Purification Process


9 stage water purification process:

  • Stage 1 & 2  - Dual gradient micron filter
  • Stage 3 - Ion Exchange digital water softener
  • Stage 4 & 5 - Dual gradient micron filter 
  • Stage 6 - High volume carbon dechlorinator
  • Stage 7 - Reverse osmosis membrane
  • Stage 8 - Ultraviolet sterilization filter
  • Stage 9 - Polishing filter

8 stage ice purification process:

  • Stage 1 & 2  - Dual gradient micron filter
  • Stage 3 - Ion Exchange digital water softener
  • Stage 4 & 5 - Dual gradient micron filter 
  • Stage 6 - High volume carbon dechlorinator
  • Stage 7 - Ultraviolet sterilization filter
  • Stage 8 - Polishing filter

It is a well-known fact that there can be over 50 different types of chemicals and contaminants added to water supplies at any one time. Water from dams, rivers, boreholes or tanks can be contaminated by: fuel emissions, industrial waste, human waste, chemicals, sewage, agricultural waste (including pesticides, fertilisers and animal waste), chemical spills, mirco-organisms or drug residues. Water authorities then add chemicals such as chlorine, chloramine, aluminium and fluoride to destroy these micro-organisms. On top of this there can be further contamination through water pipes in poor condition or made from dangerous metals.

Using Ice Express is the best way to overcome the risks associated with the contaminants above. Ice Express uses Reverse Osmosis (RO) and Ion Exchange (IE) to purify our water. Most conventional filtration systems are unable to remove volatile organic compounds, fluoride and an estimated 75,000+ other chemical compounds. Ice Express uses RO because it removes nearly all of these impurities being able to remove chemicals in the water that carbon can’t. We also use IE as it removes excess minerals and leaves the water to be regarded as far better tasting.

Our purification process can remove all of the elements listed below:

Ions and Metals Arsenic, Aluminium, Barium, Cadmium, Calcium, Chloride, Chlorine, Chromium, Copper, Fluoride, Iron, Lead, Magnesium, Manganese, Mercury, Nitrate, Potassium, Radium, Radon, Selenium, Silver, Sodium, Sulphate, Zinc, Organic Chemicals, Benzene, Carbon tetrachloride, Dichlorobenzene, Toluene 1, Trichloroethylene, Total Trihalomethanes (THM’s), Particles of Asbestos, Protozoan cysts, Cryptosporidium, Pesticides 1, 2, 4 – trichlorobenzene, 2, 4-D, Atrazine, Endrin, Heptachlor, Lindane, Pentachlorophenol.
