Koch Membrane Systems (KMS) has announced the commissioning of a PURON® PLUS packaged MBR system in Saskatoon, Canada.

The PURON PLUS system provides a compact and turnkey wastewater treatment solution that is fully automated.

KMS partnered on the project with Proteus Water Inc, a Canadian company focused on providing integrated wastewater treatment solutions for small communities.

“Compact MBR systems are the only answer for the small municipalities in Canada, meeting the financial expectations as well as the technical challenges,” said Jason Tratch, president and CEO of Proteus Water. “The PURON PLUS system featuring PULSION MBR membranes is herewith a very promising solution due to its increased efficiency and its decreased footprint.”

Capable of treating an average design flow of approximately 100 000 gpd (375 m3/d) of municipal wastewater, the PURON PLUS P-100 system selected for this project features KMS’s latest patented PULSION MBR technology.
