Dairy Ultrafiltration

Toray offers both 5000 and 10,000 molecular weight options in order to best meet the needs of your proprietary process for dairy applications or other beverage or RO pretreatment needs. Within each molecular weight model there are multiple choices of performance depending on the application and operating conditions.

Toray UF Membrane Type and Dairy Application

Membrane Character Application
TUF 10K Our standard UF that outperforms industry benchmarks on both flux and protein retention Whey processing at all concentrations, MPC
TUF 10K HR A very high protein retention membrane but with good flux High concentration end of whey plants and WPI plants
TUF 5K A very high retention membrane A direct replacement for competitor 5K membranes
TUF 5K HR A low flux membrane with maximum retention Special applications in dairy, gelatine, sugar etc.

Each UF membrane option is provided in a net wrapped, sanitary design spiral element. The UF membrane is a hydrophilic polyethersulfone asymmetric membrane, developed specifically for maximum retention of milk and whey proteins and maximum productivity. Toray's TUF ultrafiltration membrane products are USDA accepted and 3A / FDA compliant.
