Filtration and Separation in Emerging Markets and other Industrial Applications

Water is used in virtually every step of every manufacturing process every day. That’s why it’s so important to ensure your filtration and separation helps to meet your efficiency, productivity, regulatory and conservation goals.

Whether it’s incoming raw materials, continuous or batch process or final filtration, 3M has the solutions you need to help you to maximize and streamline your water and application processes.

Applications for Emerging Markets and other Industrial Applications


Obviously it’s important to desalinate sea water before using it for your manufacturing processes or municipal water needs, but it’s also important to do it efficiently. 3M filtration and separation products can help remove suspended solids and dissolved gasses from ocean water before the reverse osmosis process which is key to longer filter life and successful desalination.
