Case Studies

Highly-antifouling PVDF membrane products have entered the international market and are being used normally worldwide.
For more information, please see the product page, PVDF Ultrafiltration Membrane.

Ultrafiltration Membrane

Through the transformation of technology industrialization and products performance improvement, the large-scale and continuous production of highly-antifouling PVDF hollow fiber membranes has been realized. The ultrafiltration membrane has fully reached the standard and officially launched to the market in batches. And its productivity is up to 1.2 million square meters every year.
