MF Water Treatment Technology for Municipal and Industrial Applications
The core of our filtration solutions are Microfiltration (MF) modules are designed for municipal and industrial applications, including reverse osmosis (RO) pretreatment.
Pal Water's Aria™ water treatment systems incorporate microfiltration modules that can replace conventional upstream operations such as flocculation, settling, and granular media filtration. The microfiltration modules provide consistent, high-quality effluent independent of incoming raw water quality without the use of coagulating chemicals, typically achieving a SDI of < 2 – 3 and a turbidity of < 0.08 NTU.
Our proven Aria™ systems have a comparatively small footprint, are modular in design, and are fully automated.
Features of Microfiltration Membranes
MF membrane features offer a number of water treatment benefits
When used in Pall Water's Aria water treatment systems, our proven microfiltration modules deliver high-quality water for municipal and industrial applications.
- Hollow fiber construction with 0.1 μm rated membrane for removal of particles, bacteria, colloidal silica, and reduced turbidity.
- PVDF membrane resistant to oxidizing agents.
- Filtration from outside fiber to inside of fiber.
- Large surface area per module for excellent throughput, resulting in compact systems, and exceptional tolerance for high contaminant levels.
- Removal of foulants by unique and periodic air-scouring combined with permeate back flushing.
- Minimum prefiltration required (e.g., 400 μm self-cleaning strainers for removal of tramp solids).
- Low operating costs:
- By providing high quality RO prefiltration, the time between RO membrane cleaning is greatly extended. This results in reduced downtime and chemical / disposal costs.
- High water recovery rates (typically up to 95% – 98%) minimize cost per volume of water produced.
Microfiltration membrane modules provide water treatment solutions for a variety of municipal and industrial applications, including:
- Drinking Water
- Desalination Pretreatment
- Water Reuse
- Boiler Feed
- Cooling Tower Make-Up
- Cooling Tower Blowdown
- Discharge Water
