AQQA® is used in Industrial wastewater treatment to:

  • separate the sludge from the clear water in membrane bio reactors
  • constitute the final filtration of the effluent of standard sewage treatment plants (tertiary treatment)
  • keep specialized bacteria in the system, that can biologically degrade organic matter
  • enable Zero Liquid Discharge: prefiltration for reverse osmosis systems

AQQA® is typically used in these industries:

  • food producing industry (e.g. beverage, brewery, fish producing industry): reduce BOD and COD with membrane bio reactors, improve the effluent quality, reuse of water
  • pulp and paper industry: close loops in the production cycle
  • all industries using standard media filters: recycle backwash waste water
  • automotive industry: close loops in the production cycle, e.g. spray testing the body for tightness against rainwater
  • animal rendering: remove bacteria, virus and proteins from the waste water

How can you benefit from using AQQA® in industrial applications?

  • the unique backflush capability of AQQA® in conjunction with the robust design and the big gap between the plates can cope with most challenging waters
  • industrial applications can often not be changed to make them 100% compatible with membrane processes. Then it is necessary to apply cleaning strategies for the membranes, that guarantee a sustainable flux. AQQAplate is made to be backflushed with chemicals in situ. The Cleaning in the Air Technology enables fully automated membrane cleaning
  • The AQQA ® box system can easily be integrated into tanks. The high packing density ensures small foot prints
