What is the full form of UF?

  1. What is the full form of UF?
  1. The full form of UF is Ultrafiltration. It is a type of filtration that is used in the UF water purifiers to kill solids, bacteria, viruses, endotoxins and other pathogens produce water with very high purity and low silt density. It is a membrane filtration in which hydrostatic pressure forces a liquid against a semi-permeable membrane. It has exceptional properties for eliminating the microorganisms and suspended particles.

    Ultrafiltration is not fundamentally different from microfiltration, both separate based on size exclusion but it is different from the membrane gas separation method, which separates based on different amounts of absorption and different rates of diffusion. It explains molecular weight cut-off (MWCO) of the membrane used and applied in cross-flow or dead-end mode.

    Application of ultrafiltration

    1. Ultrafiltration is used for drinking water to remove particulates and macromolecules from raw water to produce potable water.

    2. It is used in the dairy industry for processing of cheese whey to obtain whey protein concentrate and lactose-rich permeate.

    3. Enzmy recovery

    4.Filtration of profluent from paper mash factory

    5. Dialysis and blood treatment

    6. Laboratory products

    7. Water treatment

    8. Radiocarbon dating of bone collagen

    9. Metal industry

    Advantage of ultrafiltration

    1. The energy used in ultrafiltration is lower than nano-filtration

    2. It is a cost-effective technique

    3. It is a time-saving method whole process of filtration required few step

    4. High quality of infuses output, which is based on the water source and the membrane

    5. It takes into account the disposing of infections, phage, colloids and macromolecules partly. Cleansing occurs by killing the microbes.
