This version of the CF042 membrane test cell design has been modified for Forward Osmosis (FO) filtration. The specifications and operating principles of the FO cell are similar to the traditional CF042 model.



Forward Osmosis technology is most commonly used for an array of wastewater recycling and water reclamation applications. Areas in which an FO cell may be used include:

  • Water reclamation from oil and gas exploration
  • Landfill wastewater
  • Alternative energy/biogas wastewater
  • Medical/dental wastewater
  • Membrane bioreactors
  • Seawater desalination
  • Radioactive wastewater
  • Carpet manufacturing wastewater
  • Pressure Retarded Osmosis (PRO) to generate electricity

Other uses for Forward Osmosis Cells:

  • Pretreatment for Reverse Osmosis procedure
  • Concentrating juices (grape juice to wine, tomato paste)
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Nutraceuticals
