Water treatment technologies such as reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration are not new. For years, municipalities, commercial entities and even homeowners have been employing these technologies to help purify water. But, as economic growth and water scarcity issues cause mounting pressure on the water infrastructure, more industrial water consumers are looking at how these technologies can aid in their water reuse efforts.
For many industries, reusing water means transforming low quality wastewater and feedwater into high quality water for use in process heating or cooling applications. It is a growing global trend that provides economic benefits for companies.
