Membrana has developed a new 12" ultrafiltration membrane module. The Liqui-Flux® ultrafiltration module incorporates a hydrophilic Polyethersulfone (PES) hollow fiber membrane with an inner diameter of 0.8 mm and a MWCO of 80 kDa. The distinctive three-layer membrane morphology effectively combines the critical tasks of sustained mechanical strength and excellent flux rate with outstanding removal efficiencies. When tested side-by-side with three competitive filtration devices, the modules used less than half of the energy of any of the others to deliver the same performance.

The 1720E Low Range Process Turbidimeter provides the sensitivity, stability and flexibility necessary to continuously track the low levels of turbidity found in high-quality filtered water. The meters are built to measure turbidity from 0.001 to 100 NTU and meet USEPA 180.1 design and performance guidelines. Equipped with the new dual-input digital sc100 controller, the 1720E is easy to calibrate and operate, and requires very little maintenance. With an optional network card it communicates via Lonworks directly with existing 1720D AquaTrend systems.
