About Layne PTFE Membrane Cassettes
The PTFE membrane cassettes enhance municipal and industrial membrane bioreactor ("MBR") wastewater treatment by clarifying wastewater from within the biological treatment system, eliminating downstream clarifiers. In addition, the PTFE membrane cassette system provides the following advantages: 1. Allows for easy retrofits, as the new cassette is designed to fit most existing MBR rack-type systems. This allows the user to easily upgrade to the more durable PTFE membranes. 2. Provides lower operating costs due to the superior surface properties of the PTFE membranes. 3. Delivers six times the tensile strength of polyvinylidene difluoride ("PVDF"), which reduces leaks and failures that are often associated with competing membranes. 4. Supports the highest operating temperature of any available membrane, operating in environments up to 122°F. 5. Provides strong resistance to chemicals with a pH tolerance of 0-14. PTFE can be used in harsh applications and will outperform and outlast competing membranes, especially in harsh environments. 6. Requires no surface pre-treatment before putting them into service. They can be stored dry, unlike PVDF elements, which have to be kept wet after they are put in service, which provides for a much easier and cost effective installation.
