Distillation process for Waterwise water distillers (Example: Waterwise 4000)
- Ordinary tap water is heated to 212° F (100° C) killing microbes such as bacteria, cysts and viruses that may be present.
- Steam rises, leaving behind dead microbes, dissolved solids, salts, heavy metals and other substances.
- Some low-boiling light gases (VOCs) are discharged through the gaseous vent.
- Steam vapour is condensed.
- Purified/distilled water then percolates through an organic, coconut-shell carbon filter, enhancing quality by aeration, degasification and adsorption of VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
- The steam distilled water is then collected in the collector bottle (not shown), ready to enjoy.
Waterwise water distillers are premium water distillers ensuring consistent pure clean distilled water to enhance your health in addition to other benefits.
Waterwise distillers remove VOCs
Volatile organic compounds that may be present in your tap water normally boil off and vaporize during the warm-up cycle and are vented into the air (see step 3 of distillation process). If any VOCs carry over with the distillate, they can be effectively removed with the carbon post filter (see step 5). Carbon enhances taste and purity by adsorption, aeration and degasification.
All Waterwise water distillers have coconut shell carbon, post filtration to effectively remove VOCs. Another option to consider would be a direct line hookup, fully automatic Waterwise 7000 distiller with an in-line carbon prefilter.
· Carbon filtration before distillation is highly recommended if there are high concentrations of known (or suspected) VOCs where you will be operating your distiller.
