Ultrafiltration is used to remove essentially all colloidal particles (0.001 to 1.0 microns) from water and some of the largest dissolved contaminants. The pore size in a UF membrane is mainly responsible for determining the type and size of contaminants removed. In general, membrane pores range in size from 0.005 to 0.1 micron.
Ultrafiltration is used in:
• 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.
