The microfiltration unit is a compact structure consisting of a tubular membrane module, a recirculating pump, stainless steel support, PVC pressure piping and pressure monitoring equipment in the system. Both the membranes and their casing are made of polypropylene, resistant to chemically aggressive media.
In order to carry out the reverse membrane wash cycles, a monoblock system consisting of a pressure pump and an expansion vessel mounted on a stainless steel frame is provided.
The concentrate resulting from the microfiltration process is temporarily stored in containers and is taken over by a company specialized in waste collection. The amount of residue is about 5% -10% of the influent quantity in the plant.
