Comparing Distillation & Filtration
   
 
Comparing Water Purification System.  

In today's competitive drinking water purification system market, choices for the consumer abound. The choice is either distillation or all the other variations of filtration.
In the side by side comparisons below we have narrowed the choices down to the most popular systems.
Get a quick overview of how the Monark Water Distillation system compares to other systems on the market like reverse osmosis and water filters or water purifiers.
 
 
REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM DISTILLATION SYSTEMS
The Process : The Process :
Water is forced under pressure through a synthetic, semi-permeable membrane. The Water that passes through the membrane goes into a storage tank, most of the water goes down the drain with the contaminants that were removed.
Heat is added to water, causing it to evaporate, thus leaving the contaminants behind. The steam is then captured and cooled back down into the high purity distilled water and collected in a food grade container.
The Effectiveness : The Effectiveness :
In theory, the membrane, because of its extremely small pore-size prevents micro-organisms and chemical contaminates from passing through the membrane. In practice, however, the contaminants build-up, clog and damage the membrane. Bacteria grow through the membrane and make holes in it, so the quality of water produced by reverse osmisis degrades over time. This means that the quality of the water is not consistent, and the customer has little peace of mind.
The boiling action kills bacteria and other micro-organisms, and contaminants are left behind in the boiling chamber. The effectiveness of distillation is over 99+% (99.99% removal has been achieved even on ocean water-over 35,000 PPM). The quality of the distilled water is not affected by the level of source water contaminantion, water temperature or pressure. The quality of the distilled water remains consistent over the life of the unit! Peace of mind is excellent!
 
 
 
WATER FILTERS DISTILLATION SYSTEM
The Process : The Process :
Water is passed through a filter to remove certain contaminants. Most filters use activated carbon (carbon which has been treated by high heat in the absence of oxygen) to absorb some organic and inorganic contaminants. Absorption occurs by strong molecular attraction that carbon has for some of the contaminants often found in water.

Heat is added to water, causingt it to evaporate, thus leaving the contaminants behind. The steam is then captured and cooled back down into high purity distilled water which is collected in a food grade container
The Effectiveness : The Effectiveness :
When brand new, a carbon filter will do a fairly good job of removing certain organic contaminants, but it will do remove other contaminants in the water such as biological, toxic metals or radioactive. There are a number of factors which can adversely affect their effectiveness.

* The physical barrier of a filter can break down
* Overall effectiveness is poor and declines sharply over time
* Proper contact time ( 7-18 mins) is crucial or even organic substances may not be removed.
* Filters can quickly clog up.
* Filters can become a breeding ground for bacteria often within 5 days or less.
* Inorganic contaminants are ineffectively removed. In fact the total dissolved solids will generally increase inside the filter, sometimes significantly.
* Long term replacement cost of filters are often quite high.
* Since one has no idea how effective a filter is at any given time, peace of mind is usually low.

The boiling action action kills bacteria and other micro-organisms, and contaminants are left behind in the boiling chamber. The effectiveness of distillation is over 99.+% (99.99% removal has been achieved even on ocean water which is over 35,000 PPM). The quality of the distilled water is not affected by the level of source water contamination, water temperature or pressure. The quality of the distilled water remains consistent over the life of the unit! Peace of mind is excellent!

* No filter cartridge to replace or wash.
* Low power consumption with automatic switch-off
*
Can be used to distill filtered water, tap water, rain water will water, pond water, river water, sea water.
* Portable models can be used anywhere in the house, office or brought along during long holidays, as no plumbing is required.
