The Next Generation of Ambient WFI / PW is Here!

Membrane-Based Reverse Osmosis Water for Injection (WFI) and Purified Water (PW) Systems

Ambient Water for Injection (WFI) & Purified Water (PW)

The TORRENT™ WFI Packaged Membrane WFI System and TORRENT™ PW Packaged RO/CEDI USP PW System generates compendial water that exceeds current USP, PhEur, and JP requirements for direct and contract manufacturing of critical pharmaceutical, biopharma, medical device, cosmetic, and personal care products. The fully integrated systems are a part of a complete Aqua-Chem water room solution that includes utility pretreatment, generation, and hot or ambient storage and distribution.

TORRENT™ continues Aqua-Chem’s legacy of innovation in WFI with a standardized triple-membrane barrier that is used to deliver water free of microbes and endotoxins at ambient temperatures and ensures maximum quality with minimal risk. All TORRENT™ water systems are engineered for performance and reliability using only non-proprietary, premium components including Mettler-Toledo instrumentation, Bürkert valves, and IonPure® CDI-LX™ modules. The novel form factor improves ease of use, includes fully-automated operation and hot water sanitization, and is fully factory tested for fast installation, start-up, and qualification.

Catalytic Carbon Exchange Filter

Catalytic carbon exchange filters deliver the effectiveness of activated carbon for removing chlorine and chloramines from feedwater without the costly downtime to service it. Our system is equipped with a spare carbon filter, so that when it's time to clean or replace your carbon you can simply swap out the tanks and keep production running. The offline tank can be cleaned and prepped to be used as a replacement for the next carbon change out.

Bisulfite Dosing

Bisulfite dosing is available as an alternative to activated carbon as a method of neutralizing chlorine in feedwater.

Cartridge Filter

A cartridge filter removes particles and some chemicals from feedwater. By removing these particulates from the feedwater the cartridge filter is protecting the reverse osmosis (RO) membranes.

254nm Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection

Ultraviolet For Water Purifciation

Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection inactivates pathogenic microorganism, such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Ultraviolet disinfection is environmentally friendly and produces no chemical by-products. UV transfers electromagnetic energy from a mercury arc lamp to an organism's genetic material (DNA and RNA). Ultraviolet lights are commonly referred to as 'germicidal' lamps thanks to their decades of use as a disinfectant for air, water, and nonporous surfaces.

Process Break Tank

Hot Water Sanitization (HWS)

Built-In Hot Water Sanitization allows for effective and easy sanitization of the system and break tank.

Heating Cooling Exchangers

Onboard heating cooling exchangers ensure that the water is at the correct temperature to maximize the efficiency of the Reverse Osmosis (RO) system.

pH Adjust Dosing

Chemical dosing systems by Aqua-Chem can handle many different kinds of chemicals while maintaining accuracy and reliable performance.

Reverse Osmosis (RO) System

Aqua-Chem’s range of Reverse Osmosis (RO) Systems are the result of decades of experience engineering complete water rooms to create the most efficient and sustainable systems to produce purified water and water for injection for pharmaceutical applications.

Reverse Osmosis (RO) System (2nd Pass)

Aqua-Chem’s range of Reverse Osmosis (RO) Systems are the result of decades of experience engineering complete water rooms to create the most efficient and sustainable systems to produce purified water and water for injection for pharmaceutical applications.

Membrane Degasifier

The membrane degasifier flows water over hollow fiber membranes while a vacuum is applied to the inside of the fibers which forces the dissolved gas to separate from the water.

Continuous Electrodeionization Modules (CEDI)

The Continuous Electrodeionization Modules (CEDI) creates an electric field and resin to captures ions and deionize water and passes the separated dissolved ions (impurities) to the concentrating compartments.

TOC Analysis

Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analysis is a measure of the total amount of carbon in organic compounds in pure water.

Final Filtration

Validated final filtration provides an additional barrier to bacteria and endotoxin for enhanced product water safety. Hot water sanitizable options are sized from 0.2 micron to 6,000 Dalton MWCO.

254nm Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection

Ultraviolet

Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection inactivates pathogenic microorganism, such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Ultraviolet disinfection is environmentally friendly and produces no chemical by-products. UV transfers electromagnetic energy from a mercury arc lamp to an organism's genetic material (DNA and RNA). Ultraviolet lights are commonly referred to as 'germicidal' lamps thanks to their decades of use as a disinfectant for air, water, and nonporous surfaces.

High-Efficiency Booster Pump

Energy-Efficient, multi-stage booster pumps mounted on a heavy-duty frame with a variable Frequency Drive (VFD) to vary the motor input based on demand.

Product Water Sampling

 An ergonomic sample station positions key monitoring points at the front of the system for easy, error free, QA/QC micro testing of grab samples without any mess thanks to an integral drain system.
