Microfiltration elements to tackle challenging waters

New microfiltration elements based on HYDRAcap® Max technology have been introduced by Nitto Denko/Hydranautics to treat highly challenging waters.

The technology provides very high membrane surface area, resulting in ultra-low footprint, minimizing capital cost. The crystalline PVDF membrane fiber is extremely strong and durable, resulting in minimal fiber breakage, greatly reducing operating costs while maintaining optimal filtration performance.

Additionally, HYDRAcap Max can operate at high fluxes without the need for backwash and with minimal cleaning, resulting in very high water recovery.

Key benefits of the innovative technology are:

  • Lower capital and operating costs
  • Increased reliability
  • Ability to treat challenging waters
  • Simplicity of operation
  • The new elements are:
    HYDRAcap® Max 80 (105 m²)
    HYDRAcap® Max 60 (78 m²)

    Hydranautics, headquartered in Oceanside California, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nitto Denko and manufactures and supplies reverse-osmosis and ultrafiltration membranes for desalination, wastewater treatment and water reuse.
