Spiral Brush Filter

  • Recover 98%+ wastewater as filtrate with reduced TSS and BOD.
  • Screen wastewater to reduce sewer surcharges
  • Concentrated solids can be an animal feed component or hauled to digester to create biogas
  • Screen digester effluent to retain carrier particles (e.g., activated carbon) used in high rate digesters
  • Screen wastewater before advanced filtration with UF or FO

Stainless Steel Ultrafiltration

  • Recover 85-95% of brewery wastewater as a transparent permeate, suitable for sewer discharge with lower surcharges or land application/irrigation where allowed
  • Concentrate the organic matter in wastewater for animal feeds or to haul to nearby anaerobic digesters to create biogas
  • Filter wastewater ahead of advanced filtration with FO

Forward Osmosis

  • Reclaim 80-95% of wastewater as clean water suitable for reuse, discharge, or sewer disposal with low or no surcharges
  • Create a liquid concentrate suitable for animal feeds or hauling to a wastewater treatment plant or digester for disposal
  • Reduce freshwater consumption through beneficial reuse
