Fluytec, specialized company in Pretreatment Filtration and expert in FRP Cartridge Filter Housings launches the Next Generation of Ultra-filtration (UF) Solutions: Continuous Ultrafiltration (c-UF) and Integrated Ultrafiltration (i-UF).
Both of them simplify UF configurations adding extra benefits at the same time for product flows from 8 m3/h up to 310 m3/h. After designing and manufacturing conventional UF systems, Fluytec R&D department developed and patented the idea of Continuous Ultra-Filtration (c-UF), achieving a continuous permeate production by cleaning one UF module at a time.
This reduces the need for auxiliary equipment with consequent savings on capital expenditure and space at plants. In another step forward, the Integrated Ultra-Filtration (i-UF) was launched and patented with a view to installing UF systems outdoors. It comprises a filter body which integrates two stages that are traditionally set up separately in water treatment plants: primary or coarse filtration (Self Cleaning Strainer) and ultra-filtration (UF membrane cartridges).
Vessel is available in different materials and membrane cartridges in various configurations. This approach admits unlimited design pressures and dramatically decreases the footprint requirements and membrane replacement cost. Fluytec's R&D Department has been working on piloting processes for both units since 2015, in different locations and applications (waste water and seawater) showing positive results in performance, quality and operational costs. Continuous UF and Integrated UF come to expand the filtration spectrum of the company, which makes them the ideal partner for any design requirements, be it conventional or membrane type.
