ULTRA FILTRATION SYSTEMS

Ultra Filtration Systems

This method is used in ultra filtration of high grade raw material and membrane based technology. They are used in various industries for separation of higher molecular weight particles from water. These require low maintenance and are highly appreciated for long service life. We manufacture as per the customer requirement and available at affordable prices. These products are designed by employing latest technology and advanced machinery, at our sophisticated infrastructure.
Some of the quality attributes of these products are as follows:
  • Durable standards
  • Efficient functioning
  • Require less maintenance
FlowMax design and build tailor-made ultrafiltration plants.

Our UF plants are build with hollow fiber outside-in membranes, up to 100 m3/h, to purify surface or groundwater from suspended solids, colloids and all kind of micro-organisms such as bacteria, virus, protozoa, germs and larvae.

Ultrafiltration is also commonly use as a Reverse Osmosis plant pretreatment

Ultrafiltration (UF) is a variety of membrane filtration in which forces like pressure or concentration gradients lead to a separation through a semipermeable membrane. Suspended solids and solutes of high molecular weight are retained in the so-called retentate, while water and low molecular weight solutes pass through the membrane in the filtrate. This separation process is used in industry and research for purifying and concentrating macromolecular (103 - 106 Da) solutions, especially protein solutions. Ultrafiltration is not fundamentally different from microfiltration. Both of these separate based on size exclusion or particle capture. It is fundamentally different from membrane gas separation, which separate based on different amounts of absorption and different rates of diffusion. Ultrafiltration membranes are defined by the molecular weight cut-off (MWCO) of the membrane used.

UF processes are currently preferred over traditional treatment methods for the following reasons:

• No chemicals required (aside from cleaning) • Constant product quality regardless of feed quality • Compact plant size • Capable of exceeding regulatory standards of water quality, achieving 90-100% pathogen removal. Protein concentration. UF is used extensively in the dairy industry; particularly in the processing of cheese whey to obtain whey protein concentrate (WPC) and lactose-rich permeate. Compared to traditional methods, UF processes used for this application: Are more energy efficient • Have consistent product quality, 35-80% protein product depending on operating conditions. A selectively permeable membrane can be mounted in a centrifuge tube. The buffer is forced through the membrane by centrifugation, leaving the protein in the upper chamber. Other applications • Filtration of effluent from paper pulp mill • Cheese manufacture, see ultrafiltered milk • Removal of pathogens from milk • Process and waste water treatment • Enzyme recovery • Fruit juice concentration and clarification • Dialysis and other blood treatments • Desalting and solvent-exchange of proteins (via diafiltration) • Laboratory grade manufacturing
