Hydro Air Research Italia is able to design and manufacture complete systems for purification and/or concentration processes in presence of organic solvents, by means of different membranes, organic or inorganic, suitable for the purpose.
Hydro Air Research Italia can offer a range of new nanofiltration membranes suitable for use in non-aqueous applications. Typical applications for these membranes in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries are solvent exchange, catalyst recycle, organics recovery and products purifications.
Membrane separation of molecules dissolved in organic liquids has emerged as a new area of membrane science during the last decade, with huge potential for applications across chemical-related industry sectors. Common purification processes, such as distillation, extraction, chromatography, adsorption, and crystallisation, can be energy or materials intensive, or suffer from problems of robustness. Solvent stable nanofiltration is a viable alternative or complement to those. The technology consists of using solvent stable membranes for the separation of molecules of different sizes in solution.
