From Wastewater Treatment
Membrane Systems are mechanical pressure driven processes that separate contaminants in waste streams from water. At the heart of every system is a semi-permeable micro-porous membrane acting as a positive physical barrier that performs the separations. Membrane pore size can be chosen to separate large molecules such as oil, colloidal materials and suspended solids from water.
Waste water feed is introduced into the membrane module(s) flowing across the surface of the membrane under pressure and high velocity allowing the water phase to pass through the membrane as (permeate) free of contaminants. These contaminants are rejected by the membrane and are collected as (concentrate).
This cross-flow circulation and high turbulence creates a self cleaning operation that prevents the build-up of solids and other contaminants at the membrane filter surface. Cross-flow membrane filtration will produce high filtration rates and maintain extended periods of uninterrupted operation. Membrane technology is ideally suited for variable waste stream applications. Since the membrane acts as a physical barrier, the system will consistently produce high quality effluent even when the feed characteristics change and the loading of contaminants vary.
Membrane technology provides industrial grade wastewater treatment!
There are four basic groups of membrane filtration technology:
The wastewater type, characteristics, form of contaminants and treatment goals are the deciding factors that determine which membrane technology is selected for your application.
Ultrafiltration (UF) membrane is commonly used for most industrial wastewater applications. UF membrane supplied in 3 basic configurations, hollow fiber, spiral & wide channel tubular.
Industrial wastewater problems are best solved using a wide channel configuration.
Our membrane systems offer efficient, cost effective treatment and re-use systems for a
variety of complex waste water applications, due to our total systems approach, modular systems and turn-key solutions option. We offer existing systems retrofits and options for water reuse and ZERO discharge. Interested yet? Call when you want to get serious about your waste water treatment needs.
