  • Zero Liquid Waste: A Desalination Solution For Chloride, Sulfate Limits
    Zero Liquid Waste: A Desalination Solution For Chloride, Sulfate Limits

    Mining operations and other energy producers face a multitude of clean-water regulations that can seriously impact their businesses. Strict standards governing discharge into waterways can increase costs and inhibit production. Veolia Water Technologies is addressing these issues through advanced treatment processes that allow companies to generate clean water for reuse or environmental discharge with no substantial liquid waste. Called the Zero Liquid Waste (ZLW) approach, the industrial water desalination technology benefits the mining industry, which must contend with stringent new regulatory requirements that limit the discharge of chlorides and sulfates into streams, rivers, lakes and other bodies of water.

  • Protecting Membranes Boosts Benefits

    Membranes are a game-changing technology – they’ve propelled water treatment to unprecedented heights. By Amiad Water Systems

  • Using Pump Variable Speed Drive Solutions In Membrane Filtration

    Variable frequency drives (VFDs) are nothing new to membrane filtration units. The most typical use of an external VFD on pressure pumps for reverse osmosis (RO) or ultra-filtration (UF) systems is to account for variability in flow.

  • Monitoring Membrane Fouling Potential: SDI Vs. Particle Detection

    Membrane fouling can have a significant impact on the performance of reverse osmosis (RO) systems, as well as on the cost of operating the systems (downtime, membrane cleaning, membrane replacement, etc.). The Silt Density Index (SDI) test has become the standard measurement for determining the fouling potential of RO make-up water. However, SDI results only offer “snapshots” of the quality of the makeup water at any given time. To truly understand the water that is being treated, and to optimize the pre-RO filtration system performance, water plant operators should consider utilizing online particle detection analyzers. By John W. Clark, and Joseph R. Zimmerman

An Overview Of Membrane Technology And Theory
Many simple filtration processes use a dead-end technique — the flow of liquid to be filtered is directed perpendicular to the filter surface, This is effective when the concentration of particles to be removed is low or the packing tendency of the filtered material does not produce a large pressure drop across the filter medium.
