What is Ultrafiltration?

  1. Membrane needs to retain large molecules or colloidal particles
  2. Smaller Molecules pass through along with the water
  3. No significant Osmotic Pressure
  4. Typical Operating Pressure 10-100 PSI

Performance of UF Systems

  1. Flow across Membrane Surface
  2. Operating Pressure
  3. Operating Temperature
  4. Recovery

UF Applications

Water Treatment

Post DI

Lab media, reagents







Electrocoate paint

Emulsified oily water

Metallic colloids


Cheese whey
