Industries such as chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing, food and beverage processing and waste water treatment, employ ultrafiltration, or membrane filtration, in order to recycle flow or add value to later products. The main benefit of ultrafiltration (UF) is its ability to purify, separate and concentrate target macromolecules in continuous systems. UF does this by pressurizing the solution flow.
Customized Ultrafiltration Water Installations
Besco Water has a line of standard designs for UF based on our years of past experience so any specifying engineer will have a better starting point when they need to design a centralized system for a lab or research facility. Our designs are modular and can be easily customized to your project’s specs. For example, a standard system generally includes:
- Several pre-treatment steps including activated carbon filtration and water softening prior to feeding a reverse osmosis unit and a product water storage tank.
- The post-treatment steps include re-circulation pumps, mixed bed deionization tanks, ultraviolet sterilization, and sub-micron post filters.
- The entire system is skid-mounted, pre-piped, pre-wired and tested.
- The standard design produces Type II reagent grade water as set forth by ASTM and CAP standards. Other specs can also be met.
