About MEMCON (Pty) Ltd

MEMCON (Pty) Ltd. specializes in all liquidliquid, liquidsolid membrane separation technologies with key focus on waste and process water treatment. Technologies offered include: microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, reverse osmosis, MBR, anaerobic reactors. We supply local and international markets.

MEMCON was founded as an engineering company with the strong focus on design, build and supply customized membrane process plants for liquidsolid and liquidliquid separation. This either can be the complete functional membrane plant or only components thereof. The aim is to keep and grow in-house know-how and expertise in order to satisfy the clients’ needs in Southern Africa regarding R&D, consultation, process design, project management and after sales service.

MEMCON currently is the sole and official representative of the following membrane manufacturers in Southern Africa:

  • MICRODYN-NADIR (spiral, tubular / hollow fiber / capillary membrane modules, flat sheet MBR modules)
  • Atech Innovations (ceramic membrane elements)
  • Membrana Liqui-Cel (gas-transfer membrane for aeration / de-aeration of liquids)
  • Stulz H+E Group (complete municipal / industrial waste water treatment, anaerobic technologies).

Our longstanding relationship with these key suppliers positions MEMCON with access to the latest global research and innovations being made in the field of membrane technology and applications. Coupled with membrane technology, anaerobic technologies afford our clients the potential for onsite energy generation (bio-gas) for the purpose of supplementing energy requirements sourced from the local grid.

MBR technology & applications

Proprietary MBR products and systems:

  • Bio-Cel® Flat Sheet Membrane

Market applications:

  • Industrial small-scale, Industrial large-scale, Municipal small-scale, Municipal large-scale
  • Bespoke solutions, Packaged (Off-the-shelf) systems, Food, beverage and dairy
  • Heavy industry (oil&gas, automotive), Landfill leachate, Fine chemical and pharmaceutical

BIO-CEL® configuration is flat sheet technology, with directional flow eliminating clogging and reducing downtime. The membrane is laminated from two sides onto special spacer material. These laminate pockets are later heat-sealed on their frames.

The suction of the clear filtrate occurs through a permeate hole in the center of the sheet. The flat sheets are open and flexible to the top and bottom channels which prevents the deposition of sludge and fiber accumulation during the continuous crossflow process.

The self-supporting structure of the membrane module enables frame-free installation, thus eliminating blockages around the external boundaries of each component. The membrane module is configured for consistent permeate flow and highly effective back flush over the entire membrane.

Technology special features:

  • CEB Chemically Enhanced Backwash
  • MCP Mechanical Cleaning Process.

Dairy applications: MBR wastewater treatment, cheese whey concentration, milk protein standardisation, lactose concentration, CIP caustic recovery,

Pesticides and insecticides: MBR wastewater treatment

Food & Beverage: High COD / BOD wastewater
