Ultrafiltration is a membrane filtration process in which the water is pressed through a semi-permeable membrane (hollow fiber technology) using normal household water pressure, so that only fresh, clean water and dissolved minerals are allowed to pass through.
Makromolekulare Substances and small particles such as heavy metals and pollutants are filtered.
The cut-off of ultrafiltration is between 2 and 100 nanometers, as opposed to 5 microns for sediment filters.
Much smaller particles are thus filtered out. The filtration process enables removal of up to 99.8% of all flavors and pollutants.
The trace elements and minerals are not removed from the water.
This filter is specific to the following devices:
