Uniquely Designed Non-Electric Kent UF Water Purifiers

Kent Inline GOLD UF Water Purifier Review and Specifications

In this exclusive budget purifier review article, I discuss two new products by Indian brand Kent that promises to purify water up to 99.999% percent using the UF technology, a certified trusted technology by government labs. The great asset of these products are – they purify water for an entire family for a whole year on minimum maintenance cost, effectively just 600 Rupees, this is what manufacturer Kent claims.

Service Warranty and service quality on-ground

Kent offers one-year onsite warranty for these UF purifiers. And under the warranty commitment, Kent will repair critical components only. And, if repairing does not solve problems, they will be replaced free of cost. This is according to Kent promises under warranty terms.

However, there are lots of disparity between Kent’s promise and its delivery on-ground. Our website has received many claims that expose how poorly Kent service team handles customer’s issue. I, therefore, advocate here to use email to register your complaint. Using email gives you upper hand because it becomes natural evidence in case Kent mishandles your complaint.

Low Maintenance cost

Kent claims – while other water puffier brands charge 600 Rupees per filter that will hardly last three to four months meaning three to four filter a year, Kent UF based purifiers require just one or two filters a year. This means Kent UF-based purifier could save close 1000 to 1500 rupees per year.

I am sure you will have the question that how true is Kent’s claim on filter life. I cannot confirm for UF-based purifier but I am using Kent’s Pearl mineral water purifier and I satisfied with the filter life so far has been. Furthermore, Kent customers have concern over service quality but they never question filter life. Thus I can read this as Kent is true to its claim on filter life. But this is just my opinion. If you think my assessment is wrong, you could comment on this article and educate me and others.

Innovative UF Technology

Kent’s Hollow Fiber UF membrane is the hero of its new set of UF purifier. Pores on the innovative membrane are very small. As tree roots absorber earth water and purifier them for safe human consumption, Kent membrane is designed to achieve water quality close to that.

Among all the popular water purifier technologies namely RO, UV, UF – UF happens to be the most efficient if the water has low TDS level. By the way, Bhabha automatic research center is also working on a new advanced technology called NF (nano-filtration membrane). The NF membrane will improve purification efficiency of water purifiers.

Kent and other water purifier companies bear research and development cost for the further development of the current technology to achieve a better result on water quality. And, this makes a big difference. It proves thus there is a difference between Kent’s UF membrane and UF membrane of other companies. Understand this with the quality difference of 1000 mAh battery on a Nokia phone and on a Micromax phone.

Kent Crystal UF Water Purifier Review and Specifications

Kent Crystal UF Water Purifier 

Before I proceed with the purifier details, you must know it requires a base in the form of water dispenser or something similar for installation. It is not like other Kent UF water purifiers, which have a water tank with a base for simple table top installation.

The Crystal model comes with 20 liters tank capacity: 7 liters raw water and 13 liters purified water. The mechanism inside could purify 20 liters water per hour. As Kent claims, due to a unique design of the filters, their life capacity is close to 4000 liters. This figure is incredible citing – filters by other purifier brands would be dead within two to three months after purifying 1200 to 1500 liters water.

Because of the use of food grade material, build quality of this Kent product is hygienic and sturdy too.

Talking about purification process offered by this non-electric purifier, it comes with three effective filters and it is based on UF technology. The three filters sediment, activated carbon, and SS Mesh are efficient enough for making water close to 100% safe. But remember this is only for purified water that has been through the stage one purification (RO system).

The Kent Crystal is a decent product but in terms of use, it is quite limited – designed for a certain kind of requirement. I never saw a water dispenser in domestic use. So it is not a product for home use. However, it could be a well-recommended assistance for drinking water installations at School, college, library and other public places.

The purifier though sounds not so innovative, but in terms of design, it is a master stroke. In fact, it is a product one of kind that has no clear competitor at present.

A popular review article on the first batch of Kent gravity based UF purifier is already live on this website. And, I can clearly underline this model takes qualities of those models with better efficiency.

I think Kent has been wise enough to tap the potential of an untapped market so far. I like this UF purifier, its design and purification technology and different capacities as well. But remember, it is not well-suited for home use as it requires an installation base.

Kent Inline GOLD UF Water Purifier

The Gold UF water purifier is based on the same set of filters and design as other gravity based purifiers by Kent up for sale currently. Design-wise, however, it is different from the model we discuss above, the purifier requires wall mount installation. Thus it is not designed for table top setup. It, therefore, is not suitable for those who frequently change house.

Much like other non-electric UF purifiers of Kent, this too is for purifying low TDS water, effectively corporation water. Its purification mechanism consists of sediment and Carbon Block filter with UF membrane for suspending virus, bacteria, and cysts from water.

Build quality of this is certainly A-grade. According to Kent, while designing this batch of gravity based purifier there has been special attention on leaking issue, reported with earlier products. Use of PUSH-Fit component will keep this model and other models in the batch leakage proof despite heavy usages.

Kent Inline GOLD UF Water Purifier Review and Specifications

The storage tank capacity of Kent Inline is 7 liters. Its purification per hour is close to 60 liters per hour (inlet pressure is a factor here) and duty cycle per day is 75 liters.

While deciding on water purifier, it is very import that you are clear on your requirement. Before blaming the product you purchased – think have you made a right purchase? Take an example of this product, Kent clearly says it requires wall-mount installation, suitable for low TDS water, and does not remove dissolved salts from water. If the water supply in your home has a salty taste, this is not a purifier you should buy. It is based on UF technology so it fights with harmful battery, virus, and cysts. Try purifying salty water through this Kent Marvel, it will make the water safe for drinking but the salty taste will stay. So what is the solution of treating salty water? Use RO purifier with support to high TDS levels.
