KMS Showcases Water Management Solutions at SIWW 2012
Published Date: June 7, 2012
Koch Membrane Systems, Inc. (KMS) will display its innovative solutions to reduce, reuse, and recycle water and wastewater at Singapore International Water Week. The event takes place July 1-5 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, Marina Bay Sands.

KMS offers cost-effective, high-quality water treatment membranes and membrane filtration systems that complement SIWW’s 2012 theme, "Water Solutions for Liveable and Sustainable Cities." The TARGA®II Hollow Fiber ultrafiltration system, the PURON® membrane bioreactor (MBR) system, and FLUID SYSTEMS® TFC® reverse osmosis (RO) systems are used in several large-scale initiatives in regions of the world such as China and Australia, where efforts are underway to reduce industrial demand on the public water supplies.

As part of a water reuse initiative in Shanxi Province, China, for example, engineers at a major power plant chose FLUID SYSTEMS RO technology to purify cooling tower blow-down to make it suitable as a source for boiler makeup water, thus conserving the municipal water supply. TARGA cartridges make up the RO pretreatment system. TARGA cartridges also provide an effective RO pretreatment system at an electrical power plant in Liaoning Province, where seawater is used for the facility’s water supply.

PURON MBR systems, often in combination with RO systems, offer energy-efficient, sustainable water reuse solutions for Australian communities facing water shortages. PURON MBR modules are well suited for wastewater treatment and reuse as a means to conserve fresh water supplies. Biologically-treated municipal and industrial wastewater is a potential resource for high quality water for both potable and nonpotable reuse applications including irrigation, production of industrial process water, and aquifer recharge.
