ZeeWeed 1000 Ultrafiltration Membrane

Attain high flow in a small footprint with an immersed ultrafiltration membrane

SUEZ's immersed ZeeWeed 1000 ultrafiltration (UF) membranes are ideal for media filter retrofits and large water treatment plants.  ZeeWeed 1000 membranes are used in direct filtration applications of lake and ground water, settled water, tertiary filtration of wastewater for phosphorus removal or water reuse, and as high quality pretreatment for reverse osmosis.

SUEZ’s ZeeWeed 1000 produce a high-quality treated water, and meet stringent EPA LT2 drinking water standards, with a high removal of pathogens like Cryptosporidium and Giardia and effluent turbidities under 0.1 NTU. 

For clarified domestic wastewater it's possible to produce a high-quality effluent low in suspended solids, turbidity and phosphorus.

NGC Cassette

Next Generation Cassette (NGC)

Overview & Benefits

The Next Generation Cassette is the latest advancement in immersed Ultrafiltration membranes.   It uses an FRP skeleton to create a flexible cassette design, which offers numerous advantages:

  • Compact footprint: the 4 high membrane cassette is an improvement in footprint over the already impressive stainless steel cassette.  The result is less and smaller membrane tanks.

  • Simplicity: the modular building blocks allow you to chain multiple cassettes together, resulting in fewer tank connections, and the chance to work with longer tanks.
  • Separated aeration grid: This reduces the height of the NGC cassette, and permits the cassettes to rest on the tank floor, as opposed to being suspended in the tank.
  • Energy savings: Use 25% less energy for aeration with the taller cassette.

How It Works

How It Works 

The ZeeWeed 1000 is an immersed Ultrafiltration hollow fiber membrane.  The membranes are installed in a cassette, very much resembling books in a book case.  The membrane cassettes are installed in a tank. 

Feed water enters the membrane tank and surrounds the thousands of membrane fibres contained within.  A vacuum is drawn on the inside of the membrane to suck the feed water to the inside of the membrane through many microscopic pores, resulting in a clean filtered water.  The suction can be created by a pump, or simply by siphon alone.  Particulates and bacteria are too large to pass and so remain in the membrane tank outside of the membrane fibers.

Periodically, water filtration is stopped for cleaning, and the flow of water is reversed. Clean water is pushed from the inside of the membrane fibres and flows to the outside.  This pushes off all the material that has accumulated on the outside surface of the membrane and flushes it to waste. At the same time, air is applied to the bottom of the module to scour the membrane surface and aid in the cleaning process.   The tank is drained of all backwash waste, then refilled with fresh water, and filtration begins again. 

These cycles of filtration and backwash happen automatically so that operation is simple and membranes operate in top form.
