Submerged Membrane Unit for MBR (Membrane Bioreactor)
"M-fine" is a submerged type membrane unit for MBR that employs flat sheet membrane
with a unique structure which has various advantages compared with a conventional flat membrane unit.
Comparing to a conventional activated sludge process, the MBR system does not require the installation of a settling tank because treated water is directly sucked from the activated sludge tank through the membrane. For that reason, the MBR system can reduces the space and maintenance costs, and makes highly-cleaned water which can be directly re-used certain purposes.
Facing the problem of global water shortage, we hopes to contribute to preservation of water resources and effective re-use of water by means of this membrane unit.
