Some of the most versatile and durable treatment systems on the market utilize UF technology. The many different molecular weight spectrums the technology can handle is what makes it so appealing to a number of industries. Few mechanical separation technologies utilizing microporous substrate that can successfully separate oil from water and still remain effective and cleanable, Ultrafiltration can. High Grit waste water, as well as water with oils contamination can successful be treated and recycled using LT Technologies UF systems. With many installation successes we are a leading in UF technology development and implementation.
Tubular Ultrafiltration Membranes provide excellent capabilities for filtering and concentrating difficult process water and waste streams. Tubular membrane filters feature a wide center channel design, and can handle high concentrations of suspended solids with ease, allowing the passage of even large solids without plugging your system. The ability to handle feed streams with widely varying compositions and characteristics makes these reliable, long-lasting membranes and excellent replacements in nearly any existing in-plant system. Ultrafiltration tubular membranes concentrate oily wastewater, Latex and juice and pulp.

Hollow fiber cartridges operate from the inside to the outside during filtration. This means that process fluid (retentate) flows through the center of the hollow fiber and permeate passes through the fiber wall to the outside of the membrane fiber. Tangential flow can help limit membrane fouling. Other operating techniques that can be employed with hollow fiber membrane systems include back flushing with permeate and retentate reverse flow.

Spiral wound construction makes use of flat sheet membrane, which is an organic polymeric membrane cast onto a support fabric. The flat sheet membrane is enclosed between layers of feed spacer and permeate carrier materials, forming a leaf. Multiple leaves are rolled into a cylinder, and attached to a permeate tube. Spiral wound construction allows the membrane to perform filtration duties only, there are no structural component requirements imposed on the membrane. Spiral construction uses the support fabric, feed spacer and permeate carrier to encase the membrane, providing support much like a reverse osmosis membrane.
