Poreflon™

Water Treatment Filter

Whether it’s wastewater treatment that combines biological treatment with membrane filtering (MBR), or pure water treatment for drinking water, Sumitomo’s membrane treatment experts can propose high-performance systems that maximise the functions of the Poreflon™ membrane for water and wastewater treatment.

This system can be connected to an existing water treatment facility to provide new and additional capacity, on short-time frames and at low cost without large-scale expansion.

Features and Benefits

Specifications

Submerged Type

  • Stable flux

The PTFE membrane combines highly durable hydrophilicity with asymmetric structure (double structure) to achieve excellent fouling resistance.

  • Compatible with a wide range of wastewater

Stable treatment can be achieved even for wastewater that contains oil and refractory organic matters. The PTFE membrane allows cleaning with strong alkali cleaning agents.

  • Low operating costs and space saving

The proprietary aeration system offers efficient air scouring for membranes with less aeration energy. In addition, the large membrane surface area per projection area greatly reduces the installation space.

Pressurised Type

  • Large volume water treatment*

The PTFE membrane combines highly durable hydrophilicity with asymmetric structure (double structure) to achieve excellent fouling resistance.

(*) General industrial wastewater treatment, oil-contaminated wastewater, water purification (ground water, surface water, etc.)

Use of Poreflon™ in an MBR

Membrane Bioreactor (MBR)
This wastewater treatment method combines a biological treatment process using activated sludge and a physical treatment process using membrane filtration. Organic matters in the raw water are decomposed by microorganisms in the activated sludge, and then the activated sludge is separated into waste and permeate using a membrane.
