KOCH MEMBRANE SYSTEMS OFFERS MEGAPURE HOLLOW FIBER ULTRAFILTRATION PRODUCT LINEEngineering
High-solids water treatment in an advanced cartridge design
Wilmington, Massachusetts – Koch Membrane Systems, Inc. (KMS), world-class developer and manufacturer of innovative membranes and membrane filtration systems, announces its MegaPure™ hollow fiber product line. The product line is designed for high-solids water and wastewater applications, including surface water treatment, high total organic carbon (TOC) water treatment, reverse osmosis (RO) pretreatment, and tertiary wastewater treatment. MegaPure simplifies operation, eliminates clarifier pretreatment in many applications, minimizes downtime, and reduces chemical usage. These benefits add up to a lower total cost of ownership.
The MegaPure product line fills an important niche within the KMS family of ultrafiltration membranes with an average continuous solids tolerance of up to 250 mg/L. It features an advanced cartridge design for better solids management and a virtually unbreakable reinforced hollow fiber for superior reliability. The addition of the MegaPure line allows KMS to offer a more complete range of ultrafiltration products.
The MegaPure ultrafiltration system features a unique single-potting cartridge design that allows air scouring to penetrate the fiber bundle more completely and release accumulated solids to the bottom where they are easily drained away. The cartridge uses the same virtually unbreakable reinforced fiber made popular by the company’s proven PURON® submerged hollow fiber product line.
The combination of durable reinforced hollow fibers and unique single-potted cartridge configuration makes the MegaPure cartridge an unparalleled solution for high solids water treatment. The MegaPure design finds the perfect balance between reliable, efficient performance and high quality output.
