DAW has developed and designed its own membrane system for various applications. By introducing the system, we encourage customers to choose the best and the most competitive process which fits into their specific needs. DAW can provide very accurate separation system by developing and applying hybrid manufacturing skills into industrial water, water waste, recycling water, food & bio, specialty separation and etc.
Membrane separation processes operate without heating and therefore use less energy than conventional thermal separation processes such as distillation, sublimation or crystallization. Important technical applications include the production of drinking water by reverse osmosis , filtration in the food industry, the recovery of organic vapors such as petro-chemical vapor recovery and the electrolysis for chlorine production.
In waste water treatment, membrane technology is becoming increasingly important. With the help of ultra/microfiltration it is possible to remove particles, colloids and macromolecules, so that waste-water can be disinfected in this way. This is needed if waste-water is discharged into sensitive waters especially those designated for contact water sports and recreation.
About half of the market is in medical applications such as use in artificial kidneys to remove toxic substances by hemodialysis and as artificial lung for bubble free supply of oxygen in the blood. The importance of membrane technology is growing in the field of environmental. Even in modern energy recovery techniques membranes are increasingly used, for example in fuel cells and in osmotic power plants.
