Over 650 million people in the world do not have access to drinkable water. AC Plastics has developed parts for patented ultra-filtration technology that can produce clean drinking water for people in need.
Air pressure forces water through the approximately 15 nanometre (0.015 micron) hollow fibre membrane pores of an ultra-filtration cartridge and out through the exit nozzle, leaving microbiological contamination behind. This LifeSaver® purification technology essentially provides a physical barrier against viruses, bacteria and cysts. No chemicals or electrical power is required.
As well as this ultra-filtration we also make many components and filter housings for carbon filtration systems that are typically used in commercial coffee and drinks machines, domestic under-counter systems and any other applications were water needs to be softened before consumption.
