ZW700B using SevenBore* fiber technology
GE’s ZW700B inside-out UF membranes use a blended polyethersulphone (PES), allowing the membrane to stay permanently hydrophilic and reduce the fouling tendency.
When compared to granular filter media and cartridge filters, the ZeeWeed* 700B membrane produces superior water quality and is virtually unaffected by variable raw water quality.
ZeeWeed 700B Features
- Optimal removal of particulates, bacteria and viruses
- Uses SevenBore fiber technology with an inside-out flow orientation
- PES membrane fibers with 7 bores - provide high mechanical strength (10x that of single fibers) and ability to operate in a wide range of pH
- Typical applications include: pretreatment for reverse osmosis, high quality industrial process, non-water applications like juice, wine and beer clarification, high pressure offshore EOR and 4 log virus removal.
GE announced that it has acquired IMT Solutions, a private Netherlands-based manufacturer of ultrafiltration and microfiltration membranes for water treatment.
The Kuwait project converts 100 MGD (378,000 m3/day) of municipal effluent to 85 MGD (320,000 m3/day) of high quality reclaimed water to be used for agriculture.
