When facing source water problems, downtime from equipment malfunctions or emergencies, seasonal surges in consumption, or increased demand that exceeds system capacity, municipal water providers need a solution to rapidly increase production. If they’re in the process of building a new facility, they might need a water treatment system to ensure a smooth transition while the old plant is being decommissioned.

Pall Corporation offers a possible solution - a mobile water treatment system that can supplement or replace a system on a permanent or temporary basis. The system features a complete, automated, packaged Aria™ microfiltration membrane system mounted in a 48' or 53' box trailer.

With appropriate site preparation and minimal labor, the system can be operational within hours. All that is required is to supply the source water, connect the effluent pipe, and add 460 vAC 3-phase power.

Using the same hollow fiber membranes as hundreds of installed Pall Aria systems worldwide, the mobile system transforms ground water, surface water, or secondary effluent into water that is free from harmful bacteria, cysts, and particles. More than a million gallons of water a day can be filtered to 0.1mm at 90-97% efficiency for drinking or industrial use.

The system’s redundant racks are mounted on skids inside the trailer. Up to 40 microfiltration membrane modules are contained in each rack. The system has a flexible configuration and can be engineered to operate in tandem with other water treatment technologies, such as RO.

In addition to housing the system components, the trailer holds equipment to monitor system operation and ensure that the water meets the required quality specifications. Safety features include two exits with platforms and stairs, an eyewash station, interior and emergency lighting, and a glow-in-the-dark walkway.

Pall will be exhibiting a full-sized mobile water treatment system at ACE ’06. Information about Pall’s “water filtration on wheels” can be obtained at the show or by visiting the company’s website at www.pall.com/water.
