Condensate filters

Click here to enlarge image

Disposing of compressed air condensate is a major environmental concern. This oil/water mixture is classified as hazardous waste and cannot be discharged into municipal wastewater systems unless the oil and contaminants are removed. The Kaeser Condensate Filter (KCF) is designed to filter out oil and other contaminants making the water safe for disposal. The key to the KCF function is the three-stage, self-contained plastic filter cartridge, which is convenient for replacement and disposal. The unit requires no electricity and little maintenance. The filter cartridges are designed to handle most compressor lubricants and are available in two sizes. The KCF-20 is designed for flows of approximately 100 cfm, while the KCF-100 will handle flows up to 500 cfm. For larger flows, simply connect multiple KCF units together with an optional Flow Splitter.

E-Cell™ electrodeionization technology from GE Water Technologies is a chemical-free, environmentally-safe, ion-exchange process for producing industrial process water of the highest purity. It removes ions by passing an electrical current through conventional ion-exchange resin, eliminating the use of regeneration chemicals and the generation of a hazardous waste stream. The system's continuous operation and modular stack design offers substantial benefits for water processing applications in a broad range of industries, including power generation, pharmaceutical, semiconductor and biotechnology.

USFilter's Kruger Products Hydrotech Discfilter produces effluent suitable for wastewater reuse applications, especially where space-saving and large filtration capacities are required. The footprint requirement for the filter system is 25 percent of the total installed footprint of many conventional filter technologies, such as sand filters. Also, the systems include modular and changeable filter elements; filter discs can be added or removed to correspond with changes in plant capacity.

Serfilco offers the Excel Filtration System, an automatic backwash filter which uses a floating permanent media and unique "up" flow design to achieve sub-micron particle retention with single pass filtration. The system is specifically designed for final particulate entrapment in critical applications that cannot be met with other filtration methods. Filtration is accomplished by a floating bed of ground polyethylene, creating a dense filter media for retention of submicron particles, assuring a high degree of clarity.

EDR treatment systems

Click here to enlarge image

Ionics provides electrodialysis reversal (EDR) systems for a range of municipal applications. The EDR process uses DC voltage to transfer ionic species from the feed water through ion exchange membranes to a concentrate stream, creating a more dilute stream. The polarity of the DC voltage is reversed several times per hour. The alternating exposure of membrane surfaces to the dilute and concentrate streams provides a self-cleaning capability that enables purification and recovery of up to 94% of the feed water as product.

Ion exchange resins

MIEX® DOC is an ion exchange resin that removes raw water dissolved organic carbon (DOC), a precursor to disinfection by-products (DBPs) from drinking water. The patented high capacity ion exchange resin includes a magnetized component. The combination of this magnetic resin with a unique continuous ion exchange process offers water treatment operators a DOC removal process capable of achieving new standards in water quality. The process is flexible and can adapt to changes in raw water quality to meet more stringent EPA Disinfection By-Product standards.

Arsenic removal systems

Media G2®, from ADI International, is an iron-based adsorption filter media, designed for the removal of arsenic and other metals such as iron, manganese, lead, copper and uranium. It is certified to ANSI/NSF 61 for drinking water applications, and has independent performance certification by EVT Canada. The media removes arsenic from 1200 ppb to less than 2 ppb. The process is completely pressurized (no settling basins, and therefore no re-pumping required). Unlike many other technologies, there is virtually no wastage of water — nearly every drop of water passing through the filter emerges as treated drinkable water.

The Roberts Maximus™ Automatic Backwash Filter System is an alternative for potable and tertiary filtration. The innovative traveling crane system uses a unique backwash hood which mates to square filter cells. The arrangement of the filter cells allows for wide and long filter basins, which are ideal for large plants. Conventional deep filter media beds increase filter bed efficiency and holding capacity compared to shallow bed traveling bridge designs.

F.B. Leopold recently introduced its elimi-NITE™ Denitrification System for removing nitrogen in wastewater effluent. In addition, employing deep bed, mono-media filters, the system can simultaneously remove suspended solids. The gravity, downflow, packed-bed denitrification system is an attached growth, microbiological process which removes nitrate-nitrogen achieving levels below 1 mg/liter. Physically, it is identical to a deep-bed downflow sand filter with Leopold® Type S® Dual Parallel Lateral Underdrain and silica media or a filter bed engineered to specific effluent requirements.

BMF Microscreen Drum Filters, available from Purestream, are designed for the tertiary stage filtration process and especially for the removal of non-soluble particles in sanitary and industrial wastewater treatment plants. The drum filters are designed to be gravity fed, but can receive pumped effluent. They are designed to be installed above grade as a stand alone filter complete with a stainless steel tank or in a concrete channel for in-ground installation. The filter systems are completely automatic which insures simple operation. No part of the filters need lubrication, and maintenance is limited to periodic replacement of the used filter cloth. The life span of the filter cloth is determined by the condition of the water being filtered and the content of the solid materials it contains.

Brackett Green provides fine screening technology with apertures of 6 mm to 0.5 mm for use in screening solids at headworks and membrane applications. The company's Central Flow Band Screens (CF 100™ & CF 200® ) and Single Entry Cup or Double Entry Drum Screens eliminate bypassing and carryover of solids and floating debris. This positive separation of influent from effluent combined with the capture efficiency of the ProPaPanel® essentially eliminates downstream identifiable floatables.

Filtration system

The CTF System from Valve & Filter Corp. is a filtration system for removing particulate from fluid handling systems. It works to remove suspended solids down to 15 micron using stainless steel screen media. A controller monitors dirt cake buildup on the screen and at preset intervals or high D.P., conducts a backwash lasting less than 30 seconds without interrupting filtration and flow. The system can be used to keep cooling towers clean for improved efficiency. It mounts in a "side stream" loop around a cooling tower. The skid-mounted system comes with its own filter, pump, valves, controller, and pump starter.
