Membrane water technologies
Membranes are (porous) selective barriers that will pass some substances and will retain others. In process water production applications and in wastewater treatment the substance to be passed is water. The substance to be retained can be very much dependent on the application. The driving force for the separation is generally a pressure gradient.
Our range of membrane-based products includes:
Microfiltration and ultrafiltration
Our AQUALITY® technology will typically retain suspended solids, colloidal material and bacteria
Nano-filtration and desalination
EXSEL® will retain dissolved solids, hereby drastically reducing the salt content of the water.
BOOMERANG® is a close-the-loop solution, with process water production from biological effluent.
Integrated membrane solutions
The combination of AQUALITY® UF and EXSEL® RO enables the production of safe drinking water and process water from any source. The process of AQUALITY® microfiltration and ultrafiltration will typically retain suspended solids, colloidal material and bacteria, while EXSEL® RO desalination will retain dissolved solids, hereby drastically reducing the salt content of the water.
The combination ensures that the produced water complies with the WHO (World Health Organisation) regulations and make it a perfect and safe drinking water.
