What Is Demineralised water?
Demineralised water is water completely free (or almost) of dissolved minerals as a result of one of the following processes: distillation. deionization. membrane filtration (reverse osmosis or nanofiltration)
Is demineralized water the same as distilled water?
The major difference between demineralised water and distilled water is that distilled water usually has less organic contaminants; deionisation does not remove uncharged molecules such as viruses or bacteria. Demineralised water most times has less mineral ions; this is dependent on the way it is produced
Why is demineralized water important?
Uses in Chemistry
Using deonized water in the chemistry laboratory is important because the ions found in water can affect your experiments. Incorporation of these ions, even if in only small amounts, can cause your experiments to receive false results — or to not work at all.
Can you drink demineralized water?
Is is still a good idea to drink highly aggressive, demineralized water? Most health experts say no. Should you use demineralized water for cooking, making coffee or preparing baby formula? The experts clearly say no, it’s not safe drinking water.
