Compliance
Ultrafiltration helps to meet zero manifesting goals and comply with federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act requirements, as well as state and local discharge regulations.
Automation
The Ultrafiltration System is low maintenance with minimal operator involvement.
Value
As part of the plant assessment, PRAB reviews operating costs such as electrical, water, cleaners, haul-away, manpower and regulatory compliance to get you the most value for your equipment.
Recycle and Reuse
Ultrafiltration reduces the cost of wash water and detergents by as much as 75% when calculating the costs of replacement chemicals, heating and disposal.

Ultrafiltration extends the life of washwater, floor scrubber and vibratory/tumbling water.

PRAB’s line of Ultrafiltration Systems are designed to separate organics, emulsified oils and suspended solids from process water, incoming water, wastewater and metalworking coolant reducing oily water volumes by as much as 98% without the use of chemical additives. For this reason, Ultrafiltration membrane technology is quickly becoming the fluid waste management process of choice over conventional industrial filtration methods.

PRAB Water & Wastewater is a leader in fluid management, Ultrafiltration, wastewater reuse, and Reverse Osmosis pre-treatment with partnerships that span globally. Our Ultrafiltration Systems reduce the cost of wash water and detergents by as much as 75% when calculating the costs of replacement chemicals, heating and disposal. Effluent water can be discharged to sewer or reused. These systems offer a robust design which effectively removes suspended solids and organic impurities from a variety of different streams for optimum water management.

PRAB’s Ultrafiltration Systems and wastewater treatment technologies will help you meet zero manifesting goals and comply with federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act requirements, as well as state and local discharge regulations.

Ultrafiltration (UF) is a pressure-driven process that removes organics, emulsified oils, metal hydroxides, emulsions, dispersed material, suspended solids, silica, and other large molecular weight materials from water and other solutions. Ultrafiltration membranes are characterized by their molecular weight cut-off. Ultrafiltration excels at the clarification of solutions containing suspended solids, bacteria, and high concentrations of macromolecules, including oil and water.

    Existing Design Advantages

  1. Automatic Cleaning Cycle – System goes into a clean-in-place cycle based on reduced permeate output, then switches back to regular fluid processing for a hands-free system.
  2. Automated Process-Tank Fill – System includes a pneumatic diaphragm pump used to transfer pre-process fluid from the customer’s tank or pit.
  3. Allen Bradley color touch screen with Micro 850 PLC standard.
  4. VFD Controlled Process Pump – Allows for soft-start and efficient control of the pump motor.
  5. 3-Way Pneumatic Ball-Valves – Allows automatic switching from normal processing state to clean-in-place process utilizing only one pump.

    New Design Advantages

  1. One Skid Design – All components and tank assemblies mounted on one skid weldment that can be easily moved by forklift (without fluid).
  2. 304 Stainless Steel Tank – Dual tank weldment minimizes space requirements
  3. Easy Maintenance – all devices mounted toward front face of unit, allowing easy access during maintenance procedures.
  4. Slant-Bottom Tank Design – Concentrates separated solids toward drain valves on each end of the tank for ease of removal/maintenance cleaning.
  5. Upgradeable – Both units have the ability to add additional membranes with simple alterations to the system (smaller unit available in 6/8/12 membranes, large unit available in 12/16/20/24 membranes).
  6. Fully Pre-Wired and Tested – System is fully wired/tested before shipment for ease of installation.
  7. Easy-To-Add Options – Additional components can be mounted over the tank area to further conserve space (i.e. CF-5 tramp-oil separator, bag-type pre-filter assembly).

Benefits & Features
