UltraPure™ also recovers energy by maintaining the ΔT of water going through the system. Norchem manufactures this technology using highly durable, corrosion resistant stainless steel. Each system has a user-friendly, touch screen PC interface to display key metrics, such as conductivity, turbidity, temperature, flow, and pressure measurements. Each UltraPure™ system is configured to meet the needs of various applications. This highly versatile technology can be applied in a wide variety of industries to filter and/or recycle liquids, recover energy, get you in compliance, and most importantly decrease operational costs.
