Our R&D department in the Netherlands consists of around 30 highly educated specialists who focus on various development areas, including membrane technology, process development, beer filtration, and membrane housings (modules). They work together closely with other Pentair specialists to create the operational advantages our customers need to be successful in competitive commercial environments.
The membranes developed in the R&D department are tested in collaboration with the process and beer groups to ensure continuous focus on the right parameters. These may include technical issues such as membrane diameters, membrane strength, and fluid dynamics. The conceptual processes and membranes are subsequently tested in different applications to gain more insight into behavioral characteristics and actual performance in specific applications.
