Water Purification

Even in this age of high technology, there is no perfect purification process. However, when you consider the other alternatives…distillation comes the closest to producing perfect water.

In fact, distillation is widely recognized as the single most effective method of purification.

How Steam Distillation Works

Steam distillation kills harmful bacteria and viruses, removes virtually all foreign particles, inorganic minerals, heavy metals, chlorine and most volatile organic chemicals (VOCs).

Water is heated in a chamber and turned into vapor (steam). This water vapor rises leaving impurities behind in the boiling chamber. The purified vapor then enters a condenser where it is cooled and returned to the liquid state.

A basic diagram of the distillation process
  1. Ordinary tap water is heated to 212 degrees F (100 degrees C), killing bacteria, cysts and viruses by continuous boiling.
  2. Steam rises leaving behind dissolved solids, salts, heavy metals and other substances.
  3. Low boiling light gases are vented.
  4. Steam is condensed in a stainless steel coil.
  5. Distilled water then percolates through a coconut shell carbon filter, enhancing quality by adsorption of VOCs.
  6. The purified drinking water is collected and stored.

Quality distillers are designed to remove light gases by venting and special carbon post filter treatment. Unlike simple water filtration, bacteria growth is virtually nonexistent since water is passed through a natural coconut shell carbon only after it has been steam distilled. Thus, any bacteria that was previously in the water has been killed and left behind by the distillation process.

The Highest Quality Water Consistently Over Time

Distillation provides you with consistent purity, gallon after gallon, year in year out. Neither reverse osmosis nor carbon filtration can guarantee consistent quality over time. The purity of your drinking and cooking water is guaranteed when you use a quality home distiller.
