PureBoxTM FX and FXM Water Purification Systems

The PureBoxTM FX and FXM water purification systems are designed for purifying naturally occurring water sources that do not require dissolved solids removal.

The FX systems comprise media filtration and disinfection technologies that are cost-effective for less demanding applications.  The FXM systems comprise membrane filtration and disinfection technologies that are more suitable for demanding applications or those requiring the highest assurance of product quality.

The PureBoxTM FX and FXM water purification systems are an excellet choice to produce potable water from fresh water sources that do not require dissolved solids reduction by reverse osmosis.  In this application, typical raw sources may include streams, rivers, lakes, or fresh water wells and boreholes.   These systems provide 15,000 to 300,000 gallons per day from a single intermodal container. They are also an excellent choice for pretreatment of reverse osmosis feed water including seawater applications.  The FX and FXM systems incorporate the following treatment technologies:

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

Media Filter (FX) - 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.

Membrane Filter (FXM) -  The membrane filter in the FXM consists of hollow fiber microfiltration or ultrafiltration modules (depending upon application requirements).  These high performanc filters are capable of removing suspended solids down to a size of 0.02 microns.  They are also capable of treating highly turbid feed waters with no additional pretreatment (other than the inlet screen).  The membrane in these systems is automatically cleaned by means of air scouring and chemically enhanced backflushing.

Carbon Filter (Optional) - The primary 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.
