Ultrafiltration Membrane Bioreactor reduces energy usage.

November 26, 2014

Suited for wastewater treatment, PURON® MBR series features braided membrane fibers that minimize downtime/breakage. Module has single-header design, and reinforced PVDF hollow fibers are fixed only at bottom to minimize buildup of hair and fibrous materials. Solids and particulates, including bacteria, remain on outside, while permeate is drawn through membrane to inside of fibers. In center of fiber bundle, aeration nozzle scours entire length of fibers and minimizes power consumption. Read More
