Photo-Cat is a photocatalytic membrane system that destroys organic pollutants when they are mixed with the titanium dioxide (TiO2) slurry, and activated by full spectrum UV light. The patented continuous TiO2 separation process allows the catalyst to be completely recaptured and reintroduced into the inlet stream.
Photo-Cat is typically used in tandem with CUF for maximum operating potential with the least cost. Photo-Cat can oxidize or reduce organics and metals, removes mercury, and is an absolute filter for pathogens.
Like CUF, Photo-Cat is a proven system that is compact and durable, with low installation, operating, and maintenance costs. Photo-Cat is an environmentally friendly technology that doesn’t produce waste water and adds no harmful chemicals to the sludge.Download Technology Attributes
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.
Photo-Cat oxidation has the highest oxidation potential of 3.21 ev giving it the ability to treat chemicals that hydroxyl (OH’) based processes like UV oxydation can not achieve. This process eliminates the need for carbon.
Purifics invests 15% of annual revenue on research and development. 25+ Years Applications Experience and 26 Patents & Patents Pending Providing market-disruptive technologies worldwide since 1993.
Purifics’ Long Life UV Lamps eliminate the need for annual lamp replacement and waste disposal.
Long life lamps have an additional cost of only $1 and prevents mercury embrittlement (the browning of the lamp).
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.
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.
Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals have the potential to interfere with hormonal regulation and disturb the normal endochrine system, causing undesireable health outcomes as well as impacts on human and animal reproduction.
Photo-Cat AOP+ has both reductive and oxidative pathways and the highest oxidation potential (3.21eV), which gives it the ability to destroy chemicals other AOPs cannot. It is not impacted by UVT.
