Membrane Performance Enhancer Technology

Use PermaCare® MPE™ polymer with Nalco's patented technology to improve membrane flux in membrane bioreactors (MBR's). Your plant can reduce costs with PermaCare MPE by:

  • Increasing system throughput without adding equipment or membranes.
  • Minimizing the labor required to clean membranes. 
  • Minimizing plant downtime for cleaning. 
  • Minimizing labor for operating membranes (such as scouring air).

How PermaCare MPE enhances membrane performance:
PermaCare MPE increases the critical flux (the maximum flux above which rapid and irreversible fouling occurs) for a membrane bioreactor. In bench-scale, pilot, and full-scale trials, MPE50 demonstrated reduced membrane fouling, helping membrane bioreactors achieve flux improvements of 30-100%.

Get the advantages of enhanced membrane performance:

  • Increases the critical flux and decreases the membrane fouling rate. 
  • Accommodates peak flow conditions more easily, and allows for higher peak flow operation without flux loss. 
  • Better permeate quality: reduction in TOC, COD, TSS, color and turbidity; increased removal of pathogens, including viruses and phages. 
  • Better performance at low temperature. 
  • Better biological stability to bulking/upset conditions 
  • Foam removal and prevention 
  • Reduction of polymer consumption in sludge dewatering 
  • Increases sludge age, with concurrent reduction of sludge production, with no loss of membrane permeability.
