Technology / Seaweed principle
The seaweed principle
If minimal pre-treatment is required, nature provides the best example. Membranes fixed only at their bottom side simply remain efficient much longer than other solutions.
For even the smallest component in membrane modules the process and boundary conditions are important.
The Membion “single-header” design makes the filters resistant to hairs and fibrous compounds in the sludge, thus simplifying the pre-treatment of the wastewater.
Membion – hollow fibre membrane
These membrane tubes are fixed like real seaweed only on their bottom side (single-header design), while they are individually sealed at the top …
Nature as a model
Our hollow fibre membranes are buoyant and float freely at the top like seaweed in the sludge to be filtered
