Membrane technology

Membrane Technology for Water Purification & Wastewater Treatment

The term membrane technology is used to describe a variety of liquid filtration and separation processes that includes micro-filtration, ultra-filtration, nano-filtration and reverse osmosis. All these filtration processes have one thing in common – the use of a membrane as a major component in the separation process itself.

Typically speaking you will find a membrane used in technologies that filter water from various sources to get rid of any particulates (contaminants) in that water.

Desalination and water purification

Desalination of Salt Water & Seawater for Water Purification

Desalination describes the water purification process that involves extracting salts and minerals from saline, salt water or seawater. It is a water treatment purification process that is used extensively around the World and its use is increasing as population growth, industrialisation and climate change impact the demands for clean water suitable for drinking purposes.

Salt water is commonly desalinated in order to produce purified water that is suitable for humans to drink (potable water) or use for the irrigation of crops.

When salt water is desalinated it produces fresh water with salt as a by-product.

Membrane technology

Membrane Technology for Water Purification & Wastewater Treatment

The term membrane technology is used to describe a variety of liquid filtration and separation processes that includes micro-filtration, ultra-filtration, nano-filtration and reverse osmosis. All these filtration processes have one thing in common – the use of a membrane as a major component in the separation process itself.

Typically speaking you will find a membrane used in technologies that filter water from various sources to get rid of any particulates (contaminants) in that water.

Desalination and water purification

Desalination of Salt Water & Seawater for Water Purification

Desalination describes the water purification process that involves extracting salts and minerals from saline, salt water or seawater. It is a water treatment purification process that is used extensively around the World and its use is increasing as population growth, industrialisation and climate change impact the demands for clean water suitable for drinking purposes.

Salt water is commonly desalinated in order to produce purified water that is suitable for humans to drink (potable water) or use for the irrigation of crops.

When salt water is desalinated it produces fresh water with salt as a by-product.
