Ultrapure Laboratory Water System with Bagtank Technology
10 Sep 2017
Sartorius presents a system for laboratories needing low volumes of ultrapure water
Arium mini is an especially compact ultrapure water system which delivers a flow rate of one litre per minute and is specially designed for ultrapure water requirements of fewer than ten litres per day. At just 28 centimeters (11 inches) wide, it easily integrates into nearly any lab environment.
Users can choose between two arium models: the standard version of arium® mini is independent of a permanently installed water tap. Water is supplied to this system via the integrated bag, which is filled by a built-in pump. In the process, pretreated water is pumped into the bag automatically and is thus used as feed water for the production of ultrapure water.
The arium mini Plus, can be directly connected to a feed water tap. In this system, feed water is treated first by a pretreatment cartridge, which consists of a combination of activated carbon and a reverse osmosis module, and is safely stored intermediately in the integrated bag of the system. Final production of ultrapure water then takes place using a specially developed arium® Scientific purification cartridge.
For analytical and especially critical applications, such as HPLC, arium mini also can be optionally ordered in a version equipped with an integrated UV lamp (185/254 nm). This ensures reliable production of ultrapure water that is virtually free of organic components.
Feed water needed to produce ultrapure water is supplied via the 5-litre bag integrated on the side of the system. Originally developed for the pharmaceutical industry, the bag is optimal for storing purified water.
Closed bagtank system prevents secondary contamination while ensuring consistent long-term water quality.
Uncomplicated exchange of the bag facilitates upkeep of the system and reduces maintenance.
Bagtank requires no hazardous cleaning chemicals.
High-resolution, touch-activated colour display with easy-to-understand icons.
Favorites function automatically stores the volume of ultrapure water last dispensed, preventing errors during repeated dispensing of identical volumes, and helping to increase the reliability and efficiency of lab work procedures.
