Membrane Filtration and Separation | How FMX Can Reduce Operating Costs and Downtime
Traditional wastewater membrane filtration and separation technologies are not always suitable for high viscosity and high-solids applications, often suffering from frequent fouling, causing downtime and increasing maintenance costs. Replacing parts is expensive and chemical backwashes, while slowing down your operation, also incur costs in both purchasing and disposal.

FMX provides long-term economic benefits while improving the filtration, separation, concentration, and recovery of wastewater and solids in your chemical processing, bio-tech, pharmaceutical, or food and beverage filtration applications.
- High-Fouling Resistance = Less Flushing, Chemical Cleaning, or Membrane Replacement
- High Permeate Flow Rate = Higher Throughput
- High Recovery Rate = Simplified Process in a Single Pass with High Feed Solid
- High Dependability = Less Downtime and Replacement Parts

Membrane Wastewater Filtration | How FMX Membrane Filtration and Separation Works
|The system makes use of Karman Vortices to generate strong turbulence over the surface of the membrane, preventing the membranes from fouling. This is done by using energy efficient rotating blades between membrane surfaces, carrying away foulants into the feed stream. The bodies of the blades are made with lightweight plastics specially designed to resist chemicals and corrosion.

The system is modular, made up of membrane modules which can be stacked together for extra capacity to create a block. The system can be taken apart for service on-site, providing you with quick and easy repairs to only the damaged components.
