The MBR process can be customized in various configurations depending on specific nutrient removal objectives for a project. Denitrification can be achieved by using anoxic zones before or after the aerobic treatment, depending on the effluent nitrate and total nitrogen requirements. PMC Engineering prefers a submerged configuration due to its low energy requirements and reduced fouling potential. This configuration uses a suction force to pull water through the membrane, while retaining sludge on the membrane surface.
Membrane modules used in this process are composed of hollow fiber bundles made of Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF). Aeration nozzles located in the center of the fiber bundle ensure that the entire fiber length is scoured, minimizing power consumption. The use of a single header design reduces energy consumption, minimizes downtime, and increases flux, all while taking up minimal space. MBR treatment plants are scalable and can be used for a wide range of capacities. PMC offers pre-engineered systems that can process up to 1000 m3/day.
