ClearQ® is a submerged membrane with an outside-in hollow fiber membrane system and a maximum pore size of 0.02 μm, which cuts off suspended solids, colloid, bacteria, viruses and giant molecule organic matter. ClearQ® has been designed for Membrane Bioreactors (MBR) and tertiary watertreatment applications. The smoothness of the membrane surface results in an increased resistance against fouling. The smoothness also increases the effectivity of aeration, which gives ClearQ® a low energy consumption. The ClearQ® membranes can be operated at very low pressure, due to the improved hydrophilic material.
Our new model has been designed with a strengthened membrane fiber and a high packing density. The special coating increases its resistance against damage and fouling. With 280 Newton on 1 fiber, the fibers have a very high tensile strength and are striping resistant to 600 kPa. The pores have been equally distributed and have a full sponge structure. With a pH range of 1-13, the membrane has a high chemical resistance. Due to the heightened hydrophilicity, one drop passes the filtration layer within 60 seconds.
The characteristics of ClearQ® enable the extension of periods in between chemical cleanings. Our membrane cassette consist of membranes modules, high quality 316L frames, air diffusers and a permeate aeration pipe. The ClearQ® is furthermore highly suitable for retrofits and has a small ecological footprint.
