UF Membrane

An ultrafiltration (UF) membrane is a technically-advanced semi-permeable membrane type capable of filtering out, and disposing of, harmful and dangerous water contaminants, while still preserving healthy essential minerals and salts.

In Malaysia, we are blessed with a constant supply of rain water, flowing into our rivers, and into water catchment areas. However, as water flows into our taps, it gets polluted and contaminated along the way by pesticides and herbicides from agricultural development, industrial waste, or organic matter. Contamination can even take place in our aging water supply pipe system; where sand, decaying matter, and rust can accumulate.

The Mechanics of Ultrafiltration (UF) Membrane Usage

This semi-permeable ultrafiltration membrane has the capacity to physically trap water contaminants – such as: bacteria, viruses, and parasites, and other water-born impurities – by employing thousands of hollow fiber membrane filaments. Each membrane filament comprises billions of microscopic pores. Under water pressure, the water molecules are forced through these pores, towards the hollow center of the ultrafiltration membrane; while hindering the free passage of the pollutants. These adverse particles and microorganisms – effectually blocked by the UF membrane – are subsequently flushed from the membrane module; leaving you with clear, sanitised and totally healthful water for Malaysian commercial use and/or for private consumption.

Ultrafiltration (UF) Membrane Use in Blöndal Water Filter Systems

The ultra-filtration (UF) membrane comprised in Blöndal water filtration systems, effectively traps particles larger than 0.01 micron from entering the water supply. The use of this types of filtration membrane technology constitutes that our filtration systems are exceedingly more effective than conventional water filtration systems.

Whether your residence or business facility here in Malaysia utilises a ground, surface or municipal water supply, a Blöndal filtration system comprising a (UF) membrane technology can and will provide healthful and good-tasting water – for you and your family as well as your workforce.
