Membrane Performance Enhancer Technology

Use PermaCare™ MPE™ polymer with Nalco's patented technology to improve membrane flux in membrane bioreactors (MBR's). Your plant can reduce costs with PermaCare MPE by increasing system throughput without adding equipment or membranes, minimising the labour required to clean membranes, minimising plant downtime for cleaning and minimising labour for operating membranes (such as scouring air).

Product Details

Get the advantages of enhanced membrane performance:

  • Increases the critical flux and decreases the membrane fouling rate. 
  • Accommodates peak flow conditions more easily, and allows for higher peak flow operation without flux loss. 
  • Better permeate quality: reduction in TOC, COD, TSS, colour and turbidity; increased removal of pathogens, including viruses and phages. 
  • Better performance at low temperature. 
  • Better biological stability to bulking/upset conditions 
  • Foam removal and prevention 
  • Reduction of polymer consumption in sludge dewatering 
  • Increases sludge age, with concurrent reduction of sludge production, with no loss of membrane permeability.

How PermaCare MPE enhances membrane performance: 

PermaCare MPE increases the critical flux (the maximum flux above which rapid and irreversible fouling occurs) for a membrane bioreactor. In bench-scale, pilot, and full-scale trials, MPE50 demonstrated reduced membrane fouling, helping membrane bioreactors achieve flux improvements of 30-100%.
