This patented module features reinforced PVDF hollow fibers that are fixed only at the bottom, virtually eliminating the clogging buildup of hair, fibrous materials and sludge solids. Solids and particulates, including bacteria, remain on the outside, while permeate is drawn through the membrane to the inside of the fibers. The aeration nozzle is centered in the fiber bundle to scour the entire fiber length, minimizing power consumption.
PULSION MBR modules offer up to 40% aeration energy reduction and 25% footprint reduction. Leveraging the key differentiating features of PURON MBR, this innovation pulses a large bubble through a chambered fiber bundle, creating a piston-like pumping action that results in lower air and aeration energy requirements than traditional scouring methods. Improved recirculation of mixed liquor in the membrane module boosts achievable fluxes and overall performance. Optimized design and layout has reduced tank sizing while eliminating the need for air cycle valves. A minimized continuous air flow applied to the membranes has decreased the size of air delivery equipment by 50% while reducing operation costs.
Our MBR (Membrane Bioreactor) systems are available as pre-engineered package or modular systems, or custom designed to meet project specifications. They are designed to meet any flow requirement and can be used for both municipal and industrial wastewater applications such as food, dairy, beverage, and various industrial waste streams.
These systems offer a complete and cost-effective solution. The virtually unbreakable high-performance PURON membrane provides consistent high-quality effluent. Coupled with a comprehensive biological system, the PURON® and PULSION® MBR filtration systems can reliable provide effluent free of TSS and reduce BOD and nitrogen concentrations down to 5 and 10 mg/L respectively.
