Cyclon: An Integrated Water Purification System
The Cyclon is available in 4 or 8 l.hr -¹ single distilled or 4 l.hr -¹ double distilled formats and as a complete water purification system with matching pre-deioniser and distillate reservoir. To eliminate the need for routine cleaning in hard water areas, the Stills are also able to be adapted to accept pre-treated water.
All systems can be wall or bench mounted while tap feed models can easily be upgraded to use pre-treated water.
The ‘cyclonic’ vapour trap eliminates all carry over while the advanced borosilicate glassware design removes the risk of foaming and improves purity levels. The distillate leaves the condenser at the optimum temperature to guarantee product quality. Additionally quartz sheathed heating elements ensure distillate purity is not compromised.
For increased purity the double (Bi-) distiller is particularly welcome in life science applications where the highest grade distillate is required. Comprising two identical sets of glassware and heaters the first distillation is fed to the second boiler for further distillation thus eliminating any possible carry over of impurities. The 4BD model produces 4 litres per hour double distilled water.
Safety in Operation
The thermistor protects the Still against interruptions in the water supply by controlling heater operation. Additional protection is provided by a thermal cut-out fuse to prevent overheating.
Operator protection is assured through totally enclosed glassware and a built-in spillage tray.
Reliability and Ease of Use
Combined with the microprocessor, the thermistor sensor provides precise control of the Still and simplifies operation and cleaning procedures.
A vertical boiler configuration minimises stress on the durable silica sheathed heating elements. Along with an auto-drain function this design also helps to reduce the build-up of scale.
The Cyclon is supplied with an electronic float switch which will shut off the Still automatically when the storage reservoir is full enabling safe, unattended operation.
The flow of cooling water is automatically controlled to minimise water usage.
Cyclon Pre-treated Feed Option
Feeding the Still with pre-treated water can eliminate the need for descaling of the Still’s boiler in hard tap water areas.
The Stills can be fed from the matching Cyclon Deioniser which is specially designed to provide quality pre-treated water. The deioniser is electronically controlled by the Still’s microprocessor to ensure optimum use is made of the deioniser’s ion exchange capacity.
Alternatively, the Cyclon can be used with pre-treated water from the user’s own source. Suitable quality water includes reverse osmosis, deionised or purified water from a central piped supply.
Descaling is simplified by an automated cleaning facility requiring no dismantling of glassware. The highly efficient process requires little operator time. The microprocessor and thermistor controlled operation incorporates a dual flush program to ensure the Still is ready to return to normal service on completion.
To ensure the highest purity levels are maintained, the reservoir features a polyethylene liner, vent filter and a cleaning access port. The electronic float switch shuts off the Still on a full reservoir.
All models are wall or bench mountable and are supplied with all necessary connection hoses.
