The Genesis of Membrane Technology
Developed for fluid treatment in residential, commercial and industrial applications, the use of membranes to selectively remove or separate extremely small substances from water and process streams has become a technological success story. There are four types of membrane filtration and separation technologies in commercial use today, effectively removing substances ranging in size from suspended solids to ionic species.

Benefits of Membrane Separation
Many industries are utilizing various technologies to minimize fresh water purchases and wastewater disposal. Few technologies, however, achieve the greater objectives of economically extracting valuables from the waste stream and improving product quality and/or process efficiencies. These are the challenges that membrane technology undertakes.

Membrane systems for multiple industries that routinely separate and concentrate acid, caustic, CMC, dye, glycol, ink, lignin, lubricant, metal, oil, protein, PVA, solvent, sugar, starch, titanium dioxide, water and other valuables from product and waste streams. Similarly, membrane systems that reduce BOD, COD and TDS pollutants prior to open water discharge, and others that concentrate radioactive and toxic contaminants for economic disposal.

Industries We Serve

   - Improving the Painting Process
   - Enhancing Beverage Taste and Colour
Biotech & Pharmaceutical
   - Prescription for purity.
The biotech and pharmaceutical industries use membrane separation technology for a variety of purposes, including laboratory purification, as well as separation and concentration during both pre-filtration and sterilization. For the ever growing biotech industry, UF and NF are used to purify and concentrate antibiotics. To control water purity, RO and UF are utilised to remove suspended material, iron, manganese, alkalinity, dissolved solids and other contaminants. Similarly, membrane filtration is used to purify water for injection, a vital component in most injectable drugs. Spiral-wound membrane systems are also used to purify water for kidney dialysis, which is then used to remove impurities from a patient's blood.

   - Recovering the riches.
The mining industry produces large quantities of process water laden with acid and dissolved metals. Typically accumulated in ponds, this process water poses potential ground water pollution problems and is neutralized with large quantities of lime, However, the implementation of NF and thin-film UF membrane elements has enabled the mining industry to recover both economically valuable metals and reusable water from the acid-water mixture, leading to an increase in lime neutralization efficiency and a corresponding decrease in costs related to lime purchase and sludge disposal.
Petroleum and Gas
   - Fuelling the oil industry.
In the field of petroleum and gas, UF is used to separate oil and water. Specially constructed membrane elements resist common problems such as fouling from free oil, oil de-emulsification as feed is concentrated, and accidental contamination of the waste stream by solvents. In addition, many industrial plants utilize UF to remove hydrocarbons, free oils, acids and polar organic solvents from the waste stream.
   - Clearly better.
Advantages such as reduced feed water requirements, longer equipment life, and reduced chemical usage all make membrane technology ideal for municipalities. Membrane elements remove various impurities from the source water, including metal ions, organic materials and other contaminants. Removal of organics from surface water reduces the risk of formation of carcinogenic trihalomethane.

Packaged RO/Ozone filtration systems. The revolutionary purification process greatly improves water quality by reducing salts, colour, and disinfection by-products. The result is pure, crystal clear drinking water exceeds EPA regulations.
   - The power to purify.
Membrane technology is used in the power generation industry to produce high-purity water for boilers and gas turbine injection. RO is employed in high- and low-pressure boiler applications to remove free chlorine, silica, hardness, TDS, CO2 and other contaminants. With a smaller footprint for space efficiency and the elimination of harsh chemicals, RO/EDI systems are fast becoming the new standard for pure-water performance at the world's leading power companies.
