Industrial Ultrafiltration UF Systems
Industrial Ultrafiltration (UF) systems is a water purification process in which water is forced through a semipermeable membrane accordingly. So, suspended solids and high-molecular-weight solutes remain on one side of the membrane, the retentate side, while water and low-molecular-weight solutes filter through the membrane to the permeate side.
Thus, the pore size of ultrafiltration membranes ranges from 0.1 to 0.01 microns. But “molecular weight cut-off” (MWCO) is now one of the best ways to describe UF membranes. Hence, MWCO is the molecular weight at which 90% of a macromolecular solute does not pass through the membrane. So, UF’s range of filtration lies between microfiltration and nanofiltration.
What Is Ultrafiltration UF Systems Role in Water Treatment?
Modern membrane technology started in the late 1990s, when polymeric membrane chemistry and processing techniques began to use in membrane manufacturing. So, these new materials and manufacturing methods made UF an efficient, competitive process for water treatment.
What is advantage of idustrial ultrafiltration system?
Industrial Ultrafiltration UF Systems technology is able to do more work in 50% less space than legacy processes. Which is why UF pretreatment was chosen as standard equipment for all of CHUNKE High-Class seawater and brackish water modular desalination units consequently.
Ultrafiltration (UF) pretreatment can extend the life of reverse-osmosis membranes in the treatment of high-silt density index (SDI) waters. Meanwhile, they require lower investment, deliver reduced operating costs, use no coagulants, and require little chemical use.
Stainless steel skid-mounted ultrafiltration system units are available for a variety of uses. For example reverse osmosis (RO) pretreatment, surface water clarification, treatment of high-SDI groundwater, seawater pretreatment, arsenic removal, primary and secondary treatment of effluents for reuse, and bacteriological treatment for mineral water.
What is the difference between an ultrafiltration system and a reverse osmosis system?
An ultrafiltration system can filter the most solid particulates in fluids, but it is not able to filter out dissolved particulate like a reverse osmosis system. However, an ultrafiltration system can filter smaller particulate than a microfiltration or standard carbon filter can. So, if you want to reduce total dissolved solids (TDS), you must use reverse osmosis water purifier system. Ultrafiltration membranes are remove impurities, if the particle size is bigger than 0.01 micron.

What is the electrical power consumption of Industrial UF System?
Thus, it depends on capacity of ro water purifier plant as liter per hour or liter per day. So, our ro water treatment system power supply range is 220V to 480V with 50Hz or 60Hz.
