By incorporating original design features in its breakthrough M-600 Ultra-Clean Water System, Sylvan Source has created a highly efficient and maintenance-free water treatment system for cooking and drinking that satisfies stringent water certification requirements.
The Sylvan Source M-600 Ultra-Clean Water System - the first of its kind in the market - was developed to provide high-quality, reliable, and safe drinking water that does not require the mandatory system maintenance.
The system combines specialized degassing, distilling, and demisting technologies followed by condensation, which reduces contaminants more effectively than other commercial technologies or products. It requires no filters, membranes, chemicals, or cleaning, vaporizes volatile gases and liquids, and prevents contamination carryover.
Another distinguishing feature of the M-600 Ultra-Clean Water System is its treatment efficiency. Traditionally, reverse osmosis systems recover only 5 to 15 percent of the water entering the system and the remaining is discharged as wastewater. The Sylvan Source M-600, on the other hand, yields close to 70 percent of clean water for every gallon of water treated.
"Moreover, the Sylvan Source M-600 Ultra-Clean Water System is capable of handling a variety of feed water quality without the need for pre-filtration," says Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Renee Chu. "This is because the M-600 does not involve the use of any membrane or filter media, eliminating the need for feed water pre-filtration that could result in filter fouling."
The Sylvan Source M-600 Ultra-Clean Water System offers numerous advantages over its competitors. Not only does it ensure drinking water quality by eliminating the guesswork involved in filter replacement frequencies, it is also equipped with a self-cleaning mechanism. This built-in, patent pending mechanism cleans the floor of the boiling chamber and keeps the scale in suspension so that they will not harden.
Sylvan Source is actively partnering with the world-renowned National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) to seek independent product claims validation. This has resulted in the certification of the Sylvan Source M-600 to the NSF/ANSI 62 Standard for Distillation, for the specific performance claims listed on the Sylvan Source product data sheet. In addition to the NSF standard, the Sylvan Source M-600 has also received certification and approval from five other U.S. organizations that validate product safety and health claims.
"By partnering with home builders to showcase the high-tech Sylvan Source M-600 Ultra-Clean Water System as a standard offering in homebuilding projects across North America, Sylvan Source is committed to delivering an innovative solution to the growing problem of assuring ultra-clean drinking water in the home," notes Chu. "Simple installation requirements, as well as the proven reliability and maintenance-free feature of the system allow homebuilders to recommend it to homebuyers with confidence."
