The retrofit involves installing the company’s TARGA II hollow fibre ultrafiltration (UF) cartridges, replacing a previous brand which was showing signs of wear, requiring frequent fibre repairs.
KMS system designers were able to provide prefabricated rack inserts including manifolds, connectors and membrane cartridges that fit within the existing rack framework and utilized existing system controls. KMS also provided installation and startup assistance.
“We are very happy to have been able to help the City of Del Rio solve their membrane supply problem and offer a domestically manufactured product to replace their existing cartridges,” said Grady Coberly, sales manager in KMS’ water & wastewater business unit. “The TARGA II hollow fibre UF membranes were a perfect fit and provided the city with a robust alternative with minimal breakage, an efficient footprint, and a cost-effective solution.”
