Unlike conventional biochemical water filter systems, hyperfiltration is based on a purely physical filtration process. This process does not require filters to be changed continually (active carbon) and is able to filter out more pollutants. This means: the Umuntu filter system is lower maintenance, requires less consumable material and can be used for considerably longer than conventional systems.
The specially developed filtering mechanism saves up to 50% on energy and water in comparison with reverse osmosis or distillation units. It is more hygienic than biochemical or distillation filter systems, since the filters are permanently being rinsed and the filtered residues go directly into waste water.
