Pentair delivers the new Helix flux enhancement technology for both the 8 mm and 5.2 mm internal diameter tubular membranes. The right choice depends on your filtration process characteristics. In order to enhance your performance, installations currently operating with X-Flow tubular membranes can be retrofitted with X-Flow Helix tubular membranes of the respective internal diameter.
Reading about high-tech innovations such as the flux enhancement Helix technology can make things look more complicated than they really are. To serve our many customers around the world who could greatly benefit from this new technology, Pentair is offering a webinar explaining all the ins and outs in a simple fashion, including a demonstration of the new flux enhancement Helix technology; dramatically improving the productivity and efficiency of you wastewater treatment system has never been easier.
“It is well-known that membranes are susceptible to quick caking. The dirt typically sticks to the membrane wall, resulting in a rapid productivity drop. Until now, this problem was usually solved by increasing the crossflow velocity. Put simply, the pressure is increased. However, this requires a lot of energy. The Helix technology addresses this issue by creating an eddy current inside the membrane, thereby causing the particles to not stick at all.”
