Project: Y-12 National Security Complex
Location: Oak Ridge, TN
Type: Industry

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)
