Electro-Deionization Skids - EDI Series

The Electro-Deionization process is the latest technology to achieve ultrapure water.  EDI uses ion exchange resins in the presence of a DC voltage potential to remove cation and anion contaminants from the feed water supply.  Ion selective membranes are then used within the modules to continuously remove these contaminants and carry them out in a small concentrate stream.  The voltage applied across the cell allows for the electrochemical "splitting" of water into hydrogen (H+) and hydroxide (OH-) ions within the ion exchange resins resulting in constant regeneration without the addition of chemicals, wastewater neutralization/disposal, and shutdown time.  This results in a major advantage over the operation of traditional, regenerable Mixed-Bed Deionization and Service Exchange DI Systems.
