There are a number of applications for the Upflow Floating Media Clarification (UFMC) System.
Essentially, UFMC filters particulate matter from water which lends itself to a number of applications, some of which are mentioned here:
The UFMC System can clarify most surface water for potable water use. It is capable of producing millions of litres of clarified water per day and to date has been primarily used for providing communities with safe drinking water.
Sewage Waste Water Purification
The UFMC System can filter recovered sewage processed water for non-potable uses, for example: irrigation, washing, flushing of toilets etc.
Conventional systems are inefficient by comparison in terms of waste water produced. The UFMC System has been successfully used to increase the output capacity of existing filtration plants where, for example, a conventional plant has reached its limit and additional capacity is needed in a short period of time. By reprocessing settled flush water through the UFMC System, capacity can be increased.
Mobile for Disaster Response
The UFMC System can be moved around on a trailer and run off a generator to produce clarified water for post disaster applications. It’s versatility allows for use in various situations where fixed infrastructure is unfeasible or impossible. UFMC’s smallest unit can be run off a less than 5Kw generator or other power source.
