Ultrafiltration (Membrane Filtration)

Barrier 1

Advanced water purification is achieved using a series of barriers to remove or destroy unwanted contaminants in the treated water. This barrier blocks particles, bacteria, and protozoa from passing through the membrane fibers. After MF, we monitor the water before it goes to the next barrier.

Did You Know?

Contaminant removal by physical barriers like filtration is described in terms of microns, or one millionth of a meter or 1/25,400 of an inch. The pores in an MF process are between 0.1 and 0.02 microns, much smaller than bacteria and protozoa, typically 1 - 10 microns in size. This is smaller than a human hair.
