An ultrafiltration (UF) water system is an efficient means of removing solids and particulates from your water. It is a membrane-based technology used to remove all suspended particulates in water on a microscopic level. A hollow fiber or sheet membrane is used to mechanically filter water containing very small particulates.

A hollow fibre or sheet membrane is used in the water treatment process known as ultrafiltration to mechanically filter water containing very small particulates. .

Product Description

This ultra-fine membrane technology is used in an ultrafiltration drinking water system to filter particles as small as 0.025 microns and remove all suspended solids from the water while operating on a micro level. The majority of solid particulates in fluids can be removed by an ultrafiltration system, but unlike a reverse osmosis system, it cannot remove dissolved particles. Microfiltration or conventional carbon filter cannot filter the smallest particles, but an ultrafiltration system can. Most industries and water treatment plants employ ultrafiltration systems in order to add value to their later products.



Systems for ultrafiltration functions are essentially similar to other water filtration methods. When water passes through a sediment filter, where the porosity of the filter allows it to capture particulates. Similar to a sediment filter, an ultrafiltration system applies hydrostatic pressure which forces the liquid against a semi-permeable membrane. Suspended solids and solutes of high molecular weight are retained, while water and low molecular weight solutes pass through the membrane. Usually, we also add a carbon filter to the system to get rid of suspended solids, bad taste, and odour.

Frequently Asked Question

What is the purpose of an ultrafiltration plant?

The main purpose of an ultrafiltration (UF) plant is to remove impurities and contaminants from water, such as bacteria, viruses, and dissolved substances, using a process called membrane filtration. UF is commonly used as a pretreatment step before reverse osmosis (RO) treatment.

How does an ultrafiltration plant work?

An ultrafiltration plant works by using a semi-permeable membrane to filter water. The water is forced through the membrane, which is designed to allow water molecules to pass through, but not larger impurities and contaminants. The purified water is collected on the other side of the membrane, while the impurities and contaminants are washed away and collected in a separate stream.

What are the different types of ultrafiltration plants?

There are several types of ultrafiltration plants, including hollow fiber ultrafiltration, flat sheet ultrafiltration, and tubular ultrafiltration. The specific type of ultrafiltration plant used will depend on the characteristics of the water and the desired end product.

What are the by-products of an ultrafiltration plant?

The by-products of an ultrafiltration plant are a combination of purified water and concentrate, which contains the impurities and contaminants that have been removed from the water. The purified water can be used for drinking or industrial purposes, while the concentrate is often sent for further treatment or disposal.

What are the advantages of an ultrafiltration plant?

The advantages of an ultrafiltration plant include improved water quality, reduced waterborne diseases, and reduced environmental impact
