The new Q-SEP 2008 hollow-fiber UF module offers greater flexibility when designing smaller filtration systems particularly for commercial customers as well for other customers where water demand is low. 2008 is most suitable for customers such as offices, hospitals, hotels, whole house POE and so on.

Q-SEP 2008, which is NSF-certified, is a self-encapsulated hollow-fiber ultrafiltration membrane module (inside-out) with a membrane surface area of 20.0 m².

The total length including end cap is 1015 mm, and the unit has a diameter of 225 mm. The Q-SEP model 2008 module weighs 28 kg. As with other Q-SEP models, the 2008 module is mounted vertically.

Q-SEP hollow-fiber UF membranes are manufactured with QUA's "Cloud Point Precipitation" method. This innovative process ensures a high pore density along the length of the fiber and uniform pore size distribution in the membrane.

QUA says that the Q-SEP modules deliver superior performance characteristics and product water quality that surpass the quality from conventional UF modules, with low silt density index and excellent rejection of bacteria and viruses.
