  • Solid / gas separation with fabric filters

    A myriad of filter media are utilized today for separation of particulate matter in industrial gas filtration applications. These media range from single use (deposable) to semi-permanent media and include fiber, fabric, ceramic, membrane, metal mesh, and sintered metal media. Semi-permanent media are usually cleanable, either on or off-line, and are primarily intended for long-term (up to ...

  • Rolled Filters Move Filtration in a New Direction

    When selecting filtration technology, industrial users have long wrestled with the tradeoffs of dirt-holding capacity versus particle selectivity or quick-and-dirty change-outs versus process time. For many applications, a self-contained rolled filter offers an effective solution to both problems. Constructed with polypropylene hardware and various media in a spiral-wound design, rolled filters ...

  • Understanding Crossflow Filtration

    There's a lot of attention being given to water availability and purity, with good reason. Obtaining enough water is a struggle in some areas. In others, water is tainted with contaminants. It is therefore predictable that regulations and economics will force careful water treatment and stress water re-use. Fortunately, there are water treatment methods that can help you meet the water quality ...

    Rainwater Harvesting System for primary school The Westborough Primary School, near Southend-on-Sea, has ordered a complete rainwater harvesting system from market leader Aquaco. The system comprises of a 10,000 litre single piece underground rainwater collection tank and the Aquaco inline wire mesh leaf filter. A dual submersible pump set provides 100% standby ...

  • Methods of Water Purification

    This article is excerpted from 'Pure Water Handbook' published by Osmonics®, Inc. of Minnetonka, Minnesota USA and is printed with permission of Osmonics, Inc. Water treatment can be defined as any procedure or method used to alter the chemical composition or natural 'behavior' of a water supply. Water supplies are classified as either surface water or groundwater. The majority of public or ...

  • Spiral-Wound Sepralators: The Range of Options

    Introduction Spiral-wound membrane elements (sepralators) were used mainly for basic water purification until the mid to late 1970s, when broader uses began to receive attention. New applications often required special consideration such as; sanitary construction for the dairy industry, high temperature for food processes and waste streams, and high pressure capability for desalination. In ...

  • Getting Comfortable With Your Reverse Osmosis Machine

    Introduction Most people who work with an apparatus unlike any in their previous experience approach it with some apprehension. This is common behavior and fits the way most of us approach unfamiliar things. Perhaps you deal with this kind of uncertainty about the reverse osmosis (RO) machine in your dialysis unit. This article is intended to increase your understanding of the machine and how it ...


  • Reverse Osmosis: How Does It Figure Into a Dialysis Water System?

    Better than 95% of all dialysis centers use water purification equipment to purify water for dialysis. The centerpiece of these water purification systems has become reverse osmosis. In conjunction with sound pretreatment, RO has proven itself to be the safest, most reliable, and most economical method of purifying water for dialysis. Water plays an important, life-sustaining role for dialysis ...

  • Viltra IWOX systems engineered by DMT - The next standard in small scale wastewater treatment

    Abstract Both technology and environmental awareness drive legislation for wastewater treatment. Now, the leap from 20/30 (BOD: Biological oxygen demand, mg/l / SS: suspended solids, mg/l) to 10/10 or even 5/5 is possible due to a different design approach. For years, the sewage treatment plant market was dominated by systems from (septic) tank suppliers, but now an engineering company ...
