Cascade™ Type II Water Purification Systems

The Cascade™ is a deionization water purification system that is designed to provide an economical solution for labs needing a consistent and reliable source of ASTM Type II, pure water, with resistivity up to 15 meg Ω/cm. Its small foot-print makes it easy to place about anywhere in the lab.

Based on the unique requirements of an individual lab and its water source, various cartridge kits are available that feature a color-changing resin. The color-changing resin helps to indicate when it’s time to replace exhausted cartridges to ensure consistent water quality.

Pure water, also known as reagent grade Type II water, plays a key role in the various laboratory functions.  In the purification process impurities are removed, such as ions, organics, endotoxins, and bacteria. There are various purification methods to produce pure water from deionization, distillation, reverse osmosis (RO) or electrical ion exchange (EDI).  Type II water can be used as pretreat to an ultrapure, Type I, water system or for general laboratory functions:


  • pH solutions
  • Preparing buffers
  • Media preparation
  • Spectrophotometry
  • Electrophoresis
  • General chemistry
  • Washing glassware
  • Ion Chromatography (IC)
  • Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
  • Pretreat to Type I (ultrapure) water systems
  • Feed to autoclaves, water baths, and dishwashers
