Water Purification

Water Purification

The analytical laboratory of Centrum výzkumu Řež offers laboratory services for water purification and preparation of pure and ultrapure water by means of ion exchange and membrane technologies. Our laboratory is able to provide comprehensive methods for characterisation and testing of ion exchange resins such as:

  • determination of IEC (Ion exchange capacity), TVC (Total wet volume capacity), DWC (Dry weight capacity), SSC (Salt splitting capacity) and WC (Weak capacity)
  • evaluation of laboratory results by means of image analysis
  • laboratory services for TOC and Cl- determination
  • testing of untraditional sorption materials (activated carbon, selective ion exchange sorbents) including consultation with academic experts (ICT Prague, IMC AS Prague, MU Brno, etc.).

Water Purification

Recently CVR has started using and experimentally testing very progressive membrane technologies such as reverse osmosis and electrodeionisation. These methods have great potential in all industries using water either for cooling or for other purposes.
