FO range launched for municipal and industrial users

Forward-osmosis (FO) membrane manufacturer Hydration Technology Innovations LLC (HTI) has launched a branded OsMem™ family of high-performance FO membranes and modules for municipal and industrial customers.

HTI is the world's only commercial manufacturer of FO membranes, modules and systems.

The OsMem™ family of products includes all of HTI's proprietary FO membranes configured for various uses from membrane bioreactors to oil and gas wastewater filtration. OsMem™ spiral-wound membrane modules are available in standard module sizes ranging from 2.5 in x 21in to 8.0 in x 40 in. Custom sizes are available upon request. The OsMem™ membrane is also available in unique flat-sheet cartridge plate modules for very difficult waste streams.

"We are offering the range of modules in support of our customers growing need to treat difficult separation problems in the water and wastewater market sectors", said Mark Lambert, Corporate Development Director for HTI. "We are pleased to make available a standard product offering using traditional module sizes well known by the industry".

HTI manufactures a proprietary FO membrane material that allows water to migrate through the membrane, powered only by a draw solution on the clean water side of the membrane, leaving behind virtually all contaminants. This eliminates the need for high pumping pressure found in many traditional membrane filtration systems.

Specific membrane selection is based on application and water quality requirements. HTI's application engineers are available to assist with membrane selection, module design and system support for a wide variety of industries.
