GEA Filtration - Niro Inc.GEA Filtration, is a world leader in the application of cross-flow membrane filtration in the food, dairy, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries, has introduced sanitary, high concentration reverse osmosis technology. For more than a quarter century reverse osmosis has proven to be a cost-effective technology for the non-thermal de-watering of process streams in the sanitary process industries. However, concentration was generally limited, depending on exact product characteristics, to total solids levels in the teens to lower twenties. GEA Filtration has developed high concentration sanitary design reverse osmosis plants constructed for concentrations up to about 30% total solids. With rising fuel costs, this can afford substantial operating cost savings from transportation or other thermal de-watering techniques.
