Filtration is a process used to separate solids from liquids or gases using a filter medium that allows the fluid, or filtrate, to pass through. The term ‘filtration’ applies whether the filter is mechanical, biological or physical. Pre-filtration products generally filter particulate (suspended) solids.
Ultra filtration is applied in the separation of solids from water or effluent streams using an impenetrable membrane. Unlike conventional media filtration, it offers a universal barrier independent of upstream process changes.
Unlike other filtration technologies that rely on a screens or filters to remove particles, reverse osmosis and nano-filtration are pressure-driven separation processes that employ semi-permeable membranes and the principles of cross-flow filtration.
Key components in this process are fibreglass-reinforced plastic pressure vessels that serve as housings for reverse osmosis membranes. These vessels are typically connected serially into trains, are several meters in length and operate under relatively high pressure.
Sustainable solutions for the production of fresh, clean water through the supply of unique membrane filtration technology. Products use open channel modules in a variety of applications, including leachate treatment at landfills, marine and offshore reverse osmosis, industrial water waste and surface water treatment.
will be the technologies of the future as organisations work towards finding sustainable solutions that will meet their diverse and complex water challenges.
