In crossflow filtration, an incoming feed stream passes across the surface of a crossflow membrane, and two exiting streams are generated: a permeate stream (which passes through the membrane) and a retentate stream (which is retained by the membrane.) In crossflow filtration the permeate stream is the target stream (i.e., the filtered wine), whereas in reverse osmosis, the streams are split, something is done to one stream and then the two are put back together, altered by the "treatment."
Positioned in the growing seawater desalination markets of the Middle East, this joint venture intends to distribute reverse osmosis membrane elements for seawater desalination not only in Saudi Arabia but also in other regions of the Middle and Near East as well as in the countries of North Africa.
