UF Membranes

Company Reference: 
GE

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. 

Alternative Applications

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.

ENPRESS, LLC

ENPRESS LLC is a leading manufacturer of composite pressure vessels utilized in water treatment. Manufacturers of Vortech and Mid-Vortech distribution technologies create fluidity of the media bed and extend contaminant removal capacity, which means less regenerations and reduction of water use. The backwashable POLY-UF offers 0.02 micron filtration at max service flow rates of 12 gpm treating colloids, bacteria, cysts, viruses, turbidity, tannins and other particles. Cartridge Tank is a direct replacement for inefficient 2.5- or 4.5-in. housings, or stainless steel cartridge housings. Seven filtration series options offer unique filtration capacities and flow rates from residential requirements up to 150 gpm.

  • enpress_filtration vessel cover
    The top dome Umbrella for the Cartridge Tank filtration vessel is a molded plastic cover solution that keeps rain and water off the top cap of this POE filter series. It is ideal for parts of the world that do not have basements, where installations are outside. Held in place by provided Velcro, it is removable for easy access and removal of filtration solutions.

  • The Yellow Series of filtration solutions for the Cartridge Tank filtration vessel is now available. This series consists of combination filters with an outer layer of polypropylene string and a meltblown polypropylene core. All components and materials are FDA approved.
  • The Poly-UF Pilot Stick is a pilot-testing device for use with the Poly-UF ultrafiltration system. It is a miniature version of the Poly-UF POE vessel and has nearly identical filtration and specification capabilities. Use it for applications in which it is uncertain the POE system will remove the targeted filtrate. It offers 0.02-micron filtration at test flow rates up to 0.8 gal per minute.
  • The 14-by-47 DI exchange vessel uses a high-impact and abuse-resistant elastomeric base that offers excellent rolling characteristics, reduced transportation weight compared to traditional rubber bases and design characteristics that will keep the base attached to the vessel. The co-polymer polypropylene liner formulation provides chemical, impact and abuse resistance.
  • These 12-in. DI exchange vessels are NSF approved with a 4.5-in. buttress top opening option or a 4-in. inlet option. The co-polymer polypropylene liner formulation provides superior performance in both hot and cold temperature environments. Its high-impact and abuse-resistant plastic base offers superior rolling characteristics and reduced transportation weight compared to traditional rubber...
  • The Vortech is now available in vessels 7 to 16 in. in diameter. The product design has an integrated fluid director, which gives structural support to the distributor. The vessel features an exclusive internal bottom plate distributor. It reduces the amount of water to drain in backwash while increasing softening and filtration capacity.
  • ENPRESS’s new Ultra Filtration System is a powerful new tool for the treatment of colloids, bacteria, cysts, viruses and tannins that is easy to install and maintain. It features high throughput flow rates with 0.02-micron filtration, low waste discharge and a standard control valve.
  • The Mid-Vortech product line is now available in 13-in.-diameter vessels. The expansion to the larger diameter vessels allows for greater system design, flexibility and increased filtration capacity—up to 4 cu ft of media in a 13-in.-by-65-in. vessel. The design allows for filling and extraction of media in all chambers at the OEM, dealer or homeowner locations.
  • The Mid-Vortech, a mid-distributor, plate-equipped vessel, is currently available in 10-in.-diameter tanks. It features an internal midplate distributor that offers advantages such as: physical separation of multiple media; use in redundant filtration applications; and elimination of a valve and tank in applications that require multiple media tanks.
  • Enpress has expanded its product line and availability of its extended base and dual inlet option vessels into 16-in. diameter vessels, and is now available in all diameter vessels, 7 in. thru 16 in. in diameter. The extended base allows for usage of dual-inlet bottom-opening tanks for system design flexibility for the end-user.
