Memtek microfiltration systems incorporate proprietary crossflow tubular membranes to remove precipitated contaminants and produce a high-quality filtrate suitable for discharge or further treatment. Systems are skid-mounted and factory assembled, including wiring and testing, to facilitate reassembly and installation. Kynar membranes are designed for very high (2-5 wt%) solids loadings, and can withstand a full range of solution pH. Membranes provide an absolute barrier to the passage of solids and therefore are capable of removing metals (and other contaminants) to their solubility limits. A fully automatic backpulse mechanism is included to periodically cause a reverse flow of filtrate across the membrane, dislodging contaminants to prolong duty cycles and reduce cleaning requirements. Units are designed for automatic operation and can be supplied with a fully automated cleaning cycle if required.
