Ultra Pure Water

Recommended Posts

GSS Window Cleaning

I cleaned windows today on 25ppm and checked it at the end of the day and it was on 44ppm I went back and checked all my work and they all looked fine.

I think this might be nuclear resin ?.. not sure ,the way ionics do it is to re circulate the pure water from the tank back through the resin for a couple of hours or so , Ime guessing this is a similar system

It's hard to make much sense of the website as it's been stuffed with as many buzzwords as possible.

"The NGMB tank filter housing is constructed from injection-moulded, thermally welded polypropylene"

 

Translation: It's made of plastic

I have a customer who is using nuclear grade from us and he is finding better cleaning results.

 

This is not for everyone as a lot will not use pure water in it's current form, going above 000 ppm.

 

Not sure about his quote " speeds up cleaning time up to 25%"

 

It does make cleaning easier on soiled windows as will break down the dirt easier. 

 

The  UDFC membrane filter prior to the resin I understand the logic but think it's overkill when used for window cleaning.

What's the difference between nuclear grade and regular resin

I presume this is the same as the parts per billion we heard about before?

Yes the ionics systems that are ppb are parts per million to get to the ppb it’s just recirculated through nuclear grade resin for a couple of hours , it’s easy to upgrade your system yourself , but I couldn’t be bothers with it personally.

I’m waiting for the parts per trillion 😇

Then accidentally spill some degreaser in the tank lol 😂😱😱

PPM is the measurement we use but some elements will not be measured.

 

These are measured in microsiemans which is a lower reading than 000 ppm.

 

Contact lens manufacturers will use 0.03 microsiemans water. It’s processed through high grade softening resin then R/O then mixed bed then nuclear mixed bed.

 

The water has to ultra pure now if they were to use some window cleaners method then there would be a lot of hazy contact lenses. 😂

We've got 3 vans on PPB water and 2 on PPM water. Nobody here can tell the difference.

My understanding is that the meter needed to measure ppb costs around 4 k or so I was told by ionics when Ruben was trying to sell me one of there systems

it's not the expensive but its costly. We just borrow one from whom we got the system and resin from.

This is the perfect answer. We use a very basic process to clean windows which is done in a non dust free environment by operators who aren't specialists (rocket scientists.) We would never be able to tell the difference between one and the other when cleaning; well I wouldn't be able to anyway. 

 

Lets go the other way. If I cleaned our windows with tap water at 130ppm and the same windows with pure water at 0ppm, the only evidence of the first clean would be after the windows had dried. I wouldn't be able to identify the water used during the cleaning process.
