UCM : compact membrane unit for low-cost production of demineralised water from surface water: Developed and patented by Degrémont Industry, the UCM (Compact Membrane Unit) is an innovative modular device combining the functionality of an ultrafiltration unit and an osmosis unit on a single chassis. It allows for the cost-effective use of water with a high fouling index, which is normally discarded due to its reputation as being too difficult to treat. It can reduce the salinity of treated water by over 95%. Why choose UCM? By choosing a UCM unit, you can gain extra value out of your facilities through: The use of more ecological water resources The low-cost production of demineralised water A reduction in discharges and water consumption by cleverly reusing the concentrate from the osmosis unit No chemical waste (produced by regeneration) Easy and safe use without the addition of chemical reagents (acid and soda) Compact equipment with a minimal footprint Quick and easy implementation For further information, feel free to contact us.
