Ultrafiltration System for University Research 5000 GPD - Chile

Product Description

Ultrafiltration is a form of filtration that uses membranes to separate different fluids or ions. This ultrafiltration system was designed for tertiary treatment of secondary wastewater (treated/clarified sewage), and came with first-rate chemical dosing systems, CIP systems, Hydranautics UF modules, Stainless steel pressure guages, and other important features. The 15 gpm system was made up of one UF module; major components consisted of a backwash tank, automatic screen filter, and a microprocessor control panel.


  • Hydranautics HYDRAcapMAX 40 UF Module
  • Chemical Enhanced Backwash
  • Differential Pressure Switch
  • Siemens S7-1200 PLC
  • Backwash Pump
  • Screen Filter
  • 150 Micron Automatic Backwash Screen Filter
  • GF Motorized Valves


Water Challenges: Water is by far the most prominent laboratory reagent, which is why its purity is of most importance. Polluted water can produce a variety of issues due to its occurrence, spanning from inaccurate data to damaged samples, or even damaged equipment and materials.



Applied Solution: Ultrafiltration System shipped to Chile for University Research - 5000 GPD. The system was designed to produce extremely high purity water with no presence of minerals that would compromise any equipment, material, or testingh in the laboratory. 



  • Superior filtration performance with high flux
  • Very small nominal pore diameter (0.03 µm)
  • Efficiently gets rid of bacteria and viruses
  • Periodically back washed and air scoured to enhance overall performance and casting off the fouling layer to extend working life
  • Low fouling membrane modules
  • UF Outside-In or Inside-Out Configuration lets in reduced plugging and greater solids loading
  • Basic, vertical, modular plan approves low cost, compact systems
  • Effective membrane cleaning has a high chemical resistance and temperature tolerance
