The Paris Institute of Earth Physics Uses Merck Millipore Water Purification Systems

Volcanic samples, often collected from active volcanoes, are analysed in the Paris Institute of Earth Physic’s Volcanic Systems Department. Pure and ultrapure water, produced by Milli-Q® Integral systems, is critical to this analysis.

The department requires around 5 litres of ultrapure water per day for the hydropyrolysis, ion chromatography and ICP-MS (inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry) laboratories as well as around 30 litres of pure water in order to clean rocks and glassware.

Water purity cannot be in doubt, otherwise crucial measurements such as sample volumes and boron and halogen levels will be in error. In order to achieve this the department has a Merck Millipore’s Q-POD ultrapure water dispenser and an E-POD dispenser, connected to the underbench Milli-Q® systems. Their convenient volumetric dispensers save time and help improve accuracy.
