Hollow fibre Membrane is one of the three major types of membrane bioreactor technology. It comprises of straw like vertical fibre bundles where the liquid flows out-to-in due to suction (permeate) pump attached to both the ends of fibre bundle. Fibres are usually provided with some slack, to allow them to move laterally in the flow of air bubbles, which also air lifts the sludge through the fibre bundle surface.
Hollow fibre membranes are used almost exclusively for Submerged MBRs, both for industrial and municipal applications, where they are often favoured for larger installations on the basis of their lower membrane aeration energy demand.
Imemflo Hollow Fiber membrane module is assembled as a complete filtration module. It consists of a stainless-steel cage or skid made up of several elements including hollow fiber membranes of imemflo series. The hollow fiber membranes are designed for MBR plants and Tertiary Treatments. imemflo HFMBR element has a bi-directional suction configuration to enhance filtration performances. HFMBR (Hollow Fiber Membrane Bioreactor ) allows large flux and low investment cost.
PVDF Hollow Fiber Imemflo‘s HFMBR(Hollow Fiber Membrane Bioreactor) - IA/IB elements have a microporous structure in the membrane's surface of 0.04/0.2μm for Optimum Filtration. PVDF materials delivers greater strength & durability.
Imemflo HFMBR-IA/IB Series membranes are made of a strong tubular woven tube and coated with a functional layer of our proprietary permanently hydrophilic PVDF membrane
