Water treatment

Industry Leader in RO Expertise and Membrane Applications since 1983™

Applied Membranes, Inc. is a manufacturer and distributor of Reverse Osmosis Membranes, Systems and Components, both commercial and residential. We have been manufacturing Reverse Osmosis Systems, RO Membranes and Water Filtration Components under the AMI label for over 30 years. AMI Products have earned an industry-wide reputation for their high quality and superior performance.


Applied Membranes manufactures commercial and industrial reverse osmosis systems, from 100 gallons per day to millions of gallons per day. These systems also include all pretreatment such as Carbon Filters, Water Softeners, Iron Filters and post-treatment equipment such as Electrodeionization, UV Systems, and Ozone Systems.

Applied Membranes also manufactures reverse osmosis membrane elements for reverse osmosis, Nanofiltration, Ultrafiltration and Microfiltration.

We also carry every component used in building reverse osmosis systems of any size. Our large inventory of these components allows us to give our customers a fast and efficient service. We are a master stocking distributor for many of the prominent brands in the water treatment industry. We are also the largest stocking distributor of FilmTec (Dow) membranes.
Applied Membranes is constantly striving to keep up with new products and new technology.


Applied Membranes sells systems for all applications where reverse osmosis technology is proven and competitive. Examples of these applications are ultrapure water for semiconductor and pharmaceutical industry; potable water from well, river or sea water; rinse water for manufacturing, car wash, or electroplating industry; central water supply for hemodialysis; water recycle for municipal of industrial water.

Solar Powered UF and RO Water Treatment Systems

Solar Containerized RO & UF Water Treatment Systems

Solar Desalination Plants up to 50GPM

Powered only by Solar Energy, Applied Membranes’ Solar Ultrafiltration and Reverse Osmosis systems treat river and well water to produce water for drinking, irrigation, agriculture and other uses.

Hundreds of these systems are currently in operation treating water with TDS of up to 10,000 PPM and product flow of up to 50 gallons/minute. Designed to produce the maximum of treated water with the lowest possible energy these systems are compact and made for outdoor use.

Applied Membranes specializes in manufacturing reliable plug & play ISO containerized systems for virtually any mobile water treatment solution. Our 20 & 40 foot, high-cube containers include insulation and fine internal and external finishing.

AMI offers a variety of mobile water purification systems and units for fast response for emergency situations, supplemental or temporary requirements. Our mobile system solutions are available in a full range of applications such as Reverse Osmosis, Ultrafiltration, Nanofiltration, Seawater Desalination, Softening & Filtration and more. Mobile water treatment systems are available for purchase or for leasing.

Benefits of Solar Powered Desalination Systems

  • Self-Contained Operation; Containerized and Portable for Water Treatment in Remote Locations
  • Highly Efficient, Customizable and Economical
  • Conservatively Engineered for Reliable, Long Term Performance
  • Factory Tested to Ensure Trouble-Free Operation
  • Microprocessor or PLC Controlled with Built-In GPRS for Remote data & Control Communication
  • Solar Power up To 60 KW to Operate RO Plants up to 150,000 GPD (500 m3/day)

Solar Handles 100% of Daily Plant Production

S-ROC plants have a great economic advantage – they reduce RO operating cost by 50% compared to grid or diesel generators. Solar can operate RO plants at 100% daily design capacity during 6-8 hours, and if required uses AC power (if it is available) as back up at night time in hybrid mode (solar and AC) to operate 24 hours.
