Use of the latest constructiontechnologies and materials helps us findinnovative solutions in a range of applicationsfrom reagent weighing through to proteinpurification.In response to the demand from laboratoriesfor highly purified reagent grade water atpoint of use, we’ve recently added to ourrange of laboratory instruments: arium ®laboratory water systems. Designed andengineered to meet and exceed currentstandards [ASTM, NCCLS & ISO], an innovativerange of models enables even the mostexacting laboratory requirements to be met.Within this brochure, you will find anoverview of the arium ® product range;on request we will be happy to send detailedtechnical specifications and pricing.
Laboratory reagent grade waterRequirements, quality and standardsSimply stated, reagent grade water can bedefined as water that will not interfere withthe laboratory application, method ortechnique being performed. Regulatory orstandards organizations, such as ASTM, definereagent grade water by type or class basedon published specifications. In turn, moststandardized laboratory methods requirea reagent water type or class to ensure consistentand comparable reporting. In reality,purified water for the laboratory is difficultto define in general or specific type terms.Therefore, it may be best to use reagent waterthat exceeds the most stringent publishedstandards.StandardsThere are a number of standards or regulatoryagencies that define laboratory reagent gradewater based on published specifications. Themore familiar agencies consist of theAmerican Society for Testing and Materials(ASTM), National Committee for ClinicalLaboratory Standards (NCCLS), InternationalOrganization for Standardization (ISO) andothers.Depending on the agency, up to fourdifferent types or classes of reagent watermay be specified. Each type or class ofreagent water is defined by measurablechemical or physical limits. To date, ASTM hasthe most stringent specifications or limits forType 1 reagent water.Where applicable, the ASTM water types canbe further classified for biologic contentunder Type A, B, or C designations. Type Arequires the lowest bacteria and endotoxinlevels. Therefore, the Type 1, Type A standardsrepresent the highest quality specificationfor reagent water defined by ASTM .The intent of any reagent water standard isto ensure that the purified water will notinterfere with the laboratory method to beutilized. This means that the reagent waterused must not contain material that couldhave a positive or negative effect on theresults of a laboratory procedure. So ingeneral terms, reagent water can be definedas purified water that will not interfere withthe laboratory application, method or techniquebeing performed. Standard methodsand materials ensure that different laboratoriesperform the same test method utilizingthe same standards so results can be validlycompared. One could then argue that ASTMType 1, Type A reagent water meets orexceeds all other reagent water standardsand should be universally applied. SpecifyingType 1 water as the standard for all laboratorymethods would seem to ensure the leastchance of method interference.
Water quality and measurementThe ASTM Type 1 reagent water standardspecifies a minimum electrical resistance of18.0 megohms + cm or the reciprocal maximumelectrical conductivity of 0.056 microsiemens/cm.Because the resistivity orconductivity of water will change withtemperature, the measurements are correctedto 25°C. These are standardized measurementsused to measure the ability of thewater to resist or conduct an electric current.Resistance or conductance measurements canalso be used to extrapolate the amount oftotal dissolved solids (TDS) in water .The theoretical value for purified water freeof dissolved solids is 18.2 (18.18 rounded)megohms + cm or 0.055 microsiemens/cmat 25°C. Following the ASTM minimum,18.0-megohm + cm resistivity would indicatethat impurities are present in the water. Thiswould also indicate that the ion exchangeresins used to produce the high-quality waterare beginning to exhaust. The differencebetween 18.2-megohm and 18.0-megohmwater may only be fractions of a µg/l.However, the difference may be enough tocause interference with some laboratorymethods. Add 100.0 µg/l total organic carbon(TOC) to the specification and the chance formethod interference increases.InterferenceModern laboratory analytical instrumentshave extremely low detection levels. Atomicabsorption spectroscopy (AAS), inductivelycoupled plasma mass spectrometers (ICP|MS)and chromatography instruments canroutinely operate in the parts per billion andparts per trillion ranges in the proper environment.This requires the purest reagents, anuncontaminated work environment andmeticulous quality control procedures.Biotechnology and research facilities alsorequire special procedures to ensure qualitywork. Because of this, the reagent water usedfor these techniques must exceed the strictestpurity specifications to ensure the bestresults. The 18.0-megohm + cm resistivity and100.0 µg/l TOC specifications, as well asmost of the other Type 1 water standards,may not be good enough or broad enoughto encompass the requirements of the latestlaboratory methods. With new or improvedlab instruments and techniques at the forefront,the quality of reagent water becomeseven more important. Fortunately, modernlaboratory reagent grade water systems canproduce purified water that exceeds thecurrent published standards.References and footnotes Standard Specifications for ReagentWater, D1193-99 Vol. 11.01, page 104,Annual Book of ASTM Standards 2000.

