Watertown, MA, Dec. 9, 2003 -- Ionics, Inc., a specialist in the treatment and analysis of water and wastewater, showcased its range of membrane technologies at POWER-GEN in Las Vegas. Featured will be Ionics' Electrodeionization (EDI) technology, which provides high capacity boiler feed water, making it an ideal solution for power applications.
EDI is a continuous process for producing high-purity water using ion-exchange membranes, resins and electricity. Direct current (DC) is the driving force for removing ionized and ionizable species from the feed stream, while continuously regenerating the resin pack.
EDI, in combination with reverse osmosis as pretreatment, strips away more than 99.9% of feedwater ions, significantly outperforming both double-pass RO and straight deionization (DI). With lower chemical, energy and labor costs, Ionics' state-of-the-art EDI technology is helping to meet ultrapure water needs at power plants throughout the world.
Additionally, with Ionics' outsourcing approach, clients do not have to invest their technical resources and capital in water operations.
