Understanding What an Ultrafiltration System Is



In the video, ultrafiltration technology is explained as a method to create a super fine filter capable of capturing particulates smaller than 0.025 microns. This technology effectively removes suspended solids and larger bacteria from drinking water. Ultrafiltration systems are available in both point-of-use (under the counter) and point-of-entry (whole house) versions, making them suitable for various applications. The installation of these systems is straightforward.

An ultrafiltration system uses membranes with carbon pre-filters to address taste and odor concerns. The hollow fiber membrane, a key component, is highlighted for its long lifespan. Ultrafiltration is described as a mechanical filter that removes smaller precipitates, setting it apart from reverse osmosis systems. Unlike reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration cannot eliminate dissolved solids and does not require a drain connection.

Furthermore, the video introduces the Neo-Pure TL3 Ultrafiltration System as an advanced point-of-use filtration system. This system features a membrane that filters down to an impressive 0.025 microns, making it one of the smallest in the industry. The TL3 system is equipped with two carbon filters that effectively eliminate contaminants such as lead, cysts, mercury, chlorine taste, and odor. Notably, the TL3 boasts a fast flow rate of nearly a gallon per minute, surpassing many competitors in terms of particle removal and convenience during water-filling activities.
