    hello.
    just to let you guys know we have finished assembling our new r.o units with our own patent approved design flush valve.
    we revolutionised the marine r.o. unit trade with the flush valve but were subsequently "robbed" as others began to copy every aspect of our machine design, both locally and abroad.
    we then sat with a legal team and followed the steps required to patent anything new we add to the reefmaster range.
    we designed a new improved membrane flush valve that ensures the membrane runs at optimum working pressure and flow both during the production and flush process.
    the design was sent overseas to be manufactured and arrived in january.
    the patent was approved last week and we got the patent no's and have the go ahead to assemble our units now with the new additions to enhance performance.
    the beauty of these new upgrades is that thay are available to anyone who has a reefmaster unit aswell as a upgrade.

    we will post pics of one of the new patent parts shortly. (they are a few others to):thumbup:

    in the mean time heres the new flyers for the reefmaster evolution plus and the limited edition reemaster evolution revolution with inline T.D.S

    Looks good Marco...

    Eish, i got the very old units still running strong...What do I need to upgrade it and what would it cost..My one has the DI resin chamber aswell..

    I like the clear chamber you have there..Maybe i should pimp my R.O unit up and make all the chambers see through...

    we use the arb electrical boxes when customers have those issues.
    alternativly we know a company that manufactures polyprop boxes that you can use.
    r.o tubing is cheap though and would probably need to be replaced every 6 to 12 months if installed in the sun.

    i have mine outside in the shade running for more than 2 years now....no probs.
    guess i'll change soon cause its looking a bit old....lol

    we and our agents have tubing in white and blue

    here it is

    this is our patent part for marine r.o.units.
    it is designed to be compact aswell as extremely efficiant.
    the design lets the membrane (genuine filmtech american manufactured.... /not filmtech china) membrane to run at its optimum flow and pressure levels at time of production and flushing.

    [​IMG]

    this is a normal valve

    [​IMG]


    and this is the patent unit lined up with a normal valve aswell as our old style membrane flush system that was "copied" by people who know nothing about water purification but tried to make a buck out of selling marine r.o.units.

    [​IMG]

    as you can see the unit is alot smaller.....but what it can do for the life of your membrane (the hart of your r.o. unit is incredible)

    be sure to ask wherever you by your r.o. machines from for a filmtech / dow chemicals certificate of approval and performance.......
    if they cant produce it.........tell them have a nice day:nono:
