Koch Membrane Systems to Showcase Products at IWA World Water Congress and Exhibition

RO spiral elements, featuring MegaMagnum, to be highlighted, along with new PURON PLUS packaged MBR plants

Koch Membrane Systems Inc. will showcase its portfolio of products at IWA World Water Congress and Exhibition Sept. 19 to 24, 2010. The expo will be held at Palais de congrès de Montréal in Montreal, Canada, in stand 224.

KMS’ RO spiral elements, featuring its large-diameter MegaMagnum RO element for use in municipal water and industrial applications, will be highlighted. In addition, KMS will feature its new PURON PLUS packaged MBR plants for large-scale membrane bioreactor applications.

The MegaMagnum RO 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. MegaMagnum systems aim to offer an ideal solution for a variety of large-scale industrial and municipal RO and NF applications, such as brackish water desalination, removal of inorganic contaminates (such as nitrates, arsenic and radium), softening, organic removal, water reuse, high-quality process water production and wastewater recycling.

The PURON PLUS MBR packaged system, a skid-mounted packaged plant, provides customers with a full scope of supply from prescreening and biological treatment through to the final membrane clarification step. The pre-engineered membrane bioreactor plants are available with capacities ranging from 5,000 to 100,000 gal per day and feature PURON MBR membrane modules. The PURON MBR modules feature improved membrane density, reduced air scour requirements and simplified installation compared to first-generation MBR membrane module designs, according to the company.
