WATER & WASTEWATER ASIA July / August 2018 72 V O N T R O N M E M B R A N E T ECHNOLOGY CO . , LTD . specialises in R&D (research and development), and manufacture and technical service of reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration (NF) membrane elements. Possessing the core technology and capability for fabrication of membrane sheets, Vontron is the go-to provider for system design and applied service with powerful technical support. Vontron’smain products currently use reverse osmosis, a water purification technology that uses a semipermeable membrane to remove ions, molecules and larger particles from drinking water. On e o f t h e l a r g e - s c a l e manufacturers of compound RO membranes in China, Vontron is producing 30 million square meters of RO and NF membrane sheets annually. A f t e r t he RO memb r ane p r oduc t i on l i ne unde rwen t emhancement with technologies imported from the United States in 2001, the product series produced by Vontron, which include industrial- purpose element, seawater desalination e l ement , f ou l i ng- resistant element, oxidation resistant element and more, is now leading globally in terms of quality and technological level. Vontron is now the world’s second largest supplier of dry-type membrane elements with the capacity for mass production. Moreover, t h e o x i d a t i o n - resistant membrane and fouling- resistant membrane have technical advantages as Vontron has filed for intellectual property rights. These products have been widely applied in the wastewater treatment field. The RO membranes have also been widely used in the food and hygiene industries such as pharmaceutical abstraction, germ-free drinkingwater as a measure to prevent organic and biological contamination. Having developed various specifications of compound RO membranes covering 12 series and more than 70models, all of Vontron’s product series adopt state-of-the- art fouling-resistant technology that meet international standards and are certified with NSF Standards. Vontron membranes are broadly applied to seawater desalination, purification of drinking water, depuration of sewage and concentration/abstraction. Their customers come from all parts of the world – USA, India, Italy, Spain, Germany, Turkey, Korea, Japan, Brazil and Southeast Asia, hence the global presence of sales distributors. Founded in 2000, Vontron is a young but formidable player in the water treatment market, holding a significant 40 per cent market share in the reverse osmosis market, despite the presence of several foreign giants in China.
