A 5th Generation Ceramic Filtration process with proven performance representing a quantum leap forward in membrane filtration; effectively rendering other membrane processes obsolete in terms of comparative performance. CUF has no permeate loss, no CIP, no membrane replacement and in most applications no pretreatment. CUF systems have a considerably smaller footprint with significant complexity reduction over other ceramic or polymeric membrane filtration systems. Low TMP (Trans Membrane Pressure) and unmatched flux and duty further contribute to unmatched operating and capital cost structure reductions over conventional alternatives.Process Description
Ratings & Certification
Ceramic Ultra Filtration / Reverse Osmosis. CUF removes nanoparticles creating a very low SDI feed water to the RO. This integrated process purifies groundwater of a combination of challenges including TSS, turbidity, sand, pathogens, metals, nitrates, and other salts. This integrated technology can be utilized to treat source water of the poorest quality to drinking water standards.
Purifics’ technology eliminates clarifiers, mixers, polymer, pre-filters, UV annual replacement, green sand, chlorine oxidation, backwash, chemicals, large building footprint and associated costs in conventional water treatment.
CUF eliminates backwash and back pulse in membrane water purification processes. This eliminates cross contamination hazards, reduces operating costs, is more energy efficient and environmentally friendly.
CUF Silicon Carbide (SiC) Membranes are self-cleaning and virtually indestructible. They provide higher flux than conventional membranes and operate in extreme temperatues and across all the entire ph range.
Spares for Purifics systems are available from multiple sources of supply. Clients are able to source directly to ensure fair market pricing.
Pilot Test results are linear scale-ups for full scale installation.
Purifics’ proprietary Dynamic Shock technology prevents and inhibits membrane fouling. Traditional back pulse, back wash, and permeate losses are eliminated.
CUF and Photo-Cat are Single Platform systems. They are modular and scalable to fit your requirements. Platforms offer mobility and can be transported by truck, ship or aircraft.
Purifics process has the lowest life-cycle costs and reduces CapEx and OpEx by up to 80%. View Case Histories and Book a Webinar to Learn More.
