Ultrafiltration Plant is used in both pretreatment and post treatment of water. At Bionics Advanced Filtration Systems, we manufacture and install custom made ultrafiltration Water systems (UF Systems) up to 100m3/hr, units can be semi or fully programmable and PLC controlled. These are extensively used in industrial water and wastewater treatment applications. These units are next generation equipment, designed to minimize investment cost and maximize performance meeting stringent environmental protection requirements.
Using DOW™ hollow-fiber Ultrafiltration Membranes, we can engineer ultrafiltration package system, ultrafiltration pilot plant and turnkey Ultrafiltration plant for Low (< 5 NTU), Medium (< 20 NTU) and High (< 50 NTU) turbidities. Our standard series of Ultrafiltration systems are modular units fixed on a skid frame (Powder coated MS or SS) fitted with inlet and outlet and product water connections. There are various optional components are available on request that can added as per clients' requirements.
Ultrafiltration System Applications
|Packaged drinking water||Surface water filtration|
|RO feed water||Waste water recycle|
|Latex paint wastewater treatment||Oil removal / Oil refining process|
|Petrochemical waste water treatment||Dialysis machine|
|Municipal water||Effluent recycle|
Ultrafiltration is another type of membrane filtration, which is pressure driven water filtration process. In ultrafiltration process membrane pore size plays important role; feed water is pressed into modules through pump, depending upon the pore size of membranes contaminants are rejected and filtered water is taken out in storage tank or further sent as ro feed water.
In water treatment, ultrafiltration is utilized in two different operational modes such as Dead-End and Cross-Flow. In Dead-End ultrafiltration process, without circulation overall quantity of feed water is pressed through the membrane module; whereas, in Cross-Flow process the feed water passes parallel to the membrane face, one part is passed through membrane and other part is re-circulated to create turbulences over the membrane.
Ultrafiltration is considered more effective as compared to traditional water filtration. An ultrafiltration system is used in turbidity removal; in addition, it also removes bacteria, virus, microorganisms, particulate material, and natural organic materials from the water.
