Reverse Osmosis Systems
How quickly the world of water filtration can change – a few years ago Reverse Osmosis was the ultimate in water purification – now it is about to be confined to the very narrow application of “Medical Use” only.
“Hollow Glass Fibre” is a new filtration format that is already available and expected to replace Reverse Osmosis completely in the near future.
At this time however, Domestic Reverse Osmosis for all it’s disadvantages as a water wasteful , energy hungry, high maintenance purification system remains the top of the tree for sheer efficiencey capable of producing essentially pure water.
UF or Hollow Glass Fibre – HGF
The very latest in water filtration / purification technology capable of filtering down to 0.002 microns, below the standard needed to filter out viruses from water and the same filtration efficiency as large scale desalination reverse osmosis plants like the installation at Tugun on Queensland’s Gold Coast.
The advantages of HGF Water Purification Systems are considerable.
HGF Water Purification Systems are more efficient in terms of water waste, 90% efficient in fact in comparison with Reverse Osmosis which is at best 40% efficient.
HGF Water Purification Systems are more efficient in terms of flow rate and pressure drop, hence HGF can be installed without the need for a collection tank and pressure system.
HGF Water Purification Cartridges can be as compact as carbon cartridges, but the HGF function is quite different, it serves to block physical particles or bodies from the filtered water, like RO it still needs the assistance of carbon elements to “polish” the water for taste before it is pleasant to drink.
HGF can filter out bacteria and all VIRUSES from tank water, current domestic filtration units can only filter out bacteria, so people in tropical areas where mosquito borne viruses occur can now have absolute bacterial and viral protection in their home filtration system.
