Pentair launches X-Flow technology at WEFTEC

With X-Flow, Pentair delivers membrane technology to OEM’s, partners and contractors through a worldwide network. The new X-Flow Helix technology enables users of heavy-duty membrane technology to improve their operations and reduce operational costs.

Optimized membrane performance

Helix provides the solution to the problem of membrane fouling in high-solids ultrafiltration (UF). Inside the tubular membrane modules, the buildup of insoluble particles results in a cake layer at the membrane wall, which increases energy consumption and decreases overall performance. The common answer is to step up the crossflow speed and energy use, and accept the drop in efficiency and productivity.

Compact 75G membrane

The Compact 75G, also exhibited at WEFTEC, is the newest addition to Pentair’s X-Flow Compact product range featuring the new Helix technology. Pentair developed the X-Flow Compact 75G, a glass fiber-reinforced epoxy module with high mechanical strength and chemical resistance, for the most demanding applications, including large water treatment plants and Produced Water treatment in the oil & gas industry.
