New large-scale UF membrane from French developer
French independent membrane manufacturer Polymem, based in Toulouse, has launched what it calls the largest and most compact ultrafiltration (UF) module.
Polymem says that this new design has been adapted for "huge" water treatment plant requirements offering compactness, optimized maintenance and cost-saving.
The UF 240 module is composed of a 610 mm diameter vessel (composite and titanium for seawater or stainless steel for other applications) and 49 membrane bundles. In this pressurized module, working out/in, raw water enters the central distribution tube (upper side) of the UF 240 module and UF water comes from the bundles' superior faces (upper side).
Benefits claimed for the technology include:
