Hollow Fiber Ultrafiltration Membranes

During the past decade, municipalities and industries throughout the world have been adopting ultrafiltration (UF) membrane technology to safeguard public health, protect the environment and create sustainable water supplies. ZENON Environmental, Inc. has recently introduced their ZeeWeed® UF membrane technology into the residential market with the Homespring™ Central Water Purifier.

Desalination

Aging facilities, increasingly strict regulations and growing communities are resulting in the need for significant investment in new drinking water infrastructure. As these demands place strain on the capacity of existing treatment systems, many municipalities are turning to membrane filtration to treat their sources of surface and ground water.

Membrane Filtration

As the nation’s population continues to grow, the associated use of chemical products and waste generation rises accordingly. As a result, an increasing variety of contaminants are regularly released into the nation’s water sources, eventually making their way into the drinking water supply.

Commercial Drinking Water Systems

When designing a commercial drinking water system using ultraviolet (UV) light for disinfection, you will need to know the local regulations, how to determine flow rates, what options may be required and whether you need pre-treatment. When speaking about commercial establishments, I am referring to restaurants, daycare centers, schools, hospitals, parks and other entities that serve the public.

Filtration

Scale… it is a vicious never-ending problem that can kill the overall efficiency of water-cooling systems or towers. It can also clog sand-type filtering systems and turn the sand to cement, eventually shutting it down altogether.

Cooling Tower Water Treatment

Microorganisms tend to thrive in the re-circulated water and on wet surfaces. Bacteria, slime and algae foul heat– exchanger surfaces and in some cases attack and destroy system components.
