Wilmington, Massachusetts – September 22nd, 2015 – Koch Membrane Systems (KMS) a global leader in the development and manufacture of innovative filtration membranes and systems, today announced that it will launch PULSION MBR at WEFTEC on September 28th, 2015 in Chicago, IL.
PULSION MBR is energy efficient, requires a smaller system footprint, and reduces long-term operational costs. It pulses a large bubble through a chambered fiber bundle creating a highly efficient pumping action resulting in lower air and aeration energy requirements than traditional air scour methods. Improved recirculation of mixed liquor within the membrane module, not only results in lowered air requirements, but also boosts achievable fluxes. Coupling greater productivity with an increase in packing density allows the overall system footprint to be significantly reduced. Operating with a continuous supply of air eliminates the need for air cycle valves. A reduced air flow rate applied to the membranes on a continuous basis instead of high air flows applied cyclically reduces the size of the air delivery equipment by 50 percent.
“PULSION MBR represents the next generation of MBR technology built on the same robust membrane utilized in PURON® MBR systems all over the world. The energy efficiency and reduced footprint of our PULSION MBR gives us the opportunity to offer the proven performance of the PURON® single header design, reinforced PVDF membrane, and central aeration to new and existing applications for a comparable cost of ownership to conventional wastewater plants,” said Manny Singh, Senior Vice President of Technology for KMS.
KMS will have a functioning PULSION MBR product display in their booth, #4008, at WEFTEC 2015 in Chicago. Stop by and learn more about the advantages of the PULSION MBR. Contact Anthony Lauletta to make an appointment to speak with one of our technical experts
