Products & Services: Filtration
Collection of filtration related products and services.
Membrane filtration technology
Water Planet’s PolyCera® membrane filtration technology is based on advanced polymeric materials. Available as flat sheets or in Water Planet’s proprietary spiral monolith elements, PolyCera membranes extend the range of polymeric membrane filtration to the most challenging applications. Water Planet’s spiral monolith elements leverage PolyCera’s benefits in a ceramic-like, cross-flow, back-washable filtration module. Water Planet’s testing to date shows OpEx savings up to 40% relative to commodity polymer membranes and 80% relative to ceramic membranes. The result is the first commercial membrane product with ceramic-like performance and polymer-like economics.
Fine screening technology
Hydro International’s Hydro MicroScreen™ rotating belt screen offers wastewater treatment plants an advanced and versatile alternative to a primary clarifier at a fraction of the footprint, power use and installation costs. It effectively separates solids from influent wastewater using 10% of the footprint of a conventional primary clarifier and 20% of the power. It also achieves between 50 and 60% total suspended solids (TSS) removal and offers operators the versatility to improve their downstream process efficiency.
Cloth media filter
The AquaPrime cloth media filtration system is an economical and efficient solution for primary wastewater treatment and wet weather applications. It utilizes a disk configuration and exclusive OptiFiber® cloth media to filter screened, degritted, raw municipal sewage. Features allow the system to handle high-solids applications and sustain low effluent TSS, making it ideal for both wet weather treatment and primary treatment in lieu of conventional sedimentation systems. It operates in less than 10% of the footprint of conventional primary settling basins and offers the added advantage of improving gas production in the anaerobic digestion system.
SiC flat-sheet membrane
RODI Systems Corp. is now the exclusive North American distributor for the Cembrane SiC (silicon carbide) ceramic flat sheet membrane. The Cembrane technology provides high flux, low fouling, oil resistance, long life and tolerance to pH and temperature extremes. The Cembrane SiC membrane is chemically inert, oleophobic and has a low pH isoelectric point. These characteristics make it an ideal choice for applications such as high TSS and temperature/pH extremes. With features like outside-in filtration, compact design, high flux rate, and superior fouling resistance, the Cembrane product greatly reduces OPEX and required footprint versus other MF/UF filtration systems.
RODI Systems Corp.
PHOENIX Process Equipment Company specializes in thickening and dewatering technologies including table thickeners, belt filter presses, recessed chamber and membrane filter presses, decanter centrifuges and chemical systems. The PHOENIX/SCI Horizontal Decanter Centrifuge provides a compact and efficient dewatering solution to your sludge processing needs. With over 2,000 centrifuges installed, you can be confident when you specify PHOENIX/SCI Decanter Centrifuges.
GE’s ZeeWeed 700B horizontal-designed, inside-out ultrafiltration (UF) membrane offers seawater pretreatment for injection and solids removal in offshore oil and gas applications. Using SevenBore fiber technology, ZeeWeed 700B are blended polyethersulphone (PES) membranes, which allow the membrane to stay permanently hydrophilic and reduce the fouling tendency. When compared to granular filter media and cartridge filters, the ZeeWeed 700B membrane produces superior water quality and is virtually unaffected by variable raw water quality. It extends the life of a sulfate removal unit by providing an improved pretreatment technology, decreased life cycle costs and reduced weight as well as footprint.
