Single header design reduces energy, minimizes downtime, and increases flux
Koch Membrane Systems Inc. (KMS) announced that it supplied Puron membrane bioreactor (MBR) ultrafiltration modules to a power plant located in Inner Mongolia, China. The project is the first in China’s power industry to use Puron ® MBR membranes for water reuse.
Municipal wastewater will be treated in an aerobic MBR using Puron hollow fiber membranes, followed by reverse osmosis (RO). The treated water will then be used as boiler make-up water. The plant has a capacity of 18,000 cu meters per day (4.8 mgd).
The technology was selected based on permeate quality, energy consumption & chemical consumption compared with competitive products
Koch Membrane Systems Inc. (KMS) has installed its Puron HF ultrafiltration (UF) modules at a major steel mill in Inner Mongolia, China. The system is the first large application of the Puron HF product in the metals industry, with a capacity of 57,600 cu meters per day (15.2 million gal per day).
The full ultrafiltration membrane retrofit project is scheduled to be completed over the course of a year
Koch Membrane Systems Inc. (KMS) has successfully started-up the initial phase of its retrofit to the ultrafiltration (UF) system at the City of Del Rio’s water treatment plant located in Del Rio, Texas. The full retrofit project is scheduled to be completed over the course of a year.
The system's technological enhancements improve performance & reduce installation costs
Membrane systems for treating drinking water keep evolving, and the recent introduction of the Memcor CPII ultrafiltration (UF) system is no exception. The Memcor CP II system from Evoqua Water Technologies is a pressurized, pre-engineered membrane system with a modular building-block configuration and ultra-compact footprint.
The AWWA/AMTA Membrane Technology Conference will be held March 10 to 14, 2014 in Las Vegas
QUA will introduce the EnviQ submerged ultrafiltration membranes for wastewater treatment and recycle applications as part of the membrane bioreactor (MBR) process the AWWA/AMTA Membrane Technology Conference, March 10 to 14, 2014 in Las Vegas.
The plant will produce 200,000 cu meters of drinking water per day
The Iraqi Ministry for Municipalities and Public Works has chosen Veolia to build and operate for five years a desalination plant in Basra, Iraq. For Veolia, this contract represents cumulated sales of $115 million.
Limited water resources and conflict over its use have made water a crucial resource for Iraq's development, especially in the country's south. Water in this part of Iraq is mainly sourced from the Euphrates—which has a high salt content—and water from the Persian Gulf.
Koch Membrane Systems’ TARGA II hollow fiber ultrafiltration systems are available for drinking water, seawater RO pretreatment, industrial water treatment, and tertiary wastewater treatment. TARGA II HF membranes can be installed in a custom system or provided in prepackaged, skid-mounted systems with capacities from 10,000 to 100,000 gal per day.
GE to use ZeeWeed MBR technology, EDR, RO and ion exchange polishing technologies
Russian oil company Bashneft will use GE’s ZeeWeed membrane bioreactor (MBR), electrodialysis reversal (EDR) and reverse osmosis (RO) technologies for treatment of refinery wastewater from the Bashneft-Ufaneftekhim oil processing complex and other enterprises of the Northern Industrial Block of Ufa. Strict discharge regulations, and the need to reuse the treated water, led Bashneft to choose GE's technology for its new wastewater treatment plant.
Q-SEP Hollow Fiber ultrafiltration modules contain UF membranes manufactured with QUA’s Cloud Point Precipitation method. This process ensures a high pore density along the length of the fiber and uniform pore-size distribution in the membrane. The modules deliver effective performance, and product water quality is higher than that from conventional UF modules, with a low silt density index and excellent rejection of bacteria and viruses.
Aiming to reduce usage of freshwater supplies in industrial city
With water conservation remaining a key goal of efforts to modernize Russia’s water supply infrastructure, GE announced the Ekaterinburg Municipal Unitary Enterprise Vodokanal utility has selected GE’s ZeeWeed* 500D ultrafiltration membrane technology to boost the water recovery capacity of its existing water treatment plant.
