The primary features of Sumitomo Electric's POREFLON Membrane Module are its exceptionally reliable quality and high processing capacity.
In 2009, the Sinpyeong Sewage Treatment Plant in Korea adopted the POREFLON Membrane Module for the plant's wastewater treatment system incorporating membrane filtration, and the exceptionally reliable product quality was the deciding factor. The excellent design of the POREFLON Membrane Module, shown below, was proven by the long-term evaluation over several years before adoption and by the Title 22 approval test in the United States.
(1) Excellent water permeability achieved by high porosity
(2) Energy-saving performance due to high air scouring efficiency of Sumitomo Electric's original U-shaped end structure
(3) High fouling resistance and handleability provided by semi-permanently stable hydrophilic treatment
Commending these features, many customers have adopted the POREFLON Membrane Module for their municipal sewage and industrial wastewater treatment applications.
Various membrane products are manufactured throughout the world. Among them, the POREFLON Membrane Module is rated Rank A, as shown in the Illustration of POREFLON Membrane Module Performance. The membrane module has an excellent performance due to its high water permeability resulting from its high porosity and is used in general sewage and industrial wastewater treatment applications.
