ULTRAFILTRATION (UF)

UF Membrane Construction:

  • It is asymmetric semi-permeable membrane made using high molecular material.
  • The hollow fiber tubes are covered by micro-pores that allow solutions flowing in/out the membranes under influence of pressure.
  • UF membranes have pore sizes from 0.1 to 0.005 µm for different applications.
  • Normally, this process is utilized in removing-
    • High molecular-weight substances
    • Colloidal materials
    • Bacteria
    • Organic/inorganic polymeric molecules
