Drinking water from a river or a polluted well
With the very small pore sizes of the Ultra filtration membrane, BioKube ULTRA/Clean will remove all particles in the incoming water.
99,99 % of E-Coli bacteria and 100 % of Nematode will be removed. But ULTRA/Clean will not remove dissolved matter like salt and dissolved chemicals.
The Ultra CLEAN/Clean module operates by simple gravitation and it can run on solar energy.
The only power needed is to run the small air blower that keeps the membrane clean. For a 5 m3/day system that is 95 Wh/day, including power for the pump to lift the dirty water into the system.

ULTRA/Clean small and compact
The picture illustrates how small the ULTRA/Clean systems are.
The system to the left will give 5 m3 drinking water per day.
The bigger system to the right will give 110 m3 drinking water per day
ULTRA/Clean being set up for test in Ghana
The ULTRA/Clean system was tested at the BioKube Jupiter system installed at The United Nations Officers Training Center KAIPTC in Ghana.
The results from the test were as expected.
E-Coli in the effluent from the BioKube Jupiter was reduced from 465 /100 ml to 0 (nil) after passing the ULTRA/Clean
How does it work.
Drinking water from River water
- Unclean water from the source is pumped into the treatment chamber with the ULTRA/Clean module.
- The ULTRA/Clean module is kept free fromm saturation by sending air up from a diffuser under the membranes
- With simple gravitation the treated water is discharged from the outlet pipe about 15 cm above ground.
- The cleaning chamber is kept free from filling up with removed particles by automatic discharging a little water from the tank bottom a few times per day.
- A few times per year the membraned is cleaned by adding bleach into the membrane
ULTRA/Bag test the technology yourself
You can test the system and the technology with the small ULTRA/Bag.
It is the size of a standard A-4 paper.
The water coming from the ULTRA/Bag is precisely as clean as it would be from a the bigger system, ULTRA/Clean
ULTRA/Bag will deliver about 1 l/hour clean water.
The bag can be reused countless times. just regularly empty the dirty water and refill.
Certified testresults for ULTRA/Clean
BioKube performs ongoing certified test of Ultra Clean systems.
Below you will find the test results from Certified laboratories.
As the test show, the retention of E-coli from a BioKube ULTRA/Clean system is better than 99,999 %
In many of the test the count for E-coli is given as < 1 (one) per 100 ml.
Why choose BioKube?
ULTRA/Clean converts poluted water to drinking water
With ULTRA/Clean, you can convert water from a polluted well or river water to drinking water
ULTRA/Clean runs on gravitation
The only power requirement in the ULTRA/Clean to operate the air blower which keeps the membrane clean. For a 5 m3/day system that is 75 W. Plus you need to lift water into the system.
