KMS Installs Puron Plus Package System in Canada
Koch Membrane Systems (KMS), a global leader in the development and manufacture of membrane-based filtration technologies, recently announced the commissioning of a Puron Plus packaged MBR system in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The system provides a compact and turnkey wastewater treatment solution that is fully automated and provides consistent high-quality effluent for safe discharge or reuse. 
Due to Canada’s challenging climate and dispersed populations outside of city areas, simple and reliable decentralized treatment systems are often preferred to treat municipal wastewater streams. As a differentiated membrane and system provider, KMS has been selected for this project due to its ability to provide a comprehensive solution with market leading technology. For this project, KMS partnered with Proteus Water Inc., a Canadian company focused on providing integrated wastewater treatment solutions for small communities.
Capable of treating an average design flow of approximately 100,000 gpd of wastewater, the Puron Plus P-100 system selected for this project features KMS’ latest innovative and patented Pulsion MBR technology.
