Getting water down to none conductive and 0 TDS / 0 us !
Why? .... Because we can if we try
I have been working with a mate and after lots of help we have been playing getting water down to 0 TDS / 0us in my home factory. Its been a bit of a struggle but were getting there.
Now i have 3 different types of TDS meter's but the one in the shoots is the most accurate and was calibrated with 3 different levels of TDS liquids from 1000 TDS to 550 TDS and last but not least 150 TDS. We also calibrated the other two meter's as well but this one seems to be the best of them all for readings.
So any way first we start off with the TDS Reading of the tap water as you can see its reading at 166 TDS which to be honest as tap water goes is not that bad in comparison to a friend’s house which we read at 650 TDS.
Now we ran 100 Ltrs of water though our system which took about 2 hours and we got the TDS down to 5.1 which is the same as most good branded DI water and it is what is used in most liquids for PCs. However it still isn’t good enough for me.
So after running another 250 Ltrs though the system we got the TDS down to 2.3 TDS which means were getting closer to the target
Now after loads of messing and increasing the Pressure to the system to the max we could go at the time of 60 PSI and another 500 Ltrs of water we finally hit our target..
OTDS and 0uS – real none conductive water... (well till dust gets to it any way
However this is fluctuating between 0.00 and 0.03 which to me isn’t good enough as i want constant 0 uS and 0 TDS. So i’ve just order a new pump which should bring the pressure up in our system to maximum of 160PSI and Hopefully give us a constant 0 TDS supply.
Ill post up results once its come.
Btw way the system im using first starts off with A distiller then thought a reverse osmosis then though a Di system. I will be all so getting a new UV system to throw in there as well later on down the line just to cover all aspects of purifying the liquids down ... I love messing with this stuff haha.
