Ultra Filtration

Water/ Fertilizer systems

The principle of Ultra Filtration

Ultrafiltration (UF) is a Ultra Filtration (membrane) process similar to Reverse Osmosis, using hydrostatic pressure to force water through a semi-permeable membrane element. UF is a barrier to suspended solids, bacteria, viruses, endotoxins, and other pathogens to produce water with very high purity and low SDI.

A pressure difference is the driving force for the membrane. The pressure difference allows the water to flow through the pores of the membrane. All matter larger than the pores is retained on the surface of the membrane. This process is called pore size exclusion. The membrane is called semi-permeability because it allows water to pass while it retains other substances. The pore size of the membrane determines the size of the particles that are being removed. If the pores are micrometer sized the membrane is called a microfiltration membrane, if the pores are smaller than a tenth of a micrometer the membrane us called an Ultra Filtration membrane.

Future proof irrigation systems

The horticultural sector worldwide faces the challenge of producing more food in an environment where water is becoming increasingly scarce and fertilizers increasingly expensive. More economical and efficient use and reuse of water play an increasingly important role. In addition, maintaining the quality of water and food safety will remain of great importance.
By minimizing the use of water and nutrients, each plant must receive exactly the right amount of water and nutrients.
At Hortilife, we know these challenges and make sure our solutions are future proof.
