Minnesota Department of Health evaluates UF for SWTR, LT1ESWTR & LT2ESWTR compliance
Membrane filtration systems continue to play an important role in the growing reuse market
With an aging and often overwhelmed water supply infrastructure, evermore stringent government regulations and growing industrial requirements for pure water, municipalities and companies are increasingly turning to ultrafiltration (UF) membrane systems for water and wastewater treatment.
UF systems meet growing demand for pure water at pharmaceutical plant in Puerto Rico
Field applications of homespring ultrafiltration units.
A study published as part of the EPA's Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program verifies the performance of a Fyne Process membrane filtration plant tested on high organic-laden surface water in Barrow, Ark. The plant was able to remove significant levels of organics--precursors to disinfection byproducts such as trihalomethanes (THM) and haloacetic acids (HAA)--producing water that easily met the disinfection byproduct standards set by the EPA's stringent Stage 1 D/DBP Rule.
Membrane technology offers the possibility of managing total water resources. The spiral wound membrane element configuration is the most widely used due to its high packing density and relatively low price. This article will describe some technological advances in the area of innovative new membranes and application concepts for spiral wound membrane elements.
