LabStrong Fi-Streem III Still 4 LPH Bi-Distilled 208V
Of all the water purification technologies available, distillation can remove a wider range of impurities than any other single form of water purification. LabStrong Fi-Streem™ Stills consistently produce high quality ASTM Type II water and can remove inorganic ions, dissolved gases, organics, particles, bacteria and pyrogens from water. LabStrong Fi-Streem Water Stills will meet your laboratory water needs while remaining budget-friendly.
The LabStrong Fi-Streem III Still consistently produces high quality ASTM Type II water. The still produces four liters of bi-distilled (double distilled) water per hour and comes with a one year limited warranty. Quotes to provide preventive maintenance (PM) contracts or quotes to provide installation/startup of the complete system are available upon request.

Consistently Pure Water
The still consistently produces high quality ASTM Type II water and can remove inorganic ions, dissolved gases, organics, particles, bacteria and pyrogens from water. The still features a unique patented vapor trap designed to eliminate all vapor borne droplets, ensuring there is no carry-over of impurities in the distillate water. The resultant is pyrogen free water at all times. Glass components in the still eliminate leaching impurities.
Multiple safety features protect the still and the user. A thermistor and over temperature protection device in each boiler assembly offers double protection against low water conditions. The base of the still is designed to contain accidental leaks within the still. The totally enclosed still design assures operator safety from breakage and hot surfaces.
Reliable and Effortless to Use
The still features user friendly operation. With the press of a single button, the still is operational. With the press of two buttons the still is in the clean mode. Fully automatic microprocessor controls simplify operation and cleaning while assuring high reliability.
The still is supplied with a float switch which shuts off the still automatically when the water storage reservoir is full, enabling safe and unattended operation. The 24-hour automatic control activates the still as required to maintain a full reservoir. The automatic control start/stop feature is enabled when the still is connected to the LabStrong 20 Liter Carboy (B00122), LabStrong 50 Liter Carboy (A1058LS), or LabStrong 40 Liter Storage Tank (B00121) via the float switch.
Highly Efficient and Economical
Multiple pretreatment options are available for the still that can produce 1 Liter of distilled water from 1.1 Liters of pretreated water. The pretreatment also helps to reduce the frequency of cleaning the still by removing scaling impurities from the inlet source water.
The optimal power design increases output with fewer watts and a built-in flow controller maximizes product water output while minimizing inlet water usage to drain. The still can be conveniently turned off for extended periods of time and returned to operation without the need for sanitizing or replacing consumables. Not only does this feature save valuable time, but also resources.
Simple to Clean
Descaling of the still is simplified by a cleaning process that does not require the dismantling of any glassware. The process requires little operator time and is easy to complete. The microprocessor and thermistor controlled operation incorporates a dual flush program to ensure the still is ready to return to normal operation following a clean cycle.
Space Saving Design
Included with the still is a wall mount bracket, which allows for wall mounting. The still can be bench mounted.
Easy to Install
The still does not require pretesting or prequalification of water prior to installing. The still can simply be connected to tap water and operate. For convenience, the still is designed with dual feed capabilities for tap or pretreated feedwater. All of the necessary tubing is included with the still to complete installation.

The Fi-Streem pretreatment cartridge kit produces treated feed water. The cartridge contains ion exchange resin that removes ionic contaminants from feedwater and it incorporates a filter to remove particulates. Water purity is easily indicated by resin color change that can be viewed at the two windows built into the casing.
