J.F. Cavanaugh has awarded The City of Port Huron, Michigan WWTP project to SSI in conjunction with Tetra-Tech Engineers. Originally designed as an EPDM fine bubble disc system, it has been upgraded to include SSI’s patent-pending PTFE coated EPDM membranes, which have shown exceptional life and efficiency over time in other WWTP’s.


The project includes 7000 pcs of SSI AFD270-PTFE. A determining factor for the City to go with PTFE was the fact that these tanks are covered, and as such it is considered a confined space environment. Access to the tanks is limited, as well.
