  • Optimal Ultrafiltration Uses For Beverage And Dairy Companies

    When you’re sipping on a cold soda or snacking on a creamy piece of cheese, you probably don’t really think about what went into making your food or beverage. Aside from the automated production-line machines, one of the most important things that goes into the making of any soda, juice, wheel of cheese, or gallon of milk is water. Producing beverages and dairy products uses substantial amounts of water within production processes.

  • Butler WTP Solves Membrane Integrity Issues And Meets EPA LT2 Rule With Aqua MultiBore® Membranes

    Butler Water Treatment Plant (WTP), located in Missouri, receives its influent from a surface water impoundment fed from Butler Lake, Maris de Cygenes River, and Miami Creek. Following treatment, it provides potable water to over 300 businesses, (4) schools, 4100 residents and (4) other Public Water Supply districts.

  • PVDF Hollow-Fiber Ultrafiltration Membranes Selected For Plant Upgrade

    The City of Delaware, Ohio's Water Treatment Plant (WTP) started operating in 1889. Under the EPA's Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2), the WTP's feed water is classified as Bin 2, which requires a 4-log removal of Cryptosporidium. As a result, the City would convert its 6.0 MGD lime softening plant to a 7.2 MGD membrane treatment facility utilizing a 4.5 MGD ultrafiltration (UF) system to comply. A total of seven proposals were received during the bidding phase of the UF system, which was narrowed down to three based on best projected capital and operating costs and membrane performance. The three selections would be piloted for further evaluation. Read the full case study to learn more.

  • 4 Benefits Of Sodium Zeolite For Drinking Water Treatment

    Use of treatment systems that effectively target and treat toxic and undesirable contaminants is essential to drinking water production. There are typically four stages in a standard drinking water treatment system process, coagulation/flocculation, sedimentation/clarification, filtration, and disinfection. Sodium zeolite is typically utilized in the filtration systems within the filtration stage for optimal treatment performance.

  • When To Replace Your RO Membrane

    On the surface, it might seem that knowing when to replace the membrane elements in a reverse osmosis (RO) system would be simple. In attempting to keep it simple, many companies will use one or more of the following guidelines for replacing their membrane.

  • How Is Zeolite Water Treatment Media Used In Water And Wastewater Treatment?

    Technology is constantly evolving and changing to meet the needs of humanity, and one of those needs is for clean water. The water treatment industry is always researching, testing, and developing new and improved ways in which to treat wastewater and drinking water in ways that are both efficient and environmentally friendly. Zeolite water filtration media is a sustainable, natural treatment solution for drinking water, grey water, and wastewater treatment.

  • High-Flux Membrane Filtration For Oil And Water Separation

    Environmental regulations and water scarcity have created a need for economical water treatments that increase reuse. This paper will review the new PPG membrane that has a unique composite single-layer microstructure that provides high-flux, excellent separation capabilities and exceptional durability to improve the filtration and recovery of industrial wastewater.

  • High-Flux Polymeric Membrane For Industrial Water Separation

    Water is essential to numerous industries such as chemical manufacturing, automotive production, oil and gas refinery and power generation, yet the increasing scarcity of this precious resource makes its recovery from these activities more critical than ever.

  • Pros And Cons Of Different Types Of Ultrafiltration Technology Configurations

    Ultrafiltration systems can be engineered and designed in several possible combinations based on the application and source water quality. There are different membrane materials, membrane shapes, flow types, and configurations.

DRINKING WATER FILTRATION SOLUTIONS

  • Q-SEP® Ultrafiltration (UF) Membranes

    Our NSF certified Q-SEP® Ultrafiltration membranes are manufactured by the patented "cloud point precipitation process" which incorporate high-strength, hollow fibers with uniform pore size distribution and deliver superior performance. The Q-SEP® Ultrafiltration membranes are made from a hydrophilic polyether sulfone (PES) material with excellent low fouling characteristics.

  • Xylem’s Leopold Oxelia™ for Drinking Water Applications

    Biological and chemical contamination in drinking water poses a significant public health risk and plant operators require a treatment system that allows them to produce a safe and reliable supply of clear, good-tasting and biologically-stable finished water with the lowest concentrations of non-desired substances.

  • Iron and Manganese Removal by Filtration Using Electromedia® I A simple, compact iron and manganese filtration system that effectively removes iron and manganese concentrations without the use of greensand or potassium permanganate.
