Aqualine - Ultra Filtration Systems
Aqualine ultrafiltration Units are basically a filtration process. UF uses membranes with a pore size of 0.01 micron and this acts as a barrier for bacteria, virus and other micro organisms without using chemicals. Any particle greater than 0.01 microns will be removed and turbidity can be reduced to below 0.1 NTU. Chlorine is the best known method for removing microbiological contamination from water and it is effective, though not 100%, particularly for spore forming organisms such as Cryptosporidia.
Such organisms can resist treatment with Chlorine but are removed by UF. In addition organic compounds in water can react with chlorine to form DBP’s (disinfectant by products) which can be toxic themselves. UF does not add anything to water and does not produce undesirable chemicals in the water. UF modules are perfect for filtration of surface water, pre-treatment of sea water before RO desalination, treatment of recycled waste water and can replace conventional and biological treatment of water for feed to RO systems.
Moreover UF systems are used successfully for sea water treatment, food sector and beverage process, natural drinking water factories, removing bacteria and disinfection of water indirectly and lots of special projects. It constitutes a key part of systems of special design for waste water recycling and process of recycling of water origin MBR.
