Ultra Filtration System
Ultrafiltration and Reverse Os (NF) are all pressure-driven membrane separation process. UF filter media is UF membrane, configured as flat type, tubular type and hollow fiber type. UF process is the separation process in relation with pore size, and the pore size is between RO (NF) and MF (0.001-0.1μm).
UF Ultrafiltration Systems – The Puritech 5-stage UF System offers the perfect filtration option for users looking for a basic system that also offers excellent water filtration and has no water waste. The system consists of a sediment, granular carbon, and carbon block filter as pre-treatment and then an Ultra-Filtration membrane which filters down to 0.2 microns to remove bacteria and parasites. The water then flows through an inline carbon polishing filter before flowing to your tap.
What does the Ultrafiltration Systems remove?
Stage 1 – Melt Blown Sediment Filter
Removes suspended (floating) particles including
- Sand or small stones
Stage 2 – GAC Filter
Removes chemicals or bad tastes or odors in the water including
- Volatile Organic Compounds and other chemicals
Stage 3 – Carbon Block Filter
Removes any residual suspended particles, chemicals, or bad tastes or odors that the first 2 filters have missed
Stage 4 – Ultra Filter Membrane
Removes very small suspended particles in the water including:
- Silt or clay
Stage 5 – Activated Carbon Polishing Filter
An extra “backup” carbon filter cartridge that removes any residual tastes and odors in the water that may have somehow not been removed by the previous 4 stages
What does this filter not remove?
- Dissolved minerals (so if you have brackish water, this will not improve the taste as the unpleasant taste is caused by dissolved salts)
Dissolved minerals can only be removed through a more expensive and complicated reverse-osmosis process.
- Hardness (so if you have hard water, this filter will not reduce the hardness)
Hardness can only be removed by reverse osmosis (although vastly reduces the lifespan of the reverse osmosis membrane) or by using a softening resin cartridge
- No Waste Water
- Operates with low pressure (1 bar and up)
- Best Value vs Performance Filter- No Power Required- Low maintenance Costs

The Puritech 5 – stage UF offers excellent filtration and higher flow than a similar-sized Reverse – Osmosis unit, this means that it does not need an additional storage tank and is more compact.
The filter also uses industry-standard 10 inches slimline 10 x 2.5 replacement filters that most filter and hardware store stock.
