Acquisition will expand GE’s ultrafiltration membrane wastewater treatment offerings.

GE agrees to acquire IMT Solutions, a private Netherlands-based manufacturer of ultrafiltration and microfiltration membranes for water treatment.

IMT’s products, including its SevenBore ultrafiltration membranes, are suitable for high-pressure applications and for use in upstream offshore oil and gas operations.

Ultrafiltration membranes are utilized for drinking water, wastewater, tertiary and water reuse applications as well as industrial feedwater and reverse osmosis pretreatment. The technology is operational in thousands of municipal, industrial and commercial applications worldwide, according to GE. GE ZeeWeed 500D membranes are used for tough-to-treat and high solids applications; GE ZeeWeed 1000 membranes are for large plants and retrofit opportunities, and GE ZeeWeed 1500 membranes are used in small- to medium-sized plants.
