Koch Membrane Systems Announces The Megamagnum Water Treatment System
Unprecedented Capacity within a Compact Package
Wilmington, MA - Koch Membrane Systems, Inc. (KMS), a world-class developer and manufacturer of innovative membranes and membrane filtration systems, announces the MegaMagnum® Water Treatment System. The pre-engineered, packaged system utilizes 18" diameter MegaMagnum membrane elements, the world's largest spiral-wound reverse osmosis elements, to significantly reduce the cost, footprint and installation time of municipal and industrial water treatment systems.
MegaMagnum systems require only half of the floor space compared to a rack with 8" membrane elements. A single 18"x 61" MegaMagnum spiral element contains 2,800 square feet of membrane surface area, compared to 400 square feet in commonly deployed 8"x 40" products. The MegaMagnum system utilizes one-seventh the number of elements to produce the same water quantity and quality at the same fouling rate as standard 8"elements operating at similar fluxes and pressures. This gives an 80 percent reduction in the required number of connections and O-rings, thereby increasing reliability and further reducing costs.
The pre-engineered packaged systems enable fast installation and start-up. These systems are available in four configurations, with nominal flow capacity ranging from 0.5 to 2.0 million gallons per day. To facilitate shipment and installation, the systems are mounted on one or two skids, depending on the system size. KMS has also developed a special system for easy loading and unloading of the large elements.
The standard package includes flowmeters, pressure transmitters, a conductivity meter, a variable frequency drive and a human machine interface with touch screen, data trending and Ethernet access. Optional equipment includes systems for antiscalant dosing, acid dosing, chlorine monitoring and clean-in-place.
MegaMagnum Water Treatment Systems provide an ideal solution for a variety of large-scale industrial and municipal reverse osmosis and nanofiltration applications, such as brackish water desalination, removal of inorganic contaminates (e.g. nitrates, arsenic and radium), softening, organic removal, water reuse, high-quality process water production and wastewater recycling.
