Ultrafiltration is used for the separation of suspended solids, bacteria, virus and other solutes of high molecular weight. Ultrafiltration uses membranes with pore sizes ranging between 1 and 100nm. Contaminants of high molecular weight are filtered out by the membrane while water and low molecular weight solutes pass through the membrane.

Applications well served by Ultrafiltration

  • Wastewater Treatment
  • Food and beverage manufacturing
  • Chemical and Pharmaceutical manufacturing
  • Removal of pathogens from milk
  • Cheese manufacturing
  • Printing/Ink removal
  • Fruit juice concentration and clarification
