Photo-Cat is a continuous flow process used to purify and/or detoxify water contaminated with organic chemicals and/or complex metals
Photo-Cat is a continuous flow process used to purify and/or detoxify water contaminated with organic chemicals and/or complex metals. This automated, ambient temperature process can treat water down to levels that exceed drinking water standards. It is essentially a solid state device that is very efficient and can operate unattended. The modular design accommodates ever changing environmental standards or treatment requirements.
Photo-Cat systems are based on a patented closed loop titanium dioxide (TiO2) photocatalyst slurry process. The turn key modular technology is comprised of sets of modular photocatalytic racks, each containing a number of individual cells. Depending on the concentration of the contaminants and the throughput required, the racks are linked together in a serial and/or parallel mode.
A key element of Purifics' technology is the continuous TiO2 separation process (patented), which allows the catalyst to be separated from the purified water and reintroduced into the inlet stream. This process is not restricted to or inhibited by any particular type of TiO2, pH level, turbidity, pressure, temperature, type of contaminants or other elements of water chemistry. Photo-Cat systems are designed to operate on water containing iron and alkalinity.
Purifics' Photo-Cat technology has been driven by and developed for the water treatment and performance requirements of industry. Consequently, high levels of reliability, robustness and minimal operator and maintenance requirements have been engineered into these industrial systems.
