SpectraPure MaxCap RO/DI systems and replacement filters are among the best money can buy! Get the lowdown in this Reef Hacks review
SpectraPure® 100gpd MaxCap® UHE™ Ultra-High-Efficiency 5 Stage RO/DI System has been designed to conserve one of our most precious resources ... Water. This 100 gallon-per-day RO/DI System combines our innovative UHE™ 1:1 Ratio RO Technology with our field-proven MaxCap® DI Technology to create a water processing system that produces high-quality ultra-pure water, while reducing water consumption and waste by four to ten times over other systems. Produce 100gpd of ultra-high-purity DI water without compromising membrane life or system reliability. We have miniaturized the technology used in our rugged commercial PSP systems to achieve an incredible 1:1 ratio (* that’s ONE gallon of DI product water for ONE gallon of waste water *) all in a microprocessor-controlled unit no bigger than a standard RO/DI system! Even with such high production rates, the revolutionary MaxCap® UHE™ has extremely low operational costs compared to other systems. Pre-filters last 2-3 times longer over conventional higher waste systems and the integral microprocessor-controlled UHE boost module automatically performs periodic pure-water membrane flushes to extend membrane life and eliminate TDS creep. The MaxCap® UHE™ RODI System also incorporates our new MaxCap® and SilicaBuster™ High-Capacity ("HC") DI Cartridges for extra-long-life between DI Cartridge changes ... all to produce Ultra-Pure DI water at half the cost of other systems.
MICROPROCESSOR UHE CONTROL MODULE:
Ultra-High Efficiency Module -- Low Waste system (1:1 or better*).
Integral Booster Pump: Operates even in low supply pressure problem areas.
Automatic Periodic Pure Water Membrane Flush!**
Membranes last longer! No more TDS Creep! The first drop is as good as the last drop.
HIGHEST EFFICIENCY PRE-FILTRATION AVAILABLE:
- Our best 0.2 Micron (Absolute) ZetaZorb® Sediment Filter. 5X more dirt holding capacity than a standard 0.5 Micron Filter!
- Our best 0.5 micron Carbon Block Pre-Filter with 20,000 ppm-gallons chlorine removal capacity. All the carbon block you ever need.
- Pre-Filters last 2x-3x longer in the UHE system as less waste = less water thru pre-filters = longer life = more money saved!
BEST OF THE BEST RO MEMBRANE:
- Highest quality individually tested SpectraSelect™ High-Rejection (98+%) RO Membrane
- 100 Gallons Per Day (or more!)
ULTRA CAPACITY DUAL STAGE DI:
- 33% larger capacity MAXCAP® and SilicaBuster™ 10” DI High-Capacity (“HC”) DI Cartridges.
- MaxCap® DI has 4 times more capacity than a typical mixed bed DI cartridge. Cuts DI water production costs in half!
- SpectraPure’s Silica-Buster™ DI maximizes silica & phosphate removal.
ACCESSORIES INCLUDED WITH SYSTEM:
- Two Dual-Probe Inline TDS Meters: Accurately monitor TDS at each stage. No more guessing when to change DI cartridges. You can always be assured of “000 TDS” water.
- Liquid Filled Pressure Gauge: Monitors Pre-Filter changes.
- Filter Wrench: Helps remove Housing Canisters.
- Dual Electric Float Switches: Automates system to fill an atmospheric storage tank (open reservoir - provided by user) of any size.
* In areas having extremely poor water quality (TDS >350ppm) we recommend the system be operated at a 2:1 ratio of waste to product in order to maximize membrane life.
** The UHE system is designed to automatically fill an open-air pure-water-reservoir of any size (not included) by installing two float level control switches.
Pure water reservoir is required to fully automate system flush cycle, and failure to install the auto-flush plumbing for this unit will void warranty.
