Water Membranes White Papers and Case Studies

  1. IMEC UPW System Utilizes 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors For Oxygen Removal
    5/4/2017

    IMEC (Interuniversity Micro- Electronics Center) in Belgium is Europe's largest independent research center. It focuses on microelectronics, nanotechnology, and enabling design methods and technologies for ICT (Integrated Circuit Technology) systems. IMEC's research runs 3 to 10 years ahead of industrial needs.

  2. City Validates Innovative Reuse Treatment Options Without RO
    3/13/2017

    Hollywood, Florida’s 55.5 MGD Southern Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant (SRWWTP) treats wastewater from Hollywood and six neighboring municipalities in the southern region of Broward County. Florida’s outfall rule requires the city to begin a process to largely eliminate the use of its ocean outfall and implement 20.4 MGD of additional reuse on an annual basis.

  3. Oxygen Removal From Feedwater Of A Central District Heating System Using 3M Liqui-Cel
    2/18/2017

    A Netherlands power station installed 3M Liqui-Cel membrane contractors for O2 removal. This case study explains how the membrane system exceeded expectations, achieving oxygen removal down to 5 ppb.

  4. Dual Membrane Plant System Audit
    2/6/2017

    How do you know if you are in control of microorganisms in your dual membrane plant? See how one water treatment plant performed a system audit using ATP technology to confirm microbiological treatment efficacy through each stage of the process.

  5. Global Pharmaceutical Company EnviQ Membrane Bioreactor (MBR)
    11/4/2016

    The Serum Institute is a global pharmaceutical company that is one of the world’s largest producers of vaccines. The Institute was planning an expansion to their manufacturing plant in Pune, India, that resulted in an additional water requirement for the plant’s needs.

  6. From Raw Lake Water To Excellent Filtrate Quality Suitable For Drinking Water
    7/12/2016

    CH2M contacted Toray Membrane USA with an invitation to pilot our pressurized TIPS hollow fiber UF membrane module for the City of Sherman Texas 10 MGD Expansion Project. This document summarizes the findings of this pilot study program.

  7. Fractional Electrodeionization (FEDI) Technology For RO Permeate Polishing And Demineralization
    5/5/2016

    Sabine Pass, a large LNG refinery in the U.S., required a membrane desalination solution to cater to its extensive process water needs in order to produce a large amount of liquefied natural gas for export.

  8. CeraQ Ceramic Membranes Provide Robust Solution For Automotive Parts Manufacturing
    3/23/2016

    An automotive parts manufacturing plant was using a polymeric membrane to remove oil from water it used to rinse parts. The rinse water contained between 6% and 7% oil and the customer wanted to remove >95% of the oil from the water so the water could be reused in the plant.

  9. Fluence Provides Coca-Cola FEMSA With Wastewater Treatment For Reuse
    1/26/2016

    At the Coca-Cola FEMSA plant in Buenos Aires, Argentina, increases in production required an expansion of their wastewater treatment plant. RWL Water technicians and engineers implemented an airlift ultrafiltration (UF) system operated with a membrane bioreactor (MBR) to provide wastewater treatment for reuse.

  10. Two Innovative Technologies Ensure DBP/TOC Regulatory Compliance
    10/15/2015

    The city of Fort Lupton a growing Front Range community located along the South Platte River in Colorado, began operation of a new 5 MGD (18.93 MLD) membrane filtration system in 1997.
