Micro & Ultra Filtration Drinking Water System

Micro & Ultra Filtration Drinking Water System

                

Ultrafiltration (UF) is a type of membrane filtration in which hydrostatic pressure forces a liquid against a semipermeable membrane. A semipermeable membrane is a thin layer of material capable of separating substances when a driving force is applied across the membrane. Once considered a viable technology only for desalination, membrane processes are increasingly employed for removal of bacteria and other microorganisms, particulate material, and natural organic material, which can impart color, tastes, and odors to the water and react with disinfectants to form disinfection byproducts (DBP).

Ultrafiltration uses hollow fibers of membrane material and the feed water flows in the shell. Suspended solids and solutes of high molecular weight are retained while water and low molecular weight solutes pass through the membrane. This separation process is used in industry and research for purifying and concentrating macromolecular (103 - 106 Da) solutions, especially protein solutions. Ultrafiltration is not fundamentally different from reverse osmosis, microfiltration or nanofiltration, except in terms of the size of the molecules it retains. When strategically combined with other purification technologies in a complete water system, UF is ideal for the removal of colloids, proteins, bacteria, pyrogens, proteins, and macromolecules larger than the membrane pore size from water.

 

Advantages

  • No need for chemicals (coagulants, flocculates, disinfectants, pH adjustment);
  • Size-exclusion filtration as opposed to media depth filtration;
  • Good and constant quality of the treated water in terms of particle and microbial removal
  • Process and plant compactness
  • Laboratory grade water purification
  • Wastewater treatment
  • Drinking water treatment
  • Paint Recovery in the automotive industry
  • Desalting and solvent exchange of proteins
  • Dialysis and other blood treatments

   Whole House Ultra Filtration Water System

The Home spring Central Water Purifier, designed and manufactured by GE Water & Process Technologies, enables the homeowner to obtain safer, better tasting water from every tap in the entire house by filtering water at the point of entry. In addition to providing an effective barrier to bacteria, parasites and viruses (please see certification and testing data for more information), this self-contained water treatment system, will distribute refreshing, crystal clear water to every tap in the home.
