Filtration Innovation: Solving Global Water Shortages with Textile Technology
As the world’s population continues to rise, the scarcity of natural resources has become an issue of global significance. One of the greatest challenges is the availability of clean water. Shawmut is proud to be part of the global push for innovative water filtration technologies as a producer of tricot knit fabrics used as permeate carriers in salt and brackish water reverse-osmosis filtration systems.
SO HOW EXACTLY DOES IT WORK?
Contaminated liquid enters through a tube and proceeds to sift through a series of membrane layers that remove impurities. The permeate carrier is a crucial element in this process because it channels the purified substrate through the tube. Once the liquid has been filtered, it can later be used for drinking water or industrial applications.
Our fabric is Federal Drug Administration (FDA) compliant and certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF).
