PORT WASHINGTON, NY, Jan. 25, 2012 -- Pall Corporation (NYSE:PLL) has been selected by contractor SEG (Société d'Entreprise & de Gestion) Qatar to supply a state-of-the-art water treatment solution for Qatar Petroleum's (QP) premier Ras Laffan Emergency and Safety College (RLESC).
The complete Pall Aria™ AP-Series packaged membrane system will filter the facility's treated sewage effluent and remove bacteria, viruses, turbidity and suspended matter.
"Pall was selected for this project because it offers advanced membrane technology in a very small footprint," says Steve Connor, technical project director at SEG. "Equally important was Pall's ability to provide a complete custom water management solution and dedicated engineering support from a local office."
The use of membrane filtration systems for removing contaminants from water sources across the globe continues to gain momentum. An alternative to practices such as coagulation and flocculation and sand filtration, membrane-based systems offer enhanced performance and operational efficiencies. Additionally, membrane systems typically require 50-70 percent less space than conventional technologies.
The fully-automated Pall Aria packaged system for QP features hollow fiber ultrafiltration membranes. It is designed to filter 3,500 m³/day of treated sewage effluent that will be used for make-up water for firefighting training exercises.
"Pall is thrilled to be involved in this high-profile project," said Hussein Barazi, director, Pall Middle East. "Our ability to effectively address the multi-faceted fluid management needs of organizations in the region with advanced solutions is one of the reasons Pall's presence in the Middle East continues to grow."
