Project: Y-12 National Security Complex
Location: Oak Ridge, TN
Started-up and commissioned new ultra-pure deionized water production facility.
Plant was constructed for the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to produce ultra-pure water for use by various Y-12 plant processes.
The facility processes "city water" feedstock. Four sequential processes (filtration, ion exchange, reverse osmosis, and electro-deionization) produce state-of-the-art, ultra-pure water very near the theoretical limits of water itself. (> 12 MΩ/cm resistivity / < .08 µS/cm conductivity)
