Field of Use
Asahi Kasei hollow fiber Microza membrane filters are employed in water treatment and for separation and purification in a variety of industries including electronics, municipal water, wastewater, power generation, automotive, pharmaceutical, food, chemical, and environment related fields. As a most advanced hollow fiber membrane filtration technology, Microza products are contributing to environmental protection and energy conservation in a global market.
Ultrapure Water purified to extreme low particle levels is indispensable in the manufacture of semiconductors. Microza has become a global standard for production of ultrapure water and is also widely used in semiconductor wastewater recovery.
Power Plants
Microza has been deployed at nuclear power plants where large volumes of purified recycled water is required with the iron particulates exposed to radiation removed. Increasingly, Microza is also being used in fossil fuel power plants for purification of makeup and recycle discharge water.
Potable Water
In portable water treatment plants, filtration employing membranes is rapidly replacing traditional coagulation and sedimentation filtration, in part due to a membrane system's inherent smaller footprint. Microza systems are installed at a large number of potable water treatment plants throughout the world and are receiving high ratings from users.
Automotive / Industrial
Microza systems are used in electrodeposition painting production lines in the automotive, home appliance, construction material, and construction equipment industries, and for many other products. These Microza systems reduce production costs and reduce the environmental impact from electrodeposition painting processes. Microza is receiving the highest rating in these applications.
Wastewater / Sewage
Recovery of wastewater is important for environmental protection and water conservation. Microza has been installed at a large leisure park and at industrial plants to efficiently clarify sewage and factory wastewater for recycling.
Pharmaceutical and Food
In pharmaceutical and food industries, Microza is used to remove impurities in the manufacture of raw materials for biotechnology. Microza is widely used for enzyme concentration, antibiotic manufacture, and for production of water for injection (WFI) and highly purified water.
Chemical Industry
In production processes for photographic materials and copy inks, Microza systems are being used to efficiently remove low molecular weight constituents from raw material solutions containing fine and highly dispersed particles. Microza competes with traditional decanting processes, and is being widely deployed in an increasing number of raw material manufacturing processes.
