QUA® develops and manufactures FEDI® Electrodeionization stacks with the patented, dual-voltage fractional electrodeionization process and Q-SEP® Hollow Fiber Ultrafiltration modules that take ultrafiltration to a new level with a patented "Cloud Point Precipitation" process. This innovative process ensures a high pore density along the length of the fiber and uniform pore size distribution in the membrane. Visit QUA’s online storefront to read more about Q-Sep and the variety of FEDI products.

Spotlight On Membranes, RO, And Desalination

Do We Have To Sacrifice Performance To Be Green?
By Karen Lindsey, V.P. Operations, Avista Technologies, Inc.
The global use of membranes is widespread in municipal, industrial, and wastewater applications with reverse osmosis, and has proven to be a highly effective and reliable method of advanced water treatment. Reuse applications have been particularly challenging for water treatment chemical companies as these highly variable feedwaters can contain any imaginable constituent, resulting in a wide array of site-specific foulants.


MBR For Wastewater Reuse: A Safe Bet
By Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc.
A newly constructed gaming facility located on Native American land in Winterhaven, CA, began its wastewater treatment operations in January 2009. Early into the project development, it was decided that the Aqua-Aerobic MBR membrane bioreactor system was the optimum solution due to its small footprint, high-quality effluent, and low-energy consumption.


Statoil Tests Optimize Desalination Plant For Polymer Flooding Project
By Membrana
This technical brief describes a pilot unit designed to evaluate the use of Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors in deoxygenating low salinity water used in polymer flooding to improve offshore oil reservoir recovery rates. The plant featured an ultrafiltration pre-treatment unit followed by nanofiltration and deoxygenation. The test results shown indicate that membrane contactors will not significantly increase complexity in a seawater membrane treatment process.


Ceramic Membranes Offer Filtration Flexibility
CeraQ ceramic membranes from QUA are capable of removing virus, bacteria, colloidal matter, submicron or micron sized suspended particles, oil and organics from a wide range of fluids, including drinking water and industrial wastewater to economically meet variety of treatment objectives or to recycle and reuse wastewater.
