Tuttnauer® PUREWISE™ 9000 Benchtop Steam Water Distiller
The Tuttnauer® PUREWISE™ Model 9000 Benchtop Steam Water Distiller operates by heating water to 212°F (100°C), killing any bacteria, cysts, and/or viruses present, and converting it to steam. As the steam rises it leaves behind any solids, salts, heavy metals, etc. and the low-boiling, light gases are discharged through the gaseous vent. The steam is then cooled in the rust-proof stainless steel condenser, where it liquifies into high quality, pure water. To further enhance water quality, the distilled water passes through a coconut shell carbon filter to extract any volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and is finally deposited in the 3.8-Liter GE Lexan® polycarbonate collection/storage container.
