Ampac USA® Forward Osmosis (FO) System enables high rejection of contaminants and low reverse back diffusion using only osmotic pressure.
the FO1000 Forward Osmosis Plants are highly capable of rejecting contaminants and/or retaining valuable compounds.
The FO1000 Membrane Technology enables higher rejections using proteins in the active layer that are virtually 100% selective to water molecules, which drastically lowers back diffusion of draw solutes.
Ideal FO applications include:
- The Concentration of valuable components when you want to retain aromas, colors, flavors, and nutrients. Examples include the concentration of milk protein, beer, coffee, fruit juices, etc.
- Pre-treatment of difficult wastewater before reverse osmosis (RO) treatment. Low fouling propensity of FO protects the RO membrane while the double membrane barrier (FO and RO) generates high quality permeate water without micro-pollutants and xenobiotics.
- Zero or Minimal Liquid Discharge applications where the aim is to reach high water recovery resulting in a minimum amount of liquid waste to be treated such in Cannabis Waste Water Applications.
The FO1000 has impressive high rejection rates and low back diffusion due to the proteins coated on the lumen side of the fibers.
