Koch Membrane Showcases RO systems at ACE09

Koch Membrane Systems, Inc. (KMS) is showcasing its MegaMagnum reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration systems for industrial and municipal applications, and its Puron submerged membrane modules for large-scale membrane bioreactor (MBR) applications at the ACE09 tradeshow, June 14 to 17 in San Diego, Calif.

The MegaMagnum RO and NF systems utilize the world’s highest area spiral-wound membrane elements to significantly reduce the complexity, footprint and installation time of municipal and industrial water treatment systems. Plants designed around a MegaMagnum solution require only half the area of floor space compared to a conventional 8-in. rack and use only one-seventh the amount of elements to produce the same volume and quality of water as conventional RO system operating at similar fluxes and pressures.

The pre-engineered packaged skids are designed to facilitate installation and start-up when schedules are tight. KMS makes them available in four configurations with nominal flow capacities ranging from 0.5 to 2 million gal per day.

The 1,500-sq meter Puron module is designed for MBR applications and features greater membrane packing density, lower energy costs for aeration and simplified installation while providing even greater compatibility with other commercially available systems. Additional features such as an optimized permeate extraction manifold and air supply lines reduce the number of piping connections during installation.
