What are the advantages of Netsol UF Ultrafiltration Systems?
In tertiary wastewater reuse, process water, and drinking water applications, UF or ultrafiltration technology is a highly effective treatment solution. These applications are designed to treat tertiary wastewater, surface water, and grey water that contains a wide range of organic, inorganic, and microbiological pollutants.
Utra-filtration systems can decrease and remove particles as fine as 0.01 micron, resulting in treated water that has almost no suspended solids and is free of microbiological contamination.
To extract suspended solids from water, ultrafiltration devices use a semipermeable membrane. Larger particles are maintained on the feed water side of the membrane, which features pores of a specified size that allows water, ions, and molecules of low molecular weight to flow through. Since the water won't flow through the membrane on its own, a negative pressure difference is applied across it. The water will migrate to the membrane's lower pressure side.
1. Controller for adaptive systems:
Water treatment components can be operated remotely thanks to the controls system. The operation could be manual, needing someone to interact with the controller on a frequent basis in order to keep the systems running. There are also automatic controllers that allow the system to run with very little human intervention.
Netsol, on the other hand, incorporates adaptive controls into its ultrafiltration systems. They can not only operate the system automatically, but they can also intelligently adapt to system changes and make operational adjustments to compensate. These types of control systems enable precise and rapid responses to changes in feed water composition, system pressure, flow rate, and other factors.
Certain contaminating chemicals and quantities are toxic to membrane systems. If the system is not thoroughly monitored and maintained, fouling might occur frequently. Fouling causes decreased efficiency, increased energy use, and, in some situations, premature membrane replacement. These concerns have the potential to significantly increase operational expenses.
Netsol is careful in creating and implementing adequate pre-treatment methods to avoid this. Antiscalants are used to prevent membrane scaling, sediment filtration is used to reduce suspended solids concentrations that would induce excessive membrane building, and UV sterilisation is used to prevent bacterial bio-fouling. Back washing cycle frequency is lowered as fouling is reduced.
3. Compact, modular systems:
Some clients may lack the space or financial resources to support a large centralised system. Others may need to retrofit if they want to replace one of their current treatment systems with ultrafiltration or boost system flow with a small footprint. Regardless of the reason, Netsol offers compact UF ultrafiltration systems that are modular for easy installation.
4. Option to clean in place:
In some cases, simply back washing an ultrafiltration system with water is insufficient to effectively clean the membrane surface. Ultrafiltration membranes can also be coupled to a cleaning system that cleans the membrane after usage using particular chemicals and hotter water. Some mineral scale fouling can be removed with these systems.
