KMS Supplies ultrafiltration modules to power plant in Inner Mongolia

July 22, 2014

WILMINGTON, Mass. — Koch Membrane Systems, Inc. (KMS) is a developer and manufacturer of membranes and membrane filtration systems.

WILMINGTON, Mass. — KMS supplied PURON® membrane bioreactor (MBR) ultrafiltration modules to a power plant located in Inner Mongolia, China, becoming the first project in China’s power industry to use PURON® MBR membranes for water reuse, according to a press release.

The plant has a capacity of 4.8 million gallons per day and will treat municipal wastewater in an aerobic MBR using PURON hollow fiber membranes, followed by reverse osmosis (RO), then the treated water will be used as boiler make-up water, stated the release.

Unlike conventional wastewater treatment technology, PURON MBR ultrafiltration modules provide a physical barrier to bacteria, produce high-quality effluent, require a small footprint and eliminate the need for secondary clarification, noted the release.

The PURON modules feature a unique single header design with reinforced braided hollow fibers fixed only at the bottom, which essentially eliminates clogging, continued the release.

“We are extremely pleased that the PURON MBR modules were selected for this major power plant project,” said Pang Ruming, Asia-Pacific Commercial Director of the Water and Wastewater business for KMS. “We are confident that the modules will deliver a robust membrane, low energy consumption and low chemical consumption compared with other membrane alternatives.”
