A filter is far from being a waterworks

One of the most complex areas of environmental engineering in the 21st century is water treatment.

Factors such as the oxygen content of the water, the raw hydrogen composition, the different properties of the substances in the water and microorganisms as well as their reactivity, flow velocities and the temperature of the water are elementary points that influence the effectiveness of various water treatment processes.

On the one hand, the different treatment methods pursue contrary goals, which have an effect on the final quality of the water with regard to the efficiency of filtration, and on the other hand, they are not universally suitable for all requirements due to existing weaknesses.

The safest way to generate as pure water as possible is the treatment according to the “water pipe”, since this way the problem of subsequent contamination due to foreign substances in the line after the processing unit out of the way.

According to the UN, around 750 million people have no access to clean drinking water. Climate change is causing increasing periods of drought and pollutant levels in groundwater are rising.

As early as 2025, the World Health Organization expects this number to rise to around 1.8 billion.

The industry pollutes the air and everything seeps into the groundwater. The Chinese government, for example, officially states that it can not guarantee clean air and clean water.

But in Germany too we are struggling with hormones, drug residues and chemicals in drinking water that are increasingly likely to cross the barriers of waterworks.

On the one hand, it is due to outdated processing techniques and, on the other hand, that there are no limit values or legal regulations for about 50,000 substances, whereby the limit values have continuously been raised here over the past 30 years. German drinking water is not examined for viruses, drug residues or hormones.

In the development of the Membratech® A series, we paid particular attention to this problem and created a system that did not exist before and that can effectively counteract global drinking water pollution.

The Membratech® A-Series incorporates advanced technology with an intelligent safety system and is the world’s first miniature waterworks to meet all water treatment challenges, making it efficient both in developed nations and in crisis or third world countries to give as many people as possible access to clean drinking water.

An external high-performance sterile filter and an internal carbon block filter remove most of the contaminants in the water such as heavy metals, sediment, chemicals and germs before the water reaches the heart of the Membratech® A-Series.

Specially designed hydrocarbon membranes with pores one million times finer than a human hair safely remove even small molecular contaminants such as viruses, hormones and drug residues from drinking water. Another advantage is their chemical resistance and non-stick surface to counteract deposits on the membranes.

Between membranes and water outlet, the water passes through a UV unit to safely remove any remaining germs from the water and to prevent recontamination via the water outlet.

The Membratech® A-Series intelligent and sensor-connected safety system monitors all performance-related processes 24 hours a day and detects even raw water changes to which it reacts with adapted membrane rinses.

The tankless “Direct-Flow” process prevents bacterial contamination of the most commonly used storage tanks and the “flush-out” function sucks the remaining water in the pipes after successful water extracting and transports it out of the system to prevent water stagnation.

With performance levels of 80-300 liters/hour, depending on the model, the Membratech® A-Series is world-class in this area as well.

But not only the technology inspires, but also the design! The models of the Membratech® A-Series are also true design objects. From undercounter to top table systems to gastronomy and mounting systems, there is something for every taste. Even with the customization options, no compromises have to be made.

Noble metallic or pearlescent lacquers with Membratech® logo in Swarovski finish can be realized as well as special special wishes with eg Murano glass, leather finishing, platinum, gold leaf and/or diamond finish.
