In the video above, the reporter discusses the deionized water system, highlighting how it works and their cost-effectiveness. He explains that these systems remove minerals from water using anion and cation resin, resulting in demineralized water that’s essentially pure. He emphasizes that for those using only a few gallons daily, DI cartridges suffice, costing around 25 to 50 cents per gallon.
However, for larger-scale operations like manufacturing or LaserJet cutting, employing reverse osmosis as the primary demineralization method significantly reduces DI water costs.
He offers a practical example of a factory that switched from relying solely on DI systems to incorporating a reverse osmosis system ahead of the DI setup. Initially spending $78,000 yearly on DI tank replacements, the introduction of a $30,000 reverse osmosis system slashed their annual DI costs to under $6,000. This change led to substantial savings in the first year, doubling what they were spending previously and continuing to yield significant savings thereafter.
The reporter the importance of pairing reverse osmosis with DI, asserting that the majority of minerals should be removed by the former to render the latter’s operation much more cost-efficient. These advancements contribute to substantial cost savings, making the incorporation of reverse osmosis financially feasible for businesses using DI methods. These advancements contribute to substantial cost savings, making the incorporation worthwhile.
