ROSEMONT, Ill. – US water treatment company Culligan International has launched an Industrial Water (IW) Reverse Osmosis System membrane system to treat a variety of industrial and commercial water treatment processes.

Available for flow requirements from 22 to 200 gallons per minute (GPM) with salinity levels up to 4,500 parts-per-million (PPM), the system is designed for applications such as the pre-treatment for high-purity requirements, biopharmaceutical manufacturing, water jet cutting, potabilization for drinking water, power generation and more.

Culligan said its configurator tool offers nearly 100 different pre-engineered combinations of features to be built into a perfect reverse osmosis application.

“Our new IW Reverse Osmosis System is a complete solution designed for the most demanding commercial, industrial and municipal applications,” said Matt Burns, product manager at Culligan International.

“Not only does the low-energy membrane technology remove more than 99% of contaminants including dissolved minerals, bacteria and other impurities, but it also produces water suitable for high-purity applications such as boiler feed and ingredient water for food and beverage production.”
