With the latest advances in ceramic ultrafiltration (UF) membrane manufacturing the capital costs are now competitive to polymeric UF membranes. The presentation will review performance data of the latest ceramic UF membranes in installations and pilot trials treating backwash water recovery and secondary effluent for reuse. The data highlights the operating flexibility afforded with ceramic membranes beyond their advantages in life time. A life cycle cost analysis is also presented based on the data which compares the capital and operating costs of the ceramic UF membrane system to a typical pressurized polymeric UF membrane system.
This presentation is available to AMTA Members only.
