Ultrafiltration or UF is a pressure driven membrane separation process that separates particulate matter from soluble components in the carrier fluid (such as water). UF membranes typically have pore sizes in the range of 0.01 - 0.10 µm and have a high removal efficiency for bacteria and most viruses, colloids and silt (SDI), the smaller the nominal pore size, the higher the removal efficiency. Most materials that are used in UF are polymeric and are naturally hydrophobic. Common polymeric materials used in UF include: Polysulfone (PS), Polyethersulfone (PES), Polypropylene (PP), or Polyvinylidenefluoride (PVDF). Although these materials can be blended with hydrophilic agents, the hydrophilic additives can reduce the membranes ability to be cleaned with strong levels of disinfectants such as peroxide or hypochlorite to sufficiently remove bacterial growth.

The modular design ensures that the capacity to suit a client's requirement and it can be easily installed. The unit has very low energy consumption and does not require continuous inspection.
