Domestic water purifiers ( Ultra Filtration water system) In Kenya
Ultra Filtration Water Purifier device is a very important component for households and business in whichever area where staff, general workers or family members purify and consumer water with the domestic water purifier improving consumption water safety. In Kenya, varios models of domestic water purifiers are available in the market, with leading suppliers such as Neema technologies offering various models and specifications of the purifiers.
An ultrafiltration (UF) water system is an efficient means of removing solids and particulate from your water. Ultrafiltration systems remove all suspended particulate in water on a microscopic level. John Woodard, our Master Water Specialist, answers your frequently asked questions about ultrafiltration.
What is an ultrafiltration system?
Ultrafiltration is a water treatment process that uses a hollow fiber or a sheet membrane to mechanically filter water containing very small particulate. An ultrafiltration drinking water system uses this super fine membrane technology to filter particulate down to 0.025 microns. To help you get an idea just how small that is, the diameter of a human hair is typically about 75-80 microns. This means that an ultrafiltration system works on a micro level, literally taking all suspended solids out of the water.
How does an ultrafiltration system work?
Ultrafiltration systems work almost like any other water filtration system. In a sediment filter, water flows through and captures particulate with the porosity of the filter. An ultrafiltration system works in the same way except that it filters anything larger than 0.025 micron, which is much more than your average sediment filter. Typically, we put a carbon filter on the system too to remove bad taste and odor along with suspended solids.
There are two main types of ultrafiltration systems.
Point-of-use: These are typically used for under-the-counter drinking water systems.
Point-of-entry: These are typically used to run water for applications that do not require water filtered as fine.
What is the difference between an ultrafiltration system and a reverse osmosis system?
An ultrafiltration system can filter the most solid particulates in fluids, but it is not able to filter out dissolved particulate like a reverse osmosis system. However, an ultrafiltration system can filter smaller particulate than a microfiltration or standard carbon filter can.
What contaminants does an ultrafiltration system filter out?
An ultrafiltration system will get rid of any suspended particulate larger than 0.025 microns. That means it can filter out inorganic solids, viruses, and bacteria because of their size. What an ultrafiltration system can't do is pull out dissolved minerals like a reverse osmosis system can. So, it's really great at filtering anything that's a solid, but not as good at removing dissolved solids.
Why acquire a domestic water purifier
The need for a water purifier system stems from the critical need to assure water safety for consumers in organizations, businesses and household settings to ease the water purification process for both small and large volumes of water for human consumption.
How do you install an ultrafiltration system?
Ultrafiltration systems are simple to install. This product simply hooks up to a line in the system so that water flows through the filters and the ultrafiltration membrane. Then, the out-line goes to a faucet. A dedicated faucet is typically best to provide the water from the ultrafiltration system, but it is still simple to install.
