A wide range of industrial applications uses Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration for the removal of dissolved materials, as they are effective technologies for recycling purposes, treating wastewater, extracting dissolved materials and generating reusable water.

Conventional treatment systems are often complex and demand a variety of operational sources including:

  • Space to accommodate the system
  • High energy costs
  • Chemicals, etc

Whereas, Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration are effective for removing many contaminants like:

  • Heavy metals
  • Organic molecules
  • Total dissolved solids
  • Oil
  • Pesticides
  • Agricultural residuals, etc.

They use relatively compact membranes for separating such substances without the use of coagulant chemicals. Therefore, they both are more efficient and effective than the conventional treatment systems and occupy relatively less operational space. Additionally, the constant development in Nanofiltration membrane technology has resulted in more efficient resistance to organic solvents. Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration can function at room temperature, making it an energy-efficient process.

Further, the presence of metal ions in the water can lead to scaling in the equipment which can hamper your industrial functions and thereby, increasing the operational and maintenance costs. And, Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration can remove such ions without any complexity.

A wide range of industries use Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration technologies for treating their water:


For effective removal of contaminants and minerals from process streams, thereby, increasing the life span of the equipment and minimizing water consumption through reuse purposes.


For recovering valuable soft metals, such as Lithium. Although Nanofiltration is frequently used for treating aqueous solutions, it can also be used for separation of other waste streams, such as in a petroleum plant for oil dewaxing.

Petrochemical & Chemical

As Nanofiltration can process large volumes of liquid, it is applied in chemical production for processes that demand consistent quality in the permeate stream.

Oil & Gas

For usable water generation in areas where drinking water is scarce, such as offshore oil rigs, etc.

Mining & Metals

For treating and recycling waste streams and recovering valuable materials generated by mining operations, metal finishing and plating.

Food & Beverage

For treating process water for reuse purposes and reducing biochemical oxygen demand in wastewater prior to discharge. Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration are also used for a variety of specialized applications, such as the concentration of sugar and dextrose syrup, degumming of solutions in edible oil processing and concentration of whey proteins in the dairy industry.
