Low-pressure membrane technology for separation, concentration and purification of dissolved molecules
A versatile and economical solution for clarification, concentration and purification of liquids, ultrafiltration (UF) is a process that removes emulsified oils, metal hydroxides, colloids, bacteria and viruses, emulsions, dispersed material, suspended solids, and other large molecular weight materials from water and other solutions.
UF also serves in critical parts of the production processes of fruit juice, milk and whey, electrocoat paints, pharmaceuticals, poly-vinyl alcohol and indigo dye. It is key to surface water treatment for potable uses and wastewater treatment for reuse. UF membranes are characterized by their molecular weight cut-off (MWCO), ranging from 3,000 to 500,000 Daltons.
