TIPS
     
DiagramIn the most arid regions, extreme measures must be taken to meet the water needs of communities. These include wastewater reuse and desalination. Desalination is the removal of salts and other constituents from sea water to produce drinking water or water for use in industry. Conventionally, this had been accomplished using different forms of distillation, however this required significant energy which led to alternative innovations. One such innovation was the application of reverse osmosis membranes to the treatment of seawater. Over the years, with advances in membrane and pretreatment technology, this has proven to be the most cost-effective method for desalination and is now widely applied. Continued innovation and operational cost reductions has been a boon to the market which has tripled since 2000 and is expected to grow well into the future.

Scinor SMT600 ultrafiltration membranes are ideal for pretreatiment upstream of reverse osmosis and nanofiltration membranes in the seawater desalination process as they cost-effectively remove all solids in the source water which increases the efficiency of the downstream RO membranes. Ultrafiltration membranes, in general, have been proven to provide a more effective barrier ahead of RO membranes and Scinor membranes which utilize TIPS PVDF provides the added advantages of higher flux and longer membrane life which increases plant efficiency.
