Water Planet’s award-winning IntelliFlux® self-adaptive and autonomous ultrafiltration system controls were developed to optimize the performance of MF/UF membrane filtration systems to produce more water at less cost. When filter influent conditions change, IntelliFlux adapts and adjusts flux optimization options in real-time to ensure stable system performance with maximum water recovery, process uptime and membrane useful life. This unique control system delivers peace-of-mind to plant operators and engineers who would have to otherwise manually engage flux optimization actions to adjust for changes in operating conditions.
No matter the influent conditions or membrane material properties, IntelliFlux assures maximum uptime at the highest sustainable flux, thus minimizing cost, down-time, energy, chemical usage and operator attention. During periods of increased solids loading, IntelliFlux accelerates flux maintenance actions, thereby maintaining the target treated water throughput while protecting membranes from becoming fouled too quickly or filter media from being overloaded and potentially passing critical contaminants. Moreover, during periods of reduced solids loading, the system spreads out flux maintenance actions, maximizing water recovery while minimizing chemical consumption and process downtime.
IntelliFlux can work with any membrane filtration equipment that requires periodic flux maintenance via backwashing, cleaning or regeneration. IntelliFlux works with both ceramic and polymeric MF and UF membranes. Water Planet’s expert computer programmers, control engineers and process engineers are always working to improve, extend and adapt IntelliFlux controls for our filtration system OEM and integration partners.
