The MARAPUR concept is a biological wastewater treatment process based on the MBR functional principle. The ultrafiltration of activated sludge takes place in pressure-driven hollow fiber membranes. The vertical membrane modules are installed compactly in a MEGAMODUL. The permeate extraction is accomplished in the cross-flow, which is supported by rinsing aeration. The main process advantages are high filtration performance, excellent operation reliability provided by wastewater fine sieving and reduced cleaning chemicals demand. Wastewater fine sieving with a mesh size of 0.25 mm is an effective measure against membrane clogging by hair and fibers.
