Pentair X-Flow Airlift: Energy-efficient sidestream membrane bioreactor solution
Be assured of effective cleaning of the membranes and easy maintenance with Pentair X-Flow sidestream membrane bioreactor solutions. The X-Flow Airlift Solution requires a small footprint and lowers the total cost of ownership compared to the submerged MBR systems.
With world-class X-Flow Membrane Solutions and Pentair X-Flow Membrane+ Approach, you’ll gain peace of mind. Delivering what you and your customers strive for – treating low and medium strength wastewater and producing high-quality filtrate in bioreactor applications.
The need for reusing wastewater, both industrial and municipal, requires top quality membranes which provide directly reuseable water. The ultrafiltration membranes applied can be compared to those used in drinking water plants. Energy consumption is at the level of submerged membrane systems or lower, due to the efficient use of process conditions for flux enhancement.
Another major advantage of the Airlift technology is that the membrane modules are placed outside the bioreactor in a clean and dry setup. The wastewater itself is inside the membranes rather than outside, thus eliminating the problem of maintaining modules submerged in activated sludge. The membranes are easily accessible and cleaned.
For capacities >7,5 MLD the application of our Airlift Megablock can be of interest.
