Service: Mains Water Pretreatment – Pharma
System: UF System Expansion
Mains water microfiltration systems for the filtration of colloids and particulate to supply the downstream RO plants with a feed water SDI <3.

The new MF systems were required to mimic existing MF systems already on site. This allows:

> Synergy of operation, maintenance, and spares
> Integration with the feed water, backwash water and filtrate storage tanks
> Integration with the site central server and control room


BHF designed and locally fabricated 2 x 30,000 l/hr MF systems for installation and integration into the existing water plant facility.

Project Outcome

Local design and fabrication of the MF plants were designed and integrated into the existing tank, distribution and control processes with remote monitoring in the control room.

The automated backwash systems produce a consistent high purity water to the downstream RO systems. On a colloidal rich surface water supply, this offer a very low cost operation with minimal consumable costs and long life between MF module changeout.
