These ultrafiltration membranes offer extreme hydrophilicity

The PolyCera Hydro (photo) is a new ultrafiltration membrane for drinking water applications where total suspended solids (TSS), turbidity and pathogen removal are of concern. PolyCera Hydro can be used in place of conventional polymeric membranes for drinking-water treatment in high-purity and ultrapure water filtration, as well as in surface water, seawater and groundwater treatment facilities. While PolyCera Hydro is designed for drinking-water applications, the PolyCera Titan model is available for industrial wastewater treatment. All PolyCera membranes offer extreme hydrophilicity, which leads to improved fouling resistance and ease of cleaning, says the manufacturer. The membranes are stable in extreme pH conditions, high temperatures and oxidants, and are highly tolerant to oil and solvents. — Water Planet, Los Angeles, Calif.
