What is Type 3 Laboratory Water?

Type 3 laboratory water is purified water which is suitable for non-critical lab applications such as rinsing glassware, filling autoclaves, water baths and disinfector feed. It's also used in environmental chambers and plant growth rooms as well as being used as feed water to Type 1 ultrapure laboratory water systems. Sometimes called primary-grade pure water, Type 3 laboratory water has up to around 99% of contaminants removed.

Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water Purification

Reverse osmosis is very effective at removing almost all forms of contamination. Typically more than 95% of ionic and organic contamination is removed using specialised, semi-permeable membranes. Water is fed, under pressure, to the membrane, some of which passes through (the permeate) leaving behind the concentrate, which contains the majority of the impurities.

Selecting Your Laboratory Water System

When considering which water purification system is right for your laboratory it's important to determine the levels of water purity needed for your experiments and applications. Once you know which water type or types you need there are a number of additional factors to consider including:

  • How much pure water is needed (daily)?
  • What will be the peak demand for pure water?
  • Does your lab require tracking and validation of water quality?
  • Is the system to be used for one specific application or shared?
  • Do you require any additional equipment such as storage or dispensing?"
