Disk-filters to protect Ashdod UF membranes

Filtration manufacturer Amiad has signed a contract, valued at US$ 1.67 million, to provide an Arkal Super Galaxy automatic disc filtration system (SpinKlin R) for the protection of ultrafiltration membranes at Israel’s 100 million m³/year Ashdod Desalination Plant.

The contract was awarded by IVM Minrav Sadyt: a consortium including Minrav Holdings Ltd, an Israeli infrastructure company, and SADYT, a Spanish construction business. Mekorot Development Enterprise Ltd, a subsidiary of Mekorot, Israel’s national water company, will plan, build and operate the plant, which is due to commence operation in early 2013.
