Crossflow Membrane Technology
Crossflow membrane technology is widely used throughout the process industries to provide a cost-effective solution for reducing wastewater volumes. In many cases, the technology can achieve a reduction in the volume of wastewater by a factor of five to ten times, offering potential savings on effluent charges as well as producing a clean water stream that can often be reused as wash water or cooling water within a facility. In some cases the concentrated wastewater can be reused in the production process giving a true “zero discharge” treatment. Payback on the capital cost of the membrane installation can be less than two years depending upon the application.
Membrane technology is particularly effective as a solution for:
- Biomass separation
- Textile and dye effluent treatment
- Pulp and paper effluent treatment
- Landfill leachate concentration
- Clean-in-place solution recycling
- Pesticide and herbicide removal
- Food industry effluents
- Oily wastewater treatment
Cost-Effective Wastewater Handling
Membrane Specialists can help design a cost-effective solution for wastewater handling. Crossflow membrane technology can reduce wastewater volume and save money on effluent charges and provide a source for wash water or cooling water.
