NX Filtration, a producer of innovative hollow fibre membrane solutions, and Hydranautics, one of the global leaders in membrane technology and part of the Nitto Group, have announced that NX Filtration will start production and global distribution of various HYDRAcapTM ultrafiltration products that were previously supplied by Hydranautics.
The HYDRAcapTM products are deployed globally for a broad range of applications such as pre-treatment for reverse osmosis, surface water treatment and wastewater treatment.
The agreement covers the HYDRAcapTM Polyether Sulfone (PES) hollow fibre ultrafiltration product line based on the inside-out filtration concept. These characteristics, that provide an ideal chemical and thermal stability for use in robust filtration processes, fit well with NX Filtration’s broader product portfolio of hollow fibre Microfiltration, Ultrafiltration and Nanofiltration solutions. Hydranautics will continue to deliver its Polyvinylidene Difluoride (PVDF) based outside-in membrane products.
Masaaki Ando, President of Hydranautics, commented, “Through this agreement with NX Filtration we assure that our customers continue to receive high quality HYDRAcapTM modules. NX Filtration offers a wealth of membrane experience and invests in innovative solutions for the future. We have established a close liaison with NX Filtration and will jointly work on a smooth transition period offering optimal service to our customer base.”
Michiel Staatsen, CEO of NX Filtration, added, “We are proud to be selected by Hydranautics, which is a testimony to our reputation of offering high-quality innovative membrane products. We are dedicated to offer Hydranautics’ customer base a continuation of outstanding products, high service and access to our global team of membrane experts.”
