Ultrafiltration

Ultrafiltration membranes have a pore size distribution from 1,000…500,000 Dalton (1…500 KD) and therefore offer a huge variety of fractionation possibilities.

UF technology enables the concentration of components with higher molecular weight without additional energy input and therefore are applied in numerous technology steps in a wide range of industries.
