DuPont rebrands UF membrane portfolio as IntegraTec

DuPont is consolidating and rebranding its diverse portfolio of ultrafiltration (UF) membranes for the sustainable purification, conservation and reuse of water as IntegraTec, to better serve municipal and industrial customers.

The DuPont IntegraTec portfolio of ultrafiltration technologies and products consolidates several legacy ultrafiltration brands– from Inge, Memcor and DuPont Ultrafiltration – into a singular portfolio.

DuPont says that this new offering will make it easier for its customers to harness the benefits of the Best-Fit ultrafiltration technology, either to be used alone or as a part of a multi-technology water treatment solution.

“With a focus on our customers’ goals for sustainability, DuPont will help our customers leverage the wider IntegraTec portfolio to meet their goals to increase access to high quality water through more energy efficient and circular processes,” said Alan Chan, Global Vice President & General Manager, DuPont Water Solutions.

The portfolio represents a diverse set of technologies in use at more than 3,000 installations around the world to produce a combined 50 million cubic meters of water every day. With more than 90 years of collective experience in ultrafiltration technologies, IntegraTec is underpinned by more than 200 patents, a commitment to continued innovation and a global network of technical support professionals and labs that can assist with the delivery of tailored solutions for customers.

The DuPont IntegraTec product portfolio features an extensive and diverse range of reliable and durable modules, providing flexibility in system design to meet the specific priorities and needs of individual customers; PVDF, PES and PP membrane chemistries are available, and modules can be configured in either a pressurized or submerged configuration. Integrated ultrafiltration options are also available that combine the screening and UF stages within a single compact vessel to reduce the plant footprint and enhance the robustness of the solution.

In January 2020, DuPont completed the acquisitions of inge GmbH and Memcor, adding to its own portfolio of water purification and separation technologies, including ultrafiltration. DuPont brought together the three distinct sets of ultrafiltration technologies to meet customers’ challenges, including the increased need to recycle water while reducing the energy requirements to generate clean water.

Ultrafiltration, used alone, does not require the use of pretreatment chemicals or associated costs for sludge disposal. When used as a pretreatment for reverse osmosis (RO), UF reduces RO membrane fouling, lowering chemical usage and operating costs.
