About ? Biopulse
The Biopulse MBR concept is an energy optimized process for reliable and economic treatment of medium strength wastewater. The goal is to treat the wastewater under all circumstances, independently of the feed flow and quality fluctuations resulting in constant permeate flow at any time. In order to achieve this, Berghof has developed an intelligent system which continuously analyses the situation and responds automatically to varying conditions whenever this is required. This reduces the risk of shutdown or capacity-loss. Under regular flow conditions the system will operate at a low velocity of 1 to 1.5 m/s, with an average energy consumption of only 0.4-0.6 kWh/m3.
The Biopulse MBR concept is based on the same membrane as Berghof Bioflow, but it makes use of the unique feature of the HyMem 8mm PVDF LE (Low Energy) membrane: it can be backwashed. The membrane module array is similar to the Berghof BioFlow principle. Activated sludge from the bioreactor is pumped, at an optimized flow rate, through the externally positioned tubular 8mm LE membranes. An integrated automatic backwashing program controls the backwash cycles and backwash time in order to ensure reliable operation under economic conditions.
