X-Flow’s hollow fiber ultrafiltration (UF) membranes, with a MWCO (Molecular Weight Cutt-off) of 150 to 200 kilodaltons (kDa), remove all fine silt, turbidity, bacteria and viruses, as well as chlorine-resistant organisms such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia.

Water treatment
Ultrafiltration membrane productivity is high, while pressure differences remain low. X-Flow’s UF membrane technology is used to produce potable water and process water, and is used in the pre-treatment process of large seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) plants.
X-Flow ultrafiltration membrane technology has proven to be an excellent large-scale treatment method for surface water, the effluent of wastewater treatment plants, and groundwater projects with suspended solids levels of up to 100 to 200 mg/L.

drinking water from surface water

Meeting the global drinking water quality standards requires a wide local variety of treatment methods, due to different feedwater sources. Pentair delivers solutions for every drinking water application.

Ultrafiltration is the perfect method for producing drinking water from surface water.

Ground water from a variety of sources, such as ground water, surface water, lake or river water or seawater can be sources for potable water treatment.

In some cases, bore holes for collection of ground water that were constructed many decades ago are constructed of bricks. When exposed to ground movement, cracks can develop which allows surface water to enter the bore holes.

The traditionally clean ground water can then become contaminated with microorganisms. This is referred to as “ground water under the influence of surface water”.

The X-Flow Xiga or Aquaflex membrane technology can be used to filter the ground water to remove contaminants and guarantee complete removal of bacteria and viruses. Surface water contains microbiology as well as suspended solids. Sometimes dissolved organics are present that cause color in the surface water. X-Flow Xiga or Aquaflex membrane technology can provide a reliable treatment system that eliminates the need for multiple treatment steps.
