❶ Deionized Water
Deionized water is water that has had its ions removed, thus rendering it with no charge. To create deionized water, standard water must be exposed to electrically-charged resins, which in turn, bind to added salts, and thus remove all ions from the water. It’s most common uses include renal dialysis make-up, medium pressure boiler feeds, and car battery top-ups.
❷ Purified Water
Purified water is water that has been mechanically-filtered of its contaminants and impurities, such as hard mineral deposits, chemicals, and organic matter. Although mostly used as a raw material, ingredient, and solvent in processing, additional common applications for purified water include cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and chemical manufacturing.
❸ Apyrogenic Water
Apyrogenic water is an ultrapure dialysate or ultrapure water for sterility. The most common applications for apyrogenic water include vial cleansing, tissue cultures, water for injections, and similar medical-related needs.
❹ High Purity Water
