What is Electrodeionization (EDI)?

Electrodeionization (EDI), also known as Continuous Deionization (CDI) technology, is a process that combines semi-membrane technology with ion exchange media. This technology allows the advantages of electrodialysis and ion exchange to be effectively combined to provide an efficient desalination process.

Used to remove ions from water through electroactive media, the process requires no chemicals and the system has the ability to regenerate itself automatically. The produced water is characterized by high purity and stable water quality.

How does Electrodeionization System Work?

EDI technology uses a DC power supply to deionize water and separate dissolved ions from the water by means of electricity, ion exchange membranes, and resins. The DC voltage causes the cations to move toward the cathode, while the anion exchange resin removes the negatively charged ions. The ions are transferred to the concentration chamber using cationic and anionic semi-permeable membranes and flushed out of the module through a continuous waste stream. Strong ions are removed from the process stream and thus the conductivity becomes very low.

Unlike other water purification technologies, it does not use chemical treatment. There are also EDI units commonly referred to as continuous electrodeionization (CEDI), which treat water to very high purity with a conductivity below 0.1 μS/cm. Also, the current can continuously regenerate the resin block.

What does EDI Equipment Remove from Water?

Many industries require high-purity water, such as the pharmaceutical and electronics industries and laboratories. Electrodeionization removes salts and ionizable aqueous contaminants from raw water, including

  • Sodium
  • Calcium
  • Chlorine
  • Potassium
  • Ammonia
  • Boron
  • Silicon dioxide
  • Carbon dioxide
  • etc.

3 Basic Steps of EDI Process

– Electrodialysis: With the voltage continuously applied, positive and negative ions are guided to the electrodes with opposite loads. The permeable membranes for anions and cations are responsible for directing them to the concentration zone.

– Ion exchange: The power supply of the EDI continuously provides a DC current between the two electrodes. Positively charged ions pass through the cation resin bed and through the cation exchange membrane into the concentration chamber. Negatively charged ions pass through the anion resin bed, through the anion exchange membrane and into the concentration chamber. The salts in the water are eventually replaced by hydroxyl anions and hydrogen cations.

– Regeneration: As the ions are removed and migrate into the concentration chamber, the resin can achieve regeneration. An electric current can split a small fraction of the water molecules into hydrogen and hydroxide ions, causing the resin bed to regenerate continuously: H2O → H+ + OH-. (called hydrolysis).

What is the Difference Between Deionization (DI)and Electrodeionization(EDI)?

Deionization refers to the removal of cations and anions from water to obtain nearly pure water, mainly through the RO membrane and mixed bed resin to remove impurities in the ionic state of the water. A Deionization system can remove most of the ions in water, such as calcium, copper, iron, sodium ions, bromides, and chlorine. However, soluble organic matter is still present in the water after passing the deionization process.

EDI is a chemical-free form of deionization that uses direct current and can achieve very high purity of produced water by consuming electricity.EDI cannot be used for water with a hardness above 1 because calcium carbonate forms crusts that limit the system’s operation.

EDI technology is commonly used to polish reverse osmosis permeates, not only to make up for the shortcomings of the traditional process by simplifying the process steps but also to improve production efficiency, it can replace the traditional ionized mixed bed device. As the ideal choice for the deionization process in the pure water industry, electrodeionization equipment is more advantageous than conventional deionized water plants, both in terms of the performance of the equipment itself and in terms of investment.

Can an Electrodeionization Equipment Remove Carbon Dioxide?

Carbon dioxide can pass freely through the RO membrane, breaking down and increasing the conductivity of the water. CO 2 in water is usually removed by adjusting the pH of the water before feeding it to the reverse osmosis membrane to remove the ionic material.

Electrodeionization Equipment Remove Carbon Dioxide

Any ionic material formed by CO 2 gas will lower the exit resistivity of the water produced by EDI modules. Unlike reverse osmosis systems, EDI water treatment is effective in removing CO2 concentrations from feed water. RO systems cannot remove CO2, so water treatment projects rely heavily on EDI water systems for this purpose.
