Spectrum Series Universal Ultrafiltration Rack Manufactured by Wigen Water Technologies

SANTA BARBARA, CA, Sept. 4, 2014 -- The El Estero Wastewater Treatment Plant in the city of Santa Barbara, Calif., is set to install a universal ultrafiltration (UF) skid system -- the first of its kind in North America -- to help reduce demand on the city's drinking water supplies.

Provided by Wigen Water Technologies, a manufacturer of membrane filtration systems, the 3-million-gallons-per-day (MGD) Spectrum Series™ Universal Ultrafiltration Rack system will produce high-quality recycled water for non-potable applications.

Design engineer CDM Smith specified the universal rack system to be able to use three different microfiltration (MF) or UF modules that will allow the city to competitively bid replacement modules in the future rather than be locked into one supplier for the life of the treatment plant.

The racks will be supplied with Dow IntegraFlo UF modules but are also designed to accommodate Toray and Hydranautics modules. The general contractor for the project is Schock Contracting Corporation, and the plant is scheduled to start up in the summer of 2015.
