Ultra-Filtration System

The Ultra-Filtration System in agriculture is a water treatment technology that plays a crucial role in improving water quality for various agricultural applications. It is primarily used to remove suspended solids, bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants from water sources, ensuring the supply of clean and safe water for irrigation, and other agricultural processes.

The Ultra-Filtration (UF) system utilizes a membrane-based filtration process to separate particles and microorganisms from water. The UF membrane has extremely small pores, typically ranging from 0.01 to 0.1 microns in size. These pores are small enough to block the passage of suspended solids, bacteria, and larger viruses while allowing water molecules and dissolved substances to pass through.

The purpose of the Ultra-Filtration System


Ultrafiltration (UF) is a membrane filtration method where hydrostatic pressure drives liquid against a semi-permeable membrane. It retains suspended solids and high molecular weight solutes, while allowing water and low molecular weight solutes to pass through. UF shares similarities with reverse osmosis, microfiltration, and nanofiltration, differing mainly in the size of molecules it retains.

Improved water quality

Membrane technology, represented by semi-permeable membranes, effectively separates substances when a driving force is applied. Originally used for desalination, membrane processes are now utilized to remove bacteria, microorganisms, particulate matter, and natural organic material. These contaminants can cause color, taste, and odor issues in water and react with disinfectants to form disinfection byproducts (DBP).

Among other Ultra-Filtration removes:

  • Endotoxins

  • Plastics

  • Proteins

  • Silica

  • Silt

  • Smog

  • Viruses
