Crossflow MBR is developed to treat (industrial) wastewater streams high in Mixed Liquid Suspended Solids (MLSS: 10-30+g/l) at high fluxes (80-200 l/m²h). It can be operated entirely automated and continuously with a high TMP (1-5 bar). Typical applications can be found in the food & beverage, brewing, and oil & gas industries, as well as in heavy-duty municipal applications such as leachate treatment.
In a Membrane Bioreactor (MBR), the advantages of biological treatment and membrane filtration are combined. Crossflow MBR applies pressurized inside-out UF membranes which are placed outside the bioreactor for a clean process that is easy to operate and maintain.
Crossflow operation prevents membrane fouling, enabling Crossflow MBR to deal with even higher MLSS than our Airlift MBR concept.
Recirculation ensures that the recycling water/sludge helps to keep the membranes clean, while simultaneously separating clean water from the feed.
Based on your specific feedwater characteristics, our specialist can easily determine the optimum solution for your challenge.
This type of MBR is suited for feed capacities <100m3/h.
As part of its separation into a new pure play water company, a new Pentair website has launched. Please visit the new Pentair.com to learn more about our exciting new company and your favorite brands!
