Our Waterguide for water treatment
Technical knowledge and expertise
From our engineers
We have compiled explanations and definitions of the most important terms in water treatment. In our Waterguide, we have divided these explanations into categories; you can then use these to narrow down topics. Or simply use the technical term search and you will find what you are looking for. If you still have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!
Calcium is an alkaline earth metal (symbol Ca, atomic number 20, atomic mass 40 g/mol). It is one of the most common elements in the Earth's crust and is a major constituent of water in terms of quantity. Calcium is also an essential element for almost all living creatures.
Conventional systems use branch lines to supply water to the dialysis machine. When the dialysis machine is not in use, the water in these dead-end branches remains stagnant at room temperature. The risk of germ multiplication increases with the time the system is not in use.
Herco Wassertechnik GmbH media supply panels for single dialysis stations set themselves apart thanks to elegantly designed, state-of-the-art components in the colour of your choice and a ready-wired electrical supply for each bed.
Herco Wassertechnik GmbH media supply panels for double dialysis stations set themselves apart thanks to elegantly designed, state-of-the-art components in the colour of your choice and a ready-wired electrical supply for two beds.
In addition to undissolved impurities (particles), most water contains varying concentrations of dissolved ions. Metals and hydrogen are present as cations (positive charge), acid residues and hydroxyl ions as anions (negative charge).
You can only maintain a consistently high water quality if you regularly disinfect the entire water circuit, including the reverse osmosis unit.
An environmentally friendly and easy-to-use method is to expose water to ultraviolet light (UVC). The UV exposure is approved according to the German Drinking Water Ordinance (Section 11, Part II on disinfection procedures) – it reliably kills bacteria and viruses.
