Hyflux Ltd (Hyflux), a global leader in sustainable solutions for water and energy resources, announced today at WETEX Dubai 2016 that it is expanding the available configurations for its PoroCep® Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) packaged systems. Compact and energy-efficient with superior performance efficiency, the systems help industries and municipalities save energy and reduce costs in its wastewater treatment efforts.
Expanding beyond the current configurations of 100, 200 and 400 cubic meters per day (m3/day) in containerized and non-containerized versions, the four newly launched skidbased models in larger treatment capacities of 600, 1,000, 2,000 and 3,000 m3/day will complete the PoroCep® MBR packaged systems range.
Targeting wastewater treatment and recycling applications, the PoroCep® MBR packaged systems are innovatively designed and built for exceptional reliability as well as to minimise downtime.
In challenging feed water conditions, optional pre- and post-treatment options as well as system optimisation add-ons are available for customisation according to the customers’ requirements. These optional add-ons include the Remote Assistance Monitoring (RAM) and Enhanced Performance Program (EPP), adopting the proprietary SuperBiotiX™, a special blend of microbial formulation proven to effectively reduce effluent BOD, COD, suspended solids and odour. The SuperBiotiX™ is proven to improve the systems’ operational efficiencies, reduce chemical usage and space requirements.
The PoroCep® MBR packaged systems incorporate Hyflux’s patented PoroCep® membranes made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), a non-toxic and non-leaching material with excellent tensile strength, as well as strong pH and oxidation resistance. The PoroCep® skid also has one of the highest membrane packing densities among submerged membranes for MBR systems available in the market. The high filtration capacity and smaller tank footprint will translate into cost savings for users.
“The newly-launched PoroCep® MBR packaged system models represent Hyflux’s continued commitment to increase the accessibility of sustainable solutions. The wider range of models provide end-users with more options of pre-designed and ready-to-install MBR systems to choose from that will fit their needs,” said Mr Nik Chia, Vice President of Channel Sales at Hyflux.
The PoroCep® MBR packaged systems have already been installed at multiple locations in textile, sewage, food & beverage sectors in Asia, Central America, Europe and Middle East regions to treat wastewater and ensure that stipulated discharge standards are met.
