This paper focuses on a novel technology, blending the high-treated water quality of a membrane with the simplicity of a granular media filter. This “MGF” technology is a direct replacement for filter media and underdrains inside the filter box and operates in gravity mode, using the existing hydraulic profile. Unlike immersed membrane filtration, no vacuum pumps or cleaning equipment are required. This simplifies a retrofit enormously, as a retrofit to an existing filter can be made with almost no changes to the existing filter piping gallery and much of the existing equipment can be reused. The abstract should be added to the program as it demonstrates innovation in advancing membranes through simplification.
