Ultrafiltration

Ultra filtration is a pressure-dependent process which removes dissolved solids and other substances from water, but to a lesser extend than nanofiltration and reverse osmosis. The pores of ultra filtration membranes can remove particles of 0.001 – 0.1 µm from fluids.

Ultrafiltration is mainly used for water pre-treatment processes.
