Distilled Water Treatment
Industrial distillation technologies that produce highly purified water.
Distillation uses a heat source to vaporise water and separate pure water molecules from contaminants with a higher boiling point.
- Water is heated until it boils and begins to evaporate
- The water temperature is then kept at a constant
- The stable temperature ensures continued water vaporisation, but prevents drinking water contaminants with a higher boiling point from evaporating
- The evaporated water is then collected and sent through a tube system to another container
- Finally, removed from the heat source, the steam condenses back into its original liquid form
Contaminants that have a higher boiling point than water stay in the original container. This process removes most minerals, bacteria and viruses, and any chemicals that have a higher boiling point than water from the water.
