Cross flow membrane systems
The MemTriq® is based on a cross-flow filtration process.
The biomass is filtered in a filter installation next to the bioreactor. The membrane modules are placed in a pressurized circulation loop located outside the bioreactor. Membrane fouling is prevented by the use of the shear forces created by the cross-flow operation of the membranes.
Prerequisites for the application of cross-flow Membrane Bioreactors:
• Concentrated wastewater
• Waste water that is not easily biodegradable
• Small pore sizes
• Lower flows (< 20m3/h)
