Pre-Ultra Filtration System

Type: Cross Flow / Dead End Filtration System

Purpose: Removal of Colloidal, TOC, Microbial impurity from Feed water to the system.

Process Description

Ultra Filtration is a pressure-driven membrane separation process that helps removes particulate matter from aqueous solutions such as water. The membranes in Ultra Filtration Systems typically have pore sizes in the range of 0.01 to 0.10 μm and efficiently remove bacteria and most viruses, colloids and silt. The smaller the nominal pore size, the higher the removal efficiency.

Working Principle

Ultra filtration is a pressure-driven purification process in which water and low molecular weight substances permeate a membrane while particles, colloids, and macro molecules are retained. The primary removal mechanism is size exclusion, although the electrical charge and surface chemistry of the particles or membrane may affect the purification efficiency. Ultra filtration pore ratings range from approximately 1,000 to 500,000 Daltons.

As a result, UF membranes are typically arranged in a configuration which maximizes surface area and reduces fouling by using a tangential flow design to reduce solute accumulation at the membrane surface. Tangential flow UF devices may be spiral-wound cartridges containing several square feet of membrane wrapped onto a central core tube or hollow-fiber cartridges containing dozens of thin UF membrane fibers.
