Water Treatment

Water

One of the biggest challenges across the globe, Africa included, is access to clean and safe water. Water is an essential basic need that must be available in order for human beings to survive the next day. Africa has a serious water crisis, despite the continent boasting of having numerous natural water sources such as lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, springs, rainwater, aquifers, and ocean waters.
Over 300 million Africans lack access to clean and safe water for drinking and 700 million are living in poor conditions without adequate sanitation. Lack of access to clean and safe water has frustrated poverty reduction efforts and hindered economic prosperity.
Since water in Africa is a core ingredient for sustainable development, its availability is key to facilitate human survival, socioeconomic development, and healthy ecosystems.
If there is sufficient water for communities, diseases shall be contained and populations will become more productive.
Most of the suffering witnessed by African populations is mainly associated with water scarcity which directly affects human health, causes hunger and starvation, as well as influences security because of water-related conflicts.
In addition, sanitation is a serious challenge that faces the continent because many people, especially those living in disadvantaged urban neighborhoods, lack dedicated sewage systems, which causes them to live in unsanitary conditions threatening the spread of diseases.

Industry leader in ro expertise and membrane applications since 1983™

Our strategic partner, 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.

Products

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.

Markets

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 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

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.

Why applied membranes for solar desalination

Applications for solar ro and uf systems

  • Solar RO plants for brackish water from deepwells with TDS up to 15,000 ppm.
  • Applications: towns and villages, oil fields, work camps, small factories, hospitals, and brewerie.

  • Solar RO plants for brackish and polluted surface water up to 15,000 TDS and 1,500 TTS. The S-ROC has two plants in one: MF/UF and RO plants.
  • Applications: Towns/Villages along polluted rivers, lakes, small factories, hospitals, breweries.

  • Solar RO for desalination plants. It embeds Solar–VFDs for high pressure RO pumps up to 1,000 PSI (TDS up to 45,000).
  • Typical applications to operate coastal small towns and villages, resorts, off-shore oil fields with solar power.

Water treatment pilot plant ro, uf, mf, nf systems for application testing

Pilot plant units

With over 30 years of hands-on experience, Applied Membranes offers custom engineered water treatment pilot testing plants to fit your specific application. We have produced water treatment pilot plants for testing applications using Reverse Osmosis, Ultrafiltration, Nanofiltration, or Microfiltration technology for testing applications such as medical, pharmaceutical, USP, dairy, electro-coat paint, and more.
AMI welcomes the opportunity to work with you to fulfill your specific filtration needs. Please contact us for a quotation.
