Water Treatment Systems – Ultrafiltration

Ultrafiltration is defined to pore sizes from 0,001 to 0,1 micron. This means that ultrafiltration removes microorganisms, bacteria and viruses depending on the pore size.

LiqTech offers a standard UF units which, in different configurations modes, are ideal to treat industrial wastewater and as pre-treatment for:

  • Removal of microorganisms
  • Removal of bacteria and viruses
  • Removal of smaller organic- and inorganic particles
  • Removal of oil and heavy metals


Typical applications for ultrafiltration is:

  • Removal of heavy metals in e.g mining operations
  • Cleaning of process water in wet condensate scrubber loops (marine & land based systems)
  • Pre-filtration for RO (reverse osmosis) in e.g drinking water applications
  • Feed water treatment for land based fish farms
  • Reclaim of backwash water from sandfilters
  • Treating of produced water
