What is Ultrafiltration?
Ultrafiltration is the process of purifying the water that is force through semipermeable. This method is use to remove the pathogens contained in the water. This process improves the water quality without adding any chemicals except cleaning membranes. This ultrafiltration process cleans the surface water into drinking water without reducing its characteristics. This process helps to reuse the unwanted surface water and seawater for daily purposes. This ultrafiltration works in all types of plants, and it is compact. Using this method, you can save energy and maintain water quality to specific water use. This purification method can separate the power depending on the usage. Here you can see different types of ultrafiltration processes. These types are used to satisfy the customer’s needs. Let’s see the kinds of ultrafiltration in short.
Types of ultrafiltration
- Whole house ultrafiltration systems – This system is a point of entry water filtration system. This process serves water to the entire home.
- Under sink ultrafiltration system – This membrane filter is top-rated for home purposes. This provides a filtration process at a budget price.
- Smart under sink UF system – This system is similar to the RO purifier system. It takes multi-stage filters and has an intelligent indication system in the front panel.
- Under sink inline ultrafiltration water filter – this type takes all in one design in different filter materials. It works together in one composite filter to eliminate the harmful substance.
How an Ultrafiltration Membrane Works
This ultrafiltration method works like a standard filtration system. Water flows through the sediment filters that capture particulate with the porosity of the filter. This ultrafiltration uses 0.025microm filters which are more than the standard sediment filter. The ultrafiltration systems are classified into two types: point of use and effectiveness of entry. Those are typically used for under-the-counter drinking water systems in the point-of-use method. The point of entry method is generally used to run water for applications that do not require water to filter as fine.
Advantages of Ultrafiltration Membrane
There are some advantages hidden in using the ultrafiltration process. This process is more beneficial for all types of people and companies. Let’s see about the benefits.
- This filtration process requires higher pressure than the manual filtration process.
- It consumes less energy when compared to Nano filtration or reverses osmosis.
- This ultra-filtration process does its work automatically, so a minimum number of persons is required to complete this job.
- The filtration processes fully clear the bacterial infection in the water. This process also helps to remove the viruses, colloids, phages and macromolecules.
- The cost of this process is relatively cheap compared to other types of filtration processes. It also provides the best quality result in the purification method.
- This ultrafiltration provides a good permeate yield depending on the supply of water and membrane choice.
