It is a cross flow (Tangential Flow) filtration process, which removes particles, colloids, bacteria & progeny from water. UF membranes are available ins spiral wound as well as in Hollow Fiber. It is available 10,000 Daltons to 3,00,000 Daltons. NMWL (Nominal molecular weight limit)
UF removes bacteria as well as progeny (10000 Daltons) from DM water, which is used for washing, solution preparation and much other application for pharmaceutical industries. UF requires skid, centrifugal monoblock pump and necessary piping for permeate, reject of the membrane.
