Membrane Filtration

membrane filtrationLooking to recover up to 95% pure clean water from your waste stream? Giving you significant cost savings on your effluent bill and on your clean water supply? Then membrane filtration could be the cost effective solution.

Concentration and separation of liquid streams utilising combinations of microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nano-filtration and reverse osmosis offers enormous potential for cost savings in terms of reduced water and energy costs, water recovery, effluent treatment, product recovery and nutrient recovery for resale.

Membrane Separations

Microfiltration Proteins, fats, suspended solids
Ultrafiltration Sugars, proteins, macromolecules
Nano-filtration Divalent salts, dissociated acids, sugars
Reverse Osmosis Monovalent salts, organics, undissociated acids