Regardless of which water standard you need,arium ® 611 Tower delivers!The incorporation of a reverse osmosis (RO)system and an ultrapure water system intoa single stand-alone tower providesnumerous benefits to the busy laboratory.Capable of delivering both RO and ultrapure(Type 1) water on demand, the unique designof the tower only requires inlet connectionsto power and a suitable water source andconnection of discharge tubes to a drain.No additional fittings or connections arerequired.Ergonomically designed to save bench space,this dedicated workstation is able to supplythe needs of a busy laboratory with bothreagent grade and purified water in onesingle system.By positioning the heaviest part of the system(RO water tank) at the lowest point maximum,stability is achieved even under themost severe conditions.Designed with the laboratory technicianin mind, all user parts are readily accessiblemaking routine maintenance and cartridgechanges effortless.As illustrated on the following pages, theindividual components of the tower maybe purchased separately to accommodatespecific requirements.
Laboratory Water Systemsarium ® 61315Reverse Osmosis SystemDesigned to meet the demands of today’slaboratories for RO treated water.With production volumes of up to 15 l/hper hour, 99% rejection of monovalentand polyvalent ions, bacteria and viruses,automated membrane back-flushing, andwith its compact design, the arium ® 61315is the ideal choice for general laboratoryapplications, such as dish-washing water,humidifiers and as a pretreatment stepprior to ultrapure laboratory water systems.Low-energy, high-output and thin-filmcomposite membranes dramatically reducethe volume of water rejected to waste andincrease the % of recovery.Energy consumption is reduced by theincorporation of a uniquely designed ROmodule housing, which minimizes the needfor solenoid valves to regulate and controlpermeate flow.A single solenoid valve controls an automaticflush-fill cycle, which maintains the volumeof the pressure tank while at the same timerinsing the RO modules, thereby reducingionic concentration at the RO membranesurface. This not only conserves power, italso reduces maintenance and increases thereliability of the system.Water storage is simplified by the use ofa closed pressure tank. This significantlyreduces the costs of maintenance due toairborne contamination, while reducinggas uptake by product water in storage.A pressurized storage tank provides moreflexibility as to its location, without theneed for an expensive distribution pumpto deliver the water to a point of use.SpecificationsUnit DimensionsWidth: 43 cm (16.85”)Height: 48 cm (19”)Depth: 33.4 cm (13.15”)System Weight14 kg (31 lbs)Operation Weight20 kg (44 lbs)Electrical Power Requirements100-240 V AC 50-60 Hz single phaseInlet Feed Water RequirementsPotable tap water feed only (feed waterto meet drinking water standards of theU.S. EPA, European Union or Japan)Minimum inlet pressure: 1 bar|15 psiMaximum inlet pressure: 6.8 bar|100 psiTemperature:5°C-28°C(41°F–82.4°F)TDS (max ppm CaCO 3 ): 800Silt density index: < 5%Free chlorine:0.1 ppmTurbidity:< 1 NTUIron (total as Fe): < 0.1 ppmAmbient Temperature & HumidityOperation:Storage:5°C-28°C(41°F–82.4°F)80% relativehumidity5°C-45°C(41°F–113°F)80% relativehumidity
