Solofra , South Italy , is the biggest WWTP for tannery sewage in Italy and is among the largest in Europe . Incoming waste water flow is 9600 m3/day. Usual sludges concentration in the process are 10-14 kg/m3. Salts are as usual in tannery plus high carbonate concentration in the local water supply.
In early 2009 after a few weeks a lot of membranes popped out from a new aeration system supplied by a competitor.
The client ran tests with SSI membranes, including SSI’s patented PTFE coated membranes. In July 2009 we supplied 5500 SSI membranes PTFE 2×2 mm slit. These membranes were installed in August 2009.
The membranes are working quite well ; workmen in the plant are telling us the SSI PTFE membranes are “ walking like strong mules ……”.
Service from Tecneco Service and SSI at the beginning of the story to face and solve the problem successfully removed a big headache for this client.
