Lab Water Purification Systems

The arium® product family from Sartorius, comprises a range of cutting-edge lab water purication systems, designed to produce the highest water quality across a range of lab applications. The arium® bagtank system from Sartorius ensures that the pure water is securely protected from secondary contamination within the bag, by preventing the ingression of airbourne impurities, including CO2, particulate and bacteria.

Choose from:

  • Type 1 Water Systems - The arium® pro and comfort series offer accurate measurement of total organic carbon (TOC) so you can completely rely on the purity of this water for reproducible results.
  • Type 2 Water Systems - The arium® advance EDI saves valuable resources such as the intelligent iJust technology which controls cleaning cycles and minimizes the need for feed water.
  • Type 3 Water Systems - arium® advance RO systems are ideal for routine lab applications, such as supplying feed water to lab instruments like pure water systems, autoclaves, glassware washers, humidifiers and water baths.
  • Combined Lab Water Systems - The arium® comfort systems feature the most advanced purification technologies, these systems deliver both ASTM Type I and Type III water all in one unit, or both ASTM Type I and Type II, depending on the version you select.
