Replacement of your UF membrane modules

The UF membrane modules of Berghof Membranes are globally known for their robust quality and superb performance.

Depending on your application, it is known that membranes have a certain lifespan. To assure an optimal performance it is important that you know the physical condition of your membranes. With over 40 years of experience within the membrane industry, our engineers can fully support you in creating an optimum plan for the replacement of your tubular UF membrane modules.

Did you know that we can help you increase the lifespan of your ultrafiltration membranes? By optimizing your pre-treatment and filtration process we can improve permeate output and extend the service life of the membrane.

Increasing your performance by replacing UF modules

Berghof Membranes is at the edge of new innovations, therefore it is very likely that your current membrane modules have been superseded during their lifespan. On most occasions changing to a new innovation is more economical due to better performance and a reduction of expenditures. With our team, we can jointly develop a staged replacement plan for your membranes to get the most out of your installation. The new membrane modules have the same dimensions as the present ones, replacement could not be easier or faster.

Berghof Membranes combines the highest product standard with the latest know-how on the implementation of tubular membrane products. Our well-trained engineers support you to ensure a flawless operation of your ultrafiltration (UF) installation. Together we maximize the flux and minimize the fouling of your process. Our experience makes the difference in terms of efficiency, robustness, reliability, safety and quality.

    The External Principle

    We at Berghof Membranes believe in external membrane filtration and it is the passion that drives us to “think outside the box”.


    The Berghof Membranes filtration systems are positioned outside the bioreactor and utilize variable crossflow velocity to keep the membranes working at optimal conditions. If necessary, this process is supported with permeate backwash (temporarily reversed permeate flow) or chemical backwash protocols.

    Tubular membranes are frequently applied in the external configuration because of the greater ease in cleaning, zero odor emissions and overall superior robustness.

    Do we need to convince you more?

    Berghof Membranes ensures the highest proven product quality unmatched by competitors. To prove this to you we offer you the possibility to pilot test our unparalleled performance. Our standalone containerized pilot units are plug-and-play to test performance head-on.

    The membrane modules of Berghof Membranes are 1-to-1 interchangeable with most common brands in the market.

    Why External Membrane Filtration:

    • Easier operation, maintenance and replacement of modules
    • Higher flux rates (50-150 LMH)
    • Lower fouling potential
    • Reduced chemical usage due to extended cleaning periods
    • Modular “plug-and-play” design
    • Quick commissioning and increased flexibility
    • Zero odor emissions
