Purification Tanks

JFC Purification container

JFC Marine is delighted to introduce a new range of purification containers to our range of marine product solutions. 

Our products are manufactured from rotationally moulded polyethylene designed especially for marine applications. JFC Marine products are tough, impact resistant and designed to withstand harsh marine conditions.

How it Works:

Depuration (purification) is a process by which shellfish are held in tanks of clean seawater under conditions which maximise the natural filtering activity and results in the expulsion of intestinal contents.

The depuration process involves placing shellfish into a purpose made tank which is then filled with clean seawater. The seawater is mainly treated by ultraviolet (UV) disinfection, and is then recycled through the system providing optimum temperature, salinity and oxygen levels for the shellfish to function normally and expel faecal contamination.
