Light water (deuterium depleted water - DDW) is produced in our own specialized production base located at JSC "Almaz" (Kotovsk). Water depletion is conducted using a patented method of low-temperature vacuum distillation. The processes in rectification column reproduce natural processes occurring in the atmosphere.
Each installation passes certification testing of our own laboratory before commissioning.
Production of light water (deuterium depleted water - DDW) is an energy-intensive process: that’s why we seek development and continuous improvement of production technology. New highly efficient installations are permanently constructed and put into operation.
In such 8 meter high columns heavy water molecules are removed by means of low-temperature vacuum rectification.
