MBR technology & applications

Proprietary MBR products and systems:

  • MFM MBR technology

Market applications:

  • Industrial small-scale, Industrial large-scale, Municipal small-scale, Municipal large-scale
  • Commercial facilities, Residential developments, Shipboard applications, Food, beverage and dairy
  • Heavy industry (oil&gas, automotive), Landfill leachate, Fine chemical and pharmaceutical, Animal waste

The unique design feature of the gravity operated Alfa Laval Membrane Filtration Module is that it operates with an exceptionally low transmembrane pressure (TMP). The low TMP considerably reduces the need for cleaning, thus significantly reducing both capital and operating expenditure.

Technology special features:

  • Fully gravity operated membrane at ultra low TMP, giving ground-breaking simplicity for the total MBR installation.
  • Exceptionally high packing density, resulting in high filtration effect with small required tank footprint.
  • A design that is much less prone to fouling than conventional Hollow Fiber and Flat Sheet membrane filtration configurations.
  • High cleaning efficiency by circulating cleaning liquid through the Membrane Filtration Module – long intervals between cleaning.
