New hollow fibre ultrafiltration system on show

Koch Membrane Systems is displaying the TARGA II HF system and its other water-treatment solutions at the conference, scheduled for September 25-28 in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

Koch Membrane Systems says that the TARGA II HF system offers a cost-effective, safe, high-quality water solution for a variety of ultrafiltration applications, from drinking water to seawater pre-treatment, industrial water treatment, and tertiary wastewater treatment. The membrane element features a robust PES membrane which, combined with optimised cartridge and rack design, results in one of the smallest footprint products on the market. The fibres are ideally suited to meet drinking water requirements and provide 4-log virus removal.

According to Koch Membrane Systems, the cornerstone of the TARGA HF system is intelligent process controls to handle variations in water quality and flow with minimal operator intervention, reduced chemical use, and less energy.

“In addition to optimised PES based membrane chemistry to reduce membrane fouling and improved module design to improve product robustness, TARGA HF comes with a state-of-the-art intelligent controls system. The intelligent control system was developed after extensive process testing with TARGA HF and allows users to handle variations in feed water quality and flow variations with minimal operator intervention while reducing overall chemical and power consumption,” said Manny Singh, Koch Membrane Systems senior vice-president, Technology.

Koch Membrane Systems will also display its leading MBR solution, the PURON™ submerged membrane module. PURON modules offer significantly lower life-cycle costs due to a single-header design that provides better solids management in the module, braided fibres to reduce the risk of fibre breakage, and highly effective air scouring that virtually eliminates sludging. PURON technology produces high-quality effluent that can meet stringent water reuse and recycling requirements while its compact design significantly reduces the treatment system footprint and installation costs.
