Introduction to UF Filtration Equipment

Working Principle of UF Filtration Equipment

UF filtration is a membrane separation process that uses screening as the separation principle and pressure as the driving force. Its filtration accuracy is within the range of 0.005-0.01 μm, and it can effectively remove particles, colloids, bacteria, heat sources, and high molecular organic substances in water. UF systems can be widely used for the separation, concentration, and purification of substances.

The UF process involves no phase change and can be operated at room temperature. It is particularly suitable for the separation of heat-sensitive substances and has good temperature resistance, acid-alkali resistance, and oxidation resistance. This equipment can also be used continuously for long periods of time under conditions of pH 2-11 at temperatures below 60°C.

Development of UF Technology

UF equipment has been applied in industrial wastewater and sewage treatment for a long time, and with the continuous improvement of UF technology. In the early days, industrial UF was mainly applied in wastewater and sewage treatment. Over the years, with the development of UF technology, UF technology has now been applied in many fields. These include areas such as food and beverage production, cosmetic water, drinking water, pharmaceuticals and chemicals, and treatment of printing and dyeing wastewater.

  1. The UF membrane elements use products from world-renowned membrane companies, ensuring customers receive the highest quality organic membrane elements available in the world, thereby ensuring retention performance and membrane flux.
  2. The system has a high recovery rate, produces high-quality products, and can achieve efficient separation, purification, and high-multiple concentration of materials.
  3. The processing does not involve any phase changes and has no adverse effects on the composition of materials, and the separation, purification, and concentration processes are always carried out at room temperature, making it especially suitable for processing heat-sensitive materials. This process completely avoids the drawbacks of high-temperature damage to biologically active substances and effectively preserves the biologically active substances and nutrients in the original material system.
  4. The system has low energy consumption and short production cycles. Compared with traditional process equipment, the operating costs of the equipment are low, which can effectively reduce production costs and improve the economic benefits of enterprises.
  5. The system has advanced process design, a high degree of integration, a compact structure, a small footprint, easy operation and maintenance, and low labor intensity for workers.
  6. The system uses sanitary-grade pipes and valves and is clean and hygienic on-site, meeting GMP or FDA production specifications.
  7. The control system can be personalized according to the specific needs of the user. Combined with advanced control software, it can monitor important process operation parameters on site, avoid manual errors, and ensure the long-term stable operation of the system.
  8. Due to the high efficiency of material separation, purification, and efficient concentration, as well as its wide range of applications, UF equipment has been recognized and used by a large number of customers.
