  • Heat Sanitization Basics for Ultrapure and Pharmaceutical Water

    Even small numbers of bacteria are a problem for critical water systems like pharmaceutical USP water, dialysis water, and ultrapure water for semiconductor manufacturing. Bacteria are often killed with UV-254, chemicals, and heat. Chemical sanitization is often undesirable or prohibited, creating a steady change-over to pure water systems that can be sanitized with heat. Most ...

  • Common Reasons For Syringe Leakage

    The components of even the most durable syringe will eventually fail. The most common symptom of failure may be leakage of your solvent from the syringe. The following are some common reasons for syringe leakage, as well as our recommended solutions. 1. Tip Connection If your syringe hub consists of a PTFE tip, check for small grooves in the PTFE surface. If sufficiently large, ...

  • What is an Ion Exchange System and How Does it Work?

    Ion exchange (IX) systems are used across a variety of industries for water softening, purification, and separation purposes. While the chemistry of individual ion exchange reactions vary from one application to the next, IX is a treatment process where dissolved ions are replaced by other, more desirable, ions of a similar electrical charge. If you’re wondering whether IX is right for your ...

  • Reuse turns stormwater runoff from a problem to an asset

    With so much concern about water scarcity around the world, it seems a no-brainer that rain is a good thing. But nothing’s perfect. Even something as beneficial as precipitation can have its downsides. One problem, of course, is flooding. Another problem you may not have thought of comes with stormwater runoff in urban settings. What’s the problem? In cities, buildings and pavement ...

  • Do You Need a Microfiltration or Ultrafiltration Membrane System for Your Plant?

    Determining whether or not an industrial plant needs a microfiltration (MF) and/or ultrafiltration (UF) membrane system isn’t always as straightforward as it seems. While these systems are not essential for every industrial process, when thoughtfully implemented within an intake, process, or waste stream, they can go a long way in improving a facility’s efficiency and/or cutting ...

  • Combined ultrafiltration-electrodeionization technique for production of high purity water

    Electrodeionization (EDI) is the most common method to produce high purity water used for boiler feed water, microelectronic, and pharmaceutical industries. Commonly, EDI is combined with reverse osmosis (RO) to meet the requirement of EDI feed water, with hardness less than 1 ppm. However, RO requires a relatively high operating pressure and ultrafiltration (UF) as pretreatment which results ...

  • Meet Roman A. Membrane

    I was born in 1964 in San Diego, CA to a researcher at UCLA who worked on a project called reverse osmosis and an engineer who worked with nuclear reactors. In the early 1970’s I found my true calling in a process called separation. Some thought that I invented it so they called it Membrane Separation. I studied electronics and was named the top process in my class electronics is where I ...
