Multi-barrier treatment

The AquaMB Process® from Aqua-Aerobic is a multiple barrier treatment system that combines activated sludge treatment in combination with cloth media filtration and membrane technology. The system can be used to treat wastewater discharged to impaired waterways or where critical NPDES rules must be met. The system offers simplified access to external membrane modules, a small footprint, automated in-place cleaning of the membranes for minimal operator attention, flexible cycle structures for optimal bio-nutrient removal.

Compressible media filter

The Schreiber Fuzzy Filter® is a high rate, compact, modular filter applicable to a wide variety of water and wastewater applications. The filter uses a nominal 30" deep media bed comprised of individual 1.25" diameter compressible synthetic fiber spheres, and achieves a high rate of solids removal down to 4 microns.

Disc filter

The woven polyester pleated panel design of the Forty-X™ disc filter from Siemens Water Technologies provides increased treatment capacity and an ultimate barrier for suspended solids in tertiary treatment processes. The pleated media design increases the true cloth area available for filtration by 40% over flat panel designs.

Filter vessel

Parker-Hannifin has introduced the new ParMax™ Filter Vessel, a high-flow capacity filtration solution for municipal water systems and other liquid applications. The filter vessel combined with ParMax™ Select filter cartridges can reduce the overall cost of filtration when compared to vessels containing traditional 2.5" diameter filter cartridges by yielding high-flow rates with fewer cartridges in a smaller, lower-cost vessel.

Contaminant removal

Filtronics' Condor low flow solution for the removal of arsenic, phosphate, chromium, selenium, fluoride, antimony, lead, and other metals from drinking water is designed for flows of 5-125 gpm. The two stage filtration system offers redundancy of equipment and flexibility to reduce capacity when needed. Configurations include skid mount or wall mount systems. The system is completely automated, uses substantially less chemicals than are generally required for treatment, and produces no hazardous waste, while still producing potable water most often significantly cleaner and purer than required by EPA regulations.

MBR system

Kruger has developed and patented a footprint reducing MBR design called Slim2Fit. The system allows for the membrane tank footprint to be reduced by up to 40% when compared to traditional membrane tank layouts. Space between adjacent membrane modules/cassettes and the space to the tank walls are both significantly reduced.

Submerged membranes
iSep™ ultrafiltration (UF) membranes from TriSep were designed specifically for some of the most difficult and aggressive wastewater applications. Their key design feature is the integration of the UF membrane and process tank into a single module. The encapsulated membrane design allows for frequent draining, reducing fouling as all solids are easily purged from the system.
