  • Dirty Process Water Can Lead To Increased Total Operating Costs
    Dirty Process Water Can Lead To Increased Total Operating Costs

    Water from cooling towers attracts and absorbs airborne contaminants on a continuous basis. Typically, 85% of suspended solids in cooling water and hot water loops are smaller than 5 microns. Scientific studies have shown that these small particles (5 microns and less) are the adherent contaminants fouling the water loop and process cooling system.

  • Ecomuseum Zoo: High Efficiency Filtration Reduces Turbidity & Maintenance Costs
    Ecomuseum Zoo: High Efficiency Filtration Reduces Turbidity & Maintenance Costs

    ​The Ecomuseum Zoo is home to the most impressive ambassadors of Quebec’s wildlife. All residents of the Ecomuseum Zoo are there for a special reason: orphaned, injured or born under professional human care, each of them could not return to the wild.

New High Performance (NHP) Series Membrane Bioreactor New High Performance (NHP) Series Membrane Bioreactor

As part of Toray’s MEMBRAY MBR series, the NHP (New High Performance) module features thin membrane flat sheets that are densely packed into easily interchangeable cassettes. These cassettes allow for a higher packing density than what was originally thought possible with flat plate designs. The thin membranes are also highly flexible and allow for more movement, resulting in increased vibrations during aeration. This helps dislodge sludge and improve cleaning efficiency, all with less energy use.
