VSEP helps meet discharge guidelines, recycles water and improves mine economics
Since their development as lab filters in the early 1960s, polymeric membranes have grown in the number of uses at exponential rates. Membrane architecture and process design itself has undergone significant advancement. A unique membrane filtration system, known as V✧SEP (Vibratory Shear Enhanced Process), was developed by New Logic of Emeryville California. The technology employs vibrational oscillation of the membrane surface to improve the relative throughput per area of membrane used. This oscillation is used to prevent colloidal fouling of the membrane surface.
