The system has provided continuous, quality feedwater to a downstream RO system for almost a year
Dow Water & Process Solutions, a business unit of the Dow Chemical Co., announced the results of a recent piloting focused on Dow ultrafiltration (UF) technologies that was carried out at its Global Water Technology Center in Tarragona, Spain, and has seen continuous high-quality feedwater supply to the reverse osmosis (RO) system downstream over a prolonged period.
The Casarte washing machine is equipped with Dow Water & Process Solutions’ Purinze UF technology, allowing it to reduce water consumption by 30% and improve water quality by removing up to 99% of common bacteria. The porous hollow fibers of about 20 to 30 nm in diameter allow water to pass through while blocking bacteria and mites.

In my previous article, “Ultrafiltration: A Business Growth Opportunity” (September 2013), I referenced a 2010 BBC research report stating that “the U.S. market for ultrafiltration (UF) technologies was worth $940 million in 2010. It is estimated to be valued at $1.24 billion by 2015.”1 Simply put, the business opportunities for UF are growing rapidly, which could prove extremely profitable for the savvy professional water dealer.
