The PENTEK® FreshPoint™ Ultrafiltration System provides complete point-of-entry (POE) Filtration proven to reduce turbidity, particulates and cysts for safer, cleaner water at every tap. The system employs hollow-fiber Ultrafiltration membrane technology to filter impurities as small as 0.025 microns.
To maximize membrane capacity and service life, a metered flushing cycle is controlled using an advanced controller and high-performance turbine meter. The self-cleaning forward and back-flush cycles are initiated when the programmed capacity of the membrane is reached. During the backwash, flow is reversed and particles are ejected from the pores of the membrane and flushed to drain. In the forward-flush cycle, service water passes through the capillaries at a high speed, scouring particles from the membrane surface and rinsing them from the system. Since power is only required to flush the system, outages and interruptions will not jeopardize the integrity of membrane or its ability to provide safer, cleaner water.
The advanced electronic controller provides a programmable day override which allows the unit to flush every day with fresh water when the system is not in use. Critical system diagnostics, including totalized flow, instantaneous flow rate, and previous day’s water usage, are available to optimize flushing cycles and monitor performance.
The high-performance industrial fiberglass housing is pressure rated to 300 psi. Inside the housing, the membrane is sealed with double radial o-rings, minimizing the potential for leak paths. Quick-connect end caps allow the membrane to be easily removed for cleaning or replacement.
The system can be applied to solve “known” water problems including high turbidity, suspended solids, and certain microbiological contaminants. It can also serve as a flushable pre-filter to extend the life of media filters downstream.
