Aggressive Ultrapure Water

ultrapure water

Did you know not all water is the same? This means not all water should be treated the same and certain precautions should be taken when working with water that impacts the structural integrity of the surfaces it comes in contact with. For example, hot water is more corrosive than cold water. It’s temperature and kinetic energy is what makes it capable of wearing away at materials, while it takes cold water much longer to erode surfaces.

Reverse osmosis deionized water, which is used with our HD and D model RODI water heaters, is ultrapure. So, when heated, it is even more corrosive than regular hot water because of its high level of resistivity and its kinetic energy. Certain metals and materials are better able to resist corrosion compared to other types. Read more about hot ultrapure water, how different materials interact with the water, and how our Hubbell water heaters defy corrosion in our white paper ‘Which RO/DI Water Heater is Right for Your Application?’
