MERCK Synergy® Water Purification System

Synergy® systems are designed for laboratories that already have access to purified water and need a point-of-use system to supply ultrapure water.

Category: Tag:

*Please note: remote dispenser pictured is an optional extra.

With the Synergy® range of water purification systems, you benefit from a choice of ultrapure water configurations. All systems produce Type 1 water (18.2 MΩ•cm at 25 °C ultrapure water) on demand from pretreated water. For applications sensitive to organic contaminants, a UV version of the Synergy® system is also available. It incorporates a dual wavelength UV lamp for photooxidation of organic compounds. A final purification step at the point-of-dispense removes specific contaminants critical for your experiments. A range of purification cartridges and Application-Paks is available for you to select according to your requirements.

Simple handling and maintenance

  • – Easy installation anywhere in your laboratory with its compact design and optional remote dispenser. Either wall-mounted, on or under the bench, choose the setup that is most convenient for your daily work.
  • – Dispensing adapted to different size laboratory glassware at an instant flow rate of 1.5 L/min.
  • – Save time thanks to the volumetric function. It will automatically deliver the water volume that you requested.
  • – Easily insert your pack in one movement with the patented locking mechanism.

These values (validated with Elix® feed water) are typical and may vary depending on the nature and concentration of contaminants in the feed water.

Feed water

Feed water quality          Elix®, RiOs™, distilled or DI water with conductivity < 100 µS/cm and TOC < 50 ppb
Feed water connection          ½” Gaz M
Feed water pressure *          0 – 0.3 bar
Feed water temperature          5 – 35 °C
* For pressure above 0.3 bar, a pressure regulator needs to be installed upstream of the system; for pressures between 0 and -0.2 bar, the system will operate, but product flow rate may be lower.
