Ultrafiltration water treatment
Technology for removing suspended solids, bacteria and viruses from water
Ultrafiltration water treatment: an overview
Our compact skid-mounted ultrafiltration system removes suspended solids, most bacteria and log4 viruses. The technology uses membrane filters and is most commonly used for industrial process water, borehole water and recycling/reuse water.
Water flow is directed straight through the membrane, or in a ‘cross flow’, allowing the membrane surface to filter out most colloids, enzymes, microorganisms, particles and endotoxins above their regulated sizes.
Ultrafiltration technology uses membrane filters with pore sizes of typically 1 to 10 nm, ensuring that it can remove particles as small as protein macromolecules.
Ultrafiltration technology benefits
This technology is excellent for ensuring consistent and pure water quality.
- No chemicals are used in the process other than for cleaning the membrane
- Sustainable: efficient system operation limits energy usage
- A regular high-speed flush can extend the lifespan of the system
