Ovivo® Silicon Carbide (SiC) Flat Plate Membranes

KEY ADVANTAGES:

  • Highest Flux
  • Withstands the Harshest Environments
  • Quick & Easy Cleaning for Full Recovery
  • Longest Life of Any Membrane

 

High Flux MBR

  • Allows for operation at high mixed liquor suspended solids (MLSS)
  • Increases capacity of microBLOX® units in the same small footprint

Sludge Thickening

  • Expand the operating window for membrane thickener (MBT)
  • Repels negatively charged particles including fats, oils & grease
  • Easier to recover from dewatering

Wet Weather Systems

  • Ideal solution for Combined Sewage Overflow (CSO), Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO) MBR peak flow, Conventional Activated Sludge (CAS)
  • SiC membranes can be completely dried, and easily endure peak flows needed in intermittent storm use

Tertiary Treatment

  • High flux, low footprint design with lower energy consumption

Semiconductor Wastewater Treatment

  • Lowest foot print for any FSM technology
  • Modules individually replaceable
  • Flexible design for easy add or removal of single module

KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS:

Feature

Benefit

0.1 micron pore size
  • Robust and durable physical barrier to suspended solids and pathogens, providing the highest effluent quality over the life of the membrane.
Completely hydrophilic
  • Highest Membrane Flux
  • Unmatched low footprint
  • High Recovery Rates
  • Low pressure operation at high flow
Chemically inert
  • Can operate in extreme environments
  • Extremely durable & reliable operation
Negatively charged
  • Repels negatively charged foulants, making membrane less prone to fouling and clogging
  • Allows for less maintenance equipment
