Tighter discharge regulations, increased capacity with a smaller footprint and higher effluent quality have made membrane biological reactors (MBR) the leading innovation in wastewater treatment compared to conventional activated sludge processes. This article, published in the American Membrane Technology Association (AMTA) Newsletter (Volume 37, Issue #2, 2018), focuses on the many benefits MBR systems offer wastewater treatment plants in the dairy industry.
The article “No Foul Play” published by Water & Wastes Digest discusses a solution for treating challenging wastewaters. The TRISEP® X-20™ low-fouling RO membrane has a unique polyamide-urea barrier layer that exhibits low-fouling properties and differs from most other low-fouling RO membranes on the market today.
In May 2016, Arab Water World (Vol. XXXIX Issue 5) published a press release highlighting our unique line of polyamide-, piperazine-, and cellulose acetate-based nanofiltration (NF) membranes, available in flat sheet and a multitude of spiral-wound element designs.
Nanofiltration (NF) is the newest of the four classes of pressure-driven membranes. Initially utilized in the 1970’s for water softening, it was originally developed to bridge the gap between reverse osmosis (RO) and ultrafiltration (UF). Today, a variety of NF membranes are commercially available, and continue to be developed for a number of unique applications.
This article highlights three of our newest membrane concepts including the TurboClean® sanitary shell, a line of high temperature (80°C) elements for both continuous operation and periodic sanitization as well as our most unique concept: a back-washable, spiral-wound iSep™ UF membrane module.
