    Laboratory Water Distillers

    Convert tap water into high-grade distilled water that can be used in all general applications with a laboratory water distiller from Labec. We’ll help you find the right water distillation unit for laboratory purposes. A distilled water system for laboratory use from us requires minimal space, easy set-up, and no fixed plumbing.

    Frequently Asked Questions 

    What is a laboratory water distiller?

    A laboratory water distiller removes up to 99.9% of contaminants such as chemicals, heavy metals, sediment and microorganisms.

    How do you distil water for laboratory consumption?

    A typical water distillation system consists of a boiling chamber, a cooling system and a storage container.

    Is it worth getting a water distiller?

    If your laboratory requires a constant supply or a high volume amount of distilled water, then having your own, on-site distillation service can save time and money in the long term.

    What are the advantages and disadvantages of a water distiller?


    • High Purity: Distillers provide extremely pure water, essential for experiments where contaminants can skew results.
    • Removal of Contaminants: They effectively remove a wide range of contaminants, including organic and inorganic substances, microbes, and dissolved gases.
    • No Need for Filters: Distillers operate without the need for replaceable filters, reducing ongoing supply costs.
    • Consistent Quality: They produce water of consistent purity, crucial for reproducibility in experiments.


    • Energy Consumption: Distillation is energy-intensive, which may increase operational costs.
    • Time-Consuming: The process is slower compared to other methods like reverse osmosis or filtration.
    • Heat Generation: Distillers generate heat, which might be a concern in temperature-controlled lab environments.
    • Maintenance: Regular cleaning is required to prevent scale buildup and maintain efficiency.
    • Lack of Minerals: While mineral content is not usually desired in lab settings, for some applications, the absence of minerals might be a drawback.
    • Space Requirements: Distillers can take up significant bench space, which might be a constraint in smaller labs.
