What is distillation?

Distillation provides mineral-free water to be used in science laboratories or for printing purposes, as both functions require mineral free water. It removes heavy metals materials like lead, arsenic, and mercury from water and hardening agents like calcium and phosphorous. Distillation is often used as the preferred water purification method in developing nations, or areas where the risk of waterborne disease is high, due to its unique capabilities to remove bacteria and viruses from drinking water.
