UltraFiltration UF

UltrafiltrationIt is a pressure-effect membrane separation technique used to separate colloidal silica and high molecular weight soluble substances from solutions.

Ultrafiltration It works on the principle of separation by size, substances larger than the pore size corresponding to the molecular weight cut off (MWCO) of the membrane remain in the membrane, while small particles can pass through. MWCO is a measure of the pore size of the membrane. The UF molecular weight subsection is between 0.1 and 0.0001 µm, and it is on these values that the UF membrane's ability to do the difficult job of retaining of macro-solutes (polyethylene glycol, dextran or protein) is based. However, it should be noted that there is no international standard for MWCO and the MWCO rankings of different manufacturers should not be directly compared with each other. Since factors such as the shape of the substances (spherical, linear, etc.) and operating conditions will change the effectiveness of the membranes in removing some special substances. MWCO The 0 does not indicate removal.

UltrafiltrationIt can be used in a wide and diverse range of applications, such as concentration of proteins, recovery of electroplating paints, purification of bottled water, purification of oily waters, purification of blood and RO pre-treatment.

SoleChem Chemistry aspect, UF performance enhancing coagulants we supply. Thanks to the coagulants we have determined for the UF system;

  • The efficiency of the system is increased
  • Prolongs the life of the membranes.
  • The operating time of the system is increased.
