Koch MegaPure simplifies operation.

The product line is designed for high-solids water and wastewater applications, including surface water treatment, high total organic carbon (TOC) water treatment, reverse osmosis (RO) pretreatment, and tertiary wastewater treatment.

Koch claims that: MegaPure simplifies operation, eliminates clarifier pretreatment in many applications, minimizes downtime, and reduces chemical usage and these benefits add up to a lower total cost of ownership.

The MegaPure product line fills a niche within the KMS family of ultrafiltration membranes with an average continuous solids tolerance of up to 250 mg/L. It features an advanced cartridge design for better solids management and a reinforced hollow fiber. The addition of the MegaPure line allows KMS to offer a more complete range of ultrafiltration products.

The MegaPure ultrafiltration system features a single-potting cartridge design that allows air scouring to penetrate the fiber bundle more completely and release accumulated solids to the bottom where they are easily drained away. The cartridge uses the same fiber by the company’s PURON submerged hollow fiber products.
