TITAN MBR Flat-Plate Membranes (MF) maintain high permeability and flux rates even at peak-day rates. They stack within a fully submerged module inside the aeration zone. Trans-membrane pressure created by gravity drives the flow through the membranes.
Advantages of these wastewater treatment Flat-Plate Membranes:
- They are durable. Composed of PVDF [polyvinylidene fluoride] and a non-woven polyester, the membrane sheets never collide during operation. A robust design prevents breakage experienced in other designs and produces higher flux rates over the life of the membrane.
- TITAN MBR wastewater treatment membranes eliminate clogging problems experienced in hollow fiber membranes. The Flat-Plate design with its smooth, continuous surface negates bundling by stringy solids—like hair—and clogging of the membrane that often occurs hollow fiber membranes become bundled.
- TITAN MBR wastewater treatment membranes require less chemicals, operator time and equipment. They are cleaned in place. No backpulsing is required, which eliminates associated pumping equipment. TITAN MBR wastewater treatment membranes facilitate air scouring much more effectively than hollow fiber designs by the simple fact of the flat surfaces.
