  • Utilizes Patented Outside/In Enpress Polymeric Membrane Filtration Module that is NSF 61, EPA, ACS and CDHS certified. BioVir certified and tested module for log reduction of Bacteria and Virus.
  • Four bundles of 0.02 micron filtration membranes in each vessel in a twin alternating configuration.
  • High performance flow rates, up to 12 gpm.
  • Standard 1" MNPT ports with 1/2" MNPT drain.
  • Standard bottom drain flush valve removes any filter particles that have accumulated at the bottom of the UF.
  • Low waste water discharge used when cleaning. Treated water backwash increases membrane life.
  • Designed for cyst reduction, turbidity, and fine sediment filtration applications.
  • Influent water must meet these requirements. Please contact WECO for pre-treating water. Pilot testing with UF-PLT-STK advised.
    Influent Parameters:
    Pre-Filtration <5 Microns, 1 PPM Chlorine,0.3 PPM Iron, 0.05 PPM Manganese, Plus Others See Pre-treatment Section Below.

WECO Polymeric Ultrafiltration Backwashing Water Filtration System

WECO UF844-IXPT Polymeric Ultrafiltration Backwashing Water Filter is a final stage polishing filter utilizing an Enpress patented polysulfone-based Outside/In Ultrafiltration Membrane. The ultrafiltration system is designed for turbidity, cyst reduction and fine sediment filtration applications, and the Enpress ultrafiltration module is NSF 61 certified. The membrane operates with flow from the outside-to-inside, with benefits of minimized risk of deep clogging, simple cleaning of the membrane surface with water and/or air, and a high area volume ratio that allows for a compact design. The membrane is non-biodegradable, and has superior mechanical and chemical resistance. The ENPRESS Polymeric Ultrafiltration Vessel System provides point-of-entry (POE) filtration, for safe and clean water at every faucet.

Operational Parameters

Design Parameters

  • Operation Pressure: 10 to 100 psi
  • Operating Temperature: 35 to 100 degrees F
  • Continuous Flow Rate: 10 GPM
  • The system provides a treated flow of up to 12 gpm at 25 C and 60 psi.

Backwash Requirements

  • Automatic backflush performed every midnight for 5 minutes @ 7.2 GPM
  • Drain flush once a week 2 minutes @ 5GPM (simply open bottom drain valve)

Pre-treatment

  • Iron and Manganese: Reduce iron to <0.3ppm and manganese to <0.05 ppm
  • Sediment: 5 microns or less
  • Silt Density Index: Less than 6.0
  • pH: 3 to 11
  • Chlorine: 1.0 ppm maximum for continuous flow (up to 2000 ppm for cleaning only)

Contaminant Reduction

  • Treats colloids, bacteria, cysts, viruses, turbidity, tannins, and other particles down to 0.02 microns in size.

Question:

Can the Pilot UF can handle 24-hour operation and if it can be backwashed?

By Robert
on May 19, 2023
Answer:
  • Of course, the Pilot Stick was designed for application testing. However, in accordance with its spec, it
    can handle up to 0.8 GPM at 68 degrees F. To backwash, use the same flow rate in reverse. Also use a
    Pilot Stick to test the application if it involves tannins, clay or sediment.

Question:

The membrane is rated for colloids – but I understand not clay which is one of the largest contributors of colloids. Can you please explain this?

By Alex P
on February 25, 2023
Answer:
  • The UF system is actually an absolute 0.01 micron hollow fiber membrane but is application rated at 0.02 microns.  With that said, the physical size of the colloid and/or clay will determine application efficacy.

Question:

What is the maximum recommended daily duty cycle per tank & module based on up to 20-24 hours per day operation?

By Alex P
on February 25, 2023
Answer:
  • This is dependent on contaminant type and concentration but a “rule of thumb” is
    500 to 1000 gallons processed or at no greater than 15 delta P.

Question:

What is the rated maximum continuous duty flow rate for each tank & UF module? I understand that this is temperature dependent.

By Alex
on February 25, 2023
Answer:
  • The flow rate is dependent on temperature as stated, however normal continuous flow rates range from 4 gpm to 10 gpm.  Remember, the temperature as well as contaminant type and concentrations impact performance.
