Ultrafiltration System

Ultrafiltration (UF) and Reverse Osmosis (RO) are both membrane-based, pressure-driven separation processes. UF utilizes a filter media composed of UF membranes, available in configurations such as flat type, tubular type, and hollow fiber type. The UF process operates based on the size of its pores, which range between 0.001 to 0.1 micrometers, fitting between the pore sizes of RO and Microfiltration (MF). This pore size range enables UF to effectively separate substances at a molecular level, making it suitable for various applications including water treatment and purification.

The RO Water 5-stage UF System
The Ro Water UF System is an ideal solution for those seeking basic yet efficient water filtration without any wastewater. The system incorporates a sequence of filtration stages designed to optimize water purity:

  1. Pre-treatment Filters:
    • Sediment Filter: Captures floating particles like dust, rust, and sand.
    • Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) Filter: Targets chemicals, bad tastes, and odors, including chlorine and various organic compounds.
    • Carbon Block Filter: Enhances the removal of any remaining suspended particles, chemicals, or odors missed by previous filters.
  2. Ultrafiltration Membrane:
    • This core component filters down to 0.2 microns, efficiently removing microplastics, silt, bacteria, and parasites.
  3. Activated Carbon Polishing Filter:
    • Serves as an additional stage to refine water taste by removing any residual odors or flavors, ensuring that the water delivered to your tap is of the highest quality.

What Doesn't the Ultrafiltration System Remove?

  • Dissolved Minerals: Such as those found in brackish water, which contribute to taste issues.
  • Hardness: The system does not soften hard water. This typically requires a softening resin cartridge or reverse osmosis, which can shorten the lifespan of the RO membrane.

System Features and Benefits

  • No Waste Water: An eco-friendly system that doesn't produce wastewater.
  • Low Operating Pressure: Functions effectively with a minimum pressure of 1 bar, making it suitable for low-pressure environments.
  • Maintenance and Value: Requires no power, ensuring low maintenance costs and high efficiency.
  • Compact Design: Offers superior filtration and higher flow rates compared to similar-sized RO units. It does not require an additional storage tank, making it more compact.
  • Standardized Filters: Utilizes industry-standard 10-inch slimline filters, commonly available at most hardware stores, facilitating easy replacements.

The RO Water 5-stage UF system not only meets the essential needs of effective water filtration but also addresses space and maintenance concerns, making it a preferable choice for quality-conscious consumers.
