Microbiological ultrafiltration (bacteria, parasites, protozoa …) is employed to purify water from van, camper, and boat tanks as well as from cisterns and wells in rural homes.
The technology of this filter is a capillary membrane with microporous structure of 0.01 microns (μm), made of polyethersulfone, more commonly known as UF hollow fiber membrane. It works by physically separating of pathogens that are trapped inside the filter according to their size.
UF hollow fiber membranes have many advantages over other types of filtration:
No need for chemicals (coagulants, flocculants, disinfectants, pH adjustments).
Filtration by size exclusion is different from depth media filtration, adsorption or chlorination.
Proper and consistent quality of the treated water in terms of elimination of particles and microorganisms, regardless of the initial quality of the water, whether it comes from a river, rain or a well.
Its installment is extremely simple, attaching the pipe or hose to a half-inch inlet and outlet connection.
It has a lifespan of 30,000 liters (depending on turbidity) so there is no need to change the filtering surface. When the filter is clogged, a complete replacement is required.
