Atlas High Purity Solutions summarizes the design and installation of a high purity water system feeding central sterile applications at a premier Boston healthcare facility.
Challenge: A top-tier healthcare facility in Boston, MA was seeking a high purity water partner to provide a system to meet the needs of new and existing central sterile equipment. A 50 GPM recirculating loop was designed with the following key criteria silica < 0.5 mg/l, Resistivity > 0.5 megohms, Bacteria < 500 CFU/ml. The system had to be designed for zero-down time during service (excluding loop disinfections). Space was very limited which restricted skid-built options for systems.
Solution: Atlas High Purity Solutions and Pure Flow designed a high purity water system all major equipment items arranged in duplex parallel configurations to allow for zero-downtime. Equipment items included the following:
Cartridge-based pretreatment (duplex for continuous operation during service)
Carbon tanks for chlorine removal (duplex)
Softeners for hardness reduction (duplex)
Duplex alternating RO systems - GE/ Suez E4 – (RO’s alternate filling the tank and run parallel in emergency low level scenarios)
Storage tank with duplex Grundfos 50 GPM distribution pumps
