To better serve municipal and industrial customers, DuPont is consolidating and rebranding its diverse portfolio of ultrafiltration (UF) membranes for the sustainable purification, conservation and reuse of water.
The DuPont™ IntegraTec™ portfolio of ultrafiltration technologies and products consolidates several legacy ultrafiltration brands– from Inge®, Memcor®, and DuPont Ultrafiltration – into a singular portfolio available to customers.
This new offering makes it easier for DuPont’s 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, toward the goals of high-filtration performance, high recovery, and energy savings.
With a global network of UF experts, DuPont’s team can help customers navigate the IntegraTec™ portfolio to tailor scalable, sustainable water and wastewater filtration solutions for industrial, municipal, and commercial applications.
“DuPont is proud to offer the broadest and most advanced ultrafiltration portfolio in the industry to help our customers find the Best-Fit ultrafiltration technology solutions to water and wastewater filtration challenges,” said Alan Chan, Global Vice President & General Manager, DuPont Water Solutions. “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.”
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 of 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’ current and future challenges, including the increased need to recycle water while reducing the energy requirements to generate clean water.
Ultrafiltration is used in water purification and filtration for numerous industrial, municipal and commercial applications. Ultrafiltration membrane barriers exclude particles 0.02 to 0.05 microns, including bacteria, viruses, and colloids, meeting increasingly stringent water-quality standards around the world.
Supporting customers sustainability goals, 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.
DuPont’s water technologies help purify more than 50 million gallons of water every minute around the world, enable water reuse and recycling, desalination, and the safe access of both ground and surface water. DuPont offers solutions to a variety of water and sustainability challenges through a broad portfolio of water purification and separation technologies including reverse osmosis (RO) membranes, ion exchange resins (IEX), ultrafiltration (UF), electrodeionization (EDI), nanofiltration (NF), membrane bioreactor systems (MBR), membrane aerated biofilm reactors (MABR), and closed-circuit reverse osmosis (CCRO) systems.
