pH of DM Water is dropping



2004

I am generating dm water with pH-6.5 to 7.5 and <1 microsiemens/cm conductivity and storing in a closed vessel with positive nitrogen gas. But after a week it is found that pH has come to 5.9 but conductivity is not varied that much. Actually for us specification is pH-6.5 to 7.5 and conductivity -<1 microsiemens/cm. Resins also changed recently.

Is the water leaching something out of the storage vessel?

The question of heat always comes up. With the summer time temp the S.G. will increase. Add water to lower this. Add acid, spent or raw to correct your problem.

Hello,
When atmospheric CO2 connects with 6.5-7.5 pH value DM product water, it produces carbonic acid, so the pH is reduced.

pH drop is only due to the contamination by CO2 gas from the atmosphere. It forms Carbonic Acid which reduces the pH. For this you have to fit a carbon dioxide absorber on top vent.
