We know that innovation in membrane treatment solutions is critical to meet the rising demand for ultra-pure water.
This impacts industries from microelectronics and municipal drinking water systems to industrial boilers, seawater desalination, food and beverage processing, pharmaceutical production, power, wastewater reclamation and recycling efforts in factories and across manufacturers around the world.
Over the past year, talented experts from Kurita and Avista worked together to build a market-leading membrane treatment solutions platform.
We are enhancing our R&D processes, accelerating our speed to market, and expanding our geographic footprint to become faster and more competitive.
We’re launching new membrane chemicals, expanding our investments and global manufacturing capabilities, and aggressively building a foundation of membrane technical knowledge across the Kurita companies and Avista partners–all so we can keep growing for many more years to come.
In February, Kurita established the Avista Center of Excellence (CoE), comprised of teams located in the United States, Japan, Malaysia, and the United Kingdom. This group led Kurita’s first global evaluation of almost 200 membrane chemicals, held by both companies. The result of this effort is a product line that can be manufactured globally and covers most scales and foulants seen around the world.
The Avista global line of products includes Vitec antiscalants, RoClean membrane cleaners, biocides, RoQuest coagulants, and Kuriverter AC chlorine scavengers.
The Avista CoE also unified a variety of autopsy test methods and troubleshooting techniques as well as developed training programs to strengthen and expand Avista technical support and services, worldwide.
Although COVID-19 may have caused some delays and prevented travel, it strengthened our virtual collaboration and global connectiveness. We bridged cultures and language barriers to achieve real global collaboration as one team.
As a global brand of Kurita, we will solve the challenges faced by our customers worldwide–today and in the future.
