Overview

The SafeTGard point-of-entry filtration delivers reliable water while continuously monitoring real-time operations. The self-cleaning filtration system reduces biological growth, eliminates the buildup of nutrients, and prohibits the incubation of bacteria by removing sediment, biofilm, and corrosion particulate while optimizing water quality and improving the efficacy of disinfection systems.

Risk Points

When equipment becomes plugged with bacterial-laden sediments, the contamination causes equipment failure. Equipment that utilizes the use of water is especially at risk of contamination. 
Damage caused by sediment can be extremely expensive and time consuming to repair. The following equipment is at risk of failure due to sediment buildup:

  • Boilers
  • Dialysis equipment
  • Food service equipment
  • Point-of-use filters
  • Ice machines
  • MRI/XRAY machines, and much more

Self Cleaning

The self-cleaning process flows water through the filters to pull out sediments and deposit them on coarse and fine screens. Once the build up of the deposited sediments has reached a differential of 7 PSI, a cleaning cycle is initiated where the flush valve opens to create a low-pressure path for the suction nozzles to vacuum the debris from the main flow. This completes the cleaning cycle. Once this is complete, the flush valve closes returning the system to normal operation.

LiquiTech’s self-cleaning process requires far less maintenance than other filtration technologies. Our unique process does not absorb disinfectants and uses 25% to 75% less water. Our filters can retain large numbers of organism, which protects them from becoming susceptible to breaching when the cartridge becomes plugged with bacteria-laden sediment. Our SAFETGARD filters have a duckbill check valve that prevents the cartridges from coming into contact with unsafe water or pathogen exposure.

LiquiTech’s self-cleaning process provides reliable infection prevention, and immediate water security and safety in emergency infection outbreaks.

Benefits

LiquiTech’s point-of-entry system is the most effective, efficient, and convenient method of minimizing the risk of Legionella and other waterborne pathogens. Our proven system is fail-safe, designed for ease-of-use, and highly efficient, all while maximizing safety. Our system fully operates on minimal costs and requires minimal maintenance. Strive for a fast, rapid, and efficient water filtration system with LiquiTech’s point-of-entry filtration.

  • FAST SEDIMENT REMOVAL: Filtration is completed in seconds

  • LOW OPERATION COST: No consumables required
  • HIGH-EFFICIENCY FILTRATION AND LOW WATER WASTE: Less than 0.1% of water sent to drain

  • REDUCE POTENTIAL BIOLOGICAL GROWTH: Eliminates build-up of nutrients and incubation of bacteria and biofilm

  • MINIMAL ENERGY DEMAND: Operates on water pressure alone
  • EASY MAINTENANCE: Minimal need for manual screen cleaning
  • CONTINUOUS FLOW: No service interruption during backwash

Questions

The point-of-entry system is used for controlling sediment, dirt, and corrosion particulate, which cause variability and can negatively affect disinfection levels while decreasing the life of your plumbing system and other water-using equipment.
Most forms of filtration systems have been proven to be expensive due to the high cost of consumables or wastewater production, as well as increasing the risk of bacterial growth in the filter. However, our filtration technology has mitigated these concerns. With no consumable media, an efficient hydraulic self-cleaning process, and a quick contaminant residence time, we ensure effective filtration that minimizes risk and requires minimal maintenance and operational expenditure.
Municipal water is transported through a large and aging infrastructure, which can alter water quality dynamically and unpredictably. Variations can be caused by changes in source water; seasonal events such as heavy rains; infrastructure age; hydrant use; and degradation due to time, distance, temperature and other environmental factors. These variations result in sediment and biofilm entering building water systems, which can cause large increases in operating costs related to your water infrastructure, long and short term damage to water-using equipment, and increased risk of bacteria. Systemic sediment control can be achieved effectively through point-of-entry filtration.
Yes, a point-of-entry filtration system can be installed on existing plumbing systems including on cooling towers.
