Elga Process Water has revealed how its service de-ionisation (SDI) is playing a key role in the manufacture of ultra-high vacuum (UHV) components at MKS Instruments.

MKS Instruments’s resources include the CNC machinery and Cadcam systems.

Prior to assembly all components are cleaned by a fully automated aqueous cleaning plant.

MKS Instruments’s move from traditional solvent-based cleaning methods to an aqueous-based system has been driven by European Union Directives, which require safer and more environmentally friendly processes.

MKS Instruments worked in conjunction with Elga Process Water to upgrade the quality of its deionised water and its cleaning potential.

Like many other companies faced with the need to provide deionised water, MKS opted for service exchange cylinders.

Elga Process Water supplies the company with a cylinder containing mixed-bed ion exchange resins.

The cylinder is connected to a closed-loop system to produce high-purity deionised water.

When the resins are exhausted, Elga Process Water delivers a replacement cylinder and returns the exhausted one to its regeneration station.

Each cylinder is fully traceable, which is essential to many of Elga Process Water’s customers, such as pharmaceutical manufacturers, food producers and scientific research establishments.
