratory grade water is needed, the ELGA PURELAB Chorus 2 offers flexibility to suit quality and volume demands. The ELGA PURELAB Chorus 3 provides Type 3 general grade water direct from a potable tap source for general water requirements, such as glassware rinsing, heating baths, or to feed to Type 1 water systems. The ELGA PURELAB Chorus 1 Complete, ELGA PURELAB Chorus 2+ RO/DI, and ELGA PURELAB Chorus 2+ RO/EDI are the latest additions to this line. Storage tanks of 15L, 30L, 60L, and 100L are available.

The WaterPro BT System from Labconco is designed for laboratories that require between one and ten liters of water per day, delivering ultrapure Type 1 up to 18.2 megohm-cm at a typical rate of >0.5 liter per minute. Type 1 water is ideal for instrumental trace element analysis, mixing standardized acid/base solutions, and media solutions. An optional UV lamp further reduces bacteria and TOC levels. Reverse osmosis (Type 3) water is produced and stored in the six-liter tank at a rate of three liters per hour. Type 3 water is ideal for reagent preparation and glassware rinsing. Compact, lightweight, and quick to install, the WaterPro BT may be easily transported and shared among labs. To install, the WaterPro BT requires only a simple connection to a tap water supply, drain, and electrical source. The Filter Pack bundles all water filter technologies (reverse osmosis, activated carbon filtration, and deionization) into one twin cartridge package, allowing users to snap the Filter Pack into place, completing installation.

The MEDICA systems from ELGA LabWater are designed to provide water to clinical analyzers specified to Clinical Laboratory Reagent Water (CLRW) standards. Whether the lab has access to tap or partially purified water, or needs to feed analyzers on a small or large scale, the range of MEDICA systems can accommodate. The MEDICA 7/15 is designed to directly feed low-volume clinical analyzers with up to 7 or 15 liters per hour of CLRW grade (CLSI) water. Recirculation of purified water ensures consistent, high quality with low bacterial specification. These lab water systems have audible and visible alarms and can be fitted with a docking tank to minimize benchtop or wall space requirements. The MEDICA range has long-lasting deionization cartridges helping to reduce exchange frequencies and running costs. All MEDICA units have a bypass loop, which continues to provide NCCLS compliant water to the analyzer in emergency situations.

The WaterPro PS Polishing Systems from Labconco deliver Type I water to general chemistry laboratories. With purity up to 18.2 megohm-cm, WaterPro PS Polishing Systems dispense water from either a dispensing valve or dispensing gun at a typical rate of 1.8 liters per minute. WaterPro PS models are available in multiple configurations capable of filtering impurities. The control panel includes a digital readout of water quality level and features a user-friendly timed dispense feature that allows unattended dispensing of pure water. WaterPro PS units utilize leak detection moisture sensors and may also be purchased with a UV light to achieve low TOCs and bacteria.

Each WaterPro model may be used with a final filter to reduce contaminants greater than 0.2 microns. The cabinet features a stainless steel front panel and built-in dispensing center for a smaller overall footprint and easier installation. The large capacity filter media bowls are made of unpigmented polypropylene, an inert material free of water contaminating impurities.
