Membranes

Company Reference: 

Axeon HF5 Series membranes not only offer 2,500 gpd and 98.5% rejection at 80 psi, they also have the lowest operating pressure of any polyamide membrane in the industry. That means reduced energy costs, increased system lifespan and the ability to downsize your system’s motor, making the HF5 membranes ideal for cold water and all other applications.

Success in the Maldives

In February, government officials from the Republic of Maldives joined representatives from the Aquiva Foundation, memsys, Aquaver and the local power company, Stelco, for the official commissioning of a desalination facility on the island of Gulhi that will bring a sustainable and reliable supply of drinking water to its residents.

Alternative Energy for Reliable RO

Tiny Utrik Atoll is part of the Marshall Islands, a scattered group of atolls in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. On Utrik and neighboring islands, rain catchment traditionally supplied all of the drinking water, while well water was used for washing. Over the past decade, however, rainfall has become unreliable, and during the dry seasons Utrik islanders were forced to drink well water with unsafe salinity levels.
