ELGA Process Water Provides the Right Quality for Nuclear Research

Company supplies a laboratory water system to Dalton Cumbrian Facility.

ELGA Process Water has supplied a laboratory water system to Dalton Cumbrian Facility, the nuclear research complex on the Westlakes Science & Technology Park in West Cumbria.

The facility forms part of the nuclear research facilities of The University of Manchester’s Dalton Nuclear Institute, and provides a suite of equipment for use by academia and industry from all over the world to collaborate in radiation science and nuclear plant decommissioning R&D.

Like all laboratories, the facility requires different water qualities for different uses: ultrapure water for analytical work and lower quality for general applications like media preparation, pH buffers and glassware washing.

ELGA Process Water supplied a system consisting of a PURELAB Option S7, which produces 7.5 l/h of ASTM Type II water from the mains supply.

This meets the demand of the dishwasher and provides a feed to a PURELAB Classic UV which upgrades it to the ASTM Type I quality that the laboratory needs for analytical work including ion chromatography, HPLC, GS and GS-MS.

“We have visiting researchers from all over the world”, says Laboratory Manager Ruth Edge. “The PURELAB Classic UV controller is very intuitive which makes it easy to use, and that means we don’t have to waste valuable research time showing visitors how to use it.”

The system is supported by an ELGA Process Water service contract to ensure that it always meets the rigorous water quality standards.

“We’re based in a rural area,” says Ruth,” but ELGA’s service team never let us down.”
