Koch launches high-solids ultrafiltration cartridge

Membrane maker, Koch membrane systems, has launched a hollow-fibre ultrafiltration cartridge designed for high-solids water and wastewater applications, including the treatment of surface water, tertiary wastewater and reverse osmosis pretreatment.

Koch says its PURON MP hollow-fibre cartridge has a continuous solids tolerance of up to 250 mg/l. It has a "unique" single-potting cartridge design that enables air scouring to penetrate the fibre bundle to release accumulated solids to the bottom of the cartridge where they are easily drained away.

Koch says the cartridge uses the same "virtually unbreakable" reinforced fibre as others in the Puron product line. It claims the new line simplifies operation, eliminates clarifier pretreatment in many applications, minimizes downtime and reduces chemical usage, to reduce costs.
