Reverse osmosis (RO) has become the standard technology for water purification in numerous commercial and industrial applications. This trend has largely been driven by the advancement of low-pressure RO membranes with enhanced energy savings. Axeon Water Technologies is a leader in utilizing innovative proprietary technology for increasing permeate production while lowering operating pressures in RO applications.
Marketing program will engage membrane resellers into the CSM's sales and marketing channels
CSM/Woongjin Chemical America Inc., the Anaheim, Calif.-based manufacturer of reverse osmosis/nanofiltration membranes, has released a new marketing program designed to engage membrane resellers into its sales and marketing channels.
NRO Commercial Series reverse osmosis (RO) systems are custom built by Nelsen Corp. to customer specifications. These quality, cost-efficient systems offer a multitude of standard features that are optional on many other RO systems.
NSF-grade high-quality parts are used to build this tough system. All NRO commercial systems are wet tested to optimum pressure and production prior to shipment, and are delivered with individual quality assurance reports to show actual performance data on outputs and rejections.
Businesses and municipalities to benefit from innovative financing solutions
Dow Water & Process Solutions (DW&PS), together with De Lage Landen Financial Services (DLL), announced the industry’s first reverse osmosis (RO) element leasing program for Filmtec elements. Through this collaborative offering, businesses and municipalities in North America can benefit from innovative financing to ease element acquisition and affordability and to better manage cash flow.
In his early 20s, Bill Certain, president of Certain Water Service Inc. in Port Charlotte, Fla., was captivated by the water industry while working for a dairy supply company in Okeechobee, Fla. “My employer sent me to a school in Illinois to train on their supplies, and we spent most of the time on the importance of soft water and how much soap and supplies the dairy industry could save. I was sold from that point,” he said.
Florida water professional finds his niche in the water industry
Filmtec BW30-8040 elements have been used for the past 21 years at the Antelope Valley Station, a lignite coal-based power plant in North Dakota operated by Basin Electric Power Cooperative. In 1992, the plant sought a cost-effective solution to treat feedwater from its Lake Sakakawea source — a reservoir of Missouri River water.
RO membranes provide power plant with cost-effective, environmentally friendly treatment
The Lewabrane RO line consists of spiral-wound, thin film composite membrane elements designed specifically for industrial applications. The membrane chemistry and element construction are designed to provide optimized, low cost of operation for downstream unit operations, like separate- or mixed-bed ion exchange units. The elements comply with NSF/ANSI Standard 61.
Filmtec RO 75- and 100-gpd home drinking water membranes help remove contaminants and reduce impurities. With a stabilized salt rejection rate of 99% at 75 gpd and 98% at 100 gpd, in standard sizes, the BW-60-1812-75 and TW30-1812-100HR home drinking water elements produce high-quality water quickly. The elements offer a balance of flow and high rejection, producing more water with 20% higher flow rates.
The 3M Pro RO drinking water filtration system uses multistage filtration and includes a high-pressure booster that keeps consistent pressure. It is able to deliver 36 to 50 gal of clean water per day. The system has an electronic pressure switch set to activate at 40 psi and shut off at 60 psi. It is compact and can be installed centrally in a home. With its quick tank recovery, the system is convenient for sinks in kitchens, baths, wet bars and refrigerators.
3M Pro’s high-pressure booster pump keeps production steady
3M Purification introduced the 3M Pro reverse osmosis drinking water filtration system. The system helps provide clean, better-tasting water using multistage filtration and includes a high-pressure booster pump for increased production. The addition of the booster pump gives it a consistent pressure of 100 psi and the ability to deliver 36 to 50 gal of clean, great-tasting water per day.
