Water Management Australia’s Microfiltration Plants are used for:

  • Water treatment¬†encompassing the removal of suspended solids, including up to 4-log removal of bacteria
  • Waste water treatment-biomass sedimentation using membrane bioreactors (MBRs), tertiary¬†treatment of waste for reuse
  • Food & beverage treatment, such as clarification of beer, fruit juices & other liquid beverages
  • Resource recovery of inks, textile sizing agents & electrodeposition paints

WMA’s Microfiltration Plants are commonly used as pretreatment to reverse osmosis plants for bulk removal of suspended solids & bacteria. WMA’s Microfiltration Plants are frequently used to replace conventional clarification & filtration plants.

The advantages of WMA’s Microfiltration Plants over conventional clarification & filtration include:

  • There is minimal need for treatment chemicals, such as: coagulants, flocculants, acid or caustic
  • There is consistent effluent quality, regardless of the raw feed water quality
  • The plants are extremely compact
  • They have simple automation & require minimal operator attention
