Ultrafiltration systems can be used to treat surface water. Besides that UF modules are used for treatment of biological and chemical treatment effluent in RO system as pre-filtration. Suspended solid, mocromolecules, bacteria and viruses totally removed by 0,01 micron pore sized membranes that are used in UF systems. Pre-filtration or flotation is required treatment of waters that have high suspended solid concentration with UF system. Additionally UF system highly used as pre-filtration in treatment of sea water with RO systems. UF systems are very important for water recovery processes.
