Ultimate Removal Performance The nano-pores of the Seccua-Ultrafilters provide removal characteristics, that meet and exceed regulatory requirements for application of membrane filtration in drinking water treatment. The Phoenix has proven to fully remove virus, cyst and bacteria, tested also against US ASTM Standards. It also reliably reduces turbidity to under a level that downstream second barrier devices, like UV-systems, can function at efficiently.
Integrated Membrane Testing The Phoenix has a fully automated, integrated, state-of-the-art membrane integrity test. It detects membrane damages smaller than the size of pathogens.Together with its ability to monitor the signal of a turbidity meter in the filtrate line of the system (not included), it performs a continuous, indirect integrity test, triggering the integrated, direct membrane-test.
Treats difficult water As the only one of its kind, the Phoenix continuously measures the actual degree of fouling of the membrane - based on a function of flow and differential pressure. The Phoenix automatically reacts to varying feed water conditions and adjusts the frequency of its cleaning cycles accordingly. In addition to a feed-pump it also controls dosing equip- ment in the feed to be able to treat high-color-containing sources using an inline-flocculation-process and achieve highest possible flowrates at maximum rates of removal of color and dissolved organics.
Cleaning-In-Place capability Once the system detects a need for cleaning, it can apply different combinations of cleaning techniques, including pre- and post-flushing, internal backwash or backwash powered by an external pump, and it is even able to automatically perform chemically-enhanced Cleaning-In-Place (CIP): Thereby the Phoenix coordinates a cleaning process including two different chemicals in sequence to allow e.g. high-followed by low-pH cleaning steps to get the system back to start-up conditions.
Remote monitoring- and alert-system As soon as the system detects an operating-error, including a failed membrane-integrity test, but also other differentiated messages, e.g. unsuccessful cleaning sequences, occured water hammer, empty cleaning chemicals and other, it can send out an SMS message to up to ten cell-phones or report to an existing remote monitoring system. Once the unit is hooked up to an existing cellular network through its internal high-speed-modem (optional), latest web-based, remote-control solutions allow the user to access the unit over the internet, change operating parameters and read operating history from the datalogger.
Highest Filtrate output The Phoenix now offers higher filtrate ouput than ever: due to optimized filter-module construction and more membrane area, depending on the water quality, the system achieves a continuous output of up to 640 liters per minute (0.24 MGD) and a short-term peak flow of up to 20 liters per second (317 gpm).
