Water Planet, Inc. and Applied Membranes, Inc. have formed a strategic alliance to jointly market, sell and service nanofiltration and reverse osmosis based water treatment systems relying on Applied Membrane’s standard designs and Water Planet’s IntelliFlux® self-adaptive flux management controls.

As one of the first collaborations under this agreement, Water Planet has sold a multi-stage reverse osmosis-based integrated membrane system for the Kuwait Oil Company to purify brackish groundwater for use in oil production and steam generation.

“This collaboration leverages the strengths of Applied Membranes and Water Planet to deliver a robust water treatment solution to an important customer.
