SEE MEMBRANE FILTRATION DIFFERENTLY.
CORNCOB's Dynamic Membrane (DM) Cartridge unites the entire membrane system into a single, compact assembly. Static membranes, such as spiral wound or tubular, involve a complex array of small vessels, interconnecting plumbing and, in some cases, excessive space.
The cartridge assembly is braced together by a durable frame that's constructed from insert rails. The railed frame enables an operator to move the cartridge in and out of the pressure vessel in minimal time. In fact, replacing a cartridge could require less than an hour from initial system shutdown to being fully operational and running at peak performance.
The ‘DM' Cartridge holds all principle membrane sub-assembly components, including the central shaft, multiple membrane stacks, hubs, gaskets, and seals.
Rail bars encircle the entire cartridge assembly and serve dual purposes: 1) Structural stability and support to the cartridge while inside the pressure vessel 2) Positional cartridge engagement inside the pressure vessel.
OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY (OEI)
— Quick, easy cartridge replacement requires only minutes to replace.
— The rail system design ensures accurate cartridge placement reducing human error.
— During routine membrane servicing, the system remains in full operation mode by inserting a spare cartridge.
COSTS SAVINGS OPPORTUNITY
— A simple, slide-in-place cartridge exchange minimizes the need for multiple operators.
— Minimal operator training required
— Cartridges are refurbish-able - reducing membrane purchases and costs
GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY / WATER STEWARDSHIP
— Reduce footprint - eliminates hundreds of canister housing units
— Cartridge can be recycled and reused
Compact in size, the 'DM' cartridge contains the entire membrane assembly in a single, easy-to-handle component.
A wheeled cradle aids the operator in transporting the cartridge assembly and helps guide the cartridge into direct alignment with the pressure vessel. Foot-locking caster wheels secure the cart in place for the safe and secure insertion or removal of the cartridge.
The operator aligns the insert rails of the cartridge frame with treatment vat mounting rails; the cartridge can easily be pushed into place.
Inner mounting rails are attached to the interior surface of the pressure vessel, ensuring precise cartridge placement. During operation, the mount rails provide cartridge support and maintain its positioning within the vessel.
