The technology was selected based on permeate quality, energy consumption and chemical consumption compared with competitive products
Koch Membrane Systems Inc. (KMS) installed its Puron HF ultrafiltration (UF) modules at a major steel mill in Inner Mongolia, China. The system is the first large application of the product in the metals industry, with a capacity of 57,600 cu meters per day (15.2 million gal per day).
ZeeWeed 1000 and 1500 pressurized and submerged UF membranes are designed for pretreatment of feedwater for seawater RO (SWRO) systems. The immersed design also aligns well with dissolved air flotation technology and directly couples to SWRO. The membranes offer a reduction in operating costs and a reduced footprint while improving performance through energy savings and increased SWRO membrane life.
In my previous article, “Ultrafiltration: A Business Growth Opportunity” (September 2013), I referenced a 2010 BBC research report stating that “the U.S. market for ultrafiltration (UF) technologies was worth $940 million in 2010. It is estimated to be valued at $1.24 billion by 2015.”1 Simply put, the business opportunities for UF are growing rapidly, which could prove extremely profitable for the savvy professional water dealer.
