ALFAWATER's research activities have always focused on the properties of filtration surfaces, which need to be suitable for the contaminant to be removed from water.
That’s why we have implemented Nanotex™ technology (registered trademark) based on nanotechnologies applied to surfaces.
This extraordinary tissue can trap oil while filtering water.
Using Nanotex™ OilRep™ technology,
the tissue takes on a super hydrophilic properties.
The oil particles and hydrocarbons are rejected by the filter surface with negative Z potential,while the water is free to pass.
This is a revolutionary tissue capable of repelling dirt caused by organic substances suspended in water. Extremely easy to clean, this tissue allows a high flow of liquid through it for a long time.
This tissue can sterilise water running through the filter.
Using Nanotex™ KillBac™ technology, you can obtain a special antibacterial fabric.
The silver particles integrated in the polymer are a fixed component of the yarn. This minimize the breakdown of silver particles through thermal and mechanical stress. It also achieves a good repository effect.
The yarn generates a permanent “protective cloak” and inhibits or prevents any microbial or bacterial regrowth.
Micro-organism tries to form a colony and absorbs Ag+.
Micro-organism dies off after contamination with Ag+.
The use of additives such as chlorine, anti-algae and flocculants can be reduced or completely discontinued.
Reduces carbonate hardness (calcium and magnesium ions) and the amount of chlorine and lead in water.
Prevents the formation of a biofilm on water.
Minimizes or completely prevents odor formation.
Increases the shelf-life of water in closed circuits or storage systems.
