DUBUQUE, Iowa (April 1, 2013) – LabStrong Corporation and Fi-Streem International are adding to the current laboratory water stills offerings in North America. The new LabStrong Fi-Streem 2S Stills produce four liters of product water per hour and are available in two models (A74420LS and A74428LS). The stills consistently produce high quality ASTM Type II water and remove inorganic ions, dissolved gasses, organics, particles, bacteria, pyrogens and nucleases from water. The dependable, easy to use stills are ideal for individuals with a limited budget who need distilled water.
“LabStrong has brought on the new 2S four liter per hour systems in response to requests for an economical, easy to use and reliable water still,” according to Mark Lockwood, president of LabStrong. He went on to say, “The new products are a natural addition to the economy class of LabStrong Fi-Streem 2S Stills because they give users more product water capacity options without compromising quality.”
The LabStrong Fi-Streem 2S Stills are straightforward to operate and feature easy-rocker switch controls. Included with the still is a float switch, which allows for 24-hour automatic operation of the still when connected to the LabStrong 8 Liter Carboy (A1052LS) or 20 Liter Carboy (B00123). This convenient feature allows users to always have water readily available. The high quality stills feature a patented vapor trap that eliminates carry-over of contaminants in the vapor-borne water droplets. The non-leaching glass components of the still ensure high purity water.
Unlike reverse osmosis and deionization water systems that can degrade within days when turned off, the reliable stills can be turned off for extended periods of time without having to replace costly consumables such as filters, membranes, cartridges, or pumps. This feature makes these stills ideal for “green” schools or companies that may want to turn water systems off for weeks at a time.
LabStrong Fi-Streem 2S Stills can easily be installed by one person. The stills are equipped with everything necessary to install and startup the system, including a wall mounting bracket. The space-saving design of the still saves valuable wall and benchtop space. For convenience, the stills are designed with dual feed capabilities for tap or pretreated feedwater. Pretreatment kits, which help to decrease the cleaning of the still by minimizing scale build up, are available for the stills.
The stills are equipped with numerous safety features. They have an over temperature protection device, which offers protection against low water conditions while extending the life of heating elements. The totally enclosed design of the still assures users safety from breakage and hot surfaces. The base of the still is designed to contain accidental leaks within the still.
