Ultrafiltration - versatile membrane technology
Ultrafiltration is used in many different areas and industrial sectors for wastewater and water treatment. EnviroChemie is your partner for reliable solutions for sustainable water treatment using Envopur® ultrafiltration processes.
To list a few examples, this special membrane technology is used to retain biomass, can extend the service life of degreasing baths, is applied in the recycling processes for wastewater that is created by vibratory finishing, and splits oil/water emulsions, such as compressor condensate. These are just a few applications, in which Envopur® ultrafiltration processes bring water management cycles full circle efficiently and ecologically.
Unique features of ultrafiltration
Ultrafiltration generally differs from microfiltration in terms of the pore size of the membrane that is used in the modules. The pores of the membrane measures less than 0.1 µm and are therefore smaller than those used in microfiltration, however they are larger than those used in nanofiltration.
Another additional distinct feature of the ultrafiltration membranes is their asymmetric structure. The membrane is made up of a release layer with pores in the submicron area and a porous support layer that is solely used for support. The membranes used in microfiltration on the other hand are symmetrical and porous, meaning the width of the pores in the membranes does not vary.
The processes developed by EnviroChemie for Envopur® ultrafiltration have been designed in a way that properly separates the captured contaminants through the filtration membrane and delivers optimum results for you in terms of wastewater and industrial water treatment.
