What is Ultrafiltration?
Ultrafiltration is a membrane filtration process that utilizes pressure to separate particulate matter from soluble components in water.
How it Works
The ultrafiltration membranes act as semi-permeable barriers that allow particles to be captured or pass through, based on the pore size. Suspended solids and dissolved substances of high molecular weight in feed water are retained by the membrane, while water and low molecular weight substances pass through the membrane as product water. Self-cleaning and periodic chemical rinses keep membranes functioning at transmembrane pressure (TMP) design levels.
