The Headworks Eliminator™ provides fine screening suitable for use in membrane bioreactor (MBR) systems. The screening system installed upstream of the finer filtration systems and is designed to improve their performance. The stainless elements form a continuous band, which travels parallel within the channel. The water enters through the center of the screen, turns 90 degrees, passes through the stainless steel sieve elements, and exits through the sides of the unit.

Constructed of 316ss, the V-Series Automatic self-cleaning water filters from Valve & Filter feature an energy efficient cleaning mechanism. These filters are suitable for tertiary wastewater disposal for a variety of applications -- service water, polishing, recycling, environmental protection and irrigation systems -- required to use treated effluent. The primary filtering screen uses "Uni-weld, Sintered" technology which maximizes the cleaning efficiency and the effective open area to stop debris and particulates. Screen cleaning is also enhanced due to the energy efficient "Hydro-Drive" rotor which reduces flushing time and thus wastewater during cleaning cycles. Degrees of filtration are available from 1500 micron to 10 micron.

Evolving from the Koch Membrane System 8" ultrafiltration cartridge design, the new PMPW-10™ cartridge from KMS has a 10" diameter. It contains 60% more membrane area and provides 60% more product water. Each cartridge houses thousands of hollow fibers made from polysulfone, a membrane material in use for more than a decade. The new cartridge can reduce system floor space requirements by 50% and lower building costs significantly on a per gallon basis. Because of its smaller system size, fewer valves and pumps are needed, saving on capital equipment costs. The cartridges are available in two sizes: a 48" long model containing 550 square feet of membrane, and a 72" model containing 870 square feet of membrane.

Perchlorate removal

Rohm and Haas has introduced Amberlite® PWA2 ion exchange resin, which is specifically designed for the selective removal of perchlorate from drinking water. According to the EPA, perchlorate has been detected in water supplies across the United States, and can interfere with iodide uptake into the thyroid gland. In many typical municipal well contamination cases, the new resin has been shown to be a cost effective technology solution to manage perchlorate contamination concerns.

MBR systems

Effluent produced by the Ionics Membrane BioReactor (MBR) is ideal for conserving drinking water resources because it meets requirements for irrigation, industrial applications, aquifer injection and other non-potable uses. The systems replace the sedimentation process used in conventional wastewater treatment by removing the suspended materials with a microfiltration (MF) membrane. The membranes are submerged in an aeration tank, with the water being drawn through the membranes under vacuum, leaving the suspended biomass material in the aeration tank.

The Cyclone from CDS Technologies is a self-cleaning CSO screen designed to be virtually maintenance free. The stainless steel screen requires no mechanical cleaning of the screen surface and no external power source, as it operates by using the available energy of the overflow through an internal water wheel. With numerous installations throughout the UK and US, the screen has a track record for reliable combined sewer overflow screening in municipal settings.
