SymBrane™ Tubular Crossflow Ultrafiltration Membrane System
Memos Membrane Modules Systems
SymBrane™ technology features inside-out tubular crossflow filtration that uses a pressure gradient across the semi-permeable membrane to separate low and high molecular weight solutes. The system effluent, called permeate, passes through the membrane wall while suspended solids, macro-molecules, bacteria, and some viruses contained within the feed solution are retained and exit as the concentrate.
Symphonic Waters’ partnership with German membrane manufacturer MEMOS Membranes Modules Systems GmbH allows Symphonic to be the exclusive US provider of MEMOS membrane modules.
The SymBrane™ system has a strong track record in industrial applications. Our engineering team’s experience and understanding of both bioreactor and membrane system design is the key to the success in these high quality installations.
Competitive Advantage of SymBrane™ System
10% more membrane surface area per module
Excellent permeate and effluent quality with a small footprint
Separate reusable 316 SS module housing with replaceable membrane elements
Replacing only the interior membrane element = significant cost savings during module replacement
Stand alone system for easy maintenance and cleaning
Improved membrane durability when compared to standard fiberglass housed modules
US module stock available
Complete instrumentation package with US sourced, high quality components
Pilot unit available for testing purposes
An industry-leading, full 2-year warranty unlike other UF membrane manufacturers who provide a 1 or 2 year prorated warranty

SymBrane™ System Applications
Aside from artificially high ammonia levels, the SymBrane™ system permeate in the below case study would have been suitable for direct surface water discharge.
Note that this particular site adds ammonia as a nutrient to their treatment process, thus artificially increasing ammonia levels greatly.
SymBrane™ system effluent quality in aerobic applications is typical of that found with secondary plus tertiary treatment process, yet maintains the capital and operating costs characteristic of a single stage secondary unattended sludge treatment process.
