Water Treatment Systems – Microfiltration

Microfiltration is defined to pore sizes from 0,1 to 10 micron. This means that microfiltration removes microorganisms and bacteria. Microfiltration even removes some viruses as the viruses attach themselves to biofilm.

LiqTech has more than 16 years of experience in the filtration industry, and is one of the pioneers with our revolutionary silicon carbide membranes. LiqTech offers a number of standard MF units for the swimming pool industry with a pore size of 1 or 3 micron. Compared to traditional sand filters that typically operates at approx. 10 micron these systems offer a lot of advantages:

  • Removal of bacteria
  • Removal of microorganisms like Cryptosporidium
  • Removal of smaller organic- and inorganic particles
  • Improved Turbidity

Typical applications for microfiltration is:

  • Swimming pools
  • Pre-filtration for RO (Reverse Osmosis)
  • Separation of solids from liquid
  • Separation of bacteria from liquid
