About the Book
The book deals with the anatomical features of high-purity water preparation: ozone and ultraviolet light, filtration and sanitization, pretreatments, (such as water softening), deep-bed constructions, and carbon bed operations. The management of organisms, chlorinations, silica, scaling, fouling, the presence of manganese and irons, colloids, and TOC are other topics also covered. Additionally, the text reviews the principal purification procedures of distillation, reverse osmosis, ion exchange, and the lesser-known electrically motivated processes.
It is directed to practical semiconductor, pharmaceutical and power generation applications. To achieve these ends, the book seeks to synthesize the separate individual treatment techniques into appropriate operating systems. Through this approach, the text focuses upon the reasons that compel particular treatments, the water chemistry concerns, the physical governances that require accommodation, and the logical organization of separate functions and devices into functioning systems designed for practical purposes. The approach is holistic; a unifying rationale is intended.

About The Author
Dr. Theodore H. Meltzer is a consultant in flltration and high-purity water primarily to the pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries. His interests center on the technical requirements of marketing applications, on water system critiques and logic, and on validation concerns and practices. He has served as an expert in legal litigations in these fields. He has published some 100 papers, holds four patents, and has authored two books entitled, Filtration in the Pharmaceutical Industry and High- Purity Water Preparation for the Semiconductor, Pharmaceutical and Power Industries. He has authored or coauthored chapters on Ultraviolet and Ozone Systems, Pharmaceutical Water: Generation, Storage and Distribution, Filtrative Sterilization with Microporous Membranes, and The Sizing of Microporous Membrane Systems. Trained as a polymer chemist as well as a filtration specialist, he holds a B.S. in chemistry from the College of the City of New York, an M.A. in preparative organic and biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin, a Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry from the University of Chicago, and has performed postdoctoral work on the mechanical properties of polymers at Princeton University.
