Sustainable Solutions for Future Water Challenges
Rising population levels and more groundwater sources becoming polluted have resulted in clean water becoming increasingly scarce in many countries around the world. As governments and municipal bodies turn to alternative sources of water, such as seawater, brackish water and groundwater, they require cost effective technologies to produce potable water while managing waste water discharge for smart, sustainable water management.
Hyflux has substantial experience in providing sustainable membrane solutions to municipal water, wastewater and desalination sectors. Hyflux products are ISO 109000 certified, filtering out contaminants like cryptosporidium, microorganisms and dissolved salts. Being installed in over 400 locations, including 40% of the world’s seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) pre-treatment systems, our market leading edge and technology know-how in the full water cycle give us unmatched expertise in providing clean, potable water to wastewater reuse for our worldwide clienteles.
Seawater/ Brackish Water Desalination
Reverse osmosis (RO) membrane technology is one of the key processes, but requires pretreatment from ultrafiltration to produce potable water from seawater or brackish water sources. Manufactured under the ISO-9001 certification, Hyflux's Kristal® ultrafiltration (UF) membranes are able to withstand high levels of salinity and possess high rejection qualities.
Seawater Desalination Pre-treatment
High salinity, organic content and microbiological activity pose high fouling risk for the RO membranes, but can be prevented with carefully designed pretreatment. Hyflux’s Standard Membrane Systems (SMS) utilise cutting edge technology that protects the SWRO systems from fouling by delivering consistently high quality filtrate.
SMS produce purified water that complies with World Health Organisation’s (WHO) drinking water standards, promising operational stability and safety for quality production. Kristal® UF membranes are NSF certified, effectively removing viruses and pathogens such as Cryptosporidium from the water source.
Wastewater Treatment and Reuse
Hyflux’s Containerised MBR Systems are designed for the efficient removal of TSS, enhanced BOD, COD, microorganisms and nutrients removal. The systems are modular and portable, minimising footprint and civil costs while ensuring 100% compliance to meet the regulatory levels for discharge standards.
