Elga Composite Vent Filters

ELGA water reservoirs provide a clean and protected environment for storing purified water. The major potential source of contamination is from air drawn into the reservoir when water is used. To minimize this problem, the reservoir has a tightly fitting screw cap and a non-return valve in the overflow tube so that the air entering the reservoir must pass through the Composite Vent Filter.

Benefits and features

  • A combination of purification media for maintaining peak water quality:
    • Activated carbon to remove volatile organic compounds
    • An adsorbent to remove gaseous carbon dioxide from the air
    • A filter to prevent passage of bacteria into the reservoir
  • Back-flow safety mechanism - automatically prevents water back-flow through the filter in the event of the reservoir overfilling

Elga Docking Vessels DV25 & DV35

ELGA’s unique Docking Vessels are the next generation of pure water reservoirs for the laboratory. They are specifically designed to accommodate the PURELAB Option, PURELAB Prima and MEDICA water purification systems. The concept behind them is remarkably simple – dock the water purification system on top of the L-shaped vessel and you eliminate the need for a separate reservoir. This gains you valuable extra space on the benchtop, looks far more aesthetic and provides a host of other benefits.

There are two Docking Vessels in the range. The DV25 stores 25 litres of pure water, whilst the DV35 stores 35 litres. The chart below provides a quick reference to help you choose the appropriate model.

Features and benefits

 

  • Plug-and-play connections make installation and maintenance very simple, saving valuable time and eliminating connection mistakes
  • The Docking Vessel is electronically wired to the water purifier to provide status information via the GRID (Graphically Represented Intuitive Display) User Interface; this will monitor the water level in the reservoir and display the data graphically and as a percentage
  • Audible and visual alarms can be set if the water level falls below a certain level, and the GRID User Interface will warn users in the unlikely event of the electrical connection being lost
  • The Docking Vessels incorporate a through-flow design and are manufactured using all the very latest techniques and materials to maintain the quality of the purified water:
    • Flow of water ensures no static areas
    • Internal surfaces are very smooth with no crevices to harbor bacteria
    • Inert polyethylene construction minimizes leachables to avoid recontamination of the product water
    • Sloping self-draining base provides more complete sanitization and quicker rinse-out time
