Koch's Puron MBR ultrafiltration membrane bioreactor series is designed for industrial and municipal wastewater treatment looking to reduce energy, minimize downtime, and increase flux in a cost efficient manner.

This patented module features reinforced PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) hollow fibers that are fixed only at the bottom, aiming to eliminate the build-up of hair and fibrous materials that typically clog the upper ends of other modules. Solids and particulates, including bacteria, remain on the outside, while permeate is drawn through the membrane to the inside of the fibers.

Low energy demands

According to the manufacturer, Puron MBR systems have one of the lowest energy demands of comparable products on the market, and the braided membrane fibers of the modules lead to minimal downtime and breakage.

As part of the Puron line, Puron MBR modules feature the aeration nozzle in the center of the fiber bundle, scouring the entire length of the fibers and minimizing power consumption.
