PureBoxTM FX Water Purification System ... More Info

The PureBoxTM FX water purification system is designed to produce pure water from fresh water sources that do not require dissolved solids reduction by reverse osmosis.   The FX system provide 15,000 to 300,000 gallons per day from a single intermodal container. The FX systems incorporate the following treatment technologies:

Inlet Screen - A backwashable inlet screen removes large debris which might plug valve ports or otherwise have a detrimental effect on the treatment system.

Media Filter - The media filter consists of a fiberglass composite pressure vessel containing TurbidexTM high performance filter media.  TurbidexTM granules consist of a high surface area alumino-silicate mineral that provides exceptional suspended solids filtration. The macro porous nature of TurbidexTM allows for filtration at levels approaching five microns in particle size.

Carbon Filter - The media filter is followed by a carbon filter utilizing catalytic carbon which is highly efficient in removing hydrogen sulfide, iron, chloramines, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), trace organics, tastes, and odors.

Hypochlorite Injection - This component of the system includes a chemical injection pump and day tank for the injection of sodium hypochlorite (bleach).  This final treatment step insures that the treated water remains safe from bacterial contamination.  The injection pump is controlled by an electronic flow sensor.
