A selection of the most important projects of Hidro-Water’s engineering department in the area of MBR equipment.

Activated sludge membrane process:

MBR membrane bioreactors are advanced wastewater treatment systems. It is the key technology for the recycling and reuse of wastewater for industrial and domestic use.
The effluent is characterised by a low level of suspended solids, bacteria, viruses as well as the retention of micropollutants, making it an ideal system for direct discharge into environmentally sensitive areas.

Our experience:

The new generation of more productive and less expensive MEMPURE membranes together with the latest advances in membrane bioreactors developed by Hidro-Water allow the system to be applied for a wide range of solutions.
Our valuable experience gained in recent years is an added value: together with our customers, we design new plants and modify existing plants to increase their performance.

Our base:

  • Supply of membranes and membrane cassettes for a wide range of cases.
  • Design and supply of membrane reactors including all equipment necessary for operation.
  • Standard designs and special models on request.
  • Containerised pilot plant designs for study in industrial waters.
  • Improvement of the MBR system by our R+D+I department.

Advantages of MBR over conventional activated sludge systems

  • MBR technology improves the efficiency of wastewater treatment.
  • By separating the activated sludge with membranes, a higher quality of treated water free of suspended solids is ensured.
  • Thanks to the retention of the membranes, it works with high sludge concentrations, thus obtaining higher performance.
  • Due to the uniform distribution of pores in the membrane, the permeability is better and the membrane is more stable against discharges with a high pollution load.

Reduction of the required surface area:

  • The high purification efficiency reduces the volume of the biological reactors.
  • Elimination of the secondary settling tank.
