Aquaporin has announced the launch of its new forward osmosis module HFFO14, which is designed for industrial scale applications and installations.
The new HFFO14 has a 13.8 m2 membrane area and delivers six times larger capacity than the current HFFO2 module. The company says that because of its use of the Aquaporin Inside forward osmosis technology, the valuables retention in product concentration is much higher than in conventional solutions.
This means that the HFFO14 module can be used for cold concentration of food, beverages and pharmaceuticals. It also ensures high quality permeate from wastewater treatment and reuse, as the selective aquaporin layer rejects unwanted and difficult to treat compounds in wastewater.
Peter Holme Jensen, CEO of Aquaporin A/S, said the company was very pleased to announce the launch of its new Hollow Fiber Forward Osmosis module HFFO14. “The larger module will allow current and future customers to scale up their FO activities and build industrial sized forward osmosis systems. The HFFO14 is just the first module in a range of promising FO products that are under development.”
