Nano filtration water treatment is much the same as reverse osmosis technology. The key difference is the lower rejection levels - nano filtration is used where the high salt rejection of reverse osmosis is not necessary. Our Nano filtration systems offer a cost-effective alternative to commercial & whole house reverse osmosis units as nanofiltration systems can be operated at lower pressures and provide hard water softening, known as membrane softening. This eliminates the need for an additional water softener, saving the customer time, money, and salt maintenance from a typical softener. The level of dissolved solids to be removed is less than what is typically encountered in brackish water or seawater. As such, nano filtration is especially well-suited for treatment of municipal city tap water, well water, or water from surface sources like rivers and lakes.
Nano Membranes provide high productivity performance while removing a high percentage of salts, nitrate, and organic compounds such as pesticides, herbicides and THM precursors. The low net driving pressure NF membrane allows the removal of these compounds at low operating pressures. NF also removes hardness from water, which accounts for NF membranes sometimes being called softening membranes. Applications include whole house water treatment - drinking water - water softening - commercial filtration - farming - agriculture - livestock - greenhouses - irrigation - and more!
