A Product by Orlab

The Astacus² system is designed for the production of ultra pure water out of permeate from a reverse osmosis or deionised water. The Astacus² water purification system is available in different configurations (Reagent, Analytical & LifeScience) to meet the specific requirements of ultra pure water for different applications. Analytical is a version with UV lamp for low TOC value. Life Science version comes with UV lamp and Ultrafiltration Module for low TOC and low endotoxin values. An optionally integrated TOC sensor allows the user to monitor the TOC content permanentely online. Besides that the Astacus² can be configured as bench top or bench-integrated system with external panel and wall mounted (with inclined display). The μS-control checks the conductivity of feed water to protect the cartridges against inappropriate feed water. If conductivity is too high the water flow will be rejected.
