Hollow Fiber Membrane Distillation (HFMD) Technology

Low temperature thermal process using hydrophilic membranes to separate TDS from wastewater

•Concentrate is brine slurry

•Permeate is distilled water quality

HFMD solves cost, performance and maintenance challenges  associated with flat sheet MD systems

KMX’s novel approach to membrane distillation includes the following innovations to  improve reliability, performance and reduce costs:

HOLLOW FIBER MEMBRANES

Are optimized for flux/solids/management/strength/multiple fiber materials

SYSTEM DESIGN SIMILAR TO RO

Module, system design & scaling concept identical to RO for easy technology adoption

THERMOPLASTIC MODULE DESIGN

Eliminates costly metals, eliminates corrosion and are pH resistant

LOW TEMPERATURE OPERATIONS

40°C to 75 ° C

ENERGY EFFICIENT SYSTEM DESIGN

Capable of multiple energy inputs (e.g., waste heat, steam, electricity/heat pump, renewable energy) for a lower cost opex

LOW OPERATING PRESSURE

<15 psig

REMOVABLE FIBER ELEMENTS

Low cost assembly and maintenance
