Mobile Ultrafiltration System
Natural disasters and emergencies may damage water sources and the water supply grid, disrupting water supply.
EMS has designed the Granite 1 mobile water system exactly for these situations.
The system produces 120 m3/ day palatable drinking water - One system is sufficient to serve 6,000 people (in emergencies)
All system components are trailer mounted. System weight allows hauling by a pickup truck.
Water treatment is performed by Ultrafiltration (UF) membranes - a technology that ensures removal of particles (suspended & colloidal) and microorganisms.
UF - A membrane separation process, wherein an applied pressure forces liquid to pass through a semipermeable membrane.
The membrane is perforated with 0.02 micron pores.
UF filtration is a barrier for particles (suspended and colloidal), bacteria and virus.
Constant permeate quality - regardless of feed water quality.
During the filtration cycle, removed particles accumulate on membrane surface (and inside the pores). Particles are removed by a short, periodic backwash.
Membrane structure - hollow fiber.
System is equipped with:
· Diesel generator - allowing operation when electricity is not available
· Ultrafiltration (UF).
· Self priming feed pump - Allows raw water pumping from open source (river / lake) or directly from water distribution pipeline.
· Flow control valve with electric actuator, for maintaining a constant feed flow.
· Feed prefiltration with automatic self cleaning filter - designed to protect membranes against damage from coarse particles.
· Backwash system.
· Product chlorination system.
System designed for quick set up and operation and fully automatic operation
