Ultrafiltration is abbreviated to UF. Just like reverse osmosis, it is a membrane-based filtration process. In this process, the device uses hydrostatic pressure in order to pass water through a type of semi-permeable membrane. Generally, the pore size of this membrane is between 103 and 106 Daltons. Generally, ultra purification is a pressure-based barrier in order to suspend different types of elements, such as viruses, bacteria, solids, endotoxins, and other types of pathogens. As a result, the filtered water becomes pure. Let’s find out more about it.
Basically, a membrane is a thin layer of a special type of material that can help separate substances in response to a driving force. Therefore, they can help remove different types of microorganisms, such as bacteria, organic matter, and particulate material. Therefore, the filtered water becomes better in taste and color.
Generally, ultrafiltration is an ideal choice for the removal of a variety of colloidal particles from your tap water. Apart from this, they can also help remove big dissolved contaminants. Based on the type of membrane, you can remove contaminants of different sizes.
With a molecular weight of 100k daltons, the size of membranes is between 0.05 and 0.08 microns. In most cases, these membranes are employed when you need to remove all types of colloidal particles. The thing is that the majority of dissolved solids can go through the membrane with no problems.
