What are the technical/scientific details behind the process of water deionization? How does deionization machines like those manufactured by Millipore work?

    $\begingroup$ @Michiel - If you could summarize/explain the process, that would be a good answer. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ As pointed out by Michiel, there is a lot of info on Merck's Millipore website. You can get a pdf with some technical specifications for each equipment. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @BenNorris - I don't have that much knowledge on the topic to expand on the information already given on that website and I don't think summarizing a different webpage is going to do any good in helping the OP. Typically a bit more extensive explanation is easier to follow. $\endgroup$

Most cost/energy efficient method to make deionized water is reverse osmosis. The mechanism is to apply external pressure to water and force it to go through a layer or layers of semipermeable membrane.
