Millipore Milli-Q™ Advantage A10 Water Purification System
The Milli-Q™ production unit is a compact system that can be placed either on the bench, under the bench or on a wall–wherever it best suits you. The Q-POD (Quality-Point-of-Delivery) unit provides final polishing at the point-of-use, delivering ultrapure water adapted to specific needs. The Q-POD’s interface simplifies operation and displays essential data for complete user reassurance. Up to three Q-PODs can be used with each production unit at different locations within the same laboratory. Both the production unit and the Q-POD are required to make a complete system.
How the system works: The most reliable ultrapure water quality depends on building an optimized purification sequence.
1. Pure water, ideally from an Elix purification system, enters the Q-Gard pretreatment pack which is chosen based on the feedwater source.
2. Pretreated water then passes into a double wavelength UV lamp, which ensures organic molecule oxidation and bacteria destruction.
3. Next, the Quantum polishing cartridge removes ionic and organic contaminants below trace levels to match the water quality required for the lab application.
4. Finally, the ultrapure water produced by the system recirculates through a loop up to the Q-POD unit, where a unique range of final purifiers ensure the final purification step for all applications.
Required Accessories: Pure water source (Elix* system or equivalent, not included); purification packs and cartridges (sold separately). Both the Q-Gard and Quantum cartridges incorporate Millipore’s eSure technology, which enables full traceability.
