MBRs are a fantastic technology that we need – it provides a level of wastewater treatment that no other technology can but they sometimes face operational challenges or difficulties. Let’s remember that membranes in an MBR are in a turbulent, high mixed liquor, high fouling environment which can place tremendous stress on any membrane. .ecoBLOX systems are able to endure and withstand the stresses of an MBR environment by utilizing membranes that are a rock!
ecoBLOX systems are truly resilient. ecoBLOX systems have the widest operational window meaning they can adapt, without failure, to changes in process conditions. This ability to adapt ensures smooth operation, long membrane life, and low life cycles costs. ecoBLOX plants are also a great fit for installations with seasonal flow, like ski resorts, where temporarily shutting down the system for an extended period of time makes sense.
ecoBLOX IS USED IN THE FOLLOWING MARKETS:
- Retrofit/upgrade of existing MBR plants
- Retrofit of CAS plants
- Greenfield plants
- Packaged plants
BENEFITS OF ECOBLOX
- Increase capacity of existing MBR plants
- 100% recoverability
- Widest operating window
- Membrane life is decoupled from chemical cleaning
- Easy to operate and maintain
- They can be easily placed offline with no special preservation
DID YOU KNOW?
Less than half of the polymeric MBRs installed by Ovivo reached 10-year membrane life.
