Pressurized Membrane System Meets Global Water Challenges
GE Water, a business unit of GE Energy, is expanding its family of ZeeWeed ultrafiltration (UF) products with the introduction of the ZeeWeed 1500. ZeeWeed is an ultrafiltration technology that uses hollow-fiber membranes to separate particles from water. The pressurized ZeeWeed 1500 module offers cost-effective, skid-mounted solutions that can be installed for water treatment, tertiary filtration and pretreatment for brackish and seawater desalination. It is available for small- and medium-sized packaged and custom designs for municipal and industrial plants.
Key features of the ZeeWeed 1500 include:
- Low-fouling PVDF membrane chemistry offering lower frequency and less aggressive cleaning
- Outside-in filtration process providing uniform flow distribution and solids loading with no blocked fibers
- Ultrafiltration barrier to produce high quality effluent that meets the toughest treatment requirements
- High solids tolerance, with the ability to handle high turbidity spikes and coagulant doses
- Lower chemical usage over comparable systems
- Compact module and simple rack design, with on-rack inspection capability
- Ability to retrofit other outside-in UF and MF systems
The ZeeWeed 1500 leverages GE’s ecomagination-certified ZeeWeed technology and offers similar environmental benefits such as high water recovery and reduced plant footprint. Ecomagination is GE’s corporate-wide initiative to help customers address today’s environmental challenges, such as the need for cleaner, more efficient sources of energy, reduced emissions and abundant sources of clean water.
Available in standard and custom designs for small- and medium-sized plants, the ZeeWeed 1500 provides a cost-effective solution that can be rapidly delivered and installed.
