Ultrafiltration: Common Industrial Applications and Uses

The ultrafiltration market is growing rapidly—and for good reason. With a list of benefits including energy efficiency, consistent water quality, high recovery rates, a small footprint, and little to no chemical use, it’s no wonder that the use of ultrafiltration is growing across all industrial sectors. Here, we’ll take a look at the importance of … » Read More

What is ultrafiltration and how does it work?

Ultrafiltration has been around in concept for over a century, but it has only just come into broad use within the last few decades as advances in the technology have made it more cost-effective. Analysts are expecting that the ultrafiltration market will continue to show strong growth over the next several years, with rising demand … » Read More

Do You Need a Microfiltration or Ultrafiltration Membrane System for Your Plant?

  Determining whether or not an industrial plant needs a microfiltration (MF) and/or ultrafiltration (UF) membrane system isn’t always as straightforward as it seems. While these systems are not essential for every industrial process, when thoughtfully implemented within an intake, process, or waste stream, they can go a long way in improving a facility’s efficiency … » Read More

How to Choose the Best Microfiltration and Ultrafiltration Systems for Your Facility

  Microfiltration (MF) and Ultrafiltration (UF) are used to separate, fractionate, clarify, and purify process streams for a variety of industrial applications. MF and UF systems are used widely across the dairy, food and beverage, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and automotive industries, and recent advances in filtration membrane technology and module design have made MF/UF increasingly cost-effective … » Read More

How Much Do Microfiltration and Ultrafiltration Membrane Systems Cost?

    Microfiltration and ultrafiltration (MF/UF) membrane systems are used in a variety of processes and applications. They can help facilities treat boiler feed water, separate out contaminated waste to acceptable effluent standards, and manufacture safe food and/or beverages, to name a few. If your facility might require MF/UF membrane system technology, you are likely wondering, “How … » Read More

What are Microfiltration and Ultrafiltration and How Do They Work?

Microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF) solve a variety of process liquid treatment and purification needs, generally with low operational costs and a small footprint. MF and UF are typically incorporated within a larger treatment process, and, when used to pretreat process streams, MF/UF systems are particularly effective at preventing costly fouling of downstream equipment, such … » Read More

Microfiltration and Ultrafiltration Membrane Systems: Common Problems and How to Fix Them

  Microfiltration (MF) and Ultrafiltration (UF) are membrane-based filtering technologies that use thin layers of semipermeable material to separate out contaminating particles, such as organic material, bacteria, suspended solids, and other pollutants. In industries such and dairy, pharmaceutical, and chemical, the separated material may be a product they are recovering, and more facilities continue to … » Read More

Microfiltration vs Ultrafiltration Processes: What is the Difference?

  Microfiltration (MF) and ultrafiltration (UF) are both processes by which a contaminated liquid is passed through a semipermeable membrane that removes solids too large to fit through the membrane’s pore size, yielding a purified liquid stream. To what degree the stream is purified depends on the contaminants present and the pore size of the … » Read More

What Are the Best Companies for Microfiltration and Ultrafiltration Membrane Systems?

  Whether you are looking for a microfiltration or ultrafiltration (MF/UF) membrane system that will help your facility manufacture safe food and/or beverages, boiler feed water for industrial process, or treat contaminated waste to acceptable effluent standards, it can be overwhelming to search for the MF/UF membrane system that is ideal for your specific application. … » Read More
