Tucker Portable De-Ionized System
Includes TDS Meter
Includes TDS Meter and shipping box
A De-Ionization Tank (DI Tank) is filled with a mixed-bed of resin beads that are positively and negatively charged. The Total Dissolved Solids within typical tap water have either a positive or negative charge. As the tap water passes through the DI Tank (or DI Cartridge) the dissolved particles attach themselves to the oppositely charged ions and stay within the DI Tank (or DI Cartridge). The finished water continues on, 99.9% pure.
Depending on local water hardness a DI Tank (or DI Cartridge) will become saturated after a certain period of use***. The resin can then be regenerated in the DI Tank almost to its full capacity making the use eco-friendly at a fraction of the cost of new resin.
Often DI systems can be obtained locally by a local water treatment company (see Yellow Pages under Water Softening & Conditioning Equipment). We recommend you get quotes from more than one provider, since costs can vary. If you have trouble obtaining DI equipment, contact Tucker for assistance. Regeneration is required with DI tanks. DI Cartridges require replacement.
Many window cleaners in Southern California discovered the benefits of DI water and "spot free" rinse in the 1980's. Today, a DI tank or cartridge is an excellent way to discover first hand the benefits of "spot free" water for a variety of cleaning applications, including window cleaning. Reverse osmosis systems (RO) can lengthen the life of your DI system, reducing your overall cost of water.
Many companies will first use reverse osmosis to get the ppm down in the 40-50 range and then run thru DI system.
Some companies will buy water from a local bottled water company that first purifies its water using reverse osmosis and then run thru DI system.
To monitor the saturation point a DI Monitor is used. A small probe, screwed into the head assembly of the tank and connected to a purity light, gives an instant read-out if the water is good or is in need or regeneration (or replacement, if cartridge system in use).
low ppm (parts per million) 30-50 - parts of Oregon and Washington).
medium ppm (parts per million) 200 - Many areas of the country high ppm (parts per million) 600 - approximately 52 gallons before regenerating. Places like Arizona and New Mexico.
To determine how many gallons the system will deliver in your area, use the Hand Held TDS meter that comes with your system to determine the TDS (total dissolved solids) in your water supply.
TDI 420 System
Not recommended for over 600TDS
The “C” method pole averages 3⁄4 gallon per minute with the fan spray nozzle.
There are just 5 steps to assembly.
It does not hurt the DI system to store it with water in it for short periods of inactivity (less than a month) as long as it does not freeze. It is better not to leave the DI system in direct sunlight. It may help your DI system last longer if you use a Particulate pre-filter. (This is recommended in areas that use well water or have other particles in the water.)
