Koch Membrane Systems Introduces Inducor(TM) Tubular Modules
Press release date: February 10, 2006
All the Benefits of Tubular Membranes in a Smaller Package with Lower Operating Costs
Wilmington, Mass. - Koch Membrane Systems, Inc. (KMS), a world-class developer of innovative membranes and membrane filtration systems, announces its INDUCOR(TM) and INDUCOR-G tubular modules for ultrafiltration of industrial process streams and wastewater. These modules have higher packing density and require less power than traditional tubular membranes, resulting in systems with a smaller footprint and reduced capital and operating costs.
INDUCOR tubular modules utilize the same proven KMS PVDF ultrafiltration membrane that has been used with the FEG(TM) tubes and ULTRA-COR® modules on thousands of systems for many years. The membrane is compatible with most industrial wastewater streams and is especially well suited for the treatment of oily wastes and metal hydroxide wastes. INDUCOR modules are configured with one-half inch diameter tubules and INDUCOR-G modules have 1-inch diameter tubules. These open channel configurations are tolerant of high solids streams, including food waste and the activated sludge from membrane bioreactors.
A simplified design eases installation and maintenance. The modules utilize industry standard threaded and Victaulic® fittings. Because of their tubular configuration, the membranes handle system upsets well and can be mechanically cleaned using spongeballs. The INDUCOR modules are ideal for new installations and are applicable for systems with flowrates of 100,000 gpd and higher.
