High-Capacity Ultrafiltration for Bacteria Removal
Ultrafiltration is a powerful new tool in the fight to protect homeowners from the dangers and nuisances posed by bacteria, viruses, and other parasites in their drinking water. How does it work? It uses a filter technology called the Hollow Fiber Membrane to instantly remove these pathogens, at a rate of 99.99% or greater – and with very minimal loss of water pressure. This filtration system flushes itself to a floor drain when it gets “full” or “plugged,”. In this manner, the filter membranes normally last 1 – 3 years. Beside microbial filtration, High-Capacity Ultrafiltration (HUF®) for Bacteria Removal also does a fantastic job of removing particulates of all kind.
Common residential applications for Ultrafiltration include E. coli, and iron/sulfur bacteria removal from well water, removal of protozoan pathogens (like Cryptosporidium and “Brain-Eating Amoeba”), as well as general microbial and particulate filtration. Ultrafiltration is particularly useful when installed downstream of a carbon filter (which is used to improve taste/odor, absorb chemicals, and remove pharmaceutical byproducts). Unfortunately, carbon filters have the disadvantage of drastically increasing bacterial counts in a home’s water supply. High-Capacity Ultrafiltration for Bacteria Removal is the perfect solution to this problem!
Ensuring the Safety of Your Home’s Water
WCC (Water Control Corporation) is extremely proud to offer a line-up of residential and light-duty commercial Ultrafiltration products. They are highly effective and all feature German-made hollow fiber membranes by Seccua GmbH.
The UrSpring Home ultrafiltration system removes turbidity, bacteria, viruses and parasites from city water supplies. In combination with a carbon filter, it safely removes chlorine, chloramines, pharmaceutical by-products, hormones, heavy metals and carcinogens. The result is safe, pure water for your family.
The UrSpring Well ultrafiltration system removes turbidity, bacteria and parasites from well water without the use of chemicals.
In combination with a carbon filter, it even removes pesticides, herbicides and residuals from pharmaceuticals, which contaminate ground water through discharge and agriculture.
Together with a simple air-injected iron filter, it eliminates nasty iron bacteria problems.
Compared to any other conventional filtration, the UrSpring Well not only offers superior performance but, due to its automatic and intelligent self-cleaning program, also saves you money and maintenance.
