The story began 8 years ago. This famous Australian water engineering company is located in west Australia and focuses on black copper oxide. To optimize water management and save more water, at the same time, reduce energy waste, the plant decided to recover the backwash water from the existing UF system.
The recovered backwash water would be re-UF filtered and then turned into RO feed water. The inlet capacity for the system is 8m³/h, and the production water capacity should be reached 4m³/h.
Before we go deep into this project, we need to clearly know what our client wanted and what their goal is. From the survey, we figured out the important requirements in the following.
Our client is professional and specialized in the quality of feed water. They completed an analysis sheet about the data of inlet water quality, which helped us to confirm the materials of UF membranes in a short time.
From the following table, we could know that particle sizes were mostly around 10um with a percentage of 93.19%.
Based on the inlet water quality and outlet water usage, we choose the below UF item.
Membrane material: PVDF enhanced
Membrane area: 34㎡
Operation mode: Outside-to-inside
Dimension: 200 X 1900mm
Connection size: DN50
The key factor that our client was concerned about was the production capacity for the UF membrane. When it comes to production capacity, it is actually difficult to tell an exact number. However, there are many UF suppliers in the market to tell you directly about their production capacity and guarantee a numerical value for production capacity.
We sincerely and warmly persuaded our customers not to believe so easily, and please found out the truth from the real facts.
The data of production capacity can vary from below two factors.
Through comparison between the whole UF package and hard wares which needed to be constructed by customers on site.
After considering local labor costs, and other relative costs for the project, their center engineer director chose the complete UF system.
Let’s start the work from design(normally, design will be working out within 5 working days against project confirmation). The UF system consists of 5 main parts in below:
From the above drawing, we can summarize three key points from our design.

The ocean occupies most of our planet, and desalination has been used more and more widely over the past 20 years. By using reverse osmosis systems, we help desalination plants to do their job and further help more plants to solve the problem of water shortage.
Every chemical plant is inseparable from industrial water filtration systems. Whether it is the purification and filtration of raw materials and final products or the treatment of industrial wastewater and unwanted chemicals generated during the production process, industrial filtration is a top priority.
Most petrochemical industry products are stored in large containers, such as diesel, gasoline, and fuel oil. This type of storage is highly likely to lead to impurities in the products and affect the product quality. Our mission is to offer efficient and reliable filtration systems for the petrochemical industry so that purification is not a big challenge.
The extremely rapid growth of the pharmaceutical industry has created a greater demand for industrial filtration. Whether it’s upstream cell fermentation, purification, or filtration, we can provide the solution. In addition, We are committed to filtration and separation, protecting the reliability and safety of production equipment.
The food and beverage industry is closely related to the daily life and health of each of us. Therefore, we must meet higher standards to filter these products. As your experts, we help you improve product quality, reduce production costs, and safeguard everyone’s health.
Nature itself has the ability to treat wastewater. But with the huge increase in human production and living activities, it can no longer handle such large amounts of wastewater. We, as industrial treatment producers, help nature to share the burden of wastewater treatment.
Industrial wastewater from mining activities contains high volumes of heavy metals, particulates, and residual chemicals. Wastewater must be purified and filtered in order not to pollute our water resources. We help your plant meet wastewater discharge standards.
In order to extract oil more efficiently and conveniently, large amounts of water must be injected underground to ensure water pressure. And since precious water resources are limited, our technology allows wastewater to be purified so that it can be reused.
When it comes to marine filtration, the first scene that appears in people’s is usually the sea or seawater. But marine filtration is more than seawater. A crucial resource on this planet is seawater. Large amounts of seawater are needed to generate fresh water for drinking and irrigation in locations with a lack of fresh water, just as ships sailing on the ocean need a lot of it for ballast water to keep the ship balanced. Marine filtration is not only about the seawater, but also the transported seawater. The ballast water is a kind of transportation of water. The cargo ships load the seawater from one place and discharge it at another port. The seawater traveled with the cargo ship in ballast tanks. This is the point many people will be indifferent about, the filtration before the discharge of the ballast water. People are familiar that we can not drink seawater directly, because it contains large quantities of salt and contaminants. But why do we need filtration for ballast water? it is just the seawater discharge into seawater. With the development of the environmental protection concept and the perfection of the law, we are constrained to filter the ballast…
The science and practice of extracting metals or metal compounds from minerals and transforming them into metallic materials with specific qualities using a variety of processing techniques is known as metallurgy. With the development of technology and the metallurgy industry, the filtration market in this area grows quickly annually. The need for filtration is increasing and the filter equipment is also developing. In the metallurgy industry, the rolling mill coolant and lubricate system need a filtration system. Equipment coolant and lubricating oil need to be filtered to remove contaminants and accomplish recycling in the metallurgical process in order to save input costs. Filtration can help to extend equipment service life and help equipment stay at optimum level. Based on their different filtration needs and characteristic, they have respective suitable filtration elements. For the rolling mill coolant system, continuous filtration is crucial, so the automative self-cleaning filter is a great choice for this system. When it comes to the hydraulic and lubricating system, the most important point is to remove the tiny metal debris and other impurities generated due to thermalization. Depth filter cartridge can be the best choice for this operation, which can effectively eliminate the undesired micro impurities. Brother Filtration,…
The Paper industry has a centuries-old history, our ancients used the traditional way to produce paper, and now we use advanced technology to produce more delicate and high-quality paper for all kinds of uses. The tissue, the printing, publication, and the packaging, all need paper. Behind the pliable and smooth surface of a piece of paper, there are many procedures that need filtration. The starch slurry, which is the primeval form of the paper requiring filtration to improve the quality and eliminate the undissolved starch particles. The exquisite coated paper, you often find in magazines or the first few pages of a book, is processed by the coating technology. The coating paints also need to be filtered. According to the viscosity level, there are different types of filters suitable for low-viscosity and high-viscosity liquids. Water is the basic and key resource for many industries, pulp & paper is no exception. Using a filtration system to filter lakes or rivers’ water is a cost-effective way to do water resources management. Additionally, wastewater can be reused and lawful discharged after filtration. Filtration plays an important role in the pulp & paper industry, infiltration for this field, automative self-cleaning filter is the most…
