MICRODYN-NADIR has announced the acquisition of specialty membrane company TriSep Corporation. The Goleta, California, based company has profound experience and expertise in the area of reverse osmosis and nanofiltration and has built a strong reputation for successfully customizing solutions to the need of their broad customer base. The acquisition will allow MICRODYN-NADIR to be a one-stop shop with a wide range of membrane filtration products. Customers will benefit from having one membrane supplier to meet...
Water is increasingly gaining importance. Not only is this the case in arid regions but also in countries like Germany. Water is a limited resource and is necessary for the preservation of human life and economic growth. In both cases quality and availability play a major role.
The isolation of the pure product from the fermentation broth displays a major challenge to modern separation technology. Membrane technology has established itself as a key technology in this field since it offers several unique advantages compared to thermal, physical or chemical separation techniques.
Membrane technology - as a modern and innovative technology - has advanced significantly in the last few years and has established itself in different sectors. The trend towards "specialized" membranes for specific applications is increasingly taking root resulting in spiral wound modules and membrane technology establishing themselves as state of the art technology within the food processing industry.
The essential challenges of today are to ensure cost effective treatment and recycling processes for water and wastewater. Membrane technology solves this task by being an innovative and trendsetting technology. Today membranes are successfully used for the treatment of municipal and industrial wastewater as well as for the production of drinking and process water from surface water. Membrane technology and membrane bioreactors (MBR) are especially important in arid zones for the recovery of clean water for reuse...
Membrane technology has made major progress in recent years and is nowadays the method of choice for many processes in the chemical industry, wherever substances are to be separated efficiently and gently. A prime example of this is dia-filtration, in which solutes and particles with higher molecular weights are retained while solutes with lower molecular weights are "washed" out of the process fluid.
As most tropical countries face unpredictable rain falls, building sites have to be managed differently. In Singapore an effective Erosion Control Measure (ECM) was required at a building site, in order to treat the storm water before discharging it to the public drain.
