Amiad filters to treat wastewater in Brazil

The facility will treat secondary effluent from a local sewage plant to supply water for industrial use at the Capuave Petrochemical Complex.

The Amiad SpinKlin Disc Filters, part of the Arkal family of products which Amiad acquired last year, will form a key component in the pre-treatment filtration process and will be used to protect the plant’s ultrafiltration membranes: the water will first be filtered by the SpinKlin Discs, which are designed to retain solids with a diameter larger than 400 microns, before being biologically treated and passing through the ultrafiltration membrane modules.
