Reverse Osmosis System Reduces Complexity, Footprint, and Installation Time

Koch Membrane Systems, Inc. (KMS) will showcase its MegaMagnum reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration (NF) systems for industrial and municipal applications, and its PURON submerged membrane modules for large-scale membrane bioreactor (MBR) applications at the WEFTEC, the Water Environment Federation’s annual Technical Exhibition and Conference, October 10-14, 2009. The expo will be held at the OrangeCountyConvention Center in Orlando, Florida, and KMS will display its products at booth 4955.

The MegaMagnum RO and NF systems utilize the world’s highest area spiral-wound membrane elements to significantly reduce the complexity, footprint, and installation time of municipal and industrial water treatment systems.  Plants designed around a MegaMagnum solution require only half the area of floor space compared to a conventional 8-inch rack and use only one-seventh the amount of elements to produce the same volume and quality of water as conventional RO system operating at similar fluxes and pressures. Each MegaMagnum element contains the equivalent membrane area as over 7 standard 8-inch elements allowing for an 80 percent reduction in the required number of interconnectors and O-rings, resulting in increased operational reliability and further reducing maintenance costs.

The pre-engineered packaged skids are designed to facilitate installation and start-up when schedules are tight. KMS makes them available in four configurations with nominal flow capacities ranging from 0.5 to 2.0 million gallons per day.  To accommodate shipment and installation restrictions, the systems are mounted on one or two skids, depending on the capacity.  Each plant is supplied with a device developed by KMS for easy loading and unloading of the large elements.

MegaMagnum systems offer an ideal solution for a variety of large-scale industrial and municipal RO and NF applications, such as brackish water desalination, removal of inorganic  contaminates (such as nitrates, arsenic and radium), softening, organic removal, water reuse, high-quality process water production and wastewater recycling.
