Progressive Water Treatment Reverse Osmosis Rental
Progressive Water Treatment Ultrafiltration Rental
Progressive Water Treatment has several Reverse Osmosis systems and one Ultrafiltration system that are available for pilot studies or on a rental basis.
Units are available designed to produce various gallons-per-minute rates and your choice of filtrate flow percentage recovery rate. Units are built for use in both industrial and municipal pilot projects.
PWT local or factory representatives can provide lease rates and specific capacities based on your site-specific criteria and requirements.
Membrane cleaning can be done at the customer’s site with various chemicals available from Progressive Water Treatment. PWT also offers off-site membrane cleaning as a convenient service to its customers. Progressive Water Treatment utilizes several different membrane cleaning methods, such as forward flush and reverse flush combined with chemical cleaning.
When a forward or reverse flush is applied, membranes are flushed with feed water or permeate. The feed water or permeate flows through the system more rapidly than during the production phase. Because of the more rapid flow and the resulting turbulence, particles that are adhering to the membrane are released and discharged. These particles can only be removed through backward flushing.
When membrane performance has not restored itself sufficiently after flushing, a chemical cleaning process can be applied. During a chemical cleaning process, membranes are flushed using either low or high pH cleaning solutions, depending upon the nature of the foulant. Other cleaners are used when typical cleaning does not return the membrane to normal specifications. In all cases, the membranes are tested prior to cleaning, and the results discussed with the client. That way membranes are not cleaned that may be found to be irreparably damaged when tested.
In the event membranes are damaged or have reached their useful life, Progressive Water Treatment offers a full line of replacement membranes from most of the membrane manufacturers, as well as the replacement service.
Essentially all media has a useful life and must be periodically replaced. Progressive Water Treatment offers a full line of replacement media from most the manufacturers, as well as the replacement service.
