Atlas Watersystems, Inc. uses a variety of water treatment and separation technologies to solve the various water quality problems common to New England. Different contaminants and combinations of impurities demand unique solutions to effectively purify the water, which is why we assess the water quality issue(s) and then custom design and build a water purification system to meet all of your demands.
Reverse osmosis is one of the most common and effective means of purifying water for drinking. In fact, it is commonly used by most major bottled water companies to purify water from their sources before bottling. A reverse osmosis system will remove the majority of common impurities, making water look and taste better. Source water is forced against a synthetic membrane filled with microscopic holes that only water can pass through. Impurities are trapped on one side of the membrane and are transported away to drain, while the purified water moves through it and into a storage tank. Reverse Osmosis was originally invented for use in desalinating sea water and is still used for this purpose today. Reverse Osmosis systems are used throughout the world to support the fresh water needs of various cities. The systems installed for commercial and residential use are scaled down versions of these systems.
Hard water is water that contains a high level of calcium and magnesium. By using a process called ion exchange, a water softener exchanges the calcium and magnesium ions with a small amount of sodium ions. As the hard water enters the water softener, it runs over the softeners resin beads where the calcium and magnesium ions (that make the water hard) are replaced with sodium ions, effectively “softening” the water. Water softeners are often used in conjunction with reverse osmosis systems for a higher level of purity for drinking water .

The standards and demands for high purity water are much stricter than those for typical drinking water. High purity systems are more customized, reflecting amount of water needed, quality level required and application of the purified water. For these reasons, we recommend calling Atlas at (800)215-9966 to get a better understanding of the technology available for high purity and special application use. The information below provides a very brief representation of what we can do.
One of the major factors in deciding what technology to use in a high purity system is the level of purity required. We have the capabilities and technologies to meet NCCLS, USP and USP-WFI water quality standards.
A RODI system removes impurities through reverse osmosis, then de-ionizes the water for high purity use.
A detailed plan is drafted for a custom water filtration system, which must be followed exactly when designing and building the system. Installation qualification varies for GMP-compliant validated systems; we install IQ, OQ and PQ systems.
USGBE systems use energy more efficiently by recycling and reusing waste water.
