Water scarcity already affects every continent. Around 1.2 billion people, or almost one-fifth of the world's population, live in areas of physical scarcity. In order to meet future water needs, new desalination technologies are increasing globally, to treat seawater, brackish water, wastewaters, and contaminated sources.

Lydall Performance Materials provides a broad portfolio of media to support the worldwide search for cost efficient filtration solutions.  Our non-woven and membrane filtration media are focused on fast growing desalination technologies and micro filtration applications.

Our microglass, synthetic, and membrane technologies, coupled with our multi-layer and laminating capabilities allow us to create custom composites with multiple functions. We encourage partnerships with our customers to develop solutions for the challenges of the future.

LyPore® liquid filtration media is ideally suited for pre-filtration of waste water streams and Solupor® membranes are highly porous with excellent liquid permeability. Combined with a controlled pore size, this makes Solupor membrane suitable for a range of filtration and separation applications.

Typical Applications

  • Membrane distillation
  • Forward osmosis
  • Pervaporation
  • Electrodialysis
  • Prefiltration of waste water
