Process water

Constantly rising costs for drinking and process water as well as for wastewater disposal lead more and more industrial companies that to reduce their pollution and the amount of industrial wastewater. Reducing water consumption and reusing treated water are increasingly important in the industrial sector.

Membrane processes can be used in the industrial sector both as a downstream process and as a production-integrated process. The advantages of using membrane technology by industrial water:

  • - Separation of valuable materials, auxiliary materials, byproducts and solvents
  • - Reuse of the concentrates as raw material or secondary raw material respectively cost-efficient disposal
  • - Avoiding of polluted wastewater flows

Many chemical processing operations require the removal of water to achieve greater product recovery, reduce spent material disposal costs, and increase plant efficiency. Membranes are an extremely efficient means to accomplish filtration and separation and offer the additional benefits of reduced energy consumption and operating costs over traditional treatment methods. Chemical companies can use the Membranfiltration systems for front-end water treatment, often with reverse osmosis membranes, to ensure consistent water quality in their processes, as well as to recover and conserve water. Membranfiltration can be used to concentrate spent materials for disposal or recycling.
