Uses for DOW Ultrafiltration SFD-2860
The SFD series of the DOW ultrafiltration modules are especially suitable for drinking water applications. The modules are built with robust outside-in PVDF fiber technology. The hollow fibers feature high clean-ability, low chemical consumption, high recovery, and a superior combination of mechanical properties and chemical resistance.
DOW ultrafiltration SFD-2860 modules offer high membrane active area with a height that enables containerized system design. These modules are certified under NSF/ANSI Standard 61 for safe use in drinking water applications.
- Excellent removal of colloids, particles, and bacteria
- Low chemical consumption
- Ability to treat challenging feed water with limited pretreatment
- High chemical-resistance PVDF that allows aggressive chemical use for treating challenging water when needed
- Mechanically strong fibers enabling long module life
Proper start-up of a UF system is essential to prepare the membranes for
operating service and to prevent membrane damage. Following the
proper start-up sequence also helps ensure that system operating
parameters conform to design specifications so that system water quality
and productivity goals can be achieved. Before initiating system start-up
procedures, membrane pretreatment, installation of the membrane
modules, instrument calibration and other system checks should be
completed. Please refer to the product technical manual.
Avoid any abrupt pressure variations during start-up, shutdown, cleaning
or other sequences to prevent possible membrane damage. Flush the UF
system to remove shipping solution prior to start up. Remove residual air
from the system prior to start up. Manually start the equipment. Target a
permeate flow of 60% of design during initial operations. Depending on
the application, permeate obtained from initial operations should be
discarded. Please refer to the product technical manual.
If operating limits and guidelines given in this bulletin are not strictly
followed, the limited warranty (Form No. 795-00027) will be null and void.
To prevent biological growth during system shutdowns, it is recommended
that preservative solution be injected into the membrane modules.

The DOW™ Ultrafiltration (UF) modules are made from high strength, hollow fiber membranes that
This module is an ideal choice for systems with capacities greater than 50 m3/hr (220 gpm). The larger, 8 inch diameter module offers the highest effective membrane area of the DOW UF modules, which contributes to a more economical membrane system design. The shorter, 60 inch length module offers higher efficiencies over a wider range of feed water conditions compared to longer length modules. DOW Ultrafiltration Modules can be used for a wide variety of treatment applications such as surface water, seawater, industrial wastewaters, and secondary effluent wastewater.
