New ultrafiltration system for bottled water company.

Project Description: 80 000l/h drinking water for bottled water
Process Configuration: Borehole water Filtration with Memcor Ultrafiltration Membranes
Product Water Quality: Potable Quality with NTU < 0.1
Year Completed: Phase I – 2010,  Phase II – 2016

First Phase:

In 2010 QFS was awarded the tender to build a new filtration system for a bottled water company in Heidelberg.  QFS successfully installed a Memcor Ultrafiltration Plant that delivered 40 000l water/per hour.  The unit is easy to operate and once it’s in service, operation is automated based on water demand.  An automatic backwash is carried out when necessary, typically every 20 to 60 minutes of ultrafiltration, depending on feed water quality.  A Clean in Place (CIP) system allows chemical cleaning cycles to be automatically performed on the unit when required.  The plant is a huge success and has been running smoothly in operation for 7 years now.

Second phase:  another 40 000l/hour added

QFS was contacted again in 2016 for negotiations to expand the plant to double its capacity.  The client was still so pleased with the first Memcor Ultrafiltration plant that they opted to use the same technology.  QFS offered the new and improved Memcor CPII Ultrafiltration membranes. The design allows disassembly of individual module housings to remove the modules inside them without dismantling the module array or the pipework connected to it.

QFS applied their specialized skills to design, manufacture, install, commission, maintain and support the plant.  The plant has helped the client to meet their efficient water demand for bottling.
