How it Works

A procedure used by aquasource since 1984

The operation of aquasource systems is fully autonomous and automated. The raw water is first prefiltered. It is then pumped at a low pressure (< 0.3 bar) into ultrafiltration modules (In/ Out). The membrane acts as a filter for particles larger than 0.02 μm. The system alternates sequences of filtration and backwashing resulting in a stable and long-lasting operational life. aquasource has developed processes based on mechanical backwashing during the production phase, with no added chemical reagents. Depending on the client requirements and raw water quality, additional cleaning products can be added (acid, base or chlorine).

One simple step for both clarifying and disinfecting water

A simple procedure called "low pressure" ultrafiltration permits the clarification and disinfection of water in a single step. A membrane barrier acts like a filter for all particles over 20 nm in size: pollen, algae, bacteria, viruses, germs and organic molecules.

Pure water of consistently high quality 

This technology guarantees water of consistently high quality, with no taste or odor, no matter what the quality or turbidity of the water source.

An enviromentally friendly technology

The ultrafiltration procedure is mechanical: it reduces treatment waste and the need to use chemicals, while conserving the mineral equilibrium of the water.
