MICRODYN-NADIR announces updated BIO-CEL® L-2 MBR module
MICRODYN-NADIR, part of the MANN+HUMMEL Group, is showcasing their newly-improved BIO-CEL® L-2 MBR module at WEFTEC, Chicago, from September 23-25 2019, with recent innovations making it the most advanced BIO-CEL product yet.
The company manufactures membranes for water, wastewater and process applications. The BIO-CEL MBR, manufactured by MICRODYN-NADIR, is a hybrid technology of hollow fiber and flat-plate designs. The company says it is one of the most efficient technologies in the MBR market, the main advantage being a resistance to clogging. Maintenance requirements are 'easier, safer, and more cost effective' compared to plate systems. Factory tests suggest that recent innovations in the L-2 modules are substantially more robust as compared to older designs.
Launched in 2005, there are now over 500 installations of BIO-CEL worldwide, including more than 50 plants in the USA alone. BIO-CEL modules for the U.S. market are made in Wiesbaden, Germany, using membranes made in Goleta, California. Microdyn MBR Systems, LLC is an exclusive partner for MICRODYN-NADIR, serving the U.S. municipal market.
MANN+HUMMEL is taking significant steps to grow its Life Science and Environment division, including investing in a new location in Kunshan, China (near Shanghai) to expand its presence in the Asian market. As MICRODYN-NADIR aims for its growth targets, it is consolidating three of seven membrane manufacturing facilities into this new facility. This move will allow them to provide best-in-class service to the worldwide market.
