Waterpurifier KCW 1000 Ultrafiltration
The Waterpurifier KCW 1000 removes organic contaminants, viruses, bacteria, cysts, etc. down to a size of 0.01 micron without requiring toxic chemical treatments. Based on world class ultrafiltration technology ; the filtration principle works by physical particle exclusion. . Raw water is filtered under pressure through a high-technology hollow fibre membrane .
Advantages of Ultrafiltration:
Much higher flow rates compared to RO systems.
Retains the natural mineral content in the water.
Requires less energy compared to RO systems.
Less prone to membrane fouling.
Stronger resistance to disinfectants like chlorine.
The KCW 1000 Ultrafiltration system uses thousands of ultrafiltration hollow fibre membrane strands. Each membrane strand contains billions of microscopic pores. Household water pressure pushes water molecules through these pores towards the hollow centre of the membrane. The membrane filtration provides 99.9999% reduction of bacteria and 99.99% of virus by mechanical means. Filtered water then flows through each fibre and is distributed to every household fixture.
Due to the small pore size, particles that are too large to pass through are physically blocked out, while dissolved salts and essential minerals freely pass through.
Unlike Reverse Osmosis, Ultrafiltration does not remove the dissolved mineral salts, hence the filtered water is not acidic and provides improved health benefits.
The KCW-1000 Ultrafiltration unit provides a high flow of up to 1000 l/hr of filtered drinking water and includes a 0,01 micron ultrafiltration and KDF filter in one filter module. The membrane system needs to be installed so that the drain water is plumbed up to a fixture that can be used for non-potable purpose. This will ensure that the membrane module is flushed on a regular basis and will not clog up. The permeate flow can be connected to the potable applications.
It is recommended that a pre-filter of 5 micron is installed prior to the ultrafiltration module to prevent fouling or damage to the hollow fibres. For rain water filtration we recommend an activated carbon or carbon block filter to protect the membrane from dissolved organic carbons.
