Ultrafiltration (UF) is a key process step in many wastewater reuse schemes – including Reverse Osmosis (RO) pre-treatment. The job of a UF system is essentially the complete removal of solids, producing permeate with a low Silt Density Index (SDI) and high Log Removal Values (LRV) of pathogens. Pressurised In-to-Out UF hollow fibre cartridges are widely used for this type of application.
For high solids applications, however, submerged hollow fibre modules offer a much better solids tolerance and thus improved treatment capabilities. Submerged modules have been a proven technology in membrane bioreactor (MBR) applications. The new PURON® HF (High Flow) builds on the design of PURON MBR module but with a much higher membrane packing density. It offers 44% more membrane area than the current MBR module – within the same product dimension. The result is a high throughput, compact wastewater solution that can be implemented for a low life-cycle cost. With its reinforced hollow fibre and proven single-header, central aeration design the PURON HF is ideal for tertiary applications including RO pre-treatment and surface water treatment.
