600 m³ of clean water per hour using ultrafiltration from inge watertechnologies

Posted: Tuesday 4th January 2011

Arnsberg’s municipal utility company and the local association of water suppliers are each investing some 4.5 million euros in a project to expand their water treatment plants in Möhnebogen and Langel. Cutting-edge ultrafiltration technology has been chosen as the method of surface water treatment: The German ultrafiltration specialists inge watertechnologies will be supplying their very latest product innovation, the “T-Rack vario”, a compact module rack system that takes up a minimal footprint. Each of the two new facilities will have the capacity to remove viruses, bacteria and suspended solids from some 600 m³ of water per hour.

The Arnsberg municipal utility company provides some 18,500 houses with water, a task that requires several million liters of clean drinking water every single day. To ensure adequate supplies, the municipal utility company operates four of its own water treatment plants and obtains additional drinking water from the Arnsberg association of water suppliers. Ulrich Midderhoff, the director of Arnsberg’s municipal utilities, says: “We live in an environment that hosts a range of industrial activities, and that obviously has an effect on the surface water. Our job as a water supplier is to ensure that we always provide our customers with perfectly safe drinking water - that's why we and the Arnsberg association of water suppliers are each investing some 4.5 million euros in the Möhnebogen and Langel water treatment plants.”

In Arnsberg the ultrafiltration technology of the global technology leader from Germany, inge watertechnologies AG, was chosen. Inge’s patented, break-proof Multibore membrane is considered to be the most reliable solution on the market. inge watertechnologies designs, develops and produces its membranes and its “T-Rack” module and rack systems at its headquarters near Munich.

The two waterworks will each incorporate 96 of the “dizzer XL 0.9 MB 60 W” modules developed by inge housed in the T-Rack vario. The T-Rack is hydrodynamically optimized and has a footprint up to 60 percent smaller than conventional rack systems. Its modular design enables it to be tailored to each customer's specific requirements. Each row can be operated as a separate filtration line, ensuring maximum flexibility in day-to-day operations.
