Ultrafiltration (UF) is a highly efficient way to remove suspended solids, endotoxins, bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens from feed water for the production of high-purity water with a low silt density index (SDI).
Ultrafiltration is used as a pretreatment for surface water, seawater, groundwater, biologically treated effluent, and to prepare water for further treatment with membrane demineralization systems such as nanofiltration and reverse osmosis.
Fluence has decades of experience in designing, manufacturing, erecting, and servicing ultrafiltration systems for a wide range of applications, including:
Reverse osmosis (RO) pretreatment
Surface water clarification
Groundwater with high SDI
Primary and secondary treatment of effluents for reuse
Bacteriological treatment for mineral water
Improving Water Quality
Ultrafiltration provides a constant water quality, regardless of the feed water’s total suspended solids (TSS). It reduces organic matter by between 50 and 90%, and with the addition of coagulants, it can be used for arsenic removal. It also efficiently removes pathogens.
