Ultrafiltration Membrane System Minimizes Operator Involvement, Handles Fluctuating Feed Water Quality

Posted by UF Membranes Team on Jan 26, 2017 7:45:00 AM

Packaged ultrafiltration membrane systems like WesTech’s AltaPac™ system are more flexible and accommodating of a site’s specific needs than one might think upon hearing the term “packaged.”

One particular East Coast site learned this first-hand, when they came to WesTech looking for a solution for treating a surface water source. The manufacturing company that owned the site wanted to use the water for cleaning their industrial process equipment, as well as pre-treating a portion of the water for a reverse osmosis unit.
