Industrial Water Filtration

High-performance filter solutions

Solve water filtration challenges in industrial environments

Water filtration challenges can wreak havoc to industrial systems. Porex provides high-performance solutions including tubular membrane filters, underdrain support plates and standard filter housings for industrial water filtration, industrial wastewater and municipal wastewater applications.

As the global leader in porous polymer technology, Porex developed unique industrial wastewater treatment filtration solutions for microfiltration and ultrafiltration. Tubular Membrane Filter (TMF™) modules are long-lasting, back-washable filters that meet the needs of solid/liquid separation of industrial wastewater treatment and recycling.  The TMF modules also act as a reliable pre-treatment stage in zero-liquid discharge (ZLD) systems.

Porex TMF modules contain patented membrane tubes with a uniform, thermally bonded omnidirectional substrate pore structure that provides an optimized support structure for tubular membranes and enhanced membrane durability.  This structure provides consistent and reliable solid/liquid separations and long service life. The structural composite membranes are composed of PVDF membranes bonded to a PE substrate, which makes them much stronger and more durable than other similar tubular membrane filters in the market.

Options for selecting TMF modules


TMF modules are widely used in the following applications where each module acts as reliable pre-treatment of a membrane desalination unit, or as a guarantee before wastewater emission:

  • Enhanced chemical softening system for high hardness and/or high silica industry water including RO brine, CT blowdown, bio-treated landfill leachate, FGD wastewater of power plant and other kinds of combined wastewater
  • As a high performance solid/liquid separation unit after chemical reaction stage in heavy metal treatment & recycling system
  • Fluoride reduction for wastewater in semiconductor, solar cell or metals manufacturing industries
  • Fine particle removal for some processing wastewater, such as cutting and/or back grinding wastewater when processing semiconductor integrated circuit wafer
  • Many other solid/liquid separations for industry wastewater
