EDS Water Management Membrane filtration station

Membrane filtration is highly topical in modern water treatment. Depending on the pore size, the principle is used in water treatment.

Drinking water and wastewater treatment in the form of microfiltration and ultrafiltration is another area of application. The objective of both methods is retaining pathogenic germs, for example. The differences between the cross-flow and dead-end filtration operating modes are covered.

The membrane filtration station maps both processes. In cross-flow operation, the trans-membrane pressure is set for optimal filter performance. The inflows to and outflows from membrane filters can be measured and thus the performance of the membrane can be determined.

The backwash process takes place automatically if the filter performance is insufficient. Backwashing uses system filtrate created previously. The pressure resistance test checks the functionality of the membrane.

Other typical applications include:

  • Reverse osmosis for seawater desalination
  • Process water treatment in the pharmaceutical industry
  • Steam generation in power stations

The station is fully assembled, wired and tested.

Including control system with FluidLab®-EDS Water Management, EasyPort, connecting cables, accessory set and "Getting Started" technical documentation.
